Fatah official following terror attack that killed 4 Israeli soldiers: Palestinian carry out attacks due to Israeli policies

Headline: “Fatah: Netanyahu is entrusting peace to the hands of a group of settlers who are occupying the land of the other by force”

Article on Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, posted on its website at 22.19 on Jan. 8, 2017 following truck ramming attack that murdered 4 Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem that same day. The statements of the Fatah official quoted in the article should be viewed as his response to the attack.
    
     “Head of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub said that occupation [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu is entrusting peace to the hands of a group of settlers who are occupying the land of the other by force.
The Fatah Movement said that the Israelis can put an end to this conflict that has been waged for years due to the situation of rage that the Palestinians are expressing in responses that lead them to one option, and that is the resistance to the occupation of their land, getting rid of the last occupation in the world, and achieving freedom and independence.
The movement emphasized that the Israelis can put an end to the conflict by forcing the Israeli extremism and terror government to withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories, which in its arrogance and bloodiness has caused the Palestinian people to feel that the prospect is closing on the peaceful and political solutions.
Al-Jaghoub said that the occupation prime minister helped sell the illusion of security to the Israelis, and he does not know how to do anything other than sell illusions to the Israeli society. It is illogical that the Israeli society and its secure lives will be dependent on placating a group of settlers who live by force of weapon on occupied Palestinian land, and the decision is in the hands of all of the Israelis, and they must say with full courage: ‘The time has come to end the occupation of Palestine.’
He concluded by saying: ‘The bullying state will not exist forever, and no occupation is without a price. The freedom of the Palestinian people and the establishment of its independent state are the only magic solution for ending the existing conflict and bringing security and peace.’”
