Fatah or Palestinian Liberation Organization's Goals of Taking Over Israel

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                  

The PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) has changed their name to Fatah, the leading political arm of Abbas who is dealing with Israel and Kerry over the creation of a state for the Arabs alongside of Israel.

The PLO was created in 1964 when a covenant was adopted equating the borders of the proposed Palestinian state with the same Palestine of the British Mandate.  This included the whole state of Israel.  They wanted to absorb Israel as their own state of Palestine.  The PLO was made up of all the Palestinian Arab organizations whose goal was the establishment of their own independent state of Palestine.  There had been no interest or desire to do so until the War of 1967 where Israel won in 6 days even though she was attacked by all the surrounding states and then some more.  The Arabs had been offered a chance to have a state of their own at the time Israel was created in 1948 but had constantly turned down the chance throughout the coming years.  They just wanted to destroy Israel.  That was their agenda.
                                       Yasssir Arafat, born 1929 in Cairo, Egypt

After the Six Day War of 1967, the PLO was headed by Yassir Arafat, born in Cairo, Egypt,  and was on a bent of terror inside Israel and throughout the world to gain their goals of destroying Israel.  The major groups in the PLO were Fatah with their leader, Arafat, which was the largest group; the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, headed by George Habash, and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, headed by Nayaef Hawatma.  Arafat had a worldwide program of terror activities aimed at Israeli, Zionist and Jewish targets.  His activities led to the King Hussein of Jordan to expel the PLO from Jordan in 1970,  its ousting from Lebanon in 1982 by the Israeli army with the acts of Lebanese Major Hadad,  and his support of Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Gulf War.  Arafat would have been the president of a Palestinian state, but he died and Mahmoud Abbas took over his position.

By 1974 they achieved the status of an Observer-Member of the UN.  It's acceptance by other Arab nations has been on and off.  There were times when they were excluded by Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.  The last was after the Israeli invasion of 1982 when the PLO were attacking  Israel from Lebanon and Major Hadad of the Christian Lebanese Militia went into the PLO camps and killed many of them.

In 1988, Arafat made a statement which included that he would agree to recognize the existence of Israel, something Abbas still refuses to do today.  Arafat's statement led to a dialogue with the USA.  It ended because it was followed up with more terror attacks and Arafat's support of Saddam Husseini in the 1991 Gulf War.  It had turned out to be an empty statement, meant for stalling.
                                    Hamas, a terrorist organization-developed out of Fatah

Hamas was created out of the group as a stronger terrorist arm and kicked out Fatah from Gaza.  since June 2007, they governed the Gaza Strip by winning a majority of seats in the Palestinian Parliament in their January 2006 elections.  They are still listed as a terrorist organization, but Iran, Russia, Turkey and Arab nations of course do not accept the label.  Hamas  had been founded during the First Intifada as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.  One only has to look at the Muslim Brotherhood Charter to see that they have the same goals towards destroying Israel. The Hamas Charter affirmed in 1988, that Hamas was founded to liberate Palestine from Israeli occupation and to establish an Islamic state in the land now called Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.    This Brotherhood had been outlawed in Egypt.  It was Obama in his Cairo speech who insisted that they be allowed to come to hear him talk, and representatives were able to have good seats up front to hear him.
In the 1980s, Islamic fundamentalism was gaining acceptance in Islamic countries.  By July 2009, Khaled Meshal, Hamas's political bureau chief, said they were willing to cooperate with "a resolution about the Arab-Israeli conflict that included a state of Palestine based on 1967 borders provided that Palestinian refugees have the right to return to Israel and that East Jerusalem become their nation's capital.  These are impossible demands.                                            
                           Mahmoud  Abbas, Palestine Authority Leader from PLO/Fatah

In 1967, Israel won after being attacked by all the Arab nations and lost many of their own soldiers in that horrific battle.  The established borders are most necessary to keep in this violent and hateful neighborhood.  They are a must for Israel's security.  Also,  if all the descendants of the original Arabs of 1948 were allowed to enter Israel, Israel would be no more.  East Jerusalem is a part of the north, south and west Jerusalem.  It is one city.  It has always been the city of David, the Jewish king.  Israelis do not want to give away a part of their most precious city.  They are highly aware of the goals of the Palestinians.  They wouldn't ever be satisfied with a piece when their goal is the whole state of Israel.  Abbas still refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.  He continues to hold the goals listed by Hamas in the Peace talks.  .

The Palestinian Arabs are not indigenous to the land of Israel.  They never had a country in this land in ancient days.  There never was a state of Palestine.  It was simply a name for a land.  Arabs in the land called themselves Syrian Arabs, not Palestinian Arabs. Palestine is like giving yourself the name of an empty lot.                                                              
                                                    Ishmael Haniyah of Hamas      

Hamas continues to shell southern Israel from Gaza with mortars, rockets and missiles.  Hamas is not so different from Haman, who was the chief minister of Ahasuerus, king of Persia long ago.  He had wanted to exterminate all Jews in the world. In that piece of history, Haman got his comings by being hung by the king when he discovered what his goal was.  Hopefully that could forsee the end of Hamas and their goal of a never-ending war between the Arabs and Jews with their goal of destroying Israel.  The name of Haman has become synonymous with an enemy of the Jews. The Hamas charter says that "The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry:  Oh Muslim!  there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!"  This statement is found either in the Koran or other Islamic writings.  The Hamas charter also quotes other Islamic religious texts to provide justification for fighting against and killing the Jews of Israel, presenting the Arab-Israeli conflict as a struggle between Jews and Muslims or Judaism and Islam.  It adds that the only way to be in this struggle between "truth and falsehood" is through Islam and by means of Jihad until victory or martyrdom.  They wrote that renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the Islam.  They also have the chutzpa to write that Hamas is of course a humanistic and tolerant movement of other religions--as long as they do not get in the way of their goals.
