Fatah’s new logo depicting Palestinian control over the entire area of the State of Israel is continuing to concern and outrage Jews around the world and in Israel, illustrating to many a lack of interest on the part of the PA in reaching a two state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
In December, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official daily newspaper of the Fatah-led PA, issued a logo for the party’s 48th anniversary featuring a map of the British mandate of Palestine, the state that existed before the 1948 establishment of Israel.
Palestinian Media Watch picked up the story, noting that the logo included a set of keys, connoting Palestinian control over a land of Israel covered in a keffiyah.
The United States and European countries have repeatedly pushed Israel to conduct negotiations with Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas in order to carve a Palestinian state out of what is currently the State of Israel.
Abbas unilaterally pushed for nonmember observer status at the United Nations just days after declaring that he stood behind a two state solution.
Fatah has become more acceptable amongst Hamas loyalists in Gaza, with Fatah celebrating its anniversary publicly for the first time there in five years. Jerusalem also allowed Fatah to hold celebrations in Israel’s capital city.
