Fatah official: "We do not renounce any option, and we believe that resistance in all its forms is a legitimate right"
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Nov. 2, 2016
 






Official PA TV program Going to the Conference, hosting Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul, on the planned Seventh Fatah Conference

Official PA TV host: “A question for Mr. Abu Jihad Al-Aloul: You spoke about the means [being utilized by the Palestinians], and therefore I ask: At the [Seventh] Fatah Conference will we see a strategic change regarding the means of struggle against the oppressive occupation of the Palestinian lands? Will we soon see a change in the Palestinian national strategy on everything regarding the means of struggle against the occupation?”

Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul: “Perhaps there are people who think that in the [recent] past the Oslo Accords took place and new and defined strategies were created that were connected to a realistic view of the situation. [However, this occurred] out of consideration for the balance of powers, and not as a strategic change. Some of the people thought that the essence of Fatah had changed, and that its strategy had changed…
Therefore, in the Sixth Fatah Conference - and we will again emphasize this in the political plan of the seventh conference – we passed a resolution that defines the identity [of Fatah], we called it a political declaration, and this declaration opens the political plan: … ‘Despite our adherence to the option of a just peace and our efforts to realize it, we declare that we do not renounce any option, and we believe that resistance in all its forms (i.e., including violence) is a legitimate right of the occupied peoples in their confrontation against the occupiers.’”

The terms "all means," "peaceful uprising,” “popular uprising," and “all forms of resistance” are ‎often used by PA leaders to refer to events that include violence and deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as rock-throwing, stabbings and even shootings. See ‎Mahmoud Abbas' reference to murderous terror as "peaceful" during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), which included numerous stabbings, shootings and car ramming attacks in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded.
