Headline: “How did the PA Security Forces aid in the assassination of the one who carried out the operation in Salfit?”
       “Satisfaction prevails among the occupation authorities after they succeeded in assassinating (sic., he was killed during an exchange of gunfire while resisting arrest) the one who carried out the heroic operation (i.e., terror attack) in Salfit, Omar Abu Laila (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2).
The occupation leaders are expressing their joy over having succeeded in assassinating Abu Laila, and emphasizing that the operation would not have been possible without the close security cooperation with the PA Security Forces in the occupied West Bank (sic., Abu Laila was found through Israeli intelligence efforts including the arrest of one of his key collaborators; Israeli leaders have not mentioned PA security cooperation in this context -Ed.)...”

He added that this is an attempt to harm the determination of our political leadership, which is rejecting ‘the deal of the century’ (refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan –Ed.).

Op-ed in official PA daily refers to Hamas as "the face of treason... the supporters of Satan," and calls for armed revolt against Hamas 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 20, 2019
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

      “Gaza, the time has come. The face of treason has been exposed, the shame of the supporters of Satan and partners of the occupation has been exposed… O Gaza… the time has come, arise, call out ‘Allahu Akbar’ (i.e., “Allah is greatest”), rise up and punish the traitors. Have no mercy on them, because they – the Hamas organization – know that your heart is full of mercy. Be careful that they not trick you with crocodile tears, be careful lest your heart soften due to their satanic prayers. After all, you gave them every opportunity, and they squandered them and sold them in the market of heresy… O Gaza, the time has come. Tighten the noose around them. Hang them with the ropes of their treason, for the shame and disgrace is theirs, and this is the end of the traitorous heretics…”

Editorial in PA daily criticizes “those [Palestinians] who are still placing our children’s lives in danger from the Israeli killing bullets through their populist displays”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 11, 2019
Excerpt of editorial by the official PA daily

     "The Israeli occupation soldiers shoot at our children only because they want to murder the Palestinian future, or to make them disabled if we choose the less racist option – and the problem is 'the leaders of the resistance' in the wounded Gaza Strip do not understand this! […] We are not absolving the Israeli occupation of responsibility for this matter, as it is continuing the criminal persecution of our children in order to destroy their tender lives… However, just as we pursue the occupation, so too there is no choice but to pursue those who are still placing our children’s lives in danger from the Israeli killing bullets through their populist displays. We must not be silent any longer about this matter. Palestine has the right that its children will learn and grow in order to be pillars of the future of freedom and independence, and the children in Palestine have the right to be protected and defended by it [Palestine] so that they will live their lives in happiness."

PLO Chief Negotiator: “Hamas must bear the full responsibility for what is happening to the members of our people”

PLO Executive Committee Secretary, Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat: “Hamas must bear the full responsibility for what is happening to the members of our people – for what is happening when a ship of migrants fleeing the homeland sinks (refers to ship carrying 35 Palestinian illegal migrants, mostly from Gaza, that sank traveling from Turkey to Greece on Jan. 18, 2019, killing 1 –Ed.). And what is this all for? For what?

      “Supreme Shari’ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash said that there is suspicious and dangerous coordination between the statements of the occupation state’s leaders and the statements of the Hamas Movement’s leaders on all that is connected to an attack on [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas. The former talks in the occupation government’s Cabinet about the ways of getting rid of him (apparently refers to Israeli Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan saying on Jan. 13, 2019 that Israel should not allow Abbas to return after he travels abroad –Ed.), as they did to the late [PA] President Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat (refers to PA libel that Israel assassinated Arafat; see note below –Ed.); while the latter [Hamas] writes to the parliaments of the world’s states and claims that [Abbas] should have his legal qualifications [to serve as president] revoked…  The supreme Shari’ah judge emphasized that this coordination of statements and the attack on the Palestinian leadership led by the president is not coincidental, because both Israel and Hamas incite against the president morning and night, challenge his legitimacy, and want to assassinate him.”

PA daily op-ed accuses Hamas of being a “Zionist pawn,” whose suicide bombings were meant to harm the PA, Arafat was “assassinated”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 6, 2019
Excerpt of an op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “The Zionist pawn destroys the PA TV offices”
     “One who decides to break into the offices of the [Palestine] Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) while masked and to destroy and shatter everything inside it is certainly a Zionist pawn (refers to attack on PBC offices in Gaza on Jan. 4, 2019). This is because it is impossible that any patriotic Palestinian would commit this crime against a national institution whose main work is to defend the Palestinian people and its cause… Since nothing happens in the Gaza Strip without Hamas' knowledge, it bears the responsibility as the de-facto government… Let us ask ourselves in a moment of clear thinking: What has Hamas really achieved for the Palestinian people? … As much as Hamas will attempt to hide behind the word ‘resistance’… its actual activity and its results on the ground are the destruction of the Palestinian cause. Is one who behaves this way not a Zionist pawn?"

I say wholeheartedly, regardless of who it angers, and do as you will: Hamas has become a contemptible tool in the hands of Israel and America. It is implementing 'the deal of the century' with complete criminality, and with boundless insolence. You will tear the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian West Bank."

Op-ed in official PA daily accuses Hamas of “sacrificing members of our people, the children and the young people”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 30, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "Hamas maneuvers and the sponsor [Egypt] is broiled in the sun"

"Every civilian and person that follows the [Hamas-Fatah] reconciliation process can see that the Hamas Movement always finds false excuses and invented excuses to put a stick in its wheels and to thwart its progress, as this is not an interest of the Muslim Brotherhood. Therefore, it has again turned to creating a fictitious escalation on the border and to sacrificing members of our people, the children and the young people, for the sake of its separatist statements, in exchange for cooperation and running through the maze of the American deal of the century (i.e., US President Donald Trump's as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan). This is despite the fact that even the Americans themselves have begun to gradually back down from this given the difficulty in marketing and making it pass due to the firm stance of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and the PLO leadership against it, alongside its rejection by the UN and the world's central authorities."

PLO official: Hamas is changing the goals of the March of Return “to favor the personal party agendas that have no connection to the right of return” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 23, 2018
Headline: "Al-Zaq: Hamas is acting to distort the idea of the peaceful popular struggle"

"National Activity Council Secretary, [Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF) political bureau member, and Secretary of the PPSF in Gaza] Mahmoud Al-Zaq said that the Hamas Movement is acting to distort the idea of peaceful popular struggle by diverting the direction of the March of Return (i.e., violent riots on the Gaza-Israel border) in order to realize personal party agendas.
Al-Zaq added yesterday [Sept. 22, 2018] in statements to [official PA radio station] The Voice of Palestine that Hamas has added a special clause to the main goals of the March of Return and turned it into a primary goal – breaking the siege in order to realize its personal agendas. In other words, it wants to be recognized and that a bilateral agreement between it and Israel will be signed. This means that Gaza will become a political entity that signs agreements, and herein lays the danger as the center of the American plan is to establish a tiny state for the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
He continued and said that the attempt to change the struggle's position and its goals has caused the national forces to aggressively criticize what is happening. He explained that it was agreed from the beginning not to push the young people into dangerous areas and turn them into cannon fodder for the occupation's army, but there are clear attempts on Hamas' part to change the goals of the March of Return to favor the personal party agendas that have no connection to the right of return.
Al-Zaq explained that Hamas is acting in a completely absurd and wrong manner, and all of this is part of its personal agenda to continue its rule of the Gaza Strip by applying pressure to extract regional recognition of it as [having] political weight in the Gaza Strip.

Fatah official: Hamas is attempting “to cover its inability to manage the affairs of our residents in Gaza” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 21, 2018
“The Fatah Movement expressed its strong condemnation and rejection of Hamas Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri’s statements, which included a series of lies and deceptions that harm our people’s unity, its struggle, and its national project. Head of the [Fatah] Mobilization and Organization Commission’s Information Office Munir Al-Jaghoub said yesterday [Sept. 20, 2018] that the Hamas Movement’s insistence on repeating its broken record over and over regarding ‘the sanctions against Gaza’ is nothing but an exaggeration in its attempts to cover its inability to manage the affairs of our residents in Gaza and the bankruptcy of the tyrannical coup project (apparently refers to 2007 Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip; see note below –Ed.), which treats the Gaza Strip as a hostage that Hamas uses for its wretched bargaining with the occupation. This is only in order to establish the coup’s rule and defend its leaders, while it is throwing the members of our people in Gaza into confrontations with the Israeli killing machine without providing them with even minimal means of defense, even though it boasts day and night with hollow words about ‘the weapons of the resistance,’ behind which it hides in order to defend its coup project.”

2007 Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip - Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah won the 2005 Palestinian Authority Presidential election. However, Hamas won the 2006 parliamentary elections in both the Gaza Strip and West Bank, with a majority of 74 out of 132 seats, to Fatah’s 45 seats. Fatah’s rule of the PA Presidency and Hamas’ rule of the PA government led to friction and eventually armed conflict between Hamas and Fatah. Hamas defeated Fatah militarily in the Gaza Strip in 2007, and since then Hamas rules in Gaza while the PA continues to rule the West Bank under Fatah.
