Fatah youth wing urges more violence and armed conflict with Israel, blesses “those who have sacrificed their blood”

“Following is a notice from Fatah’s [youth wing] Shabiba regarding the rage of Jerusalem and its intifada:

In the name of All Merciful Allah

Press release from Fatah’s Shabiba movement in the occupied West Bank, Palestine
Many of our fighting people in all arenas of the homeland and diaspora
Our young people who are rising up and who will win, Allah willing
We bless you with the blessing of Jerusalem, the return and those guarding the spark of resistance
The blessed intifada of our people has passed its first month, and its flame is still burning and burns the occupiers, and its flame burns vigorously in their glorious women and the young people of the homeland, led by members of Fatah’s Shabiba in all the arenas of activity and resistance. The Shabiba generation, which has waited a long time to fulfill the dream of a state and to get rid of the occupier, is charting the way to victory and the return with its uncompromising determination and its will which does the impossible. It is bringing back to national memory the heroic acts of the self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) in the battles of the Palestinian revolt in Karameh (battle in Karameh, Jordan, between Israeli army forces and Fatah terrorists in 1968 –Ed.), in Beirut (Fatah battles with Israel in Beirut during the first Lebanon war –Ed.), in the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) and in every arena in the homeland, and reemphasizes the resolve of the generation of the rock heroes in our people’s blessed intifada, who created with their pure blood the prettiest picture of Palestine, with a Canaanite face and Arab roots.
O our people:
In light of the sacrifices of the homeland’s young, which will be memorialized in the records of heroism and the Fedayeen, in light of the daily crimes being committed by the fascist occupier against the land and man, the most heinous of which have occurred in recent days against our people in the resolute Hebron district, and its continuous effort to distort facts and falsify history, and in light of the embarrassing official silence of the international community regarding the crimes befalling our people, we in the Fatah’s Shabiba movement in Palestine deliver these messages:

A blessing of honor and appreciation to those who have sacrificed their blood so that we will be able to live with dignity and pride, the Jerusalem Intifada’s Martyrs, and all the Martyrs of our modern Palestinian revolutions…

We hold the hands of the members of the Fatah’s Shabiba and its glorious [members] in all arenas of the conflict, and all the young of Palestine who are with them. We say to them – more resistance, more confrontations with the occupation, let us continue attacking, we have no option other than our popular resistance to the occupation.”
[Noqta (independent Palestinian news website), and official Facebook page of the Fatah Movement, Oct. 30, 2015]

The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - On March 21, 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the town of Karameh in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists had been launching attacks on Israel. Although Israel prevailed militarily, Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.

The First Lebanon War – The First Lebanon War began on June 6, 1982 following a long period of PLO attacks against Israel and after terrorists from the Abu-Nidal terror group attempted to assassinate Israeli Ambassador to the UK Shlomo Argov. The war began as a short-term operation called “Operation Peace for Galilee,” which aimed to destroy the militant infrastructure on Israel’s border with Lebanon. The war ended up lasting until 1985, when Israeli army forces withdrew from Lebanon. Israel suffered more than 1,200 fatalities in the war.
