Western culture (and Israel) is so far removed from the Palestinian culture of death which glorifies Islamic martyrdom that strategies to try to confront such a culture are often lacking. The Palestinian “resistance” is well known in the Palestinian territories, as well as to Islamic countries which stand by their Palestinian brothers. Jew-hatred is endemic and constant in 1400 years of Islamic history, as it is supported by Islamic texts.
Children are also indoctrinated to fight the so-called “good cause” and participate in “resistance” against the State of Israel.
Listen here to the one of many dads who is proud his own child died as a “martyr”:
What is most horrifying is that the Palestinian “resistance” has become a pet cause at Western colleges and universities.

A source of pride for us, for Palestine, and for the sake of supporting the prisoners… I’m very grateful. I’m so amazed and happy that my son died as a Martyr and that I’m leading him today as a groom. He is going to meet the prophets, the Martyrs, and the righteous. The angels will carry him and say: “We brought you a Martyr today.” It’s incredible how good the feeling and joy of the prophets and Martyrs is.”

Palestinian Media Watch has exposed numerous statements by PA officials and parents that glorify Martyrdom for kids, as well as statements by would-be terrorists or suicide terrorists who envisioned themselves at wedding ceremonies in Paradise.
