Fatah discusses “strengthening popular resistance” terror

Official PA TV News


Official PA TV newsreader: “The Fatah Revolutionary Council held a meeting with the participation of the members who are in the homeland. The meeting was held in order to monitor [the execution of] the decisions of the council’s eighth session… and to discuss Fatah’s internal affairs and the strengthening of the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) in all the areas of friction with the occupation.”




The Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine” is shown.


The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded in stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks. Abbas said: "We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is."
