"We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah."

These are the words of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The eerily phrased quote comes from an interview from 2015 in which Abbas uses his platform to invoke incitement within the Palestinian population to perform acts of terror against the Jewish people.

"With the help of Allah, every shaheed (martyr) will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward," Abbas said.

Palestinian incitement against Israel has increased over the past few months, according to a report released by the Ministry of Strategic and Public Affairs.

Against the backdrop of the terrorist attacks in the in the Barkan industrial zone and Gush Etzion, the Palestinian Authority, led by Mahmoud Abbas, is consistently voicing it's firm support for terrorist attacks while Hamas is calling for a renewal of suicide attacks in Judea and Samaria, the report said.

In the past, the Palestinian Authority has also been known for promoting antisemitic Nazi propaganda giving while their own twist on the advertisements to the public.

Many artists have portrayed antisemitic visuals including "martyrs" stabbing, ramming and assaulting those who look like stereotypically-Jewish-racial caricatures.

Schoolbooks within the Palestinian territories are also known for portraying Jewish culture in an extremely negative light.

The latest Palestinian Authority elementary school textbooks are even more radical than previous editions, according to a report issued by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education.

The report was based on examination of elementary-school grades one through four and high-school grades 11 and 12 of the 2016-2017 PA’s educational curriculum.

The new textbooks showed deterioration in messages of tolerance and peace compared to previous editions - as well as stories and anecdotes of previous martyr's and their experiences.

They teach pupils to become expendable martyrs and reject negotiations, while demonizing and denying the existence of the State of Israel, according to the findings.

Palestinian Television in its own from time to time will show harrowing animated videos of shaheeds running over Jewish people in a car, with the attempt to insert humor into the videos.

The Jerusalem Post received a compacted video showing the current mood throughout the Palestinian population.

"Everyone needs to attack the Jews," a Palestinian youth said while being interviewed on a schoolyard, "Until there will be not one Jew left in this land."

"We will fight to expel the Jews from here," another Palestinian youth said, "We will fight by stabbing, running over people, shooting and throwing stones."

"If we had one single penny left, we would spend it on the families of the martyrs and the prisoners, and only then on the rest of the people." Abbas said.

Too see more, refer to the attached video.
