Senior Fatah member: Violent resistance not possible now
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Apr. 18, 2010

 
Azzam Al-Ahmad, Fatah Central Committee member:
     "[Mocks Hamas for their claim that they are carrying out resistance:] Where? On Mars? Was the volcano in Iceland a result of their action? Where is the resistance that they are talking about? We speak honestly. We are now calling for (non-violent) popular resistance, and we are actively doing it. We are actively doing it because the circumstances right now do not allow us to do anything beyond this (i.e. violent resistance). If [Hamas] are referring to the armed struggle, let them update me and I'm ready to join if they're doing something, but I know that they're detaining anyone trying to shoot a single bullet from Gaza towards Israel."
