Celebrating the 54th anniversary of the Fatah movement, which is commemorated on the day of its first attempted terror attack against Israel, Abbas’ deputy chairman of Fatah, Mahmoud Al-Aloul, participated in a ceremony at which a black “coffin” decorated with photos of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump was burned in front of a large crowd.
A red “X” was painted over the faces of Netanyahu and Trump.
The text on the coffin read, “The deal of the century will not pass, to hell with it and good riddance,” referring to Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan.
At the event, Al-Aloul praised the terror attacks and the Palestinian waves of violence and terror against Israel (the intifadas) as “accomplishments” of Fatah’s “self-sacrificing fighters,” and “battles of honor,” which have “brought glory to the nation.”
“The Palestinian revolution … depended on our people’s will and was characterized by suffering, sacrifice, and pain,” he added.
He pointed out that Fatah “is loyal to the team of martyrs (shahids).”
“We in Fatah are not being lured away by anything—neither power nor government . . . . We will complete the path, without any shadow of a doubt, and we still see that our most important priority is to fight our primary enemy, the occupation and those who assist it,” he told the official P.A. daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida at the beginning of the month.
