Fatah depicts unity with Hamas as unity between two terror organizations
"Men's shoulders were created only to carry rifles.
Either we will be mighty above the earth,
or we will be bones in it"
"We will not surrender;
we will win or die"

On Facebook, Fatah welcomes the unity with terror organization Hamas, depicting it as a unity between two military organizations. On Fatah's "Main Page" a picture shows two masked men carrying machine guns. One wears the yellow headband of Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, while the other wears the green headband of Hamas' military wing, the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. Both organizations are listed as terror organizations in the US, the EU and in other countries. The administrator of the page wrote, "Yes to unity and to ending the rift," while the text on the photo proclaims:
"Men's shoulders were created only to carry rifles. Either we will be mighty above the earth, or we will be bones in it."

we will win or die."

Promoting Palestinian unity, Fatah also posted the following poem, presenting terrorists from different terrorist organizations who were responsible for the deaths of numerous Israelis, as belonging to one united group:
"Not a member of Hamas,
not of Fatah,
not of the [Popular] Front [for the Liberation of Palestine]
not of the [Islamic] Jihad:
For in the enemies' eyes,
we are all 'Anwar' (stereotypical Arab name)
And our face is the face of the brown-skinned Fatah man
The face of Yasser [Arafat] (Fatah),
the face of Ahmed [Yassin] (Hamas),
and the face of [Fathi] Shaqaqi (Islamic Jihad) who never wavered,
and of Abu Ali Mustafa (PFLP), the red rebel."
[Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page", April 23, 2014]
Sheikh Ahmed Yassin - Founder and former head of the terrorist organization Hamas. The Hamas movement is responsible for numerous terror attacks and the deaths of hundreds of Israeli civilians.
Fathi Shaqaqi - Founder of the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad, which has carried out numerous terrorist attacks, killing hundreds of Israeli civilians.
Abu Ali Mustafa - Secretary-General of the terror organization "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" (PFLP). The PFLP, which rejected the Oslo Accords (1993), has planned and carried out numerous terror attacks against Israeli civilians since its founding in 1967 and throughout the Palestinian terror campaign between 2000-2005 (the Intifada).
Palestinian Media Watch documents that Fatah uses Facebook intensively to promote violence and glorify terrorists.
