Fatah and a moderate resolution of the conflict

Other bloggers have already mentioned that the Fatah conference in Bethlehem has yielded unfortunate statements from the moderates in the Palestinian armed peace camp.
Such as the complete rejection of any Jewish claim to Jerusalem, the Jewishness of any part of Jerusalem, or even any Jewish presence in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem should, according to moderate Palestinians, be Kike-free.

Fatah, of course, is the moderate faction of the PLO, chaired by moderate Mahmoud Abbas, and the party to which moderate negotiator Saeb Erekat belongs.

The moderate Palestinian position is that there will be NO NEGOTIATION with Israel, NO RECOGNITION of Israel, and that the armed struggle against Israel will continue INDEFINITELY.

This is the MODERATE position. We know it is moderate because the quartet supports the PLO.
The quartet consists of the USA, Russia, the Europeans, and the United Nations. Who all favour a peaceable solution, and support moderate points of view. They are balanced. They have perspective. They represent the sincerity, resolve, and goodwill of the international community.
They understand moderation.

Other moderate elements of the moderate Palestinian position are that all Arab murderers in Israeli jails should be feed, imports of cement, missiles, lead, and nitrocellulose into Gaza should be unimpeded, and that Israel must withdraw from all strategically important areas.

Oh, and they also seek rapprochement with Iran. Also moderate.

You can find more about all of it here:

The results of the Fatah conference in Bethlehem will be enthusiastically endorsed by many leading American and European politicians. Because Fatah are moderates, unlike Hamas.
We're all in agreement that Hamas is not moderate, right?

After all, Hamas still holds to the depressingly antiquated dicta of the Khartoum conference: no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with Israel.
How absurd!
