Here is a new video from Islamic Jihad meant to introduce a new rocket, but it is really to celebrate the terror group's "accomplishments:"

Sprinkled throughout the video, and especially around the 2:00 mark, it proudly shows terror attacks - bus bombs, stabbings and car rammings of Jews, scenes of Jews injured in hospitals and Jewish funerals.

Islamic Jihad - funded by Iran - isn't saying that kiling Jewish civilians is a regretful but necessary component of the conflict. They are saying that attacking Jews is central to their mission and they are proud that they target identifiable Jews.

Yet this is not the worst part. Islamic Jihad is a terror group and you cannot expect any hint of morality from them.

The worst part is that this is part of the larger Palestinian culture. Islamic Jihad is hardly marginal - they are quite visible in Gaza and used to participate in student elections in the West Bank as well. Their media is popular. Their rallies attract tens of thousands.

Yet there is complete silence from the larger Palestinian community for Islamic Jihad's glorification of terror, their explicit antisemitism, their love of violence evident in this video.

Western liberals never tire of saying that most Palestinians are peaceful. Certainly the number that personally engage in terror is quite small. But the silence in the face of terrorists and terrorism being celebrated in their midst, in their media and websites, literally every day, cannot be interpreted as anything but the Palestinian public condoning and supporting the most disgusting and violent acts.

There are never any op-eds against Islamic Jihad-type terrorism or antisemitism. Not from Fatah, nor from the independent media.

Even the Western funders of the PA don't insist that part of their money go towards the active combatting of terror glorification. Instead they support nebulous and vague educational"peace" initiatives where platitudes are taught but nothing negative is said against terror and antisemitism. The reason is as depressing as it is obvious - the EU knows that Palestinian culture will not tolerate any dissent from the support of terror that is shown and taught to them from birth.

The PA and Fatah are only considered "moderate" because they aren't as explicit in their support of terror as Islamic Jihad and Hamas are. But they do absolutely nothing to stop the culture that celebrates murder of Jewish civilians, and in Arabic they often engage in the same type of incitement themselves.

There is something seriously wrong with the logic that people who condone or support terrorism against Jews have the right to their own state where such hate can be multiplied.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
