Rajoub : "The Sixth Fatah Conference affirmed… the armed struggle"
Jibril Rajoub, Deputy-Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee:
"At the [Sixth Fatah] Conference, we affirmed the struggle in all its forms, including resistance and the armed struggle...
We agreed on it unanimously about both the [Fatah] movement’s aims and its principles, including the resistance and the armed struggle. The [armed] struggle, as we see it, is not an aim; it is not a hike or a pleasure cruise.
[Armed] resistance has circumstances, considerations, and factors – whether national, regional or international. It must cause pain to the occupation; it must be connected to a political platform."
