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.”
Hamas, in response to Palestinian criticism, publishes anti-PA cartoon that depicts the "West Bank" stabbing and killing a Jew  
Source: Facebook page of cartoonist Bahaa' Yassin, Aug. 1, 2015

On Jul. 31, 2015, Hamas tweeted a cartoon that was critical of Fatah and the PA, depicting a Jew raping a  woman, representing the West Bank, and murdering children while a PA soldier stands by idly. The cartoon outraged the PA and generated anger in the Palestinian street. Hamas was forced to remove the cartoon from its twitter account and apologize, while the cartoonist, Baha Yassin removed the cartoon from his Facebook page and replaced it with a modified version that is actually a continuation of the first one, differentiating between the population of the West Bank and the Palestinian Authority.

In this cartoon, a woman with the words "West Bank" written in green, the color of Hamas, stabs the Jew in the back in the center of the "Star of David" and kills him. The new "West Bank" woman holds the knife dripping with the Jew's blood, then rebukes the first yellow (Fatah) woman, who is now renamed "[Palestinian] Authority".
Woman 2 to woman 1: "I will attain what my children deserve and what you deserve, [Palestinian] Authority of shame."
The cartoonist added this text beside the visual: "This is the West Bank that I know."
Text on the policeman's post now reads: "Security Cooperation Position" [A reference to the security cooperation between the Israeli army and the PA.]

A day after Fatah calls on Palestinians to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent Jews visiting the site, riots break out 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 25, 2015
In anticipation of Jews visiting the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av (Jewish day of mourning commemorating the Temple’s destruction), Fatah called on Palestinians to go to Al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent them from visiting the site. On the day of Tisha B’Av, Palestinian youth who had collected stones, planks, and Molotov cocktails clashed with Israel police forces.
The following is the call by Fatah official Adnan Gheith to go to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent Jewish visits to the site:


Headline: “A vigil at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] to condemn the offense to the Messenger [Muhammad]”
     “Fatah’s Jerusalem Branch Secretary Adnan Gheith called to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to thwart the calls of the settlers and the alleged Temple organizations to invade it this Sunday (i.e., Tisha B’Av), close it to Muslims, and allow them [the settlers] to hold Talmudic ceremonies (i.e., Jewish prayers) in its courtyards, in order to commemorate the anniversary of the alleged ‘Temple destruction’ (i.e., Tisha B’Av).”

Notes:
"Alleged Temple organizations" refer to religious Jewish movements including the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, The Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount and Students for the Temple Mount, which spread awareness of the importance of the Temple Mount in Judaism and encourage people to visit the site.

The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.

Tisha B’Av is a Jewish day of mourning, commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem (586 BCE and 70 CE) and the forced exile of all Jews from the land of Israel.
PLO: Stone throwing is “legitimate resistance” and “self-defence”

Headline: “The [Palestinian] National Council condemned the [Israeli] law increasing the punishment against stone-throwers”
     “The Palestinian National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) stated that the fact the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) approved a law that increases the sentences against those who resist the occupation forces and confront them with stones, especially in occupied Jerusalem, is an escalation of aggression, extremism, arrogance, crimes, and other punishments imposed on our people because of their legitimate resistance to the occupation and their self-defense against the occupier.”

Note: Israeli Justice Minister (from May 2015) Ayelet Shaked is promoting legislation aimed at increasing the punishment to stone-throwers, in order to provide legal tools to handle situations the current legislation does not cover.
Secretary-General of the PA’s Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem calls on Palestinians to carry out Ribat "in order to thwart the settlers’ plots to invade" the Al-Aqsa Mosque

Headline: “Hanna Issa calls for Ribat at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] on the ‘anniversary of the destruction of the Temple’”
     “Secretary-General of the [Palestinian Authority’s] Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places, Dr. Hanna Issa, stated that Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and presence in it, are not limited to the month of Ramadan alone, and called on Palestinians to carry out Ribat in the coming days in order to thwart the settlers’ plots to invade [the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound]… Issa noted the words of the extremist Yehuda Glick regarding his plans and efforts regarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque: ‘The Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) is a place of worship for all the religions, where all pray to God. Because the Dome of the Rock cannot hold all of them, we need a larger building,' [and Issa said] this is a clear, allusion to the plans striving to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the alleged Temple on its ruins.”

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.

PLO official supports Iran deal because Iran will help Palestinians fight Israel, “the main enemy of the region” 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, July 15, 2015
     “Bassam Abu Sharif [member of the Palestinian National Council, the legislative body of the PLO] stated that the agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 [world] powers (China, France, Russia, the US, UK and Germany –Ed.), is a victory for Iran and for the goal to clear the Middle East of weapons of mass destruction.
Abu Sharif stated that… the Palestinian people considers this Iranian victory a first step towards the cancelation of the rules of the international game in the Middle East as they were prescribed by the West. This agreement is a first step towards the beginning of a serious struggle to remove the Israeli nuclear weapon from the region, and the increase of support for acts of resistance to the Israeli expansion and aggression… Bassam Abu Sharif stated that Israel is the main enemy of the region, because it creates a situation of aggression, racism, occupation, and expansion. We expect serious efforts to unite the ranks of resistance, and Iran’s support of it, in order to eliminate the aggression, the means of aggression, and terror organizations associated with it. Our Palestinian people considers the Iranian revolution a strategic source of support for the causes of freedom and liberation in our Arab world, and see in the Iranian revolution a power factor in dealing with the Zionist, imperialist, and reactionary plot in the region.”

Headline
: “PA Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein calls to increase visits to Al-Aqsa”
     “PA Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein called to increase visits to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in order to thwart the escalating Israeli calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque [compound ] and hold Talmudic ceremonies (i.e., Jewish prayers) in its pure courtyards. This was after the extremist Temple organizations called on their supporters to organize a Jewish demonstration in front of the Golden Gate (in Jerusalem’s old city walls –Ed.) this Tuesday [July 14, 2015], the 27th of Ramadan, in order to demand that the Al-Aqsa Mosque [compound] be closed to all Muslims during the anniversary of the so-called ‘destruction of the Temple.’ (i.e.,Tisha B’Av – see note). The Mufti considered this call a dangerous escalation, and explained that the continuing attack against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, its desecration, and the encouragement of the extremists to visit it, indicate an impending religious war. In addition, he stated that the calls and the aggressive plans inciting to desecrate the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its courtyards and to harm it have increased during the month of Ramadan. The Mufti called on worshippers from Jerusalem and the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) and anyone who is able to reach the Al-Aqsa Mosque from across the homeland, to make every effort to visit it and strengthen their presence in it, in order to protect it from the ongoing and increasing attacks against it."

PA daily op-ed claims that kidnappings are part of legitimate “resistance to the occupation and self-defense”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 9, 2015
Headline: “The Israeli Parliament [Knesset] legitimizes racism.”
Op-ed by Izzat Daraghmeh, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.
        “The fact that the Israeli [Parliament] Knesset yesterday [July 8, 2015], Wednesday, approved, at first reading, the bill sentencing anyone who kidnaps an Israeli ‘for nationalistic reasons,’ to life [imprisonment], without this bill applying to Israelis who kidnap Palestinians, shows the extent of racism of the occupation authority and government. This is especially [true] as most of the Israeli laws were enacted to serve the goals of the occupation, and to facilitate it’s expansion and continuity, and most of them are aimed against the Palestinian people if it opposes the occupation, its actions and offensives, even though resistance to the occupation and self-defense are matters which are anchored in all international and humanitarian laws and ordinances.
Abbas advisor: "Open all the gates" in conflict against Israel to honor every Martyr "who spilled his pure blood" 
Source: Facebook page of Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and member of Fatah Central Committee Sultan Abu Al-Einein, July 7, 2015
Posted to Facebook page of Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and member of Fatah Central Committee Sultan Abu Al-Einein on July 7, 2015, a few days after the death of Muhammad Al-Kusbeh, who participated in throwing stones at an Israeli army force near the Qalandiya refugee camp on July 3, 2015. Al-Kusbeh was killed by gunfire from Israeli soldiers whose vehicle came under attack. Palestinian reports claimed Al-Kusbeh was shot while trying to climb over the separation fence.
     “The thing that causes a feeling of unease in the soul is the Palestinian response to these crimes and acts: The news of the death of a Palestinian as a Martyr (Shahid) no longer motivates the people and doesn’t receive a response appropriate the standing of the Martyr who spilled his pure blood for his homeland and his land… The Martyrs, the injured, and the prisoners are not a topic for debate, but rather cause unity, unity that will increase our motivation to keep the flame of resistance at its peak, as Israel has destroyed all chance of achieving a complete and just peace that would give our people their minimum rights... In the next conflict, we need to open all the gates so the Martyrs will be at peace in their last resting place, so the bereaved mothers will be satisfied, so the wounds of our injured will heal, and so that the prisoners will hold their heads high to Heaven. This nation will not remain silent for long about this piracy and these crimes, while drawing its high motivation from the saying ‘The darkest hours are those before dawn,’ and the dawn of our people will come. It will come when its country is formed, when the land of its homeland is completely liberated, when its hostages return, when the hated occupation is defeated, and its settlers expelled, and Palestine is purified from them and their filth.”

"There will be a qualitative change for the unit [named after] Martyrdom-seeker Nabil Mas’oud in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, by using attack tunnels against the Zionist entity. We will now go through one of those tunnels to see what the Martyrs’ Brigades is preparing for this occupation (i.e., Israel)..."

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades fighter:
"This tunnel is approximately 3.5 km long and crosses the border between the Gaza Strip and the Zionist enemy. There are tunnels inside [Gaza] through which Jihad fighters pass during war... We spend all our time trying to get money to fulfill our duty concerning our occupied lands and liberate them from the Zionist entity. This is why we are asking [for money]... especially [from] Iran, which is a known long-time supporter of the resistance and the Palestinian cause..."

PLO: Proposed Israeli law increasing jail sentences for stone throwers that target moving cars is “racist”

Headline: “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs condemned the punishing of prisoners and stone throwers”
      “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs condemned today [June 1, 2015], Monday morning, the fact that the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation of the extremist Israeli government supported two bills directed against the Palestinian nation and its prisoners. The first decision (i.e., proposal) is to impose excessive punishments on stone throwers, and the second is a ban on prisoners calling their families. The Commission stated: ‘The forcing of racist laws such as these upon the Palestinian nation and its prisoners expresses the direction of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s new extremist right-winged government. Israel’s government confirms day after day that it is a body that does not respect [the fact] that the Palestinian individual is human, and that it thinks itself to be above all the norms, laws, and principles of human rights. It should be noted that the current Israeli law imposes imprisonment of up to 20 years on whoever throws stones at someone on a road or in his car, but the prosecution must prove that the thrower had the intention to harm the driver, or cause damage to the car and threaten their security. The bill grants the court the authority to impose imprisonment of 10 years on whoever throws stones, explosives, or objects at a moving car. The law only requires of the prosecution that it prove that the thrower had criminal intent, and that he knew that what he was doing could endanger the driver or the vehicle, without a need to prove that he intended to cause them damage.”

Note: Israeli Justice Minister (from May 2015) Ayelet Shaked is promoting legislation aimed at increasing the punishment to stone-throwers, in order to provide legal tools to handle situations the current legislation does not cover.<

Our right will not be lost as long as there is a nation behind it who believes in it and adheres to it
and our rifle is stronger and more insistent than you imagine.

We are never afraid, O usurper
We are the members of the Nidal [Al-Amoudi] unit
Our determination will defeat your hate
in any battle or clash
We are the members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades
We will live as men, we will die as men
We have prepared for you those [men] whose only desire is your destruction
We have prepared the best soldiers
In the brave Nidal unit, soldiers and defenders of the land
We have brought the 103 [rocket] squad
when facing them, it is useless to call for help

Where is the sword of Saladin, to destroy them
And purify the land from the impurities of the infidels.”

     “PA Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian [Territories] and preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Muhammad Hussein condemned the call of Jewish parties, organizations and various public figures to carry out repeated invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque this coming Wednesday and Thursday [April 22-23, 2015], to hold Talmudic prayers (i.e., Jewish prayers) in it and to raise the Israeli flag… Hussein urged every [Palestinian] from Jerusalem and its surroundings and from among the 1948 Palestinians (i.e., Israeli Arabs) who can reach the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to visit it, to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in it and to pray in it in order to stop those who want to invade and desecrate it.”

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.

PLO official: Palestinian "resistance" and "struggle" are recognized by the UN  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 5, 2015
Headline: “We oppose the criminalization of the Palestinian struggle”
      “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs said that the decision of the so-called ‘Head of Central Command’ to apply the principles of the Israeli penal law (amendment 39) to the Palestinians facing trial in the occupied territories, will have dangerous political and legal consequences for the Palestinian national struggle and the prisoners’ issue. The Commission stated in a released report, that the Israeli government strives through its system of military laws… to criminalize the struggle of the Palestinians, to deny the legitimacy of [their] resistance to the occupation, which is recognized by all international laws and in UN resolutions, and to deny them [the Palestinians] their definition as ‘prisoners of war’ and ‘prisoners of freedom.’"

Note: PA leaders and officials have legitimized Palestinian violence by quoting UN resolution 3236 which "recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to regain its rights by all means." The PA interprets "all means" as including violence against civilians, but has chosen to ignore the continuation of the resolution which states that the use of "all means" should be "in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations..." The UN Charter prohibits targeting civilians, even in war. Chapter 1, Article 1, opens by saying that "international disputes" should be resolved "by peaceful means."
Terrorist responsible for killing 37 glorified on Palestinian TV as “hero and commander” 
Source: Fatah-run Awdah TV, Apr. 5, 2015
Fatah-run Awdah TV program The Story of a Photograph hosted Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muwaffaq Matar.
Awdah TV host: “Of course, we put the spotlight on new photographs as well as old ones, new photographs at the [right] time and old photographs in the right place and at the right time. For example, no one would have believed that this baby, this toddler in her mother’s arms, is the one that would become the hero and commander Dalal Mughrabi.
During the Kamal Adwan operation (i.e., bus hijacking and killing of 37) in the 1970’s, she declared [the birth of] the Republic of Palestine, on the occupied seashore of Palestine. She commanded an operation with 12 self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen). It was a heroic operation, studied in the military academies until this day. Who would have imagined that the man in this photograph, the father of this toddler, would be the father of the hero and commander, Martyr Dalal Mughrabi?”

Notes: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Abbas’ advisor: "Peace is inconceivable" and "we must prepare ourselves for opening the options of resistance"

   The following text was posted by PA Chairman Abbas’ advisor and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein on his official Facebook page. Al-Einein’s comments followed a statement made by Israeli MP Avigdor Liberman at an elections conference in March 2015 during the Israeli election campaign, about Israeli Arab MPs who are disloyal to the State of Israel. Liberman said: "Those who are against us, there's nothing to be done – we need to pick up an ax and cut off his head," Liberman said. "Otherwise we won't survive here." [Ha’aretz, March 9, 2015]. Al-Einein’s comments were reprinted in the official PA daily, but with slight changes that seem to make the content less severe. The differences are indicated below.

"... A call of the kind voiced by Liberman requires us to modify our statements… and to spread the culture of resistance in all its shapes, forms and manifestations... in order to save for something stronger than Liberman’s axes, [and use it] to kill his ilk, who are all [like] Liberman. (In the official PA daily the word “kill” had been changed to “tackle” –Ed.) For these calls pave the way to a dark phase [in our struggle] against this enemy – a phase in which there is no place for words, but [only] for actions after actions after actions. I say to all our Palestinian people that peace is inconceivable, and that it is now impossible to go back to any [form of] negotiations with such people. We must prepare ourselves for opening the options of resistance... The soil of the country that ejects the Israeli enemy from its midst; a land that will refuse to hold them in its bosom as dead [bodies], and they must understand that there is no place for them on our land alive..."

      “Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa said yesterday [March 2, 2015] that the occupation government and its executive arms are now declaring the conflict to be religious and racial alone, not political as they used to claim.  This declaration was delivered after the occupation’s Magistrate Court announced that the extremist [Rabbi] Yehuda Glick is permitted to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque, despite the police ban, and also ruled to pay him half a million shekels [in compensation], because as far as the court is concerned, ‘the ban on entering the Mosque is illegal’…  Issa noted that the return of the extremist Glick to the Al-Aqsa Mosque at this tense time constitutes a blatant affront to the Palestinians’ feelings… At the end of his statement, Secretary-General Hanna Issa stressed that the silence of the Arab and Islamic [world] on [the issue of] Jerusalem, its residents and the racist and political war of abuse [being waged] against them daily, in addition to the fact that they [the Arabs and Muslims] are not taking a clear and serious stand, will necessarily lead to daily, direct confrontations with the executive branches of the occupation government all around the city.
Fatah’s official spokesman in Jerusalem, Raafat Alayan, said that… the invasions of Glick and his group of extremists would not be met with roses, and that the path to Al-Aqsa would not be paved for them… It should be noted that the extremist Glick survived an attempted assassination for his provocative actions, which include his invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

     “Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs Director [and PA Parliament Member] Issa Karake said today, Tuesday [March 3, 2015] that the Commission and all the institutions working [to aid] the detainees have decided not to cooperate with the compensation policy the Israeli military courts have begun implementing against the prisoners…
Karake called this policy ‘dangerous,’ stating that its purpose was to define the legitimate Palestinian national struggle against the occupation as a crime, to extort money and harm the legitimacy of the Palestinian people’s right to defend itself from the mounting Israeli aggression against our Palestinian nation. He [Karake] said: ‘The occupation’s courts and the Israeli legal system are instruments for the deepening of the occupation and its preservation, under the cover of a so-called “law.” The victim must not pay the price for protecting our legal rights, and it is the occupation that must pay for the continuation of its occupation and aggression.’”

Fares said that any legal cooperation with any ruling involving payment of compensation would be considered a violation of the national resolution, as it would be acknowledgement of the prisoner’s struggle against the occupation as an erroneous act that requires an apology and compensation [to Israel]. The [Palestinian] Prisoners’ Club said that Fares’ warning came ‘after several attorneys were proved to have been involved in dubious deals without having bothered to protect the national stance, which is opposed to paying compensation to the occupation.’ It should be noted that the club has succeeded, through legal efforts, in obtaining a ruling from the Israeli court to the effect that no imprisonment penalty will be imposed on those who fail to pay the compensation.”

Moaz Al-Kasasbeh was a Jordanian fighter pilot whose plane crashed in northern Syria during a military operation targeting Islamic State. Kasasbeh was captured by IS militants and brutally executed on Jan. 3, 2015. Islamic State released footage of the execution on Feb. 3, 2015, showing Kasasbeh being burned alive in a cage.

Headline
: “‘IS are Muslims, one way or another’ - Hamas officials: Jordan bears responsibility for the murder of [Jordanian pilot Moaz] Al-Kasasbeh, and his burning is a distortion of Islam.”
     "In a post on his Facebook page, senior Hamas official and Hamas Legislative Council member Yahya Musa said… ‘Savagery, backwardness, cruelty, barbarity. But I hold the [Jordanian] political leadership that sent Moaz Al-Kasasbeh, the Obama administration and the corrupt Arab regime responsible.’ On the same issue, Hamas Legislative Council member Sheikh Salem Salameh said that the Jordanian government is responsible for the death of its pilot, Moaz Al-Kasasbeh. He said that his burning by IS harms Islam’s image and abuses Islam, as the group could have killed the pilot in a different way, exchanged him for prisoners or pardoned him.
In a statement to the Raya Ramallah radio station, Salameh added: ‘The Jordanian government was the one who decided to send its army to Syria to aid the government [in its war] against the rebels – a war it did not have to interfere in. It should have taken the same position as Turkey.’
He said: ‘IS are considered Muslims, one way or another, and we must not stand beside the enemies of Allah against the people of Allah.’”

     "Hezbollah’s operation (i.e., shooting of missiles) at Sheba Farms [in Northern Israel] ‎has shortened the distance between [its] promise to respond in the right place and time ‎and the actual response. The most important aspect of this resistance operation was ‎the fact that it put the quarrelsome ones (i.e., Israel) into a state of unrest‎...
The Palestinians followed the developments of yesterday's event together, full of ‎hope that the resistance fighters (i.e. Hezbollah) would capture Israeli soldiers and ‎would hold them in order to exchange them [for Palestinian prisoners], thereby ‎breaking Israel’s inflexibility regarding the prisoners’ issue and forcing it to free ‎them all...
We do not deny our joy at the fact that this quarrelsome occupation received a limited ‎response, the minimal response on Hezbollah’s part. The occupiers thought that no ‎one would dare fire at them, but from now on they will think twice before embarking on ‎a ‘joyride’ war against Lebanon. And they have already understood that if they do, they ‎will suffer exactly as the Lebanese!”‎

Abbas’ Fatah: “Martyrdom-death is a destiny ‎we assume willingly and serenely”‎ 
Source: WAFA news agency, Jan. 7, 2015
     "Fatah said that 'loyalty to the Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine is the most exalted expression of its commitment to the path and to the oath to liberate the land and to persist on the path of truth, which the Martyrs paved with their pure blood.‘ In its statement, published by the [Fatah] Culture and Information Commission today, Wednesday [Jan. 7, 2015], on the occasion of Palestinian Martyrs' Day, the movement added: 'We believe that Martyrdom-death (Istish'had) for Palestine is a destiny we assume willingly and serenely, in order [to attain] a free and dignified life for our people in the paradise of the eternal homeland. In addition, we believe that life is a great opportunity to invest everything in our power for the liberation of the homeland.' [...] The statement said: 'Our goals are the freedom and independence of the Palestinian people. Sacrifice is merely one part of the doctrine of national struggle, the aim of which is to redeem our people and its future generations. Martyrdom-death is our way to ensure the eternity of our people on its land, while it protects its Arab identity and holy places.'
On this occasion, the movement expressed its highest praise, appreciation and recognition to the souls of the Palestinian, Arab and foreign Martyrs who died as Martyrs for Palestine, and to their relatives and children. Furthermore, it swore to remain faithful to their sacrifice until all Palestinians, Arabs and free men around the world witness the establishment of a Palestinian state, and until one of their small boys or girls raises the Palestinian flag over the walls of Jerusalem, the capital of our free and independent state."

Op-ed by Faiz Abu Shamala, Hamas-affiliated columnist for the official PA daily:
Headline: Have you watched the stabbing video of the two soldiers in Jerusalem?
     “Over the last two days, a video documenting Palestinian courage and heroism in the face of the enemies has spread [in the media]... Every Palestinian has the right to feel proud of what is seen in the video of the stabbing of the two soldiers in Jerusalem. The Arab has the right to hold his head high and to assert with confidence: There are people among our nation such as this young man, who armed himself with a kitchen knife and attacked Israeli soldiers face to face - [soldiers] wearing bulletproof vests and carrying weapons, equipment, and technologically [advanced] means of protection and communication... Zionist propaganda has failed to distort the image of the Palestinian youth, who demonstrate their excellent confrontation skills using new, creative means, transmitted to us through the video. [Such] an assault with a knife on two Zionist soldiers can only be described as a battle, and a battle is nothing less than an event that involves an existential struggle whose purpose was to destroy the existence of the enemy... Now, every Palestinian raises his hand holding a knife together with this young Palestinian, and stabs the Zionists. The video exemplifies the Palestinian hero fighting a battle on the ground, not on paper or behind luxurious desks."

He clarified that the occupation courts collect large sums from the prisoners, and that 95% of the verdicts pronounced by these courts involve fines, some of which are exceedingly high...
Karake noted the existence of an even more severe policy, which the occupation courts have been adopting, and which involves the passing of sentences on prisoners that force them to pay large sums in financial compensation to Israelis who have been exposed to resistance by Palestinians (i.e., terror attacks). He noted that [a fine of] 3.5 million shekels had been imposed on prisoner Ali Sa'ada, as compensation for the families of the killed settlers, with the aim of delegitimizing the [Palestinian] national resistance against the occupation."

Will not fear the occupier’s homes(i.e., the Israeli occupation).
O Jamal, challenge their homes;
There is no solution besides revolution.

Rise, O rifle and shout for joy
For the people of Hebron

For the sake of Qawasmi, we won’t kneel [before our enemy]
His resolve will never crumble
For Palestine, sacrifice your life, Muhammad [Qawasmi].
Expand [the revolution] left and right,
Expand [it] for the men of Fatah

Mother, give me a weapon, a machine gun,
My path is the path of struggle
Just like Yasser Sharbati
Even if the blow hurts me
I will not fear death.

Hatem, even if your imprisonment is long
Qawasmi, do not fall apart.
We are faithful to vow of the heroes
And proud of the men of the revolution.
Men, tomorrow you’ll return.

Fatah member praises Intifadas, including the new “Jerusalem Intifada” 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 9, 2014
     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Jodeh Al-Nahal ‘Abu Jodeh’ said that the Stone Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1987-1993) that began in 1987 is still alive in the heart of the Palestinian people, which is continuously inspired by the spirit of this Intifada in its war against the occupation. On his official Facebook page, Al-Nahal added that the 27th anniversary of the outbreak of this blessed Intifada comes at a time when our people is experiencing the first signs of a new Intifada, because of the actions of the occupation which kills, destroys, Judaizes Jerusalem and builds settlements, thereby causing the spirit of this Intifada to be constantly present.
Al-Nahal noted that the Jerusalem Intifada (i.e., riots and murderous terror attacks carried out mainly in Jerusalem during October-November 2014) which our young people are carrying out in the Holy City comes in exactly the same context as the first Intifada, which resorted to stone [throwing] and brought fear on the occupation and aggression state, which began arresting thousands of stone children in Jerusalem and gave them severe sentences.
Al-Nahal emphasized that the spirit of struggle was always present in the memory of the Palestinian people from the Al-Buraq Intifada in 1929 (i.e., the 1929 Palestine Riots) through the 1936 Intifada (i.e., The 1936 Arab Revolt), the Stone Intifada and the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005), to the Jerusalem Intifada that is raging today in order to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Islamic and Christian holy places.”

On Oct. 29, 2014, Islamic Jihad member Mutaz Hijazi attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount. On Nov. 18, 2014, two Palestinians entered a synagogue in Jerusalem and attacked worshippers with guns, knives and axes, killing 4 worshippers and a police officer.

     “Whoever thinks the current events in occupied Jerusalem lack the characteristics of a full Intifada is wrong. So is anyone who thinks that the snowball that began rolling with the abominable crime the settlers perpetrated against Muhammad Abu Khdeir can be stopped without stopping its true causes. Likewise, whoever thinks the Intifada will be geographically confined to Jerusalem is also wrong, and whoever thinks it is the result of a decision, and that it can be contained with another decision, has not read the history [books] well. The events that have occurred in Jerusalem and its environs in the past few weeks, characterized by run-over [incidents] and stabbings, indicate that the Palestinian citizen can no longer tolerate the settlers’ riots and that the occupation government’s scheme to divide Al-Aqsa according to time and place has crossed all red lines, meaning that Palestinian action is inevitable..."

     "Many religious scholars and clerics have emphasized the importance of revitalizing and uniting the efforts and means on the local, regional and international levels for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa [compound], and to protect it [Al-Aqsa] from the occupation. In addition, they noted that the defense of Jerusalem would not be carried out with declarations, announcements and the publication of religious rulings (Fatwas), but by rushing towards Al-Aqsa and through sacrifice. These statements were made at a conference for Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa held yesterday [Nov. 13, 2014] by the Ministry of Religious Affairs [in the Gaza Strip], under the patronage of [PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida'is and with the participation of numerous religious scholars, clerics and public personalities.
Ministry of Religious Affairs representative Hassan Al-Saifi gave a speech in which he addressed the suffering of the residents of Jerusalem and the continuing Israeli desecration of Al-Aqsa. In addition, he noted that Jerusalem has no need of declarations or religious rulings, but rather needs the religious scholars in particular to fulfill their duty, rush to Jerusalem and offer sacrifices and blood. In addition, he called on the religious scholars to remove their turbans, be present on the ground, and revitalize the role of the youth in defending Al-Aqsa."

Op-ed in PLO paper calls for “individual” terror attacks to continue, i.e., car attacks, shootings, etc. 
Source: Al-Asima, bi-weekly distributed with official PA daily, Nov. 13, 2014
Op-ed by Ali Haidar from Beirut published in The Capital City, a bi-weekly paper distributed with the official PA daily:
     "... The individual operations (i.e., terror attacks) are meant to preserve a state of struggle, instead of frustration.
Even if the achievements written down by the Palestinian people are unlikely to lead to a change in the general course of the [Palestinian] issue, the continuing flow of Martyrs’ (Shahids’) blood and the heroic actions of the resistance members usually lead to a change in the course of events, and shock the enemy…
At the present time, the Palestinians have no alternative other than resistance, even if [only] as part of a temporary activity that will ensure the curtailing of the Palestinian and Arab concessions [to Israel], and – in addition – disrupt Israeli policy. At the very least, it is important that the individual actions continue – at times by means of a car ramming into groups of settlers, and at times through bullets aimed at the greatest of the rabbis lying in wait for Al-Aqsa (i.e., allusion to terrorist Mutaz Hijazi who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick on Oct. 29, 2014) – in addition to the daily demonstrations.”

In his letter, Barghouti wrote: ‘The assassination of President Yasser Arafat was an official Israeli-American decision, [and occurred] after a continuous military and political siege that was aimed at torpedoing the blessed Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) and dealing a blow to the resistance and the unity of the Palestinian people.

“O Al-Aqsa, we are obligated to redeem you with our souls and blood
(we will redeem you with our souls and blood, redeem you with our souls and blood)
We demand your soil. Woe to whoever attacks you.
...
O Al-Aqsa, we heard your sighs;
in a great rage we came to you
(we came to you, we came to you)
...
We’ll yet wipe away your sorrow’s tears
And destroy your jailor’s dungeon
(wipe away your sorrow’s tears and destroy your jailor’s dungeon)

As much as we may suffer for you
We have no choice but to liberate your lands

O Al-Aqsa, we are obligated to redeem you with our souls and blood
(redeem you with our souls and blood)
We demand your soil; Woe to whoever attacks you, woe to whoever attacks you.

By Allah, Al-Aqsa will not be divided, Al-Aqsa has been ours for years
(Al-Aqsa has been ours for years)
The world must know this – that Al-Aqsa’s people number millions.”

One of the marches, organized by Fatah, left the Al-Hussein mosque after the Friday prayers… under the heading ‘For you, Al-Aqsa.’
Other marches were held in various areas of the district, during which protesters chanted angry slogans against the occupation and calls for support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including: ‘Al-Aqsa’s gate is made of iron, only the Martyr’s (Shahid’s) blood will open it,’ and ‘With spirit, with blood, we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa.’ They [the marches] ended with confrontations with the occupation forces… In a speech held during the march organized by [Fatah] in the city, Fatah Secretary in Hebron Imad Kharwat emphasized the importance of uniting in one rank to defend Al-Aqsa from the occupation’s attacks and the settlers’ constantly recurring invasions of its courtyards. Kharwat said: ‘All the Palestinian factions and forces throughout the homeland and the diaspora must awaken to defend Al-Aqsa, which is more exalted than any of these, until the words of our late leader Yasser Arafat are realized: A boy from among our boys and a girl from among our girls will raise the Palestinian flag over the minarets and church towers of Jerusalem.’ Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein said: ‘More mass popular activity is required in support of Al-Aqsa, for this mosque is the symbol of unity. It unites and does not divide, and it represents the nation’s honor. Let us fight for it to defend it and liberate it from the occupation’s filth.’”

Qurei said the Holy City, and particularly the Al-Aqsa Mosque, were undergoing one of the most dangerous periods since the beginning of the Israeli occupation, necessitating immediate intervention in order to protect the 'first direction of prayer' [Jerusalem] and rescue it from the threat of Judaization and division according to time and space. [Qurei said that] the Israeli schemes being concocted against the Al-Aqsa Mosque must not be taken lightly or ignored, and [that] it was inconceivable that the Israeli occupier continue its atrocious aggression against the Holy City and the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Qurei reiterated his firm opposition to all violations and to the offensive of daily invasions Israel is carrying out against Al-Aqsa. Abu Alaa addressed the gravity of the situation in Jerusalem, particularly in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, as a result of the destruction and Judaization the settlers are spreading in the Mosque’s plazas.
Qurei called for increased presence and Ribat in Al-Aqsa and its environs. He welcomed the efforts of the residents of Jerusalem to block the attacks and invasions of the settlers and extremist Jews, and the fact that they were preventing them, with chests bared, from entering the Mosque and touring its plazas.”

“Then what?
A woman soldier shouted: Is that you again? Didn’t I kill you?

     “79% believe that Hamas has won the Gaza War; 3% believe Israel came out the winner; and 17% believe the two sides were losers…
An overwhelming majority of 86% support the launching of rockets from the Gaza Strip at Israel if the siege and blockade are not ended.
60% say that Hamas does not launch rockets from populated areas, but 30% say it does. 49% think it is justified for Hamas to launch rockets from populated areas and 46% disagree with that. Percentage of those who believe that launching rockets from populated areas is unjustified increases to 59% among Gazans while standing at 38% among West Bankers.
Only 30% believe that Hamas should warn Israeli civilians in the specific targeted areas before launching its rockets; 68% believe it should not do so.”

Note: This poll was conducted on August 26-30 in the aftermath of the 2014 Gaza war, in which Hamas fired thousands of rockets at Israel and Israel responded with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.

     “Only 47% believe the chances for the resumption of Palestinian-Israeli negotiations are medium or high; 51% believe the chances are low or non-existent.
The public is divided over the two-state solution: 49% support it and 50% oppose it. In our last poll two months ago, 54% supported this solution and 46% opposed it.
A majority of 53% believe that armed confrontation is the most effective means to establish a Palestinian state next to the state of Israel. Only 22% believe negotiation is the best means to establish a Palestinian state and 20% believe that popular non-violent resistance is the most effective route to statehood…
In the absence of viable negotiations, 85% support joining more international organizations; 84% support joining the International Criminal Court; 62% favor resort to popular non-violent resistance; 60% support a return to an armed intifada; 42% support a dissolution of the PA; and 24% support abandoning the two-state solution in favor of a one-state solution. It is worth mentioning that two months ago only 41% indicated support for a return to an armed intifada…
72% favors the transfer of Hamas’ armed approach to the West Bank. Support for emulating Hamas in the West Bank stands at 70% among West Bankers and 74% among Gazans.”

Each ‎time, he added something new to the ‎chain of events and their rapid ‎development in a way that served the ‎Palestinian cause – in particular, the Gaza ‎Strip, which sacrificed Martyrs (Shahids) ‎on a daily basis.‎ In his speech two days ago [Aug. 26, ‎‎2014], the President announced the end ‎of the aggression against the Gaza Strip ‎based on the Egyptian initiative, to which ‎he has supported all along. Last month, ‎he said other things suggesting that he ‎opposes the occupation and supports the ‎resistance of our people.

PA daily columnist: International law gives Palestinians the right to use "terror"against Israel 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 17, 2014
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily and advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs:
     “Neither Israel, nor any other country, has the right to accuse a Palestinian defending himself of ‘terror,’ because international law and international resolution 3236 of 1974, published by the UN, granted the Palestinian people the option of using all forms of struggle, including armed struggle, until its national objectives – the liberation from the occupation, the establishment of the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital and the granting of the right of return of the Palestinian refugees according to the international [UN] resolution 194 – are achieved.”

Note: PA leaders have legitimized Palestinian violence by quoting UN resolution 3236 which "recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to regain its rights by all means." The PA has chosen to ignore the continuation of the resolution which states that the use of "all means" should be "in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations." The UN Charter prohibits targeting civilians, even in war. Chapter 1, Article 1, states that "international disputes" should be resolved "by peaceful means."
UN resolution 194 states that "the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date." Palestinian leaders argue this means that all Arabs who left Israel during the war (hundreds of thousands) and their descendants (a few million) have a "right of return" to Israel. Israel argues that the resolution only calls for a limited return and only under certain conditions, especially focusing on the words "wishing to return... and live at peace with their neighbors."
Hamas spokesman calls for liberating Jerusalem and calls Gaza war a victory 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Aug. 17, 2014
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri: “The time has come to say today that our true battle is not for opening the [border] crossings. Our true battle is for the liberation of Jerusalem, Allah willing.”
Man on loudspeaker and audience: “[Remember] Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return! Resistance (i.e., Hamas), Resistance. We are all Resistance.”
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri: “The battle will continue. But the time has come to say: Not only will our people no longer accept the blockade – our people will also no longer accept the defiling of our land by this occupation. Therefore, starting today, the Resistance (i.e., Hamas) is preparing not only to open a crossing somewhere or other, but to liberate our Palestinian land. This is the truth [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu must grasp. We have grown more confident and [are] more determined to launch the battle of liberation, [to] end the occupation, stop Judaization [and] liberate our land and holy places. We have become more determined after the great victory achieved by the resistance in this heroic battle (i.e., reference to the 2014 Gaza war, of which Hamas portrays itself as victorious).”

Note: Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were killed in the battle, which marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see this event as a precursor to future wars against Jews. At extemist gatherings and rallies, this slogan is often chanted as a threat to Jews implying that they should expect to be defeated and killed again by Muslims.

PA Mufti praises "the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque Intifada‎," threatens violence if Jews try to pray at site of "alleged Temple" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 13, 2014
Official PA TV News interviewed the PA ‎Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad ‎Hussein, following a news report stating ‎that Muslims would only be allowed into ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Fridays and ‎Saturdays. The report claimed that this ‎decision was part of an unofficial division ‎of prayer times for Jews and Muslims on ‎the Temple Mount as part of a plan to ‎divide the mosque between Jews and ‎Muslims.‎
PA Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh ‎Muhammad Hussein: “I wish to remind ‎‎[any] intelligent person – if there is ‎anyone intelligent in the Israeli ‎government – that [former Israeli Prime ‎Minister Ariel] Sharon’s entering the Al-‎Aqsa Mosque in 2000 triggered the ‎eruption of the glorious Al-Aqsa Mosque ‎Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-‎‎2005). Then, the Palestinian people did ‎not remain silent in view of the ‎desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and ‎the Palestinian people will not remain ‎silent, under any circumstances, in view ‎of the division of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, ‎whether according to time or to place. This ‎nation will not suffer for long the dreams, ‎illusions and tales of those in whose ‎minds the alleged Temple lurks – [the ‎Temple which they claim stood] where the ‎Al-Aqsa Mosque stands.”‎

Note:‎ The division according to time or place ‎refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being ‎reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would ‎allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on ‎the Temple Mount. The law seeks to ‎implement separate prayer times for ‎Muslims and Jews at the site.‎

     “The Islamic Jihad and Hamas movements in the Jenin district organized processions in support of the resistance in Gaza. Hundreds of Hamas supporters set out in a procession from the large mosque in the center of Jenin, during which they waved Hamas flags. The Islamic Jihad procession set out from mosques in the Jenin refugee camp. The two processions merged in the city center, where [they] halted. The participants [in the march] chanted slogans and songs demanding that the Resistance [in Gaza] bomb all the occupied territories (i.e., all of Israel) in response to the [Israeli] aggression and to avenge the blood of the fallen Martyrs (Shahids)…
These processions come at a time when the occupation forces are renewing their aggression against Gaza following a three- day humanitarian ceasefire, because [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu’s administration refused the Palestinian delegation’s terms for extending the ceasefire or reaching an agreement. This has inflamed the situation and led to the resumption of military activity on the part of the occupation forces as well as of the resumption of activity of [and] the Palestinian resistance, which has fired additional shells and rockets towards the occupied Palestinian (i.e., Israeli) cities.”

     “Life in Beit Sahour was about to resume after a long night during which people stayed up to follow the news from Gaza, when a huge explosion shook the city. It soon became clear that the explosion had been caused by a [Palestinian] rocket that had fallen on the home of the Issa Atoun family in the center of town. The last thing the city’s residents, who demonstrate every evening against the aggression in Gaza, had expected was to become involved in the battle minutes before the ceasefire came into effect, when the resistance launched rocket barrages at the settlements near Jerusalem… The rocket partially destroyed the top floors of the house, and caused a blackout in part of the city of Beit Sahour. There were no casualties, which prompted the residents to say, ‘[better our] property than the children.’ But where did the rocket come from? The immediate answer was that it was one of the resistance’s rockets, but this was a source of unease for many residents, who enthusiastically support these rockets. Nonetheless, they said that, as long as people are not hurt, they are ready to sacrifice everything for the resistance.  Hana Qumsiyeh, a pensioner, said: ‘The loudness of the rocket blast indicates what panic the Zionists must have felt when [the rockets] fell among them. We hope that in the future, the rockets will be more accurate.’”

We killed 32 Israelis and 65 Palestinians were killed as Martyrs (Shahids) (reference to Operation Defensive Shield). We were alone in the Muqata’a (the PA's Presidential Headquarters in Ramallah). Hamas wasn’t with us. But we didn’t condemn them and didn’t say to them: ‘Where were you?’

     "[Mahmoud] Abbas realized that by staying outside the arena, he would be excluded from the political game. He also knows that the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank is ready for an explosion. Therefore, he gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose. Isn't the Quranic verse he quoted during his last speech, "Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory" [Sura 22:39, trans. Sahih International] a clear sign to loosen the reins on the street?
Furthermore, what is the meaning of Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi's statement regarding the West Bank's need to enter into an armed Intifada? It's been a long time since we heard a member of the Fatah leadership talk about weapons. The West Bank's entrance into the line of confrontation will reshuffle the cards, and the action is still just beginning. Israel will not agree to a third Intifada, and this is precisely what Abbas wants. He wants Israel to knock on his door in order to find a solution."

Hamas cleric:
"Our belief about fighting you [Jews] is that we will exterminate you, until the last one, and we will not leave of you even one. For you are the usurpers of the land, foreigners, mercenaries of the present and of all times. Look at history, brothers: Wherever there were Jews, they spread corruption... (Quran): "They spread corruption in the land, and Allah does not like corrupters." Their belief is destructive. Their belief fulfills the prophecy. Our belief is in obtaining our rights on our land, implementing Shari'ah (Islamic law) under Allah's sky."

Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist ‎for official PA daily
‎     “There is not a single Palestinian patriot ‎who opposes any form of resistance, ‎especially armed resistance. Firstly, ‎because it is the right of the Palestinian ‎Arab people to employ all forms of struggle ‎until its national goals are realized. ‎Secondly, in 1975, international law (i.e., ‎UN Resolution 3236 of 1974, which ‎reaffirmed the “right of the Palestinian ‎people to regain its rights by all means in ‎accordance with the purposes and ‎principles of the Charter of the United ‎Nations) guaranteed [the right of] ‎Palestinians to employ all forms of ‎struggle. Thirdly, the Israeli occupation ‎and aggression state refuses to accept the ‎option of peace and the two-state solution ‎according to the June 4, 1967 borders, ‎‎[but instead] launches one war after the ‎other, invades and perpetrates the most ‎heinous forms of Holocaust against the ‎Palestinian people in the West Bank, ‎Gaza and the diaspora… In addition, it ‎continues its construction projects in its ‎colonies, through the expropriation and ‎Judaization of lands, rejecting and ‎ignoring international laws and ‎regulations. As long as [this continues,] ‎the Palestinians have the right to defend ‎themselves in all ways guaranteed by ‎international laws and norms.”‎

PA TV positive portrayal of suicide bombing 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, July 17, 2014
PA TV broadcast a video during the 2014 Gaza war which appears to encourage suicide bombing. The video was based on a poem written by Mahmoud Darwish, the Palestinian national poet. While some literature analysts say the deeper meaning of the poem is a critique on suicide bombings, the words PA TV chose to include in its video clip seem to present suicide bombing positively:
     "She [Gaza] wraps her waist with mines and explodes,
It is neither death nor suicide.
It is Gaza's way to declare its right to life
She scratched the enemy's face
And repelled them from satisfaction with time,
because time in Gaza is something else
In Gaza the enemy could be victorious
The high sea could be victorious on an island.
They may cut down all her trees; they may break her bones
They could plant tanks in her children's chests and women's bellies and throw her into the sea, sand or blood
But she will never repeat the lies or say "yes" to the invaders;
she will continue to explode
It is neither death nor suicide.
It is Gaza's way to declare its right to life."

‎     “Israel, which embarked on this war over a ‎month ago – [this war] which culminated ‎in a bloody attack in Gaza ten days ago – ‎had been negotiating with the PLO…‎
But suddenly, Netanyahu overturned the ‎table, torpedoed the negotiations, and ‎invented, together with his [security] ‎forces, a vague story – the kidnapping and ‎murder of the three Israeli youths – and ‎Israel hastily and madly initiated a war that ‎had been planned [from the start].‎
Why? Why torpedo the negotiations? Why ‎this frenzied and bloody attack? ...‎
Netanyahu ‎wants to circumvent the idea of the ‎Palestinian state and remove from ‎discussion the section on the [Palestinian] ‎state. Are he, his army and his state ‎capable of realizing this crazed ambition? ‎I say to you: No, a thousand times no, ‎because Israel – with whom we have ‎chosen [the path of] peace and ‎negotiations – knows that there is always ‎another option! This is what Israel’s ‎founding leaders knew, and this is what ‎‎[today’s] Israeli leaders know, despite their ‎racist madness – and Israel’s allies know it ‎‎[too].‎
There is always another option: the option ‎of violent struggle, the armed struggle. ‎And this is a legitimate option for a people ‎under occupation. We, the Palestinians, ‎have been among the most prominent ‎symbols [of armed struggle] in the world; ‎more importantly, we introduced ‎innovations that had been previously ‎unknown, and developed its methods in a ‎way consistent with the unique ‎characteristics of our cause!”‎

Umbrella terror org.: “Escalate resistance in all its forms” against Israel’s “unlimited war of extermination”

This article was published during the 2014 Gaza war as Hamas was firing thousands of rockets at Israel and as Israel was responding with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel:
     “The [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces in the Ramallah and El-Bireh (i.e., in the West Bank) district called for a united position on the political level and on the ground to confront the ‘criminal and bloody’ Israeli aggression against our people in the Gaza Strip. In addition, they accused the occupation of harming defenseless citizens and of destroying homes in order to increase the number of casualties, as part of an unlimited war of extermination.
The forces called [on all citizens] to escalate the resistance in all its forms throughout the Palestinian territories, to inflame the villages against the occupation and its settlers, to block bypass roads and create points of friction, and said that any presence of the occupation on Palestinian land constituted a legitimate target from our people’s point of view, as determined by international decisions.”

Note: The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces is an umbrella organization of several terror organizations active during the 2000-2005 PA terror campaign known as the Second Intifada, whose members included the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) and the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ military wing).

     ‎“As long as rockets are being launched by ‎the weaker Palestinian side, [rockets] ‎whose launchers are going to great ‎lengths so they may perhaps balance their ‎heavy losses with a number of losses in ‎the ranks of the aggressive criminals… We ‎may rightly wonder: where is Hezbollah? ‎‎...

Come and see what happened...

The Zionist, by Allah, is treacherous
O settler, O malicious one
Your time has ended
Read the papers, lawless settler
And hear, O settlers:
You have neither conscience nor religion.
Bastards, all of you
You were brought to this land
From [Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor] Liberman’s Russia,
from Ethiopia and Sudan
And the settler is like a monkey...

O world, O sleepers
The birds alight on your heads
Look, see what has happened in Palestine
Where are the decision-makers?

This [West] Bank is protected
And the hearts in it are burning.
O Arabs, enough betrayal:
We wish for the blood to become rivers...

This homeland wants [your] rage -
It does not want you to wait.”

PFLP justifies kidnapping of 3 teens and calls for more kidnappings: "This is the only ‎and most efficient way" to free prisoners 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, June 14, 2014
‎     “Popular Front [for the Liberation of ‎Palestine] Political Bureau member and ‎Head of the Popular Front Branch in Gaza ‎Jamil Mazhar said that the Hebron ‎operation (i.e., the kidnapping of three ‎Israeli teens on June 12, 2014) – if it ‎‎[indeed] turns out to be a kidnapping – ‎was part of the natural response to the ‎occupation’s crimes against our people ‎and the prisoners in the occupation ‎prisons. In a statement to the local press, ‎Mazhar said: ‘In light of its ethnic ‎cleansing in Jerusalem, its Judaization, ‎settlement and abuse of prisoners, the ‎occupation cannot expect our people to sit ‎quietly and idly. It is the right of the ‎resistance to continue the struggle in all ‎forms, in order to force it [Israel] to accede ‎to the resistance’s conditions and the ‎demands of the heroic prisoners who ‎have been maintaining an empty stomach ‎campaign (i.e., hunger strike) for the last ‎‎52 days, to bring about the cancellation of ‎the administrative detentions and protect ‎their dignity and rights.’‎
Mazhar added that the prisoners have a ‎right to enjoy freedom and to being with ‎their families and our people, because ‎they are freedom fighters. It is our duty ‎towards them [to ensure that] the ‎resistance factions intensify their activities ‎and kidnap soldiers, because this is the ‎only and most efficient way to free them, ‎as the resistance has taught us many ‎times in the past…‎
Mazhar demanded that the PLO protect ‎the resistance and give it a free hand, [that ‎it] not restrain or persecute it, and to ‎immediately cease the security ‎cooperation with this criminal occupation.”‎

Islamic Jihad official: Kidnapping Israeli soldiers is the only way to release prisoners 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, June 13, 2014
     “Khaled Al-Batsh, a senior official in the Islamic Jihad, emphasized that the kidnapping of [Israeli] soldiers is the only way to release prisoners. He noted that all prisoner release deals in recent years were achieved by kidnapping soldiers.
At a Friday sermon held in front of the Red Cross headquarters in Gaza, Al-Batsh said: ‘The struggle with the enemy will remain open thanks to the prisoners’ stomachs and their hunger strike, the attacks of the Martyrdom-seekers (i.e., suicide bombers) and the resolve of the besieged in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jerusalem, Acre and Haifa, until it ends favorably for our people, who possess the right [to the land]…’ He added: ‘We won’t get anything from the enemy except through [prisoner] exchange deals, and we won’t obtain Palestine without sacrifice.’”

Notes: Al-Batsh's statement was issued the day after Israeli students Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction.

On April 24, 2014, 120 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons on administrative detention began a hunger strike. They were eventually joined by 180 more inmates. 75 participants required hospitalization. The hunger strike ended on June 25, 2014.
Islamic-Christian Jerusalem Council calls on Palestinians to wage Ribat at Al-Aqsa Mosque

     “Secretary-General of the Islamic-Christian Council for Jerusalem and the Holy Places Hanna Issa called on the residents of Jerusalem and the brothers from the Palestinian interior (i.e., Israel) to come to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and wage Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in it, in light of the aid being provided by the Israeli Security Forces to the Zionist attacks aimed at invading Al-Aqsa …
At the end of the statement, the Secretary-General said that this series of steps and preparations [toward invading the Al-Aqsa Mosque] are being carried out before the [Jewish] holiday of Shavuot, one of the holidays of pilgrimage ordained by the Torah, meaning that masses of Jews are required to perform pilgrimage to and enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque to perform the commandments of the Torah… This reveals, if anything, the extent of the brutal attack being planned to implement their plans of building the alleged Temple on the ruins of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in full cooperation with the [Israeli] National Security Forces.”

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.
Sheikh: "Who will wield this sword" for Al-Aqsa Mosque?

Columnist in official PA daily: "I hope Iran and Hezbollah... will rain tens of thousands of missiles a day on Israel"

Op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen , originally published in the Al-Hayat daily:
     “The nuclear talks between Iran and the six powers in Geneva ended last week in failure, and the sides set July 20 as the new final date [for reaching an agreement]…
[Israeli PM Benjamin] Netanyahu, the terrorist, [lives] in an occupying state that kills, destroys and expels, has a nuclear arsenal and chemical weapons; and then he demands that Syria’s chemical weapons be dismantled and threatens war on Iran if it doesn’t abandon its nuclear program. The US is conducting negotiations [with Iran] on Israel’s behalf, since it is inconceivable that Iran could threaten US security, either today or a thousand years from now.
I followed the negotiations until they failed, and read in the Likud’s American media: ‘Is it possible to trust Ahmadinejad with an unlimited arsenal of nuclear weapons?’ And I say: Yes, I trust Ahmadinejad a thousand times more than I trust Netanyahu and the war criminals in his government. Furthermore, Ahmadinejad is no longer president of Iran, and never will be again, and the current president, Hassan Rouhani, is known for his moderation…
Of course, Israel opposes the entire Iranian nuclear program and threatens to attack the Iranian nuclear facilities alone, if the six powers do not agree with what it wants. Personally, I hope Israel does attack Iran, because then Iran and Hezbollah will rain tens of thousands of missiles a day on Israel.”

Palestinian PA Parliament (Legislative ‎Council) member and PFLP ‎representative Khalida ‎Jarrar:
“First ‎of all, in principle, we must not give up ‎any option for freeing the prisoners. I’m ‎not saying who will do this or how they ‎will do so. [We] must not give up any ‎option. That includes the option of the ‎struggle and the revolutionary option. ‎I’m not saying we are calling on people ‎to start a revolution – that’s not the ‎point – but we must not give up this ‎option, and this means we must cease ‎security coordination [with Israel]. ‎
There is a minimum and a maximum. ‎The maximum, or the truth, is that ‎Palestine belongs to the Palestinians, ‎from the [Jordan] River to the ‎‎[Mediterranean] Sea (i.e., replacing all of Israel). We must not cede ‎this narrative. From the River to the ‎Sea, Palestine for the Palestinians. ‎Now they’re talking about a political ‎compromise, about a country within the ‎‎1967 borders, that’s called a political ‎compromise, and it hasn’t materialized, ‎‎[but] will only materialize [in the ‎future]‎, because, to this day, we ‎haven’t accepted the 1967 borders ‎either – but even a compromise on the ‎‎1967 borders must not lead us to ‎renounce that Palestine from the River ‎to the Sea belongs to the Palestinians; ‎and the heart of the matter is the right ‎of return, our cause is the right of ‎return.”‎

For its part, the Islamic Jihad said in a ‎statement that it ‘welcomes the heroic ‎shooting operation near the Tarkumia ‎checkpoint in Hebron, in the occupied ‎Palestinian [West] Bank.’ It said that ‘the ‎operation in Hebron was a natural ‎response to the crimes of the occupation ‎and the settlers against our people in the ‎‎[West] Bank and Gaza, and especially to ‎the settlers’ infiltration into the plazas of ‎the blessed Al-Aqsa mosque. ’”‎

     “Fatah Central Committee Member Marwan Barghouti (serving 5 life sentences planning terror attacks, -Ed.) and Secretary General of the Popular Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] Ahmad Sa’adat (serving 30 years for heading terror organization, -Ed.) have issued a call to stop counting on the negotiations with Israel, since they have been proven futile. They called for bolstering the resistance in all its forms and for consolidating the reconciliation according to the Prisoners’ Document (a document signed by five Palestinian prisoners in Israel in 2006 and calling for national unity between the Palestinian factions –Ed.).
The two leaders made [their] statements during interviews conducted by the Journal of Palestine Studies through the prison bars. The [interviews] will be published in the journal’s 98th edition (spring 2014) [parenthesis in source], which will be distributed in hardcover starting the beginning of next week…
Sa’adat rejected limiting the resistance to one form [only]. He emphasized that it is necessary to have ‘the capacity to give preference to one method or another [of resistance] over the other methods in any [given] situation, according to what is required in that situation, or according to the political period.’
He [Sa’adat] said: ‘Proposing popular resistance as an option for struggle does not require choosing [one] preferred method from among the [various] forms and methods of struggle… Limiting popular resistance to peaceful resistance empties it of its revolutionary meaning, since the great popular Palestinian Intifada was a model for popular resistance, and a guide for several distinct forms and methods of resistance: peaceful and violent [resistance]; [resistance] of the masses and factions; economic, political, and cultural [resistance].'"

We have a weapon deadlier than Israel’s arsenal. We have several types of weapons, and the best weapon at our disposal is what was realized during these days: the unity of the Palestinian Interior (i.e., of the Israeli Arabs) – from the north of the country to the south. [And] we say: the Negev is not alone. My dear friends, as for the other weapon – I call and say: Our children – specifically, the children of the Bedouins of the Negev – I call on them from this podium: You who wear [Israeli] army uniforms, you must cast off this attire to protest the destruction of our homes and the expropriation of our lands… You should be ashamed… [shouts in Hebrew:] I appeal to all Bedouin soldiers to cast off their uniforms to protest the destruction of [our] homes and the expropriation of [our] lands.”

In other words, he failed to draw the world's attention, and so resorted to the Israeli occupation's traditional method - killing Palestinians in order to provoke a hurried Palestinian reaction. How do you see this?

Sheikh Jamal Khattab: “The Islamic [Jihadist] Movement fulfilled this role [in light of its] Islamic background. The source is that Islam calls for Jihad and to seek Martyrdom death (Istish'had) and to liberate the land. Most of the Palestinian people are Muslim by nature. Even those who weren’t in Islamic organizations come from a religious morality. Even Fatah’s first declaration was ‘Out of our faith in holy Jihad.’ Therefore we took on this role at that time so as to fulfill the Islamic reality of the period, because everyone was asking what the Muslims’ role in liberating Palestine was.”

Armed operations (i.e., terror attacks) are one form of resistance; political activity is another; the dissemination of information, negotiations, the nonviolent popular struggle – all these are forms [of resistance]. This is the way of all nations. Armed operations serve the negotiations. All freedom movements end up sitting at the negotiating table.”
Host: “In other words, you – the Palestinian Authority – don’t oppose armed resistance to the occupation?”

At the moment, we are leaning on the nonviolent public struggle. The circumstances of reality, [our] independent capabilities, the objective possibilities, – these are the things that determine the form of struggle: Will it be diplomatic action?

Host: “’Sphere of activity’, that is to say…”

Host: “Weapons.”
Tirawi: “Weapons or popular resistance. There are a hundred ways of resistance. [So] let’s get on with the resistance. But [this doesn’t mean] every organization can engage in resistance in whatever way it wants. It doesn’t work that way. There has to be a Palestinian strategic national plan, one that is acceptable to everyone – both to those in the PLO and to those outside the PLO and which will be implemented by Palestinians. At that point, we will see what method of resistance is appropriate for that stage, and we will act accordingly... What you are hearing from Fatah isn’t anything new... At our Sixth Convention, held in Bethlehem, we did not rule out any of our options for resistance, of which armed struggle is one.”

Al-Damiri spoke of the importance of bolstering peaceful popular resistance in the confrontation with the occupation, settler droves and attempted attacks on Palestinian people and land. He noted that the Palestinian people has done wonders by carrying out peaceful popular resistance throughout the history of its modern revolution, and has been brilliantly successful in this. The greatest example of this is the ‘Children of the Stones’ Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1988-1993) that exposed the occupation’s shame to the world and showed the savagery of the Israeli army when confronting the children of Palestine who were using songs, shouts and stones in their struggle. Al-Damiri said that peaceful popular resistance should be organized and expanded in new and clever ways."

I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know where Jihad is supposed to take place. [Applause from the audience] I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know to where we should direct efforts or where to concentrate the masses. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know this. Those who send young people to Syria or elsewhere to die for a misdirected cause must stop and understand that Jerusalem is still waiting. Jerusalem is the direction, Jerusalem is the address. [Abbas and audience applaud.] A compass that does not point to Jerusalem, Muhammad has nothing to do with it. Put an end to your ignorance, and recognize that you [those fighting in Syria] are nothing more than small tools in a game [controlled by] malicious hands that are running a filthy game to crush the Ummah (Islamic Nation) and diminish it, and deflect the compass, away from its true direction.”

An Israeli car approached, with two in it. I said, here's a chance and I don't want to return empty-handed. They left the car... and walked towards the valley, and sat down under a pine tree. I went down to them. Of course I was masked and was carrying a rifle. He asked me: Are you a guard here? I told him: 'No, I'm in my home.' I told him: 'You are not allowed here. This is our land and our country. You stole it and occupied our land and I'm going to act against you.' They were surprised by what I told them. I tied them up of course and then sentenced them to death by shooting, in the name of the revolution. I shot them, one bullet each, and went [hiding] in the mountains... I went to my aunt and told her: 'We have avenged Muhammad's blood.'"

She carried the rifle, she was on the front lines…Dalal Mughrabi was at the front lines, she led men in the battle of defiance and in the resistance against the occupation... She led a quality operation (i.e., terror attack) in the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Israel). She killed dozens of Israeli army officers, and she was the leader of this operation. She led men.

'Oh Palestinians, [the Israeli] with the rifle shot you,
the Zionists are killing your doves in your sacred area.
Oh Palestinians, I want to go and be with you.
Fire is in my hands, and with you, attack the snake's head (Israel).

Oh Palestinians, the revolution is certain,
with the rifle we will impose our new life.
Oh Palestinians, the revolution is certain

Note: Hulagu - the grandson of Ghengis Khan, founder of the Mongol Empire. Hulagu was a Mongol ruler who defeated Muslim armies in the 13thcentury, spreading death and destruction in much of the Muslim world that he conquered. The expansion of his empire stopped after the Muslim Mamluks defeated him at the battle of Ain Jalut in modern-day northern Israel. The PA depicts Hulagu as a tyrant and the battle of Ain Jalut as a historic battle and victory in Muslim history.

     “Thousands of enraged participants brought 25 year-old Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Rabbah Asi to burial in the village of Beit Lakia, north-west of occupied Jerusalem, amidst calls for the political echelon to end negotiations [with Israel] and [calls] for the armed resistance brigades to avenge this assassination crime. […]
The funeral set out from the government’s Palestinian Medical Complex in the city of Ramallah, attended by District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam…
Participants at the funeral voiced demands to end negotiations [with Israel] in light of Israel’s intentional aggression and harm [to] the Palestinian people’s lives and its legitimate rights. They demanded that the armed opposition factions respond to the incessant occupation crimes and adhere to the resistance option.”

Symbol of Fatah is “all guns [aimed] against the Zionist enemy” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 20, 2013
PA TV program A Personal Encounter hosted head of Political Guidance in Fatah in Lebanon, Bilal Aslan:
Aslan: “Brother Yasser Arafat would always speak about the rifle and the rifle’s importance in the Palestinian revolution, on condition it was used in the correct way against the Zionist enemy. And he had a motto (something that characterized him), from the 1960s, and this is the motto of the Fatah movement – [aim] all the rifles at the Zionist enemy. Even other leaders, on whose thinking and on whose way in leading the Palestinian revolution and Fatah we were raised – such as commander Martyr (Shahid) Abu Jihad Al-Wazir would say: ‘it doesn’t matter how we use the weapon and how we carry the weapon. What is important is how we use [it] and against whom we use the weapon.’ Therefore, the enemy is the main thing and the only target of the Fatah movement and of the Palestinian fighter is the Israeli enemy. We have no other enemy in any other place besides the Israeli enemy. For this reason, brother Yasser Arafat would say that he who shoots in the air lessens the revolution and doesn’t appreciate the value of weapons. The goal is to aim the rifle against the Israeli enemy and not at weddings, celebrations and events…”
PA TV host: “We really need things like these to be found in our society these days, whether in Palestinian [society] or in Lebanese [society].”

Text on the map: “Glory and eternity for the upright Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine.”

Headline: “Tirawi: ‘We will have a Palestinian state from the [Jordan] river to the Mediterranean Sea’”
     “Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi attended a ceremony in appreciation of the prisoners’ families and a reception for new students, held yesterday [Oct. 8, 2013] by the student council of the [Palestine] Polytechnic University in Hebron, in coordination with Fatah’s Shabiba organization (Fatah youth movement)…
He turned to the audience of students and said: ‘Fatah was the first self-sacrificing fighter, (from Fedayeen - self-sacrificing fighter, someone prepared to die for a cause), the first female self-sacrificing fighter, the first stone, the first bullet, the first male prisoner and first female prisoner.’…
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. [He added] that we will have a state from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.”

Columnist calls for “continued armed resistance” to defend Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 29, 2013
From an article by Najib al-Qaddumi entitled “On the anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada”:
     “This year the anniversary of the [outbreak] of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (PA terror campaign)… occurs when the threat to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque is most severe…
[The area of Al-Aqsa] is the place that connects earth to heaven, and yet the Arabs and Muslims have forgotten it, or pretend to have forgotten it, as if they are waiting for the mosque to be destroyed, and then – after it is all over – [they] will begin condemnations and demonstrations and sit-down strikes. This reaction will soon be forgotten, and we will then be left to weep over Al-Aqsa as we wept so much over the rest of Palestine, the Golan, the Alexandretta district, and Andalucía.
Why are the Arabs and Muslims waiting around at a time when [non-Palestinian Muslims] are prohibited from even praying at the Al-Aqsa Mosque? The rescue of Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the resistance to the Judaization of the city require an official as well as a popular collective stand; they require financial and moral support; they require honest intent, far from slogans and empty declarations; they require international relations that will compel the Israeli entity to implement international resolutions; and they require a continuation of and support for popular resistance; they require the isolation of this entity (i.e., Israel) [to be brought about by] influencing the states that have influence over it, even via economic pressure including an oil [embargo]; and [they require] continued armed resistance in the face of Israeli obstinacy and targeting of [Palestinian] citizens.”

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."
