Glorifying terror and violence
PLO Executive Committee defends Palestinian National Fund; denies link to terror funding 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 31, 2017
“The PLO Executive Committee convened last night [May 30, 2017], led by [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas…
The Executive Committee condemned the maneuvering and tricks of [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu and his government’s top officials, and their desperate attempts to divert attention from their aggressive and expansionist policies that are contrary to peace, and [their attempts] to fabricate crises with the Palestinian side in order to avoid the obligations of a political solution to the conflict. One time this is in the name of the Jewish state, and another time it is through an attempt to turn the [PLO] Palestinian National Fund into a terror organization (see note below –Ed.). The [PLO Executive] Committee emphasized, in a manner that leaves no room for doubt, that the Palestinian National Fund is a red line and a PLO national institution, and that it will continue in its national and humanitarian role.”

     “[PA] Minister of Justice Ali Abu Diyak emphasized that the decision of the Fatah Movement leadership – led by [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas – to appoint the veteran prisoner Karim Younes (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1) to the Fatah Central Committee is the clearest and severest response to the campaign being led by Israel to accuse the prisoners, Martyrs (Shahids), and the Palestinian struggle of terror… He noted that the prisoners and Martyrs are the spearhead of the freedom fighters, symbols of our legitimate national struggle, and conscience of the Palestinian people, and that they are victims of organized terror and state terror being implemented by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people. He also said that the solution to the Palestinian problem, the end of the conflict, and the establishment of a just and honorable peace will not be achieved by defining the legitimate Palestinian struggle against the occupation as a crime, but rather by ending the occupation.”
