Fatah has never recognized Israel.....

And Fatah is the moderate faction!
Fatah has never recognized Israel’s right to exist and will never do so, according to Azzam al-Ahmed, a member of the Fatah Central Committee who is closely associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Ahmed, who is also head of the Fatah negotiating team with Hamas, said PA security forces in the West Bank were arresting Hamas supporters to protect them from being targeted by the IDF.

Ahmed’s remarks were made in an interview with the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al- Youm.

Asked whether Fatah had spoken with Hamas about recognizing Israel, the senior Fatah official said, “Fatah has not recognized Israel. I challenge anyone who says that the case is otherwise, whether it’s Hamas or others. Neither Fatah nor Hamas is required to recognize Israel. Only governments and states extend recognition. It was the Palestinian government that recognized Israel, just as the Israeli government recognized us.”

And these are the people that the Current President of the United States says deserve a homeland on Israeli soil.

I couldn't care less whether they recognize Israel or not: there will always be those of us who oppose them, and don't think that they deserve one acre of land in the Jewish homeland. The Philistines (pardon me, the Palestinians) making these demands are thieves, liars, and squatters. May their tribe decrease.

It is not that I disagree with your post, but it is imperative for any hope of peace for the Arabs to recognise Israel as a Jewish State and not just Israel. Since there are Israeli Arabs, citizens of Israel, there is a new game afoot which is to say they recognise Israel meaning a non Jewish State. It is the politicising of language; the same as when Arafat hijacked the term "Palestinian" for the Arabs on the advice of the KGB. Prior to this the term was applied to the Jewish people living there pre 1948.

So blatant, and various lefties don't believe it, or if they do believe it, they approve it.
