Fatah Facebook video: The "triumphant brigades" carried out the second Intifada under Arafat's leadership 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, May 14, 2014
An Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades movie named "The Revolutionists of the Land"
Narrator: “The heroes Yasser Arafat, Abu Jihad, Abu Iyad, Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar, Kamal Nasser, Kamal Adwan, Abu Sabri, Abu Al-Hol, Abu Ali Shahin and others maintained the campaign against the Zionist enemy everywhere: the great operations (i.e., terror attacks) reached the shores of Tel Aviv [with] Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., bus hijacking in 1978, 37 killed) and [Dimona with] the Dimona operation (i.e., bus hijacking in 1988, 3 killed)...
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades were established in 2000 in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, by order of the late Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat, as Fatah’s military wing. The triumphant brigades began their military operations (i.e., terror attacks) during the second Intifada, the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005)...The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, with their mighty Nidal Al-Amoudi division, still embody the spirit of Fatah’s armed resistance, through their active and high-quality participation in the wars being initiated [ by Israel], one after the other, against the Gaza Strip. They are proving themselves a pure and stubborn rifle in the face of the Zionist enemy."

Fatah official claims active PA involvement in second Intifada 
Source: Jordanian TV, Dec. 27, 2013
Interview with Fatah Central Committee Member Azzam Al-Ahmad on Jordan TV’s Third Opinion program.
Al-Ahmad: “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?”
Al-Ahmad: “Certainly not. It is the PLO, not the [Palestinian] Authority, who is in charge of the negotiations… In ’82, they wanted to eliminate the Palestinian revolution. After ’82,
they didn’t [succeed], and the [armed] operations continued – albeit on a lower scale… We moved away from the border. The first Intifada (i.e. the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1988-1993) was born in ’87 and did wonders, and in its wake, in ’88, came the declaration of independence. (i.e., when Arafat declared Palestinian independence in Algeria).
Therefore, the struggle and the operations continued. We came to Oslo, even in Oslo, even after Oslo, [in] the ‘Prisoners’ Intifada’… Martyrs (Shahids) were killed. Operations did not stop. And because of Israel – the Tunnel Intifada, the excavations under the Al-Aqsa Mosque – the Palestinian people rose up and there were military confrontations. Afterwards, after the failure of the second Camp David [summit], (sic; should be Arafat, Ed.) told Clinton: ‘We will never give up Jerusalem and the right of the refugees. Before I sign, you’ll see my funeral in Palestine.’ Then came the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign, 2000-2005) in which Martyrs. So the resistance does not stop.”

PA official Nabil Shaath: Arafat knew that a second Intifada would put pressure on Israel 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 3, 2013
Part of the fourth episode of the 2011 Palestinian-produced documentary “Arafat” was broadcast on PA TV again in January 2013 as an introduction to a PA ceremony. The film states that at Camp David, Arafat was subjected to fourteen days of heavy American-Israeli pressure to abandon Palestinian claims for the Right of Return and for Jerusalem.
Part of the film shows Arafat speaking about Camp David:
    
“Everyone will understand that no one in the Palestinian people or in the entire Arab nation can bow down or surrender. Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) march to Jerusalem! Millions of Martyrs march to Jerusalem! Millions of Martyrs march to Jerusalem!”
Narrator: “The Camp David summit failed, and [Bill] Clinton held Arafat responsible for the failure. This was the preface to very serious events. [Then Israeli Prime Minister] Ariel Sharon violated the Noble Sanctuary (i.e., The Temple Mount), and the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) – known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada – began on Sept. 28, 2000 as a direct reaction to this [Sharon’s] violation. This was, however, also a reaction to years of determined Israeli efforts to subject the Palestinians and their national authority.
Nabil Shaath: “He (Arafat) saw that a repeat of the first Intifada, in new forms, would provide the necessary popular, international, and Arab pressure on Israel, since it was already impossible to continue denying our right to Jerusalem and the right of the refugees, the two principal issues.”
[The film relates the destruction of buildings in the PA’s Muqata'a headquarters, other than Arafat’s office building, that took place during the siege, and it then broadcasts his well-known statement]: ‘They want me prisoner, they want me exiled, they want me dead, but I say: Martyr, Martyr, Martyr!’”

     "Faris Ouda left home with a slingshot, having made a wreath with his picture, and writing: 'The Brave Shahid Faris Ouda'."
He said to his mother, "Don't worry, mother, Shahada (Martyrdom) is sweet.'"

Yasser Arafat, in a speech to children
:
     "We are saluting the spirit of our hero Shahid, Faris Ouda! Faris Ouda! Faris Ouda! We are proud of you [youth] who represent the steadfastness and the sacrifice of your companion, the hero Shahid, Faris Ouda! Oh, children of Palestine! The peers, friends, brothers and sisters of Faris Ouda."

Arafat: "This child, who is grasping the stone, facing the tank – is it not the greatest message to the world when that hero becomes a Shahid? We are proud of them."

Arafat’s bodyguard confirms: Arafat lied when he condemned killing civilians 
Source: BBC Arabic YouTube channel, Apr. 1, 2014
Arafat's bodyguard Muhammad Dayeh: I suckled love for Arafat from my mother's milk. We love Arafat passionately.
TV host: [Former Israeli PM Ariel] Sharon called Arafat a pathological liar, and many politicians who knew Arafat say he excelled at lying.
Bodyguard: [Our] religion permits lying in three cases: to settle between two people - religion allows you [to lie] in order to settle between two people.
TV host: For reconciliation.
Bodyguard: Someone whose wife isn't pretty, [can] say, 'You're the most beautiful woman in the world'; and the third [case] is in politics - you can lie.
TV host: Do you agree with this?
Bodyguard: Yes, yes.
TV host: He would lie in front of you.
Bodyguard: Yes. Arafat, yes. For example, whenever an operation (i.e., terror attack) was carried out in Tel Aviv, Arafat would go out and say [he condemned it] - of course, after pressure. First and foremost [from Egyptian] President Mubarak. He would call brother Arafat and tell him: "Brother Arafat, go and condemn it, they'll screw you." [Arafat] would tell him: "But Mr. President, I have Martyrs - they [Israel] destroyed us, they massacred us." [Mubarak] would tell him: "Brother Arafat, go and condemn [it]. They'll screw you." Brother Arafat would go and condemn it in his special way: I am against killing civilians - and that wasn't true.

Arafat planned that Oslo Accords would chase away Israelis 
Source: ANB TV, Feb. 16, 2006
Al-Quds al-Arabi Editor-in-Chief, Abd al-Bari 'Atwan:
     "After the Oslo Accords were signed, I went to Tunisia to visit him [Arafat] in July. I told him: 'We disagree. I don't support this agreement. It will harm us.'
[Arafat] told me: 'By Allah, I will drive them crazy. I will make these [Oslo] Accords a disaster for them [Israel]. It won't be in my lifetime, but you will see the Israelis run away from Palestine. Have a little patience.'
The Al-Aqsa Brigades [Fatah terrorist wing] were founded and armed by him [Arafat] as a reply, as a counterweight to the historic mistake of the Oslo Accords."

PLO did not amend PLO Charter which calls for Israel's destruction, as agreed to in the Oslo Accords 
Source: Private recording, Apr. 24, 1996
Historic vote of Palestinian National Council meant to fulfill PLO obligation under Oslo Accords to amend articles in PLO Charter calling for Israel's destruction:

Before vote:
Salim Za'noun, Chairman of meeting: "[Goal of vote is] an extension of 6 months… and then the Central Committee will discuss it [amending the articles]."
"I want to tell you before the voting begins that the judicial committee, when I attended it, was totally convinced, with a majority of 43 out of 44 members, that we must fulfill the commitment demanded of us [by Oslo Accords] at the lowest possible cost. Therefore, it was said, if we amend those articles [calling for Israel's destruction] whose amendment is demanded [by Oslo Accords] it will mean that we have paid a very high price. Putting forth a new proposal for the national charter is less damaging than the first thing [amending articles].
...
After the vote:
Marwan Kanafani, Arafat spokesman: "It's not an amendment. It is a license to start a new, to found a new resolution, a new charter."
