Fatah Central Committee member: Palestinians will return to violence when it is in "our people's interest"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - June 7, 2010

 
     “Dr. Nabil Shaath, member of the Fatah Central Committee… emphasized that ‘the Palestinian people has the right to defend itself, and it has the right to act in the way of the armed struggle. We have acted in this way for 100 years. Fatah led it [the armed struggle] for 23 years, and Hamas adopted it for 15 years. We are proud of all of our Shahids (Martyrs), and it is our right to return to the armed conflict whenever we view that as our people's interest.’"
