Abba Eban
(former israeli
foreign minister)

Zionism is nothing more;but also nothing less;than the Jewish people’s sense of origin and destination in the land linked eternally with its name. It is also the instrument whereby the Jewish nation seeks an authentic fulfillment of itself.


Fatah Constitution

Article 12
Goal: Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political and cultural existence.


Abba Eban

The question is at what point Arab nationalism, with its prodigious glut of advantage, wealth and opportunity, will come to terms with the modest but equal rights of another Middle Eastern nation to pursue its life in security and peace.


Fatah Constitution

Article 19
Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.
