"[PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas]: The Israeli actions against our people will not cause us to renounce our just rights
President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas said that the Israeli actions against our people, including attacks, arrests, and killing, will not cause us to renounce our just rights and the establishment of our independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Abbas said this today, Sunday evening [March 5, 2017], at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah while receiving the family of Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Al-Jalad (i.e., terrorist, attempted stabbing) who died in the occupation's prisons, and the released prisoner, the injured child Osama Zaidat (i.e., terrorist, attempted stabbing)."

Girl:
"[Jerusalem] will yet return as long as on its land a Martyr dies each day
O mother, do not cry, as your son was not born to live
He was born to die as a Martyr, and thus defeat the occupiers
Oh! Palestine Oh! My beloved
You cry over your children, your women, your Martyrs
But no! We will not fall and will not kneel!
We will live for you, for the words: 'Palestine will be free'
We will die and not kneel
If our death is for you, Palestine, we will not hold back
Our hunger for death is like our hunger for bread
The death for you, Palestine, is admirable
Palestine, I will redeem you with my spirit, my money, my family, and all of my belongings
I will live and I will die while repeating the words: 'Palestine will be free'."
PA TV host: "Bravo! You are very talented, but I say again to all our friends: We need to live for Palestine. We need to love life and cling to it, because Palestine is beautiful and it will be even more beautiful with our presence in it. Our struggle must be in a nice manner by continuing to grow and thinking about our future and living in hope, because the freedom of Palestine will be realized through us, through our thoughts and our creativity."

A young Palestinian girl, Gharad Qassem, recites the following poem:
Gharad Qassem: “I am a Palestinian boy
Who are you, foreign boy? And from where did you come? And what is the stone that is in your hand?
I am a Muslim Arab, a free person forever
You do not have the right to ask
I did not come here, but rather you are the one that came
I was born here long ago,
Before you
Before you came to my land
I am a Muslim
My roots are in the depths of history
I am a Palestinian, my roots are in Safed, Ramallah, El-Bireh, and Gaza
I am a Palestinian, my roots are in Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, and Nablus
I am a Palestinian, my roots are in every grain of soil
A rock in my hand, my head and my heart –"

All of the blessings to the men of our people and to all those who took part in the blessed [first ] Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993) on the eternal anniversary, and all of the blessings to the blood of our Martyrs (Shahids), our wounded and our brave prisoners.”

The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - On March 21, 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the town of Karameh in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists had been launching attacks on Israel. Although Israel prevailed militarily, Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.

Abbas excuses young Palestinians’ stabbing attacks, saying “they have lost hope”

Headline: "The president: Our young people carry knives because they have lost hope"

"[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas called on Palestinian medical students in Venezuela to complete their studies…
During his meeting with 80 students and graduates, he said that the situation in Palestine is subjected to difficulties every day, but that every day there are [also] achievements. He added that every day there are Martyrs (Shahids) and children who carry knives, 'children who carry knives on their own incentive, and do not believe anyone who says there are bodies that are pushing them and inciting them; no, they have lost hope and therefore they go out with knives to carry out stabbing operations.'

Mahmoud Abbas… called for popular resistance by peaceful means, ‘as our hands are still outstretched to peace - but there is no peace without a state with East Jerusalem as its capital, and the right of return cannot be forgotten. I am a refugee and I returned to Ramallah, but I did not realize the right of return.'"

Official PA TV News, on Jenin District Governor Ibrahim Ramadan laying the cornerstone of new homes for the families of “Martyrs” (Shahids) and jailed terrorists in Qabatiya, located south of Jenin

Official PA TV newsreader: “Jenin [District] Governor Ibrahim Ramadan laid the cornerstone of the new residential buildings for the families of the three Martyrs (Shahids) and the prisoner from Qabatiya, at a ceremony honoring the families of the Martyrs and the outstanding students in the matriculation exams.”

Official PA TV reporter: “After the occupation’s bulldozers demolished the homes of the three Martyrs from Qabatiya south of Jenin (i.e., terrorists Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub, Ahmad Zakarneh, and Muhammad Kmeil), who died after they carried out the Damascus Gate operation (i.e., terrorist attack, 1 murdered) in occupied Jerusalem last February [2015], and [the home of] the prisoner that the occupation government is accusing of providing them with aid (i.e., Bilal Abu Zaid), the [PA] leadership ordered the building of new homes for their families.
It translated these efforts [into actions] by laying a cornerstone for these homes, and announced the start of their construction as [a sign of] loyalty to their sacrifice.”

Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul: “Since the beginning of the occupation, it is trying to do all it can to carry out crimes like these, to demolish homes in an attempt to distance the Palestinian people from the resistance to this occupation. However, despite all of these efforts, the Palestinian people will without a doubt resist for the defense of its country, its future, and its children.”

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.”
