Headline: “Al-Aloul: The national cause is at the most crucial juncture of its history and reconciliation [between Fatah and Hamas] is a national necessity”
     “Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul stated that the national cause is at the most crucial juncture of its history, due to the occupation’s policy that is striving to steal additional territories and expel their inhabitants... Al-Aloul made this statement during an organizational meeting of the [Fatah] Movement’s frameworks north and west of the Ramallah and El-Bireh district. The meeting was held yesterday [Feb. 12, 2016] by Fatah’s Birzeit branch, with the participation of District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam... Al-Aloul added that the Fatah Movement will continue its political struggle and its struggle in the field, and will continue to defend national goals. He added that Fatah was the first to wage a mass confrontation during the current popular uprising on Sept. 29 [2015], and that it has led all the confrontations throughout the homeland, and that most of the Martyrs (Shahids) and injured came from within it. Likewise, it will carry its national and moral responsibility for the rest of our people’s sectors that were harmed as a result of the occupation, particularly the Martyrs’families, as was stressed by the meeting with the families of Jerusalem’s Martyrs,  recently held by President Mahmoud Abbas... Dr. Laila Ghannam praised, in an shortened speech, the pioneering role of the Fatah movement in all areas of the struggle and the services. Likewise, she stated that Fatah is the leader of the national project and the one who built the foundations of the Palestinian state, and that the Palestinian Authority is a national achievement, which cannot be separated from the project’s leader, the Fatah Movement... Ghannam praised Fatah’s role in leading the popular uprising since its beginning...”
