TRANSCRIPT of video: Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake: “I’ll quote [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas: … ‘Until the last day of my life, we won’t stop this support. It’s important’ … The family of every Palestinian prisoner receives social aid. We’re proud of this, not ashamed of it, and we say this openly, because it’s our national, human, and moral obligation, and the obligation of the struggle. It is supported by the Palestinian leadership and by the Palestinian government.” [Official PA TV, PLO Institutions, Feb. 26, 2018]

Fatah: “How wonderful and mighty you are,
O flag of Palestine,
when you are soaked in the blood of the Martyrs”

by Nan Jacques Zilberdik

A bloodied Palestinian flag lying on the ground is reason to rejoice according to Abbas’ Fatah Movement’s Bethlehem branch, which posted the photo above with text glorifying the spilling of “the blood of the Martyrs”:

An image of a man in an Arab headdress leaning over barbed wire and planting a flower with bleeding hands was also posted by Fatah. Accompanying text emphasized that it is with “blood” that Palestinians are “sowing the land”:

The PA and Fatah continuously state that “all means” are legitimate in the “struggle against the occupation” and in the process of building a Palestinian state. “All means” include the use of violence and terror – when these are viewed as beneficial. Therefore Fatah repeatedly promotes the ideal of Martyrdom-death and spilling one’s blood for “Palestine.”

Palestinian Media Watch has reported on the PA and Fatah’s encouragement of Palestinians to “water the soil with your blood,” and PA leaders’ appreciation and veneration for the blood of the “Martyrs” – the majority of whom are terrorists killed during their attacks against Israelis. One example was PA governor of Ramallah Laila Ghannam who glorified the “Martyrs” for “perfuming the ground with the scent of their blood.”

Fatah also posted an image of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas with the text above promoting “sowing the land” with blood:

The image shows Abbas and a tree. In the upper left corner is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. [Facebook page of the Fatah Movement – Bethlehem Branch, March 31, 2018]

Fatah posted the above posts the day after tens of thousands of Palestinians gathered on the border between Gaza and Israel in what was called “the March of Return.” Hamas had called for a “peaceful” demonstration, but riots ensued led by Hamas activists, and Palestinians threw rocks and fire bombs at Israeli military across the border and also opened fire on them. Shooting at main instigators and those breaching the security fence, the Israeli army killed 18 Palestinians, the majority of whom were Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists.
