The all belonged to the founding generation of Fatah), and the prince of Jerusalem, Faisal Husseini.

This is Fatah; it is the mother of all, includes all, and we mark today the anniversary of the Martyrs of the Palestinian revolution, without exception. We in the Jerusalem branch of Fatah, the Palestinian National Liberation Movement, renew the promise and the oath of loyalty to Al-Aqsa; we renew the promise and the oath of loyalty to Silwan, to Issawiya, to the Mount of Olives, to [Jabel] Mukabber, to Sur Baher, and [Beit] Safafa. We also renew the promise to Hebron, to Jenin, and to Nablus. We renew the promise to Haifa, Jaffa, and Nazareth. Palestine, and all of Palestine, will remain alive in our hearts. We will continue to act and to be people of Ribat (religious conflict/war defending Islamic land) upon this land, until Allah implements his word… Thus, according to the Quran’s verdict, according to Allah’s verdict, Israel is destined to vanish, Allah willing.'"
