PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “It's not enough for us to say: ‘There are those carrying out Ribat’ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It's not enough for us to say: ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]’. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places.”

The president emphasized that the salaries (rawatib) of our Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded are a red line and that their rights must not be compromised, and also that from its first stone the settlement [enterprise] is illegal and opposes international law.”

Abbas: “The Martyrs and their families are sacred, [so are] the wounded and the prisoners. We must pay all of them”

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
"I say this to everyone – the salaries of our Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded are a red line. They [Israel] try by all means, and exert pressure by all means, and they continue to exert: 'It cannot be that you will pay.' And they’ll even deduct our money that’s in their hands. They’ll deduct from it the amount that we pay to the Martyrs. We have said that this is a red line and we will not allow [it]. From 1965 until now, this matter is sacred to us. The Martyrs and their families are sacred, [and so are] the wounded and the prisoners. We must pay all of them. If one penny remains in our hands it is for them and not for the living."

Abbas to award to terrorist serving 14 life sentences with "rank of major general as a sign of appreciation for his struggle and sacrifice for the homeland" 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Sept. 9, 2018

Text and picture posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: "[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas will award prisoner commander Nasser Awais (i.e., terrorist, murdered 14), who is sentenced to 14 life sentences, the rank of major general as a sign of appreciation for his struggle and sacrifice for the homeland. It should be noted that prisoner Awais from the Balata Refugee Camp east of Nablus, together with a group of his friends, established the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) in a direct appointment by [former PA] President Yasser Arafat…
Nasser Awais was the first to establish the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the homeland and was the secretary-general of the Brigades. The occupation forces expelled him and his name was included on the list of assassination targets until he was arrested in the Tubas district and sentenced to 14 life sentences for being behind many Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e. terror attacks).
All of the ranks are small for your stature and the stature of the giants of the struggle.
Blessings on this decision that serves the national path."

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “These [protest] rallies must continue until this [Jewish Nation-State] Law falls, and likewise the laws according to which the Israeli government intends to deduct the Palestinians’ money from the tax money, because of what we pay to the prisoners and to the families of the Martyrs (Shahids) and the wounded [should fall.] (refers to Israeli law deducting terror salaries from PA tax money –Ed.)
Israel considers them criminals, and [thinks] that we should leave them and their family members to suffer from hunger. And you know, gentlemen, that the first thing that [former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser] Arafat did after the firing of the first bullet (i.e., Fatah’s first terror attack in 1965 –Ed.) was to establish the institution to support the Martyrs of the Palestinian people and its prisoners…We will not allow [this] under any circumstance, and we will not allow Israel to do this. Even if we need to cut from our flesh, we will continue to give the support and aid to the members of our people... and if need be then there are steps that we will talk about in the future…
[And this is] at the same time that Israel [is taking care of] all the criminals, and prime among them the one [Yigal Amir] who murdered [former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak] Rabin. He is in prison, true, but they let him be at home, outside, three or four days a week (sic., Amir is not being let out of prison)... They married him off and let him have children (refers to his marriage while in prison and conjugal visits that led to the birth of his son –Ed.).

   “Strong criticism was heard from Palestinian factions and forces following announcements by PLO Executive Committee Secretary, (Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator) Saeb Erekat on the distribution of roles and departments among members of the [PLO] Executive Committee. The most noticeable criticism was directed at the decision of the head of the organization’s Executive Committee, [PA Chairman] Mahmoud Abbas, to take for himself the position of the one responsible for the Palestinian National Fund.... Clause 13 of the PLO regulations determines that ‘All members of the Executive Committee will be selected by the [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO). The head of the Executive Committee will be selected by the committee. The committee will be selected from within the National Council.’ … Deputy Secretary-General of the Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] Qais Abd Al-Karim told [the UK Arab news website] Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that ‘This is the first time that the head of the PLO Executive Committee is taking for himself the role of head of the Palestinian National Fund.’ He added: ‘The National Council did not make a decision regarding the Palestinian National Fund, and neither did the [PLO] Central Council, and it is not within the authority of the Executive Committee and its chairman to determine who will be head of the National Fund.’”
