Fatah promises more terror in 2023: “All types of resistance remain open to our people”

  • “Fatah adheres to the path of comprehensive popular resistance and all the legal options of struggle. It salutes the heroes of the popular resistance at all the points of resolve and confrontation with the Zionist tools of violence and killing, and strives together with the Palestinian struggle forces to escalate, organize, develop, and expand [the resistance] against all the occupation’s aggressive plots, with all types of resistance remaining open to our people
  • “Armed resistance” is “only solution” to “expel the occupation” says Fatah official
     
  • Fatah official calls for more terror: “We need… to strike in the Zionist depth”
  • The Fatah Revolutionary Council:
    Our resistance [is] an obligatory national duty for everyone, and… a necessary choice from which there is no return. Fatah will increase its participation in the popular resistance in all areas. It also calls to escalate this resistance with all legitimate means that are anchored for us in international law…
    The Fatah Revolutionary Council emphasizes our determination to resist the occupation and the settler colonialism, regardless of how great the sacrifices may be.

     
  • While many erroneously believe that Palestinian terror only resulted from the Israeli control of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem in 1967, in reality, Fatah is celebrating the 58th anniversary of its first terror attack in 1965

So what is PA Chairman Abbas’ Fatah Movement planning for 2023?

When Fatah took stock of 2022, the Movement stressed its leading role in terror against Israel, as Palestinian Media Watch showed.

For 2023 - not surprisingly – Fatah is planning more of the same terror.

In a statement on the 58th anniversary of the Launch of Fatah (Intilaqa) - counted from its first terror attack against Israel in 1965 - the Movement addressed Israel - “the criminal occupier” – vowing “not to lower the flag of struggle”:

“Thursday [Dec. 29, 2022], the Fatah Movement issued the… statement on the 58th anniversary of Fatah’s Intilaqa (i.e., the anniversary of “the Launch” of Fatah, counted from its first terror attack against Israel) and the outbreak of the modern Palestinian revolution: …‘We will remind the criminal occupier that a people and movement that gave birth to the rebels, the Al-Asifa forces (i.e., Fatah military unit), the RPG children, and the heroes of the stones will not lower the flag of struggle until achieving what Fatah was established for.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 30, 2022]

Fatah then exemplified the essence of said continued “struggle” by stressing its “pride” in Palestinian terrorists - the “heroic fighters” - and underlining that it will stick to violence and terror in the future. Using the term “comprehensive popular resistance,” which PMW has documented also refers to the use of violence and terror, Fatah promised to even “escalate, organize, develop, and expand” this. Twice in its statement, Fatah repeated another euphemism for terror, stating that the “resistance” should continue using “all the legal options of struggle” and that “all types of resistance remaining open to our people”:

Fatah expresses its great pride in its mighty Palestinian people and its heroic fighters who have sacrificed their blood to help their people against the criminal aggression towards our people…

Fatah adheres to the path of comprehensive popular resistance and all the legal options of struggle. It salutes the heroes of the popular resistance at all the points of resolve and confrontation with the Zionist tools of violence and killing, and strives together with the Palestinian struggle forces to escalate, organize, develop, and expand [the resistance] against all the occupation’s aggressive plots, with all types of resistance remaining open to our people.

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 30, 2022]

The terms “all means,” “all means of resistance,” “all forms,” “all types” are ‎used by PA leaders to include using all types of violence, including deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as stabbings and shootings, as well as throwing rocks and Molotov Cocktails.

PA leaders and officials have legitimized Palestinian violence by quoting UN resolution 3236 which "recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to regain its rights by all means." The PA interprets "all means" as including violence against civilians, but has chosen to ignore the continuation of the resolution which states that the use of "all means" should be "in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations..." Chapter 1, Article 1, opens by saying that "international disputes" should be resolved "by peaceful means." Since international law, in general, prohibits targeting civilians, it is outrageous to claim that resolution 3236 condones Palestinian terrorists attacking Israeli civilians. (see further below)
 

The terror organization The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) echoed this message, stating that the only way to deal with the new Israeli “fascist government” is “through confrontation” and by using “all forms of struggle”:

Headline: “The Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] called to provide the factors of power for thwarting the fascist government’s bloody plan

“The DFLP said: ‘Everyone must have a spirit of national realism and view the Israeli development as a great turning point, which it is only possible to deal with its consequences and dangers through a confrontation on the ground, through popular resistance that uses all forms of struggle (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror).’”

[Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 29, 2022]

Underlining Fatah’s terror intentions, one of Fatah’s anniversary posters included an image of a masked man holding a slingshot next to a rifle:

In the center is the number “58,” with 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” in the upper part of the “8,” and the Dome of the Rock in the lower part of the “8.” Inside the “5” is a masked man with the Dome of the Rock on his head using a slingshot. In front of the “58” is the PA map of “Palestine” with a large key symbolizing the Palestinian refugees’ “right of return.” The bit and blade of the key are black and resemble rifle sights, turning the key into a rifle with the PA map of “Palestine” behind it.

Following decades of PMW reports, Fatah’s adherence to violence and terror is not new or surprising and toward the end of 2022, Fatah officials even made explicit calls to “strike” Israel and for “armed resistance”:  

Fatah Revolutionary Council member Wafa Zakarneh: “The world needs to reexamine its relations with the Palestinian people, and this will only happen with the language of force. The world only understands the language of the strong. We as a Palestinian people, we own the right, and we need to be the strong ones, to strike in the Zionist depth (i.e., inside Israel) just as they are striking our sons and our heroes.”

[Official PA TV, Dec. 20, 2022]

Around the anniversary of the first Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel - the first Intifada (1987-1993) - in which approximately 200 Israelis were murdered, Fatah and Fatah officials made statements calling for more violence and terror.

Fatah official in the Jenin area Fida Turkeman stated that “armed resistance” is “only solution” to “expel the occupation:”

Fatah official in the Jenin area Fida Turkeman: “The Palestinian resistance that is being led by Fatah and the national forces will continue until the occupation and its collaborators are swept from our occupied lands… This occupation only knows one language and it is armed resistance against the Zionist occupation. We have nothing except armed resistance to expel the occupation and its collaborators from our occupied territories since 1948 and 1967. This is the only solution for resistance to the occupation: Armed resistance, until establishing our state and sweeping away the occupation and its collaborators from our occupied land.”

[Official PA TV, Dec. 8, 2022]

Fatah also vowed that terror will continue until Israel ceases to exist:

“Thursday [Dec. 8, 2022], the Fatah Movement emphasized that the resistance to the Israeli occupation will not stop except with [the occupation’s] removal from the land of Palestine.

Fatah said this in a statement issued by the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture on the 35th anniversary of the first popular Palestinian Intifada.

Fatah said that the Palestinian people will continue its popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) with the same determination until achieving victory and ending the presence of the criminal Israeli occupation in all its forms.

Fatah noted that the Palestinian people’s resistance to the racist Zionist expansion project has not stopped for more than 100 years and will not stop. It emphasized that the occupation’s fate is to end, and that its place is in the trash can of history like all the colonialist projects.

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 9, 2022
and Safa, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 8, 2022]

The Fatah Revolutionary Council made similar statements, calling for “escalation”:

Our resistance [is] an obligatory national duty for everyone, and… a necessary choice from which there is no return. Fatah will increase its participation in the popular resistance in all areas. It also calls to escalate this resistance with all legitimate means that are anchored for us in international law…

The Fatah Revolutionary Council emphasizes our determination to resist the occupation and the settler colonialism, regardless of how great the sacrifices may be, as this is our land and these are our rights… We will not abandon our prisoners, their families, and the families of our Martyrs, regardless of how great the sacrifices may be and how strong the pressures may grow.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 7, 2022]

DFLP has also called for a “comprehensive intifada” that would “rise to the level of a comprehensive national rebellion.” PLO Executive Committee member and DFLP Political Bureau member Tayseer Khaled emphasized:

What we need today is to tighten the ranks, end the [Hamas-Fatah] rift, restore the national unity and the unity of the Palestinian political regime, and also a comprehensive intifada against the occupation and preparation for a national rebellion that will include all the political and social forces.

[Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 8, 2022]

It is worth noting, that while many erroneously believe that Palestinian terror only resulted from the Israeli control of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem in 1967, as noted above, Fatah is celebrating the 58th anniversary of its first terror attack in 1965The date of the start of Fatah’s terror is consistent with its ideology, as PMW has overwhelmingly shown, to deny Israel’s very right to exist.

The following are longer excerpts of the statements cited above and additional social media posts by different branches of Fatah:

Headline: “Fatah on the anniversary of the Intilaqa: Continuing on the path of revolution and Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine”

“Yesterday, Thursday [Dec. 29, 2022], the Fatah Movement issued the Intilaqa statement on the 58th anniversary of Fatah’s Intilaqa (i.e., the anniversary of “the Launch” of Fatah, counted from its first terror attack against Israel) and the outbreak of the modern Palestinian revolution: …‘We will remind the criminal occupier that a people and movement that gave birth to the rebels, the Al-Asifa forces (i.e., Fatah military unit), the RPG children, and the heroes of the stones will not lower the flag of struggle until achieving what Fatah was established for…

Fatah expresses its great pride in its mighty Palestinian people andits heroic fighterswho have sacrificed their blood to help their people against the criminal aggression towards our people, our cities, our refugee camps, and our villages, and we view this revolutionary activity as a natural response to the occupation’s crimes and violence that are continuing against our people.

Fatah adheres to the path of comprehensive popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) and all the legal options of struggle. It salutes the heroes of the popular resistance at all the points of resolve and confrontation with the Zionist tools of violence and killing, and strives together with the Palestinian struggle forces to escalate, organize, develop, and expand [the resistance] against all the occupation’s aggressive plots, with all types of resistance remaining open to our people.

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 30, 2022]

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." At the time Abbas said this, 14 Israelis had already been murdered. http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437

Headline: “The Fatah Revolutionary Council: The occupation’s crimes are turning our resistance into an obligatory national duty for everyone”

“At the end of discussions of [its] 10th session, the Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council emphasized… that the rise in the pace of [Israeli]acts of murder and execution in cold blood is turning our resistance into a national duty to which everyone is obligated, and into a necessary choice from which there is no return…

The Revolutionary Council emphasized as follows:

  • The rise in the pace of [Israeli] acts of murder and execution in cold blood, the blocking of roads, the destruction of homes, the establishment of settlements and their expansion, and also the continued holding of the Martyrs’ bodies are turning our resistance into an obligatory national duty for everyone, and into a necessary choice from which there is no return. Fatah will increase its participation in the popular resistance in all areas (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror). It also calls to escalate this resistance with all legitimate means that are anchored for us in international law.The occupation and its government bear the consequences for the responses of self-defense that our people and its movement will carry out on the ground, and the international community must do that which is required of it and provide protection to our people.
  • The Israeli government that is currently being established is a government of settlers, which is placing the reins in the hands of gangs of murderers, and which proves that Israel has turned into an apartheid state. While resisting this occupation, our people is confronting the world with the need to respond to the plans and measures that the senior officials of the new Israeli government are announcing. [These plans and measures] will make the future explosion a certainty, as long as practical international measures are not implemented to deter the occupation and its government, which is dragging the region into a swamp of hate, blood, and violence…
  • We salute the Arab masses with honor and pride for their constant and principled stand alongside Palestine and its people at all times. We express honor and appreciation for the Arab masses and the masses of free people of the world who are present at the 2022 Qatar World Cup for their stand alongside Palestine, for them showing our national flag in a prominent, attention-grabbing, and  awe-inspiring way, and for boycotting the occupation’s media…
  • The Fatah Revolutionary Council emphasizes our determination to resist the occupation and the settler colonialism, regardless of how great the sacrifices may be, as this is our land and these are our rights… We will not abandon our prisoners, their families, and the families of our Martyrs, regardless of how great the sacrifices may be and how strong the pressures may grow.”

Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) - was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks in the 1960’s - 1980’s. These attacks, in which a total of 125 Israelis were murdered, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and murder of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.
