Fatah Backs Abbas's Refusal to Recognize Israel


The Revolutionary Council of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party on Monday unanimously endorsed his rejection of demands to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, officials at the meeting told AFP.

"President Abbas has reaffirmed his refusal to recognize the Jewishness of the State of Israel and council members stood up to hail this decision," a senior Fatah official said from the meeting in Ramallah.
