Fatah official: Settlers must be forced out "by all available means"; "I long to see Israeli women crying" over their dead

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |
Fatah-run Awdah TV program Personal Conversation interviewed Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen
Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen: “I repeat, the settlers must be discouraged and forced to leave our lands, by all available means. We must not keep crying. No one likes to console people and attend the funerals of our Martyrs (Shahids), etc., but as a [member] of the Palestinian leadership I say that we are embarrassed by having to continue consoling [people]. I long to see Israeli women crying, as Palestinian women do.”

Note: PA leaders and officials have legitimized Palestinian violence by quoting UN resolution 3236 which "recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to regain its rights by all means." The PA interprets "all means" as including violence against civilians, but has chosen to ignore the continuation of the resolution which states that the use of "all means" should be "in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations..." The UN Charter prohibits targeting civilians, even in war. Chapter 1, Article 1, opens by saying that "international disputes" should be resolved "by peaceful means."
