In an article published by the Palestinian Authority daily Al Quds, Fatah official Abbas Zaki called on the terror organization to “recruit tens of thousands Fatah activists to rise up against Israel.”
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is also a Fatah member.
According to Zaki, if Fatah recruits members and begins another uprising (intifada) against Israel, the other terror organizations will act similarly and Fatah will be returned to the leadership position it held in 1967, when it returned “the Arabs’ national hope” by means of “revolutionary acts.”
In his article, Zaki wrote, “The sword continues to be aimed, and the gun continues to precede the olive leaf.” He also called on Arab officials to continue their attempts to harm Israel in international courts.
“We need to do something concrete to integrate tens of thousands of Fatah activists into our civilian uprising against the settlers and the occupation’s forces,” Zaki wrote. “The numbers of these activists will immediately double, when other national and Islamist organizations join them, together with civilians of our great nation. This is because what binds us is the fight against Israel, and not the dialogue with Israel, which has already lost its efficiency in every way.”
Zaki also called on Fatah activists to “close off the roads leading to towns in Judea & Samaria, in order to push Israeli forces out of the Palestinian Authority’s territory.”
In fact, while Jews are not allowed to enter Arab villages—and would lose their lives if they did—Arabs often enter Jewish villages to murder residents and set fire to buildings (INN).
