The event started with PA Minister of Culture Anwar Abu Aisha honoring a number of released terrorist murderers by inviting them on stage and awarding them PA plaques of honor. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA uses cultural events to honor terrorists.
Later in the program, a play was performed by Palestinian youth. The play opens with young actors who are divided into two rival camps of Hamas and Fatah supporters. Eventually they throw away their Fatah and Hamas flags, uniting under the PA flag. Then they shoot and kill all the "Israelis." Among the dead bodies of the Israelis, they find a Palestinian who had been spying for Israel.
The "spy" begs for his life. However, the Palestinian leader makes him kneel down and shoots him in the head.
In response to the staged murder, the audience erupts in applause and whistles. The united Fatah and Hamas group salute their leader - the murderer - who marches around with the Palestinian flag.

The plaques of honor given to the released terrorist murderers showed a map of "Palestine," denying the existence of Israel.
At a Fatah event in 2009, a skit also portrayed the rivalry between Fatah and Hamas. Students belonging to the two organizations argued over which organization was greater and which had done the most to fight Israel. Hamas students boasted the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, while Fatah students boasted the lynch in Ramallah in 2000 in which two Israeli soldiers were brutally murdered.
The following is the transcript of the play that was broadcast on PA TV Live:

Comment: We know Kerry, Obama, Rice, Jarrett all possess this same information. They choose to ignore it, dismiss it yet those of us who live here, yours truly only 8 miles from the boundary with them know better. Yes, we know better. We are the recipients of their cultural beliefs-we are bombed. shot at, cursed, maligned internationally and they act as spoiled children to the world. They receive more "adie" than any other group in the history of the planet-they chose to use infra-structure monies, eg.g, water development systems, roads, business moneies to put into their pockets or sponsor terrorism. These are facts on the ground as you refe in the USA. So, excuse me if I have had enough BS from the US government officials who are currently doiong their best to ram, yes ram a "deal" down our ....
