RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Responding to a Twitter comment by the spokesman of Israel's prime minister, Fatah said in a statement that the movement would “continue to resist your occupation and the presence of your soldiers and settlers on our land.”

The statement came in response to Ofer Gendelman's criticism of the Fatah movement for posting a profile photo on its Facebook page which boasts armed fighters with keffiyehs covering their faces.

“If you accept the two-state solution, then take your settlers and troops out of our land so we can live in peace,” the Fatah statement added.

Gendelman wrote on his Twitter account, “This pic glorifying terror was posted by Pres Abbas's Fatah on its FB page as #SecKerry arrives to promote peace.”

The Fatah statement added that “the Israelis glory themselves of their gangs which committed massacres against the Palestinians in Deir Yassin and Qibyeh which, they claimed, was part of a liberation war, and later in Sabra, Shatila, Jenin, Nablus and Gaza.

“Their books are full of glorifications of the Zionist leaders who committed atrocities against the Palestinians in the past and the present.”

When Fatah since 1968 chose to have a civil democratic state for Muslims, Christians and Jews, it was faced with “racist, chauvinistic ideas and opposition by the right wing in Israel,” the statement added.

Well, Fatah - if you sign on the 2-state solution peace treaty then the troops will leave, but not before you sign. And, of course, despite what Fatah may have said in 1968, the reality is that Fatah leaders repeatedly say in public that no Jews will be allowe in apartheid Palestine.

to brian: nor the israeli state want a 2 state solution nor it want to pullout from 1967 anected borders. any UN resolution was made by the UN since day one of the UN (belonging the cause /fate of palestine) was just ignored by the state of israel.

Very nice picture Fatah. Will it be available to purchase in poster format? I do hope President Abbas gives Mr Kerry a signed copy as a 'keepsake'. I wouldn't really say it 'glorified terror' though, the pictures on the US video games are more realistic than yours (sorry). The 49th anniversary 'You Tube' clip was very enjoyable, were the AK47's real or just props? Lovely to see all ages taking part, so inspiring.

#2, why should Israel pull out of it's historical lands? Its not as if the "West Bank" actually it's called Judea and Samaria, and it always had a jewish population until 1948, when those who were there were killed or driven out. It's only in 1967 that they returned to their anscestral lands which were taken over by arab armies, but then re taken control by Israel. Bottom line is, if Arabs can live in Israel, then Jews should be able to live in the West Bank

I guess it's terror when Palestinians have arms but righteous self-defense when Israelis take them up. LOL
