PNN – Palestine News Network – Fateh overcomes obstacles and moves closer to a political party

Dahlan who many had accused of personal responsibility for the loss of Gaza to Hamas gave a strong speech accusing the previous Fatah leadership of having lost Gaza long before it actually fell in June 2007. Speaking to clapping from the congress Dahlan detailed how the former Fatah leadership repeatedly ignored his warnings and his pleadings to the central committee members to come to Gaza and to see for themselves the situation on the ground.

The overwhelming argument of delegates was that the movement must keep its options open to move back to secret underground movement if the negotiations for statehood fail while being ready for a political party if a Palestinian state is born. For the time being the conclusion of the sixth congress reflects an inclination towards a party rather than an underground resistance movement.
