Fatah official: US request to extradite Sbarro bombing accomplice constitutes "support for the racist Israeli policy" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 18, 2017
Headline: “Gaza: The Prisoners’ Committee condemns the American demands to turn over released prisoner Tamimi”
     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member and [Fatah] Movement General Commissioner for Prisoners’ Affairs in Gaza Tayseer Al-Bardini condemned the American request to Jordan to turn over released prisoner Ahlam Tamimi (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 15) on the pretext that her name appears on the terror list.
Al-Bardini said that the American request to re-arrest released prisoner and journalist Ahlam Tamimi is a continuation of the harming of the members of our people and of the support for the racist Israeli policy.
The Prisoners’ Committee of the National and Islamic Forces in Gaza also condemned the American demands to arrest and turn over released prisoner Al-Tamimi.”

Ahlam Tamimi was serving 16 life sentences for leading a suicide bomber to the Sbarro pizza shop in Jerusalem on Aug. 9, 2001. 15 people were murdered in the attack, 7 of them children, and 130 were injured. In October 2011, Tamimi was released as part of the Shalit prisoner exchange deal brokered between the Israeli government and Hamas. In that deal, Israel released 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.

PA daily prints op-ed comparing Trump to Hitler, Zionists to Nazis 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 7, 2017
Headline: "Trump's first days, 'the alternative facts'"
Op-ed by Ayman Al-Sayyad, first published on the Egyptian news website Shorouk
     "It could be that [US President Donald] Trump does not know the meaning of the word eugenics, and I do not think he has read [the writings of Francis] Galton (a pioneer in eugenics, wrote many books in the 19th century CE –Ed.), as people like him do not read at all. However, in all his positions regarding the other, immigrants, or women, it seems that he is faithful to the same destructive principles that have in the past led racists such as Hitler to almost destroy the world…
History shows us that racist ideas that espouse the superiority of one race over another, as Hitler believed, led to a world war whose victims numbered more than 60 million, and I repeat – 60 million…
Anyone who does not know what discrimination on the basis of origin or identity is can review [Trump’s] decision to ban [the entry of] 'all' citizens of the seven states the decision included, and I repeat 'all citizens,' not the terrorists or the extremists among them, and not even those about whom there are security concerns… Why? Because racists are illogical and they put all the rest, and I repeat – 'all the rest,' in one category. The Nazis who believed in the superiority of the Aryan race acted in this way, and the Zionists act this way when they think that they are ‘Allah's chosen people.'"

PLO official: Trump and Netanyahu are "two sides of the coin of racism"

Headline: “Al-Salehi: Trump and Netanyahu are two sides of the same coin”
     “Secretary-General of the Palestinian People’s Party (i.e., a PLO faction) Bassam Al-Salehi said that the new American administration led by [US President] Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu are two sides of the coin of racism and the occupation’s perpetuation.
Al-Salehi added in a statement that reached Ma’an that ‘The previous American administrations were biased and partners of the occupation, and strove to defend it in all of the international circles, alongside the military and material support that they provided it. However, the new American administration is also an ideological partner of the idea of occupation and racism that the Netanyahu government is implementing, and this presses the occupation towards greater expansion, aggression, and annexation, including ratification of what is called the Regularization Law that legalizes the theft of Palestinian lands.’ …
He called on the young Palestinians to broaden the campaign of creating contact, including through the social networks, with the forces opposing Trump and racism, and also to broaden the boycott campaign, and to organize activities in conjunction with their struggle with the forces opposing racism in a manner that will serve our people’s struggle against the occupation and racism.
He said: ‘This reality confirms, in a manner that leaves no room for argument, the failure of the policy that gambles on the US, and strengthens the need to immediately end the rift [between Fatah and Hamas], to strengthen the resolve of our people, and to build a unified front for the popular uprising (i.e., including violence).’”

PLO official: The US is conducting terror against the Palestinians

      “PLO Executive Committee member and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) political bureau member Tayseer Khaled said today, Thursday [Feb. 2, 2017], that American President Donald Trump’s administration is conducting terror against the Palestinian people. This was in light of the threats reported in political and media circles against the Palestinian side if it seeks to turn to the International Criminal Court in order to open a legal investigation regarding the settlement crimes in the Palestinian territories that were aggressively occupied in June 1967… He continued: ‘I say this in a clear response to the threat of the new American administration to stop the financial aid to the PA and close the PLO offices in Washington, and the hint regarding other sanctions if we decide to turn to the International Criminal Court in order to sue Israel for its crimes against our people, including the settlement crimes. These types of threats must strengthen our power, our toughness, and our adherence to our right to bring the war criminals to international trial, as we have nothing to lose other than the crumbs of aid that the new American administration wants to pay in order to be rid of its responsibility to defend our interests and our national rights.’”

Erekat explained in an interview with [official PA] radio The Voice of Palestine this morning [Jan. 31, 2017] that if the embassy is transferred to Jerusalem, the leadership will stand before fateful decisions, which will begin with revoking the PLO’s recognition of Israel, signing documents to join 16 international organizations, defining the connection with Israel in the political, economic, and security fields in accordance with the decisions of the [PLO] Central Council, and calling on the occupation authority to apply its full authority over the occupied land (i.e., to take over the responsibility for looking after the Palestinian residents of the West Bank from the PA -Ed.).”

Fatah-run Awdah TV program Pulse of the Homeland interviews people on the street about the transfer of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem
Official PA TV host: “A Palestinian blessing of peace to you, our viewers. In the previous episodes of Pulse of the Homeland we spoke about the danger of transferring the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Today we will repeat the question , declaring our complete rejection of the transfer of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The transfer of the American embassy does not create a danger for the Arabs only, but rather for all Muslims worldwide. Our viewers, we will again present the question to citizens, in order to see their viewpoint.”

Palestinian woman: “This is a new crime, a new Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), being carried out by the terror state (i.e., Israel ) - I call it in parentheses the ISIS state - and the US is the country that supports it and caused terror worldwide. We know and everyone knows that the US is the head of the snake and Israel is its spoiled [child ]. A decision like this means that Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel, and that of course [will only happen] over the dead bodies of all of the noble Palestinians… This will not pass and will not happen.”

This is because Jerusalem is the first direction of prayer and the third holiest sanctuary, and it concerns the entire Islamic and Christian nation …
Zakarneh added: ‘We do not want to attack any clergyman without basis, but what is currently demanded of great scholar Qardawi and of the Association of Muslim Scholars is to take a clear position, and all of the sources of authority in the world must act in an organized manner. We will not stop due to the freezing of the American decision, as the level of determination to exploit the opportunity to implement it is now clear.’
Zakarneh said: ‘Why did Qardawi take a position concerning what is happening in Syria? And concerning what happened in Iraq, Libya, and Egypt? Is Jerusalem not the destination of beloved [Prophet] Muhammad’s Night Journey, the first direction of prayer, and the third holiest sanctuary?’”
PLO official claims US embassy move "means that the US is Israel’s partner in committing a war crime"

Headline: “Abu Yusuf: Transferring the embassy is a dangerous step and American participation in war crimes”
     “Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Wasel Abu Yusuf emphasized that transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem is a very dangerous step that means that the US is Israel’s partner in committing a war crime and violating the international law and a principle that has existed since World War II, according to which it is forbidden to annex the territory of others by force.
Abu Yusuf said: ‘[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s positions prove on the ground that it is not possible to establish a Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem, and he is trying in this way to gain time.’ He noted that transferring the embassy will cause the spread of terror and the undermining of the stability in the region, in light of the strengthening of the settlement…
He also noted that Jerusalem is the occupied capital of the State of Palestine, and transferring the embassy to it contradicts the decisions of the international bodies, international law, and agreements that were sponsored by the US.
Abu Yusuf emphasized that this constitutes a serious position, as the Palestinian leadership has options, the most prominent of which is strengthening the resolve of our people and its refusal of dictates, and therefore it is necessary to act to expand the scope of the popular resistance in all of its forms (i.e., including violence) and to strengthen the international boycott of the occupation state.”

     “Masses of the Jericho and [Jordan] Valley district expressed their condemnations and opposition to the statements of American President Donald Trump regarding his intention to transfer the American embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem. This was during a protest rally with many participants that was held by the Fatah Movement yesterday [Jan. 22, 2017] in the center of Jericho, in the presence of District Governor of Jericho and the [Jordan] Valley Majed Al-Fatiani, and Fatah Secretary [in Hebron] Jihad Abu Al-Asal…

He added that Trump’s decision to transfer his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be the crossing of all red lines and will set the region on fire.

Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 23, 2017
Official PA TV News, telephone interview with Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah Central Committee member Saeb Erekat
Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah Central Committee member Saeb Erekat: "Transferring the embassy means only one thing: recognition of Israel's decision to annex occupied East Jerusalem. By doing this, the US is saying that the topic of Jerusalem has been resolved, and that Jerusalem - western and eastern – is the capital of the State of Israel. Therefore, the PLO's recognition of Israel cannot continue. The PLO cannot recognize Jerusalem, including East Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel. It is impossible. Therefore, the first step will be revoking the recognition [of Israel]. The second step will of course be revoking the signed agreements, and the decision of the [PLO] Central Council to break off the security and political ties and the negotiations with Israel will be implemented. We will request that Israel be suspended from its membership in the UN General Assembly. We will increase our efforts to receive a judicial ruling from the International Criminal Court to investigate senior Israeli officials regarding the settlements and the aggression against Gaza and the prisoners, in addition to other steps entailed by the transition from the stage of an authority to the stage of a state. In other words, we will have a government that is the PLO Executive Committee, and a Palestinian parliament that is the parliament of the State of Palestine, and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas] will also be the president of the State of Palestine, in addition to other steps, such as a call for an Arab and Islamic summit, a summit of the Non-Aligned Movement , and taking the appropriate steps in the Arab and Islamic world against this aggressive position."
Fatah official: Transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem will “constitute a great danger,” threatens to cut diplomatic ties with the US

Headline: “Fatah Central Committee member Dr. Nasser Al-Qidwa to Al-Quds: Transferring the embassy will cause the US to lose the role of mediator, and will bring about the end of relations with its people and the closing of the Palestinian Representative Office in Washington”

“Question: ‘Is it possible that [US President Donald] Trump will transfer the embassy? And what are the dangers inherent in a step such as this, if it is carried out?’

Answer: ‘Logically it can be submitted that it is impossible to transfer the embassy, but realistically it is possible, and this will constitute a great danger and will have wide-reaching and long-term consequences… The matters must be clarified before execution of the step, which requires the Palestinians to take the following positions: Transferring the embassy means canceling the American presence vis-à-vis the Palestinian side, and the Palestinian side must stop its relations with the official staff of the American embassy that is in Jerusalem illegally. The Palestinian political representation in Washington is also connected to this, as it is necessary to close the representative office there, and this must be done despite the need to continue the Palestinian willingness to hold dialogue with the US in other ways. However, these official channels need to come to an end.
It must be clear to the Palestinian officials that the US no longer constitutes a mediator, as it is not possible to cooperate with it because it has turned into a side [in the conflict], and therefore it is necessary to discuss other tools for implementing any future political process.’”
