68. Fatah has recognized Israel ?
Edited on Wed Apr-02-08 09:42 PM by azurnoir
When last week?

Yasser Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles with Israel in 1993 and exchanged mutual renunciations of terrorism with Israel and a mutual recognition between the PLO and Israel, and was allowed to return to the Palestinian territories from exile in Tunisia. The PNC met in a special session on 26 April 1996 to consider the issue of amending the Charter and assigned its legal committee the task of redrafting the Palestinian National Charter consistent with the Arafat letters in order to present it for approval.<17> A redrafted charter that does not call for the destruction of Israel has yet to be presented or approved and the official PNA website displays the original, unamended text of the PNC Charter. According to the US Department of State, "The Palestinian National Charter... amended by canceling the articles that are contrary to the letters exchanged between the P.L.O. and the Government of Israel 910 September 1993."<18>

The last sentence says that the US State dept claims there is a redrafted charter, but as of yet it has not been made public

Arafat may have signed a declaration however Arafat is dead, and nothing publicly has changed

On edit Abbas has stated that Fatah would recognize Israel but the statement of that sort was a while ago, at present it has not happened
