Fatah official insists on right of return; lashes out at Hamas

Bethlehem - Ma'an - Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki said on Sunday
that a "modern Palestinian revolution" has erupted to demand the right of
return for Palestinian refugees.

Those who believe a resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict can be
reached without the right of return according to UN resolution 194, he said,
are "insane."

Zaki, who is also the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO)
representative in Lebanon, was speaking at a panel discussion in the
southern West Bank city of Hebron, along with the city's mayor, Khalid
Asila, and governor Hussain Al-A'raj.

On the subject of the upcoming US-backed peace conference, he said: "We will
go to Annapolis and surprise those who criticize Fatah and the PLO that it
was us who initiated the idea of an independent state and the pursuers of
freedom."

With regards to Hamas' June takeover of the Gaza Strip, Zaki said, "Had
Hamas assaulted Fatah alone, we would have pardoned them; but they had
lowered the Palestinian flag, demolished the Unknown Soldier's monument,
entered homes of PLO's leaders Abu Jihad and Yasser Arafat; they sold
Arafat's uniform for 200 NIS."
