Fatah

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Fatah (Arabic فتح) is a Palestinian secular nationalist organization.[1] The name itself is a reverse acronym of Harakat al-Tahrir al-Watani al-Filastini. The organization's founder and leader until his death was Yasir Arafat[2]. It is currently headed by Farouk Kaddoumi, the secretary-general of the Fatah central committee. Politically, Fatah falls left-of-center, bordering on socialism. Fatah is a full member of Socialist International.[3] Mahmoud Abbas, a member of Fatah, is currently the president of the Palestinian National Authority.[4]

The official goal of Fatah is the "complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence".[5]
