Brand new Fatah? | Op-Ed Contributors | Jerusalem Post

Israel may regret one day that it allowed the convening of the Fatah conference in Bethlehem because the new leadership will not agree to carry on negotiating indefinitely without real progress toward a political settlement and while Israel continues its settlement activities in occupied territory. A new generation of leaders will soon have to confront the reality of Israel’s anti-peace activities and at the same time seek to regain the sympathy and support of their own people.

Maybe Fatah will become a sort of a political party in the occupied territories, but the lack of progress toward a political solution will inspire some of its members to long for the old days of underground struggle against occupation.
