Headline: “Abu Al-Einein: ‘My call to arm the citizens reflects the position of the Fatah movement’”
     “[Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and] Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein stated: ‘The revocation of [my] VIP document (the holder of a Palestinian VIP travel document is entitled to international passage free of fees, and VIP treatment –Ed.) because of my recent call to arm the [Palestinian] citizens in view of the settlers’ arrogance, is an honor for me. This step means nothing when Palestinian blood is spilled.’
Abu Al-Einein added that his call to arm the [Palestinian] citizens in order to confront the settlers and the occupation is the [Fatah] movement’s position, even if ‘some’ do not like it.
He noted that this is not only his personal position, and stressed his insistence on this call… It should be noted that the occupation informed Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein of the [revocation] of his VIP document during his trip to Jordan today [Oct. 13, 2015], (Tuesday).”

     "The Fatah Central Committee held a meeting yesterday led by President [Mahmoud] Abbas, which began with the reading of the [Quranic Sura of] Al-Fatiha for the souls of our righteous Martyrs (Shahids)…
[Spokesman for PA Chairman Abbas and] Fatah Central Committee member and its official spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina... said that the Fatah Central Committee salutes the vast masses of our people who have risen up in order to protect their Al-Aqsa Mosque and the sites holy to Islam and Christianity in Jerusalem, and particularly those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) there. In addition, the committee saluted the masses of our people, who have come out against the terrorist settlers who are murdering [Palestinians] in all the refugee camps, cities, and villages of the brave West Bank. The committee emphasized that the Fatah movement is, as ever, at the head of the national project, and it unites today with the masses of our people in defending their holy sites, land, homes, lives and farms. In addition, he [Rudeina] called to maintain the character of the popular resistance as part of a comprehensive national strategy and non-deterioration to the Israeli cycle [of violence].”

In August 2013, Israel agreed to release 104 Palestinian terrorists from prison, which was the PA's precondition for renewing peace talks. The terrorists were released in stages. The first group of 26 was released on Aug. 13, 2013. The second group of 26 was released on Oct. 30, 2013. The third group of 26 was released on Dec. 30, 2013. The fourth group was scheduled to be released on March 29, 2014, but Israel delayed their release while negotiating the terms for continuation of the peace talks. When the PA submitted requests for admission as a state to several international bodies, Israel cancelled the release.

“Page in honor of Jerusalem and saluting those within it
The lions of Allah in Jerusalem are protecting it
Kiss their foreheads, and do not forget their hands”

“Picture of the Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi, 19 years old, resident of El-Bireh in the Ramallah district, who carried out the stabbing and shooting operation (i.e., terror attack) against settlers in occupied Jerusalem, which led to the death of two settlers and serious injury of additional settlers this evening [Oct. 3, 2015].
The last thing the Martyr wrote on his Facebook page, 21 hours before he carried out his heroic operation was: ‘According to what I see, the third Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel) has already broken out. What is happening in Jerusalem is what is happening to our holy sites and the place from where our Prophet [Muhammad] set out on his Night Journey (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), and what is happening to the women of the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is what is happening to our mothers and sisters, and I do not think the people should succumb to this humiliation.”

In March 1978, Dalal Mughrabi led a group of Fatah terrorists from Lebanon and hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway. Confronted by the Israeli army, the terrorists killed many of the passengers on the bus, in total 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded more than 70.
Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein posted the following on his Facebook page, glorifying the attack and the terrorists who carried it out:


Posted text: “On the early morning of Saturday, March 11, 1978, a [small] band [of Palestinian fighters] sailed from Deir Yassin on a cargo ship, which, it was decided, would transport them to a [point] 12 miles from the Palestinian coast, after which the band sailed on in a simple boat towards the coast south of Haifa.
Thus Dalal Mughrabi arrived on the soil of the beloved homeland, and her dream came true. She and her friends crossed the beach towards the Haifa-Jaffa highway, near the colony of Herzliya, which was near their destination. They succeeded in halting a large bus with 30 Israeli passengers, and forced it to turn toward Tel Aviv ... The enemy forces destroyed the bus together with its passengers, and admitted to having sustained 42 fatalities and 85 casualties, in addition to [the loss of] two buses, six taxis and a military jeep. As a result, 11 heroes, including Dalal Mughrabi, died as Martyrs, while two were wounded and captured.”

The PA daily printed Abbas' strong condemnation of the murder of two Japanese ‎hostages by Islamic State. PMW has documented that while Abbas issues strong ‎condemnations of terror attacks abroad, his condemnations of terror attacks against ‎Israelis have been less resolute. Following Abbas' ‎condemnation of the Jerusalem synagogue massacre (November 2014), officials in ‎Abbas' Fatah party openly stated that Abbas' condemnation was insincere and was ‎motivated solely by international pressure.‎
     ‎“President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his condolences yesterday to Japanese Prime ‎Minister Shinzo Abe for the murder of Japanese citizens Haruna Yukawa and Kenji ‎Goto by the forces of terrorism. In a condolence telegram, the President said: ‘In the ‎name of the State of Palestine and its people, and in my name personally, we hereby ‎express to your country our condemnation of and absolute opposition to the murder of ‎Japanese citizens Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto by the forces of terrorism. These ‎are abominable and cowardly acts contrary to all values and conventions, to human ‎morals and the heavenly religions.’”‎
