Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq [Tirawi]: “We negotiated with our heads held high. We fought using rocks, and we became Martyrs (Shahids). 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. We ask Allah to grant mercy on our Martyr and give forbearance and solace to his family and relatives. To the eternal Paradise, oh our heroic Martyr."

Abbas applauds following call for Jihad in Jerusalem 
Source: Official PA TV Live, Jan. 13, 2014
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.”
