“Ashraf Jum'a, a member of the Fatah parliamentary faction in the Legislative Council (Palestinian Parliament) … stated that political changes had come about following the events of June [2007] in Gaza [Hamas takeover] and following the war, and that Fatah was clear about its political approach, insofar as it announced at its Sixth Conference its adherence to the armed struggle for the liberation of Palestine, and has also adhered to the platform of President Mahmoud Abbas since 2005 – turning to a political process and to non-violent resistance."
