Senior Palestinian MP: Fatah, Hamas Share Stance on Not Recognizing Israel

"No one in Fatah and Hamas movements recognizes Israel," Abdullah Abdullah told FNA, asked if the so-called Fatah-Israel peace talks would continue, given Hamas's opposition to the process.

The Fatah official further stressed Israel should realize that it cannot rule the peace process while having Palestinian territories under occupation.

"Palestinians who are a nation under occupation have and will resist against the occupiers and we witness Palestinian resistance and conflicts with the Zionist regime in most regions," he said.

The official underlined that Fatah would never attend any negotiation with the Israeli regime if such talks are not based on the international rules, and stated, "If Israel withdraws from the Palestinian and Arab lands, it might be possible to enter peace negotiations."

"If Tel Aviv does not withdraw from the Palestinian territories, all Palestinian groups will resist against this occupation along with the Palestinian people," Abdullah underlined.

The comments by the Palestinian lawmaker came days after Thirteen Palestinian groups including, Fatah and Hamas, signed a landmark unity deal ending their long-running division.

Prior to the agreement, the Islamic movement Hamas was at loggerheads with Fatah, headed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, since Hamas won the parliamentary elections in January of 2006. After winning the elections, Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip ending months of bloody conflict with Fatah allied security forces. Egypt and other Arab countries' attempts of reaching a reconciliation deal between the two largest Palestinian factions had earlier failed.

According to internal sources, the agreement will include formation of a caretaker government until elections take place in both the West Bank and Gaza.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi welcomed the Palestinian reconciliation agreement, and called it a positive move towards materializing Palestinian people's goals and rights.
