Fatah: Will not abandon armed struggle as strategic choice
Official Palestinian Authority TV - July 29, 2009

 
Jibril Rajoub, member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council:
     “Fatah arose to realize the independent Palestinian national identity as necessary factor in the equation of the conflict, by means of struggle in all its forms, foremost among them the armed struggle. [This principle] will not fall at the [Sixth] Conference, and there is no force in the world that can cause it to fall. And I say to you, all Fatah members – this is a strategic choice that is not subject to geography, nor to blackmail, nor to the place and time of the gathering of the Conference."
