DFLP member praises Palestinian youth who 'resist' with "with bare chests, rocks, knives, Molotov cocktails and car rammings"

Headline: “Abu Tharifa at Fatah Launch rally in Rafah: We call on the Hamas movement to agree to the factions’ solution for the Rafah crossing crisis”
        “Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) leadership member Talal Abu Tharifa... gave a speech yesterday in the name of the national and Islamic forces during the rally for the 51st anniversary of the Fatah Launch (Intilaqa), in the presence of hundreds of the movement’s members in the district. While blessing the Fatah movement on the 51st anniversary of its Launch, Abu Tharifa emphasized that 2016 has to be the year of the uprising and the popular intifada and a year of national unity and an end to the disgusting rift [between Fatah and Hamas]...
He clarified that this year the anniversary of the Fatah Launch coincides with the intifada of the new generation young people in the streets of Jerusalem, the West Bank, Acre, and Sakhnin, and along the whole area of the Gaza Strip border, who respond to the fascism of the [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu government with bare chests, rocks, knives, Molotov cocktails and car rammings, on the way to the third popular intifada to expel the occupation and the settlement colonialism.
DFLP political bureau member Abu Tharifa emphasized that the popular intifada is a historic opportunity to translate last March’s [Fatah] Central Committee decisions [into action], and the popular uprising is the Palestinian people’s cry that it will no longer bear and accept the reality of settlement, siege, and occupation. Likewise, he called to redesign the relations with the occupation state by ceasing security cooperation with it, cancelling the Paris Agreement, which is destructive to the Palestinian economy, and releasing [itself] from the unjust Oslo [Accords’] restrictions...
Abu Tharifa demanded the supply of means for the continuity of the popular uprising, first the establishment of a national unified leadership of all the factions, forces and civil organizations in the West Bank and Gaza, and all levels, and the creation of a unified source of authority in occupied Jerusalem and a unified leadership for the uprising.”
