Fatah ignors the real issues, clamoring over hollow titles

From Khalid Amayreh in Bethlehem

"Many Palestinians had thought that the Fatah convention in Bethlehem would revitalize the movement by delivering it from its current dishonorable subservience to Israel and putting it on the right track again, the track of authentic national struggle that would free the Palestinian people and their usurped homeland from cruel Zionist occupation and domination.

However, what we have been witnessing in the past few days instead is cacophony of raving and ranting that has miserably failed to tackle the real defining issues facing the Palestinian people and endangering its vital national interests.......

Now, it seems, Fatah has effectively morphed itself into a five-star hotel where former revolutionaries are striving to enjoy life, while watching with utter insensitivity the very country they seek to liberate being pulverized and arrogated by the Zionists and the very people they claim to represent being raped, savaged and tormented by Israel, the presumed partner for peace.

Well, Fatah as we have known it for decades seems to be dead. Maybe another Fatah, a cleaner and honorable movement will rise up in place of the dead one. This is inevitable because treachery doesn’t prosper in this land. "
