Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 9, 2017
Headline: “Beirut: A demonstration of solidarity with the members of our [Palestinian] people in the 1948 [territories]”
     “The Tyre branch of the Fatah Movement in southern Lebanon yesterday [Feb. 8, 2017] held a sit-in strike as a sign of solidarity with the members of our [Palestinian] people in the territories that were occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel) in front of the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross [in Beirut]…
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Rifat Shanaah, the Fatah secretary and leadership in Tyre, and Lebanese parties participated in the sit-in strike…
Shanaah said that American President Donald Trump’s threats to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem and to consider it the unified capital of Israel constitutes targeting of the Palestinian rights and a scandalous expression of racism.

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" 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Feb. 7, 2017
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).’”

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 council member condemns Egyptian cleric for refusing to publicly oppose US embassy move

Headline: “Zakarneh: Qardawi’s refusal to issue a statement regarding the transfer of the embassy to Jerusalem is incomprehensible”
     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member [and Chairman of the Union of Public Sector Employees] Bassam Zakarneh said that great scholar [Egyptian Cleric] Yusuf Qardawi’s refusal to issue a statement of opposition to American President Donald Trump’s decision to transfer the American embassy to Jerusalem is incomprehensible and deserving of condemnation. 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" 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Jan. 26, 2017
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.”
Fatah official: If the US embassy is moved, the PA will revoke its recognition of Israel, escalate “the peaceful popular resistance”

He revealed that the first of these steps is revoking the recognition of the State of Israel and demanding that it recognize the State of Palestine whose capital is Jerusalem, so that a state will recognize a state rather than an organization recognizing a state, alongside the strengthening of the internal Palestinian situation, and the escalation of the peaceful popular resistance (i.e., including violence)‎."

The terms "all means," "peaceful uprising,” and “popular uprising" are ‎often used by PA leaders to refer to events that include violence and deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as rock-throwing, stabbings and even shootings. See ‎Mahmoud Abbas' reference to murderous terror as "peaceful" during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), which included numerous stabbings, shootings and car ramming attacks in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded: http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437
