Neither Fatah nor PA recognizes Israel
Official Palestinian Authority TV - Mar. 23, 2009

 
Azzam Al-Ahmed, Chairman of Fatah Party in PA Parliament:
     "We have already said in public and in official statements that it is not correct that we demand that Hamas recognize Israel. Fatah does not recognize Israel. The Democratic [Front] does not recognize Israel... The one that recognizes Israel is the Palestinian government [PLO]. The Palestinian government which represents the Palestinian people, and not the Palestinian Authority government [of Abbas].”
