The Palestinian Authority Is Praising Its Children for Dying While Killing Jews

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has reported extensively on the Palestinian Authority (PA) policy of convincing children to seek Martyrdom — death for Allah — while fighting Israel. We continue to see the results of this indoctrination, as parents of terrorists report that their children had requested to die as martyrs, just as they had been taught.

Father of 16-year-old terrorist Khaled Al-Uruq: “[Khaled Al-Uruq] is not the first Martyr and not the last, praise Allah. He asked for [Martyrdom] and achieved it, praise Allah. He always told me: ‘I want to die as a Martyr.’ Praise Allah, [the conditions] were enabled and he achieved it.” [emphasis added]

On one hand, the PA, through its official television channel, seeks to portray Al-Uruq as a hero for confronting Israel. On the other hand, the PA, through its official daily, Wafa, also tries to advance the claim that the 16-year-old Al-Uruq was a victim by publishing an innocent-looking picture of him after he was shot and killed in Ramallah.

At the same time, another picture of Khaled Al-Uruq has been circulating online in which he is prominently featured holding a rifle with his finger on the trigger.

It is of note that according to Wafa, Khaled’s father — the same father who praised Allah for making his son a Martyr — is also an officer in the Palestinian intelligence services.

This incident is just the latest of many instances reported by Palestinian Media Watch, where minors notify their relatives or friends of their desire to die as Martyrs and then go and perpetrate violent attacks in which there is a high likelihood that they will die. They are then used by the PA to claim that Israel is targeting children, while at the same time, these terrorists are glorified by the PA as Martyrs who have taken heroic action.

The PA’s promotion of child Martyrdom is blatant child abuse, as young children are taught that their life’s goal should be to die a young hero. Indeed, as once stated by a young girl on Fatah’s Facebook page, “our weapon is our Islam and our ammunition is our children.”

Palestinian Islamic Jihad Releases New Propaganda Video of Israeli Hostage

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group on Tuesday released a short propaganda video featuring Israeli hostage Alexander (Sasha) Trufanov, 28, who was kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists during Hamas’ Oct. 7 massacre across southern Israel.

The 30-second undated video shows Trufanov, an Amazon employee, identifying himself and saying that he will soon discuss what has happened to him and other hostages in Gaza.

Similar videos have been released by terrorists groups in Gaza. Israel has lambasted them as psychological warfare.

Trufanov’s mother said in a video released by the family that she was happy to see her son after all this time, but “it was heartbreaking” that he had been a hostage for so long.

Trufanov was an engineer at the Israeli microelectronics company Annapurna Labs, which Amazon owns.

Hamas-led Palestinian terrorists abducted over 250 people during their Oct. 7 onslaught. Trufanov was kidnapped alongside his mother, grandmother, and girlfriend.

All three were released as part of a temporary ceasefire agreement negotiated in November. His father, Vitaly Trufanov, was one of the 1,200 people killed during the Hamas massacre.

“The proof of life from Alexsander (Sasha) Trufanov is additional evidence that the Israeli government must give a significant mandate to the negotiating team,” the Hostages Families Forum, which represents the families of the hostages, said in a statement.

More than 120 hostages remain in Gaza, which is ruled by Hamas. Islamic Jihad is a separate but allied terrorist organization in the Palestinian enclave. Both are backed by Iran, which provides them with money, weapons, and training.

Negotiations brokered by Qatar, Egypt, and the US to reach a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas in Gaza have been stalled for weeks.
