Karake revealed that there are currently 6,000 prisoners in the occupation’s prisons, including prisoners who have served 35 years, such as Karim Younes (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 with accomplice) and Nael Barghouti (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 with accomplice), 19 who have served over a quarter century, and nine who have served over 20 years [and under 25 years] of imprisonment.

We give these allowances to the families of the Martyrs, and [the US and Israel can] call them whatever they want, but I call them Martyrs. [The US and Israel] said that this is support of terror. I said to them: “Let's establish a trilateral committee that will discuss the matter,” and Israel refused. I said to the Americans: “Let the two of us discuss the matter,” but this did not happen. I will not give up on this matter, and the Martyrs' families will continue to receive their full allowances.'

These statements were made during a reception he held yesterday [Aug. 15, 2017]...

However, the [Arab] residents of Jerusalem – women, men, children, and elderly – stood as one and told the occupation: ‘We will not agree to any change in the status quo at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.’ The [PA] leadership stood with them, supported their demands, and emphasized that the demands of the residents of Jerusalem are the demands of the entire Palestinian people, and the [metal detector] gates and cameras were removed, and Jerusalem and its mighty people won…
The president also said: ‘We adhere to peaceful popular resistance (‎i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror‎), because we know what the occupation wants, and we adhere to our policies in coordination with our people in Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and all places where the members of our people are found.’”

Fatah official explains Abbas condemned terror attack on Temple Mount “to protect Palestinian interests” – not out of sincerity 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 16, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Mattar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily, written in response to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ condemnation of a terror attack committed on the Temple Mount on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israeli border policemen were murdered

       “[PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas acted wisely and rationally when he expressed his opposition to acts of violence by any side, and particularly those that take place within houses of worship, because the Palestinian people’s interests are in need of his protection as the main one responsible for [protecting them]…
President Mahmoud Abbas was and is the bravest president and leader in the world. He does not worry that he will be condemned (i.e., by Palestinians) when the matter necessitates a clear and explicit position that will protect the people’s interests, because the leadership is interested in pushing back the threats and not drawing them close by taking impulsive positions."
