Fatah spokesman: Shooting attack against Israeli teens was “heroic” and “a natural response and a natural right”
Fatah spokesman endorses terror, legitimizes use of “all means”: “It is the Palestinian people’s natural right to deter this [Israeli] terror and defend itself… with all available means”
Abbas calls for ”peaceful popular resistance” – another term used by PA leaders – including Abbas himself – to refer at times to violence and terror
The day after the shooting attack against 3 Israeli teens – one of whom has since died of his wounds – a Fatah official from the party’s Nablus branch called shooting an Israeli teen in the head a “heroic operation” and “a natural right.” Fatah Spokesman in the Nablus District, Kayed Mi’ari, said the attack was a justified response to Israeli “terror,” citing the PA’s repeated claim that Palestinians have a right to use “all means” to fight against Israel. Echoing other Fatah statements, Mi’ari also claimed the shooting attack was a reaction to Israel’s refusal to let the PA hold elections in Jerusalem as well as Israel’s alleged “Judaization” of Jerusalem.

Opinion: Just as hatred of the Jew is central to the religion of Islam, it is impossible to separate the land of promise from either the Jew or Muslim.
“ And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?”
Esau came in from hunting and was famished. Jacob had a pot of savory stew on the fire. Esau, a man of great appetites was starving, and his next words set the stage for eternal conflict that continues today in Jerusalem and to the final wars of this dispensation.
And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom (Hebrew red).
And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.
34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.
Just a short time later Jacob and his mother Rebecca plotted for Jacob to receive the blessing of the first born from his father Isaac, who was nearly blind and dying, even though God had intended for Jacob to receive it.
When Esau found out the blessing had been given, he let out a cry of despair that has reverberated through all of his offspring …
“Your dwelling will be
away from the earth’s richness,
away from the dew of heaven above.
40 You will live by the sword
and you will serve your brother.
But when you grow restless,
you will throw his yoke
from off your neck.” Genesis 27:39-20 NIV
Esau would live in a land less fertile than Palestine. Esau would sever his younger brother and be restless. In a sense Jacob and Rebecca won, but God would have given Jacob the land anyway.
The hatred Esau has for Jacob continues in violence.
