Fatah Central Committee member belittles Jewish ties to Israel, as expressed in Netanyahu’s UN speech 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 24, 2011
     "Member of the Fatah Central Committee, Tawfiq Tirawi, said that the speech by President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN was a historical [speech] par excellence, expressing the tragedy of the entire Palestinian people, from 1948 until today, and presented the Palestinians' demands with regard to independence, freedom, and the establishment of a state. He said, 'This was a historical speech at a historical time and at a historical place.' In response to Netanyahu's speech, he said: 'This was a pale speech that repeated itself and said nothing new; in it he expressed the occupation regime [and said] that it has historical rights to this land, as though the world doesn't know that the Prophet [Muhammad] ascended [to heaven] from the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Netanyahu spoke as though this was the land of his forefathers, forgetting that we have been here for tens of thousands of years.'"

     "Member of the Fatah Central Committee Tawfiq Tirawi noted that the USA is the primary enemy of the Palestinian people, and that Israel is a tool for achieving [America's] aims. He said: 'We ask ourselves how come that a great country which prides itself on liberty and democracy, and champions the liberty and independence of nations, is preventing the Palestinian nation from achieving its legitimate rights – liberty, independence, and an end to the occupation.'
This was said during a festive dinner and evening show, organized by the Prisoners' Club in cooperation with the Awjan company in Ramallah, in honor of the families of prisoners who have spent longer than twenty years in the prisons of the Israeli occupation. It was attended by Minister of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake, Chairman of the Prisoners' Club Qadura Fares, released prisoner Abu Sukkar, and several political and [other] honorary Palestinian figures… At the end of the evening, the organizers awarded plaques to the prisoners' families."

     “At the Shahid (Martyr) Salah Khalaf Center in the Tubas district, a conference of intellectuals was held to mark the anniversary of the Martyrdom of Abdallah Daoud, who was among those expelled from the [Bethlehem] Church of Nativity, under the title, ‘Stations of the Shahid’s Struggle’.

The above article mentions that the conference was held at the Shahid (Martyr) Salah Khalaf Center. Terrorist Salah Khalaf (Abu Iyad) was one of the founders of the Fatah organization. He was head of the Black September branch, whose terrorist attacks included the murder of 11 Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics in 1972. The Shahid Salah Khalaf Center was financed by USAID in 2004.

He described him as the first bullet, the start of the revolution, a legend, and a man impossible to describe in words.  Zaki summarized Abu Jihad’s life of struggle from his childhood until his momentous death as a Martyr… He said: ‘He was the [most] extraordinary revolutionary and military commander. He was the politician as well as the academic who founded a Palestinian periodical in 1958. He was tolerant towards his people, and tough and terrifying to his enemies. He was the one who predicted the Stone Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1988-1993), and he was the one who watered the [Palestinian] soil with his pure blood.’”

Fatah: Force, armed struggle must support negotiations 
Source: Al-Falastinia TV (Fatah Party), July 26, 2009
Tawfiq Tirawi, elected to the Fatah Central Committee at the General Fatah Conference Aug. 4-6, 2009:
     "Most members of the movement believe that it is imperative to emphasize, in the political platform of the Fatah movement, that we are still under occupation and that the legitimate resistance, in all its forms, must be re-considered… This doesn't mean that we don't want negotiations, but we don't want negotiations just for the sake of negotiations. There must be factors supporting the negotiations. The negotiations are [a type of] resistance, but they must be supported – supported by the stone, by demonstrations, by strikes, sit-ins, supported by all forms of the struggle, of which the greatest, or the most violent and the final [form] is the armed struggle. . . . The negotiations always need force to influence them positively."

Tawfiq Tirawi, Chairman of the Advisory Council of the Academy and former Head of the General Intelligence in the West Bank, addressing students at graduation ceremony, Palestinian Academy for Security Sciences in Jericho:
   "Jerusalem needs thousands of Shahids (Martyrs), and so long as we are alive and you [addressing students] are among the commanders of the future, remember this: It is impossible for Jerusalem to return [to us] without thousands of Shahids. And if there is someone who thinks that America will restore Jerusalem to us, he is mistaken. [America] will not give us Jerusalem. If it won't give us Jerusalem, then how is it possible that it will give us the right of return? You have chosen these two symbols [Jerusalem and the right of return] as the name of your course [of study]. These two symbols need blood, action, effort, resistance, and Palestinian unity."

Note: 2 weeks later at the General Fatah Conference Aug. 4-6, 2009, Tirawi was elected to the Fatah Central Committee.
