Abbas advisor “kiss[es] the hands” of children carrying out “resistance” (i.e., violence), but calls for more intense “resistance” that will “hurt” Israel and “make it pay dearly” 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Apr. 6, 2016
     Interview with Fatah Central Committee member and PA President Mahmoud Abbas' advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein
Donia Al-Watan interviewer: “Last question, in regard to the relations with Israel, regarding the popular uprising (reference to wave of Palestinian terror attacks which lasted October 2015 + March 2016 -Ed.) where is it leading? Where are we heading?”
Fatah Central Committee member and Abbas’ advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein:
“Where is the popular uprising? Is this popular uprising? Is this resistance? IS this popular resistance?”
Donia Al-Watan interviewer: “In what direction are we heading?”
Fatah Central Committee member and Abbas’ advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein: “These are acts of resistance [by] individuals. I kiss the hands of these children’s (i.e., terrorists who carried out attacks against Israel) families. However, can we say that this is resistance and that we have resistance? This is not resistance, not the resistance that we want. We want resistance that would hurt the occupation and demand of it a [heavy] price. When the resistance hurts the occupation and makes it pay [dearly], and the occupation pays a heavy price for its presence on Palestinian land, this will be the resistance we seek. As long as the resistance does not hurt and cost the occupation, it is not resistance. When the resistance hurts the Israeli enemy, it will be able to call itself resistance and take pride in it.”

Op-ed in PA daily: Palestinians should not let their children die and then celebrate them as heroes 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 16, 2016
Headline: "Do not take part in the execution of our children by Israel!"
Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Committee member and regular columnist for the official PA daily
      “The alignment of the Israeli occupation, the ISIS of the Jewish settlers, and the terror of the occupation state are the first and last to be responsible for the fact that our men, women, young, and children of both sexes are rushing to the battle field and toward the inevitable end. However, responsibility also rests with the political parties, factions, and local and Arab partisan media outlets, which diminish the terror and crimes of the occupation’s officers, soldiers, and settlers, ‘Israel’s ISIS’, and at the same time magnify the image of the Palestinian victim… If the young of my land think, they will discover the truth about those who are riding the wave. If they look deeply into the situation in the Arab world, they will see how the young always have served only as fuel and steps on the ladder for the rising of ‘professional politicians.’… Defending our children and young is a limitless national responsibility, and it should not be written in history that we sat there and looked at them bleeding until they died as Martyrs (Shahids), and then the factions competed among themselves to see who would succeed in adopting them [as theirs], and posters were printed and we walked in their funeral processions, and finally returned to our homes, concerned about the well-being of our children and sons, thinking and examining thousands of ways to protect them and distance them from the occupiers and settlers’ blood-lust cycle.”
