Fatah spokesman: “We of Fatah… haven’t laid down our arms”

PA TV broadcast a torch lighting ceremony in Ramallah to mark the 48th anniversary of the founding of Fatah. At the ceremony Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf said: 
     “We of Fatah still define ourselves as a national liberation movement. We haven't laid down our arms, and we have not descended from Mount Uhud.”

Note: According to Islamic tradition, Mount Uhud was the scene of a battle where Muslims were denied victory because Muslim archers left their positions prematurely and descended Mount Uhud to gather spoils.
