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.”

  1. James Bloyd says:

    The question of which side of the conflict are the violent aggressors is not even a question

  2. Cody Flecker says:

    Israel has brought this cancer upon itself. Only Israel can eradicate the cancer, no one else. Israel cannot have a Fifth Column living side by side with Israel. One day the Jews will wake up and see the light. Maybe it will take more kidnappings, and murders for the average Israeli to see that their Government is a waste of good time. Until that time, more Israelis will die or be maimed by these vultures.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Israel needs Israeli warriors with ferous dogs to strike the terrorists, so the terrorists will not have human shields, they are scared to dogs, so they will try to flee, and than this warriors can kill the terrorists without human shields.
