Senior Fatah member: Fatah will not recognize Israel
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Apr. 18, 2010

 
Azzam Al-Ahmad, Fatah Central Committee member:
     "We, as the Fatah movement, have not recognized Israel and will not recognize Israel, as the Fatah movement. We call upon all the factions not to recognize Israel, as Palestinian national action factions. Why? Because recognition is an act of governments. From our perspective, when our government, known as the PLO, exchanged documents of recognition with Israel following the Oslo Accords, that was the end of the matter."
