Abbas’ deputy in Fatah implicitly calls for more terror: We’ll resist the new Israeli fascist government “with all means”

Fatah Deputy Chairman Mahmoud Al-Aloul: The Israeli successive governments are all fascist… but these [in the new government] deny all of the Palestinian people’s rights completely, and clearly announce that they are fascists and that they are coming to commit crimes, murder, occupation of the land, and everything that is connected to this..We will resist it with all means… Also resistance on the ground. The resistance on the ground [must be] against this occupation on all levels… Our popular resistance must be more intense, have more adherence, and be more active.

[Fatah Commission of Information and Culture, Facebook page, Dec. 28, 2022]

The terms “all means,” “all means of resistance,” “all forms,” 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.

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
