Fatah official says Palestinians are "using all available means": "rockets in Gaza, stones in the West Bank" and a "political campaign... in Cairo"

     ‎“Fatah held a rally in solidarity with Gaza, ‎under the slogan, ‘We are all with the ‎Resistance.’ The movement announced ‎that it supports the resistance in all its ‎forms, and rejects the ‘arrogance of the ‎occupation and the genocide of the ‎Palestinian people.’ Yesterday, after the ‎evening prayer, Fatah brought ‎approximately 3,000 citizens, including ‎activists and senior officials in its Central ‎Committee, to the center of Nablus… ‎Fatah delivered numerous messages ‎through Central Committee member Jamal ‎Muhaisen, expressing explicit and direct ‎support for the Palestinian resistance ‎wherever it may be. In addition, it saluted ‎the members of the resistance in the Gaza ‎Strip, especially the [Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam ‎Brigades, Hamas’ military wing. ‎
Muhaisen told Al-Jazeera Net at the end ‎of the rally that... the ‎nation is waging a campaign using all ‎available means – whether rockets in ‎Gaza, stones in the West Bank or ‎demonstrations in the Palestinian interior ‎‎(i.e., Israel) occupied in 1948, and in the ‎diaspora.‎‎
He emphasized that the political campaign ‎the Palestinians, united under the banner ‎of the legitimate demands and rights of ‎the Palestinian people, are waging in ‎Cairo is no less intense than the military ‎campaign… Muhaisen delivered ‎messages to the Israelis – the ‘new ‎Nazis’ – including implicit and explicit ‎threats. He said that neither the first ‎Intifada of 1987 (i.e., the first Palestinian ‎wave of violence against Israel, 1988-‎‎1993), nor the second Intifada of 2000 ‎‎(i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) had ‎resulted from an official decision, and that ‎this was [also] the case of the present ‎confrontations.”‎
