Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas applauds girl chanting on death as a Martyr
An example of Palestinian Authority promotion of Martyrdom, a young girl at a Children's Day Event delivers a speech expressing her desire to reclaim Jerusalem and the "homeland" through Martyrdom (death for Allah). PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is seen in the video applauding the girl's speech.

"Even if all the Jews arrived (in Israel) seeking refuge with the monkeys (Israelis) and scaring the lions (Arabs), we will never accept compensation for our land. There is no substitute for Jerusalem! In Palestine there are brave people who fight the worst oppression. Our death is like life. My homeland is the invaders' grave. I will walk 1,000 miles even if I die there as a Martyr. All together, to Jerusalem! To Jerusalem!" [Mahmoud Abbas applauds]

The above clip was translated and documented by Palestinian Media Watch:

Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.

PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide.

PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
