     “[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his anger and his condemnation of the abominable crime committed against Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, who was murdered last Thursday [Oct. 30, 2014] by the killing and terror gangs of the Israeli occupation army.  In a telegram delivered yesterday [Nov. 2, 2014] by Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and District Governor Adnan Husseini to the Martyr’s relatives in the village of Silwan, he [Abbas] said that Martyr Mutaz rose to Heaven while defending our people’s rights and holy places. In addition, he condemned this barbaric act, which is added to the occupation’s crimes against our people since the Nakba (i.e., ‘the catastrophe’ Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), as well as the continuation of the historic injustice being committed against it wherever it is present.”

     “My message to the heroic Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, the Martyr of Dawn, the Martyr of Jerusalem: I have met with your father on your behalf but was not able to meet with your mother in order to kiss her hands and her forehead for feeding you courage and bravery from her breast, making you the revolutionary who has shortened our path to freedom. Mutaz, Allah has honored you with Martyrdom (Shahada), for which all men yearn. Your bullets were a beacon [illuminating] a path that had become dark, the light of which will continue to shine for years to come. Rest in peace, for you have conveyed the message, that this is the shortest way to the freedom of nations. Your life has been the essence of the Palestinian people’s long experience of suffering, for you were a revolutionary, thereafter a prisoner, and finally a Martyr (Shahid).”

PA TV reports on Abbas' speech ‎calling on Palestinians to “defend” Al-‎Aqsa Mosque “in any way whatsoever”‎ 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 17, 2014
Official PA TV broadcast quotes from PA ‎Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the ‎Second Fatah Congress under the ‎following headlines that were visible on ‎the screen:‎
     ‎“President [Mahmoud Abbas] calls on his ‎people to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque and ‎prevent the settlers from entering it in any ‎way whatsoever.”‎

The following is an excerpt of Abbas’ ‎speech referred to on PA TV:

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.”

Abbas criticizes Hamas for taking responsibility for kidnapping the 3 Israeli teens 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 28, 2014
Official PA TV interviewed Mahmoud Abbas about the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens in June 2014:
     “After the kidnapping was carried out we met with punishments we had never known before, for no reason. The destruction, the murders – and the most famous murder was that of Muhammad Abu Khdeir and other children.  Alright, who carried out [the kidnapping]? Israel says Hamas. We say we have no proof [of this] whatsoever, we have no proof. We tell them [Israel]: ‘...We have no information [proving] that Hamas did this.’ I asked [Hamas officials]: ‘Did you carry out [the kidnapping]?’ They said no. I said: ‘Great. In that case, it’s not them!’ Then, the honorable gentleman Saleh Al-Arouri surprised [us] in a speech. He said: ‘We kidnapped them to start a revolution, an Intifada, in the West Bank…’ Alright, I was surprised. I was informed that Al-Arouri said this. I told them : ‘My friends, my information from the most senior official, from the head of the [Hamas] Political Bureau [Khaled Mashaal] [was] that they [Hamas] had nothing to do with this.’ But then Khaled Mashaal came and said they had carried out [the kidnapping], but not following a top-down decision (i.e., not a decision made by Hamas leadership). An operation of this kind not carried out according to a top-down decision? It would have been better for you [Mashaal] to keep quiet, or for your man [Al-Arouri] to keep quiet.”

Note: On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists while they were hitchhiking. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They were shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, Palestinian teen Muhammad Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and murdered in Jerusalem in a revenge attack by Israeli extremists.
Abbas quotes Quranic verse encouraging ‎violent resistance in speech 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 28, 2014
     ‎“[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas has ‎addressed our people several times since ‎the start of the aggression against the ‎Gaza Strip (i.e., 2014 Gaza war). Each ‎time, he added something new to the ‎chain of events and their rapid ‎development in a way that served the ‎Palestinian cause – in particular, the Gaza ‎Strip, which sacrificed Martyrs (Shahids) ‎on a daily basis.‎ In his speech two days ago [Aug. 26, ‎‎2014], the President announced the end ‎of the aggression against the Gaza Strip ‎based on the Egyptian initiative, to which ‎he has supported all along. Last month, ‎he said other things suggesting that he ‎opposes the occupation and supports the ‎resistance of our people. Many ‎considered the fact that he concluded ‎his speech with the Quranic verse, ‎‎‘Permission [to fight] has been given to ‎those who are being fought, because ‎they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is ‎competent to give them victory.’ (Sura ‎‎22:39, trans. Sahih International) as a ‎clear and open [show of] support for the ‎resistance, and a call to [manifest] anger ‎against the occupation. This was ‎realized on the ground in the West ‎Bank, which answered the President’s ‎call and set out to confront the ‎occupation.”‎
PA leadership “expresses pride” in riots in Jerusalem 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 17, 2014
     “The Palestinian leadership emphasized that the just demands presented by our delegation - specifically, the lifting of the blockade [on the Gaza Strip], the opening of the [border] crossings and freedom of movement - are inseparable from the larger national goal: Ending the occupation in all the occupied Palestinian territories in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza, and [allowing] the Palestinian state to assume full sovereignty over its land, water and air.
This [statement was made] in an announcement published by the leadership after a meeting held last night [Aug. 16, 2014], [and] presided over by President Mahmoud Abbas in the presidential residence in Ramallah, to discuss the results of the negotiations for establishing quiet, which are taking place in Cairo…
It [the leadership] called for the continuation of the national campaign to boycott Israeli products and for its expansion on an international level, in order to settle the score with Israel for the war crimes committed by its racist government against the children, women and all members of our nation…
The leadership expressed pride ‘in the all-inclusive popular uprising of our great nation throughout the homeland and in its heart, Jerusalem… against the criminal aggression (i.e., Operation Protective Edge).’”

Note: This statement was made while Hamas was firing thousands of rockets at Israel and as Israel was responding with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.
Abbas "gave the sign to let the West Bank street loose" 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, July 25, 2014
Op-ed by Muhannad Ubeid
Headline: "
A single Quranic verse ignited the West Bank"
     "[Mahmoud] Abbas realized that by staying outside the arena, he would be excluded from the political game. He also knows that the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank is ready for an explosion. Therefore, he gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose. Isn't the Quranic verse he quoted during his last speech, "Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory" [Sura 22:39, trans. Sahih International] a clear sign to loosen the reins on the street?
Furthermore, what is the meaning of Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi's statement regarding the West Bank's need to enter into an armed Intifada? It's been a long time since we heard a member of the Fatah leadership talk about weapons. The West Bank's entrance into the line of confrontation will reshuffle the cards, and the action is still just beginning. Israel will not agree to a third Intifada, and this is precisely what Abbas wants. He wants Israel to knock on his door in order to find a solution."
