Fatah official: Remove Hamas from terrorist list

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Fatah supports removing Hamas from global terrorist lists, but insists the PLO must remain the only representative of the Palestinian people, a central committee member said Wednesday.

Amal Hamad said Fatah supports national unity on the Palestinian street, but is concerned that Hamas will announce a "state of Gaza".

"Gaza is part of Palestine, and we will not allow anyone to separate it from the West Bank," Hamad said.

A leader in Hamas, Ismael al-Ashkar, said that most European countries were in direct contact with Hamas, but the issue needed time to be formalized.

"All the Europeans who visited the Gaza Strip said they had a mistake by putting Hamas on the world terrorism list," al-Ashkar said.

Akram Attallah, a political analyst, said it was too early to remove Hamas from the list as the international community had conditions that Hamas had not yet agreed to.

Attallah told Ma'an that Hamas needed a fundamental change in its political approach and ideology to get off the list.

Amal Hamad got it completely wrong: Hamas does belong to the terrorist list. And PLO also belongs to the same terrorist list - they are not that much different - just read both chapters. Both of them - PLO and Hamas are examples of the palestinian terrorist organizations. Why are they afraid to admit it?

Fatah may support removing Hamas from global terrorist lists, but that will be decided by rational global governments, and instead if a Hamas-PLO reconcilliation is ever reached, the PLO-Fatah-PA government will be added to global terrorist lists.

In response to the commentator above me: Just Read the Likud charter. And to complete this: We're French fighting against Nazi Occupation Terrorists ? No ? Those we're Resistance fighters right ? So why are Palestinians deemed "Terrorists" then ?

Eric #3 - you should not mention French fighting Nazi - everybody knows that French government gave up country to Nazis and sent hundreds of thousands of French citizens to concentration kemps. Hitler was parading in Paris while French lackeys were kissing his boots. France betrayed their own people and agreements with Poland and Great Britain to fight Nazis. French better not to mention World War 2 - it is a huge stain on the France name and it would not be washed out too soon.
