Fateh - Fatah
Here are two important articles form the Fateh Constitution:
Article (12) ...complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence
Article (19) "Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated."
These articles are from the constitution of the more moderate Palestinian Fatah - the organization of Mahmoud Abbas (alias Abu Mazen) - ruling the Palestinian Authority in Yehuda and Shomron (the West Bank).
Can anybody believe that it is easy to reach a peace treaty with an entity which consistently declares that its main goal is "to eradicate", "to uproot" and "to demolish" Israel?
