Violence and terror
Promoting violence & terror
Violence for adults
The Palestinian Authority justifies all terror as legitimate armed conflict, coining it “resistance,” the Palestinian euphemism for violence ranging from the terror to suicide bombings to stone throwing:
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and former PA senior official, Jibril Rajoub:
"Building a school and throwing a hand grenade, in my opinion, are resistance. I build the school in order to strengthen the reasons for my people's resolve, as one of several aspects of the resistance, and when there is a need to throw a grenade [or launch] a rocket, I'll do that as well out of my belief in the inevitable victory of my cause and its justness."

The PA at times adds that violence must be used wisely as an effective political tool. Depending on the political circumstances the Palestinian Authority alternates active calls for violence and terror with periods when they say that terror is being postponed because of temporary conditions:
Dr. Nabil Shaath, Fatah Foreign Affairs Commissioner:
"The popular struggle is a fundamental principle whose importance equals that of the armed struggle, since it is the responsibility and task of all the people. The current distancing from the armed struggle does not mean its absolute rejection." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 21, 2010]
Fatah leader Diab Al-Louh once worded it this way on PA TV: “The rifle seeds and diplomacy reaps.”

Headline: "Rajoub: The time has come to build a true national partnership – [the unity government] will include the concept of the political solution, the resistance, and the state plan, and the rule of one law and one weapon"
     "Fatah Central Committee Secretary champion Jibril Rajoub said that 'The hour is ripe for building a political partnership that will include the concepts of a political solution, the general agreement about the resistance, a state plan, [and] the rule of one weapon (i.e., one military body) and one law.'
In an interview with [Lebanese TV] channel Al-Mayadeen he said: 'Resistance in the eyes of the Fatah and Hamas Movements is a means to ending the occupation and establishing a Palestinian state.' He emphasized that Fatah did not and will not relinquish the resistance and that today there are international plots against Palestine. Rajoub continued: 'Everyone agrees that the Palestinian state will be under one weapon, one police, and one regime. We need national unity that will focus on agreement and partnership.' He said: 'We want to create pressure on the occupation in order to achieve our rights.'"

Fatah accuses Israel of trying to "desecrate" holy sites, and blames Israel for subsequent violence  
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Aug. 1, 2017
Headline: "Fatah: The invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque constitute a continuation of the racist Zionist extremism"
     "The Palestinian National Liberation Movement Fatah said today [Aug. 1, 2017] in a statement from the information department of the [Fatah] Commission of Mobilization and Organization that the settlers’ incessant invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas, under protection of the occupation police, constitute a continuation of the Zionist extremism and a hostile and explicit call to desecrate the sanctity of the sites that are holy to Islam and Christianity in occupied Jerusalem… The Fatah Movement held the Israeli government – as the occupying force – fully responsible for the consequences of this criminal policy and the popular and legitimate rage of the Palestinian masses that it will awaken."

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

      "The Fatah Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a statement in which it saluted 'the resolve and Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) of the members of our people, its women, young, elderly, national forces, and religious institutions in Jerusalem, which are currently proudly defending the Arabness of Jerusalem, the Islamicness of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the honor of the Arab nation and the Islamic nation.' The Shabiba movement also appreciated the position of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership, their latest decisions regarding Jerusalem, including stopping all types of contact with the occupation, and their call to the members of our people to carry out Ribat in order to defend the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. It also admired the position of the Palestinian leadership to aid the resolve of the Palestinian citizens in Jerusalem. Fatah's Shabiba demanded that its sons, activists, and supporters, and all of the young Palestinians widely participate in a Friday of Ribat, to widen the circle of the confrontation with the occupation forces and the herds of settlers, to open all the fronts in the villages, cities, and refugee camps, and to widen the area of confrontation so that it will include all of the settlements and roads that serve them, in order to convey the message of the young Palestinians that Jerusalem is a Palestinian taboo, and that harming it means opening the gates of hell before the occupiers."

Fatah proud of rioters in Jerusalem, vows to continue “popular resistance” 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), July 24, 2017
Headline: “Fatah: Jerusalem is our capital, the Al-Aqsa Mosque is our direction of prayer, and the [Fatah] Movement is leading those defending them”

“[Fatah] Movement Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi said in a press statement that we in Fatah are proud of our residents and our people who are carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in Jerusalem in particular, and also of our mighty Palestinian people everywhere it is located, which in these moments is embodying the most spectacular definition of cohesion, unity, and mutual responsibility, and is defending the sites that are holy to Islam and Christianity and the entire holy city [of Jerusalem]. Fatah will continue to be on the ground and leading those defending our capital and our Al-Aqsa Mosque as part of the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) that it has adopted and leads.”

The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded by stabbings, shootings and car ramming attacks: Abbas said: "we want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is." http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437

In a statement it published after its meeting yesterday [July 23, 2017] in Ramallah, the Revolutionary Council… called on the Hamas Movement to take advantage of this national moment and the unity of the masses in defending the land and the holy sites in order to respond to the initiative of His Honor the President and return our national unity. [The Revolutionary Council] also emphasized 'its choice – the use of popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) and its escalation on the ground, and the continuation of the political and media confrontation with the occupying force until our national goals are achieved.’"

The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders either to refer to peaceful protest or deadly terror attacks and terror waves.

Excerpt of an editorial by the official PA daily

     “After an expanded meeting of the Palestinian leadership, which was held two days ago [July 21, 2017] and was dedicated to a discussion on the ways of dealing with the occupation’s brutal attack against Jerusalem and the plans to Judaize the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas gave a speech directed to the Palestinian people. In his speech, he called on all the national activity factions – and particularly on Hamas – to rise above our disagreements, give preference to the national matter over matters connected to the factions, and act for the unity of our people… President Mahmoud Abbas’ call is the call of Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This is a crucial historical moment: Either there will be national unity to support Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, or there will be a more brutal occupation and more dangerous plans. But Palestine will not agree to anything other than unity. It will not agree to a continuation of the occupation, and will not agree that its holy sites be harmed or undergo Judaization.”
