BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip will not be established within the coming 20 years, a member of the Central Committee of the Palestinian Authority's ruling party Fatah said on Saturday.

Tawfiq Tirawi told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen satellite channel on Friday that "It is not possible under any circumstances that a Palestinian state will be established in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip 20 years from now."

"Those who believe a state can be established are misled, as negotiations will bring nothing," he added.

Tirawi urged the Palestinians to resume resistance in all aspects as a result.

"We have to resume action, as action can change many things. I mean resistance in all its aspects, but under a united Palestinian plan agreed by all factions including PLO factions and factions outside the PLO."

The Fatah official highlighted that his movement had not dropped resistance as a choice including armed resistance. "That was reiterated in the movement’s sixth congress held in Bethlehem."

The framework agreement which US secretary of state John Kerry is promoting will be refused by the Palestinians, added Tirawi.

Peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians were relaunched in July under the auspices of the US after nearly three years of impasse.

Israel's government has announced the construction of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements since peace talks began.

Fatah hasnt renounced terrorism? He's right although they swore they gave it up, just as when Force 17 was folded into Tanzim, just as when Tanzim was folded into al Aqsa Martyrs and just as al Aqsa Martrs swore they had disbanded in 2008, again in 2011 and today train openly in Ramallah. Nobody can believe a word said by the stinkingly corrupt PA.

Palestinians bear a significant portion of the blame, due to "pie in the sky" expectations, pre-conditions, hubris and delays. Unless the Palestinians negotiate seriously and pragmatically to achieve a peace no one will like but all can accept, the current situation will last indefinitely.

So, Fatah really wants war. The truth comes out.

#1 Do you have anything to back up your claims or are you just barking up a tree again? For the record, just throwing out random names of Palestinian groups doesn't give the impression that you know what you are talking about. Clearly you do not.

5 ) Armed Resistance / is LEGAL
