RAMALLAH, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party is to adopt public peaceful resistance against
Israel to support peace talks between the Palestinian National Authority (PNA)
and the Jewish state, a new document showed.
The document, which outlines Fatah's upcoming
strategy, would be presented for ratification in the movement's long-awaited
sixth General Assembly, scheduled to take place on Tuesday in the West Bank city
"The forms of public resistance can be found in all
types of boycotting, public and cultural mobilization against the occupation,
escalating public activities against the occupation, its checkpoints and
settlement and carrying out these activities on daily systematic process," said
the document obtained by Xinhua.
The awaited Fatah program did not mention any sort of
military activities or reveal the future of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the
movement's armed wing.
Meanwhile, the document stressed that settling the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict must be based on UN resolutions and Arab visions
rather than the U.S.-backed Road Map peace plan or the declaration of the 2007
U.S.-hosted Annapolis peace conference.
Fatah will "stick to international references to the
peace process and the Arab peace initiative and will not be drawn to alternative
references that help the (Israeli) occupation disavowing its commitments."
It also emphasized that the Palestinians can never
recognize Israel as a Jewish state. "This is to protect the rights of the
Palestinian refugees and the Palestinians (Arabs) who live inside the green line
Fatah's sixth General Assembly is the first in 20
years. It aims at reviving the movement, after defeated by rival Islamic Hamas
movement in 2006 parliamentary elections and losing control in the Gaza Strip a
