Abu Ahmed, a member of President Abbas' Fatah organization and the leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade in the Gaza Strip, stated today what we have all known for years. The late Chairman of the PLO, Yasser Arafat, was a master of the trade of double-speak. He was hailed by world leaders and BBC journalists as a great man of peace - and so he seemed when he spoke with the English tongue. But he encouraged his Arabic audience to continue their Jihad against the Jewish state until Israel was "driven into the sea". Hamas talks about openly what Fatah has secretly hoped for all along, the ultimate destruction of Israel. While the Palestinian Liberation Organization recognized Israel's right to exist, Fatah as a party has not and will not, but are using PLO recognition of Israel as a cover to hide their own satanic agenda.
Quote: ""The base of our Fatah movement keeps dreaming of Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jaffa and Akko," said Abu Ahmed, Fatah member and leader of the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the northern Gaza Strip. "There is no change in our position. Abbas recognizes Israel because of pressure that the Zionists and the Americans are exercising on him. We understand this is part of his obligations and political calculations."... "It is the PLO, which is a separate entity, that recognized Israel, and this was a step, a tactical step that had as its goal to bring the resistance and the revolution closer to the lands of Palestine," Abu Ahmed said.
Talks between President Abbas and Prime Minister Haniyeh ended without agreement last month, after Hamas once again refused to recognize Israel's right to exist - a precondition that was set down by the UN Security Council earlier in the year. World leaders had hoped the Prisoners' Document, which they claimed implicitly recognized Israel's right to exist (which was a big lie for you and me), would have brought Hamas in from the cold. So far Hamas hasn't budged. The 18 point plan also calls for the "right of return" for Palestinians displaced after the 1948 war of independence to return to Israel, which many Palestinians and Israelis believe would spell political annihilation for the Jewish state.
