Fatah official calls on Palestinian people to escalate "popular resistance"

Headline: “Muhaisen: We are in an open battle with the setter occupation, and in a struggle against its racist laws”
     “Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen called on the Palestinian people to escalate the popular resistance (i.e., including violence) in order to deal with the Israeli occupation’s crimes and its racist acts and laws.
Muhaisen said in an interview with Radio Mawtini… in response to the ratification of a law that legalizes taking control of Palestinian lands by the Israeli Parliament: ‘We are in an open battle and in a confrontation with the settler occupation.’”

The terms "all means," "peaceful uprising,” and “popular resistance" are ‎often used by PA leaders to refer to events that include violence and deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as rock-throwing, stabbings and even shootings. See ‎Mahmoud Abbas' reference to murderous terror as "peaceful" during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), which included numerous stabbings, shootings and car ramming attacks in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded: http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437

Regularization Law - intended to validate and finalize registration of land in Judea and Samaria with the Civil Administration Authority for Government and Abandoned Property in cases where any private claimant makes claims to lands that were thought to be government land after communities have already been built on the land in good faith - i.e., without the knowledge that the land was privately-owned and with government support. The law will do so by transferring use of the land to the community in question providing a mechanism to compensate claimants to ownership of the land if their claims are validated. The law is intended to provide protection for Israeli towns in the West Bank established and built with Israeli government support from later claims of ownership by private individuals, similarly to existing laws in Israel in regard to property claims made for land on which government sanctioned communities have already been built. Currently, Israeli homes in a number of towns in the West Bank are vulnerableto claimants demanding their demolition, even if claims are only made long after families built their homes and are residing there.
Compensation: In cases of validated claims the Regularization Law expropriates the use of the land for the community's use until such a time as the final status of the area is determined, and states that the owner will be entitled to damages of 125 percent of the value of the land before the community was built, or alternative plots of land, according to his choice.
The law would not apply retroactively to cases already heard by the Israeli Supreme Court.
The law was ratified on Feb. 6, 2017.
