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!”
