Partners in Peace? (Impractical to Find Political Solutions to Arab-Israeli conflict)

Who are Israel's partners in peace? Well, in the Israel-Palestine issue, Hamas is trouble but Fatah are good guys, right?

Uhm, not so sure about that. Give a gander to their Constitution

http://www.fateh.net/e_public/constitution.htm#Goals

Article (4) The Palestinian struggle is part and parcel of the world-wide struggle against Zionism, colonialism and international imperialism.

Article (7) The Zionist Movement is racial, colonial and aggressive in ideology, goals, organisation and method.


Article (8) The Israeli existence in Palestine is a Zionist invasion with a colonial expansive base, and it is a natural ally to colonialism and international imperialism.

Article (12) Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence.
Lots more good stuff, but it seems the tenets of their existence is the elimination of Israel. More than that they oppose "worldwide" Zionism, which sounds a lot like anti-semitic screeds against Jews.

But then, why not moderate Egypt. Oh, wait, one member is saying the only way to deal with Israel, who is trying to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque is with nukes, while many other members are saying that Egypt needs to invalidate all of the peace agreements they have with Israel.

And I quote...

It's not as black and white as you silly Americans make it out to be. Israel is just as bad
