Fatah Official Jamal Muhaisen: We Should Withdraw Recognition of Israel, Continue Resistance

Speaking on the Palestinian Authority's official TV channel on August 15, Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen said that "we must convene the PNC in order to withdraw its recognition of the State of Israel, unless there is mutual recognition between the State of Israel and the State of Palestine." He said that "the organization must invest even greater efforts to ensure that the resistance continues, and not only in waves."

Jamal Muhaisen: "It is the political leadership that decides, at every stage, on the means of struggle that can bring results to our people. Given the current actions of the Israeli government, which is ignoring all the agreements and treaties and all the UN resolutions, and which insists on keeping the Palestinian people under occupation... We shall not accept this under any circumstances. Therefore, the organization must invest even greater efforts to ensure that the resistance continues, and not only in waves.

"In [Abbas'] meeting [with Fatah officials], we wanted to say to him: Move forward, despite all the challenges you face. We will not say, as the Jews said to Moses: 'Go, you and your Lord, and fight. Indeed, we are remaining right here.' We say to him: 'Keep on going. We support you. We are a nation of giants and our will is strong.' Our will is stronger than any weapon of the Israeli occupation, because it is based upon our historic right to this land and to our holy places.
