Glorifying terror and violence

Abbas quotes Quranic verse encouraging ‎violent resistance in speech 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 28, 2014
     ‎“[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas has ‎addressed our people several times since ‎the start of the aggression against the ‎Gaza Strip (i.e., 2014 Gaza war). Each ‎time, he added something new to the ‎chain of events and their rapid ‎development in a way that served the ‎Palestinian cause – in particular, the Gaza ‎Strip, which sacrificed Martyrs (Shahids) ‎on a daily basis.‎ In his speech two days ago [Aug. 26, ‎‎2014], the President announced the end ‎of the aggression against the Gaza Strip ‎based on the Egyptian initiative, to which ‎he has supported all along. Last month, ‎he said other things suggesting that he ‎opposes the occupation and supports the ‎resistance of our people. Many ‎considered the fact that he concluded ‎his speech with the Quranic verse, ‎‎‘Permission [to fight] has been given to ‎those who are being fought, because ‎they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is ‎competent to give them victory.’ (Sura ‎‎22:39, trans. Sahih International) as a ‎clear and open [show of] support for the ‎resistance, and a call to [manifest] anger ‎against the occupation. This was ‎realized on the ground in the West ‎Bank, which answered the President’s ‎call and set out to confront the ‎occupation.”‎
Abbas "gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose"

Op-ed by Muhannad Ubeid
Headline: "
A single Quranic verse ignited the West Bank"
     "[Mahmoud] Abbas realized that by staying outside the arena, he would be excluded from the political game. He also knows that the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank is ready for an explosion. Therefore, he gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose. Isn't the Quranic verse he quoted during his last speech, "Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory" [Sura 22:39, trans. Sahih International] a clear sign to loosen the reins on the street?
Furthermore, what is the meaning of Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi's statement regarding the West Bank's need to enter into an armed Intifada? It's been a long time since we heard a member of the Fatah leadership talk about weapons. The West Bank's entrance into the line of confrontation will reshuffle the cards, and the action is still just beginning. Israel will not agree to a third Intifada, and this is precisely what Abbas wants. He wants Israel to knock on his door in order to find a solution."

We fought using rifles, and we became prisoners, heroes. Some of them are [out there] among you. Heroes who made this movement [Fatah] and all of us proud. Some of you are still waiting for freedom. Martyrs who ascended to Heaven, whom we remember with admiration…
And we know that the results of negotiations are a big, round zero. Nonetheless, we tried. And we say with heads held high: ‘No!’ Whoever from among the Zionists who thinks that Beit El and all the settlements are Israeli land, is deluded. Haifa, Jaffa, and Acre will remain Palestinian forever, and they will be nothing other than Palestinian.”

Some of them have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting; and they have not altered in the least.' [Quran, Sura 33:23, Pickthall translation] With the most exalted expressions of honor and pride and with symbols of Jihad and resistance, we part with piety from our heroic Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Mahmoud Mubarak from the resolute Jalazone refugee camp, who ascended to Heaven as a Martyr in the battlefield while challenging the Zionist enemy.

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “There is a message we must convey to those who kidnapped the Yarmouk [Palestinian] refugee camp [in Syria] with baseless false slogans, pretexts, and excuses. We say to them: ‘The venue for resistance and Jihad is not the Yarmouk refugee camp. Whoever wants resistance, whoever wants Jihad, the direction for Jihad is well-known and clear. Everyone knows it. I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know where Jihad is supposed to take place. [Applause from the audience] I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know to where we should direct efforts or where to concentrate the masses. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know this. Those who send young people to Syria or elsewhere to die for a misdirected cause must stop and understand that Jerusalem is still waiting. Jerusalem is the direction, Jerusalem is the address. [Abbas and audience applaud.] A compass that does not point to Jerusalem, Muhammad has nothing to do with it. Put an end to your ignorance, and recognize that you [those fighting in Syria] are nothing more than small tools in a game [controlled by] malicious hands that are running a filthy game to crush the Ummah (Islamic Nation) and diminish it, and deflect the compass, away from its true direction.”
