Recent postings on one of Fatah’s official Facebook pages reiterate the PA-Fatah strategy documented by Palestinian Media Watch of alternating between violence and diplomacy to put pressure on Israel to give in to the PA’s demands.

Under the headline “Fatah – All means of struggle until statehood” the administrator of the Fatah Facebook page posted three pictures showing different “means of struggle.” One picture represents diplomacy as a “means of struggle,” exemplified by a picture of PA Chairman Abbas speaking at the UN. The other two pictures represent the use of different kinds of violence as a “means of struggle.” One shows a man wearing an Arab headscarf throwing a stone, while the other shows a man holding a rifle.

Another Fatah posting also illustrated the use of violence as one of Fatah’s “means.” A picture showed a member of Fatah’s military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, taking aim with a rifle, accompanied by the following text:

“The Al-Aqsa [Martyrs’] Brigades: When they speak – they act; When they promise – they fulfill; and when they strike – they cause pain.”
