Fatah official: “We will pass [this conflict] on to our children and our children’s children”

Member of Fatah Central Committee Tawfiq Al-Tirawi was interviewed by Al-Manar TV (Hezbollah).
Tawfiq Al-Tirawi: “Our conflict with this occupation is a conflict that has continued since 1917, since the Balfour promise (i.e., Balfour Declaration). I’m telling you, and trust me, it’s been passed from generation to generation. We are a generation that received it [the conflict] from the Martyrs (Shahids), from Yasser Arafat, from Abu Iyad, from Abu Jihad, from Abu Sabri and others, the Martyrs. We will pass it on to our children and our children’s children, until Palestine is liberated. Dear brother, what is important is for there to be a conscious Palestinian will, able to struggle for another 100 years in order to free this land. There will be no circumstances in which will we allow Palestine to remain occupied. This is our land and our country.”

Note: The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
