Abbas advisor calls for Palestinians to arm themselves “and confront the settlers,” saying this is Fatah’s official position

Headline: “Abu Al-Einein: ‘My call to arm the citizens reflects the position of the Fatah movement’”
“[Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and] Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein stated: ‘The revocation of [my] VIP document (the holder of a Palestinian VIP travel document is entitled to international passage free of fees, and VIP treatment –Ed.) because of my recent call to arm the [Palestinian] citizens in view of the settlers’ arrogance, is an honor for me. This step means nothing when Palestinian blood is spilled.’
Abu Al-Einein added that his call to arm the [Palestinian] citizens in order to confront the settlers and the occupation is the [Fatah] movement’s position, even if ‘some’ do not like it.
He noted that this is not only his personal position, and stressed his insistence on this call… It should be noted that the occupation informed Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein of the [revocation] of his VIP document during his trip to Jordan today [Oct. 13, 2015], (Tuesday).”
