Palestinian political party Fatah, along with other Palestinian political organizations, criticized representatives of the Palestinian Authority for meeting with Israeli politicians sympathetic with the Palestinian Authority..
In a meeting this week set up by the left-wing Geneva Initiative, members of the ruling right-wing Likud Party and opposition Shas Sephardi party met with PLO Secretary-General Yasser Abed Rabbo and several other senior Palestinian officials, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Fatah condemned the meeting because it promoted “normalization” with Israel, which is a bit strange since that is what chairman Mahmoud Abbas tries to make people he wants, so long as it is on his terms.
“We condemn normalization and those behind it,” the statement read. “Such meetings are void of political content and a waste of time. They are unjustified, nationally and politically.”
