Fatah official: US, Israel and the Muslim Brotherhood (including Hamas) conspire against the Palestinian cause
Source: Official PA TV Live, Dec. 19, 2013
Official PA TV Live broadcast the main event marking World Teachers’ Day in Bethlehem. Several PA officials attended the event (according to Facebook page of the Head of Education in Bethlehem): PA Minister of Education Ali Zaidan (Abu Zuhri), Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi, Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and Member of Fatah Central Committee Sultan Abu Al-Einein, District Governor of Bethlehem Abd Al-Fattah Hamayel and director of the Bethlehem Education Administration Nisreen Yasser Amr.
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi delivered the Fatah Central Committee speech: “We say to those who hijacked these revolutions (i.e., the Arab Spring), to the Muslim Brotherhood movement, of which the Hamas movement is a part, being its branch in Palestine: No party or group will succeed if it doesn’t keep the Palestinian cause as the highest priority in its mind. We say to Egypt – Egypt of Arabness, Egypt of Arab nationalism, Egypt of Abd Al Nasser, Egypt of the Egyptian army that crossed the Suez Canal (Beginning the Yom Kippur War against Israel in 1973, Egypt crossed its ceasefire line with Israel, crossing the Suez Canal to enter Sinai, - Ed.): ‘Yes, we are with you and against any who murder and use terrorism against the Egyptian army. The American conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab homeland – its basic purpose is to take the issue of Palestine 50 years backwards. Who in Syria is talking about Palestine now? Who in Tunisia is talking about Palestine? In Yemen? In Egypt? Where are the Palestinian and his cause in these countries? This is the American-Israeli conspiracy. A just revolution began, and the Americans conspired against it with the Muslim Brotherhood’s assistance. This is the biggest conspiracy against the Palestinian cause.’”

Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi: "I say, from a position of responsibility, not a centimeter of Jerusalem will be liberated unless every grain of Palestinian soil is soaked in the blood of its brave people. For Jerusalem doesn't need negotiations, because negotiations will not bring Jerusalem back to us. What will bring back Jerusalem are the struggle and the resolve... We have conducted negotiations, while not laying down the rifle. It [the rifle] may be resting but we will not neglect our principles. We will rest the fighter's rest, but each period has its method of struggle. From fighting to Intifada, to popular resistance, to negotiations - but we will not abandon [our principles] - not in negotiations and not in any other way. I say, from a position of responsibility, the negotiations resulted in nothing except for the [release of the] prisoners."

Senior PA official celebrates “magnificent” terrorist “heroes returning from captivity”
Source: Official PA TV Live, Nov. 3, 2013
PA TV broadcast a rally in Surif, Hebron in honor of released prisoners Ziyad Ghneimat, Mustafa Ghneimat, and Najeh Muqbil.
Abbas Zaki: "How great and magnificent what you have done, oh heroes returning from captivity. How great are these men of great stature, for you sieged the prison guard. How great are you, for you knew that you are potential Martyrs (Shahids), yet your will was stronger than any [Israeli] decision and any outcome... We are the ones who planted the spirit of defiance in this nation, and we have been the school [to teach] the culture of resistance... We took up arms, and with cascades of blood we inscribed [in the books of history] victory after victory. And today, through diplomacy, by winning the world over on our side, and by removing Israel from public opinion (i.e., as a legitimate state), we will administer the poison to them drop by drop… I congratulate the Hebron District on [the return] of this group of select men. And when I mention Mustafa, Ziyad, and Najeh, I add also the great eagle Fakhri Barghouti –33 years in prison, and here he is with us! …
I would like now to recall the commander of the operation, [Muhammad] Abu Shadi Al-Tous, whom we look up to with respect. The reason they are postponing [the release of] this commander is that he angered them more by having been the commander of the operation. We also salute [his wife] Um Shadi, and every front, and [we salute] all those beloved heroes, the pioneers, the free men, the fighters, like these heroes (points to the three released prisoners)… We say to Israel: Die in your rage. Go to your cemeteries and recite over your dead whatever you recite. Here they are [who Israel said] 'have blood on their hands' (i.e., murderers); here they are [back] among their own people: fighters, knights, free men!”

Fatah official: Use violence at the right time
Source: Facebook page of Tawfiq Tirawi, member of Fatah Central Committee, Oct. 13, 2013
Fatah Central Committee Member Tawfiq Tirawi:
     “When there are negotiations, the negotiations need leverage. Leverage on the ground for negotiations [can be] armed resistance, popular resistance, civil disobedience against the occupation, appeals to the UN, etc. You have to use all forms of struggle [as leverage]. True, there are circumstances that can sometimes dictate the form of struggle. At one time or another, the time may be right or wrong for it (i.e., for a certain form of struggle). But ultimately, if the Palestinian negotiator goes [to negotiate] without an activity that supports him, and with no factors that support him, his position will be weak. We have no popular resistance, to speak frankly, and we have no armed resistance. We have what we obtained by appealing to the UN, which is [the ability] to approach international institutions and organizations…
There is no Israeli partner for peace, in my opinion. We made a mistake when we recognized Israel, and we must retract our recognition of Israel. We made a mistake when we lowered our demands and [agreed to] the 1967 borders. I say, we must return to no less than the [UN] Partition Plan. This is my opinion, and this is what we must tell people – because essentially the two-state solution is over and dead.”

In addition, he spoke of the movement’s role in educating its activists towards sacrifice, giving and devotion, saying: ‘We must fulfill the role of the self-sacrificing fighter because the self-sacrificing fighter is not only the one who carries a rifle but also the one who makes decisions, serves the nation and protects the land, honor and holy places.’
In response to statements made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who announced that there would be no return of Palestinian refugees and no Palestinian state, and who still continues to run wild [building] settlements, Tirawi -- speaking for the Fatah movement that has never forsaken the rifle, the stone and the struggle -- said that Kiryat Arba and [Gush] Etzion are not Israeli and that Nazareth, Jaffa and Haifa will remain Palestinian.

Fatah official: “We will pass [this conflict] on to our children and our children’s children”
Source: Al-Manar TV (Hezbollah), Sept. 14, 2013
Member of Fatah Central Committee Tawfiq Tirawi was interviewed by Al-Manar TV (Hezbollah).
Tawfiq Tirawi: “Our conflict with this occupation is a conflict that has continued since 1917, since the Balfour promise (i.e., Balfour Declaration). I’m telling you, and trust me, it’s been passed from generation to generation. We are a generation that received it [the conflict] from the Martyrs (Shahids), from Yasser Arafat, from Abu Iyad, from Abu Jihad, from Abu Sabri and others, the Martyrs. We will pass it on to our children and our children’s children, until Palestine is liberated. Dear brother, what is important is for there to be a conscious Palestinian will, able to struggle for another 100 years in order to free this land. There will be no circumstances in which will we allow Palestine to remain occupied. This is our land and our country.”

Note: The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

Fatah official: "I salute the Islamic Jihad"

Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV host: "Tawfiq Al-Tirawi, the truth is, we're talking today about the July Victory (i.e., the Second Lebanon War). You said that you're opposed to the current negotiations. What other option do the Palestinian people or Palestinian leaders have apart from negotiating? Do they have other options?"...
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Al-Tirawi: "There are many options we could turn to, beginning with resistance by political confrontation, [resistance] by stones, and ending with armed struggle and everything in between. I wish to say that given the current balance of power and the current factors, the principle of armed struggle should not be abandoned, nor should the principle of resistance [be abandoned]. I would also like to say to all who say that the Fatah Movement has cast away the rifle: This is not true.
In the political guidelines [determined] in the sixth Fatah Conference [August 2009] held in Bethlehem, the Fatah Movement approved all the resistance options, including the armed struggle. Nonetheless, sometimes there are circumstances, factors and situations when the time is perhaps not right for this type of struggle. Maybe in other months a different type of struggle will be suitable. The important thing is for the struggle to remain, and for us to be engaged in constant activity against this occupation, until it ends...  I salute the Islamic Jihad, because the Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aqsa [Martyrs'] Brigades and all the Palestinian resistance brigades, their role was more central than the Hamas Movement's role... We will win, Allah willing, with different forms of resistance - popular resistance, resisting the occupation through political confrontation, resisting it on the international level, as well as armed resistance at any time."
