Fatah and Hamas - Is There REALLY a Difference?

28 Adar 5767, 3/18/2007

Clap your hands! Raise your arms and dance! Happy Days are here again. Now there will be peace.

Well, if not peace, then at least a real hope for peace, as the

Fatah and the Hamas have agreed to form a unity 'government' .

But does it make a difference? IS there any difference between the Fatah (PLO) and the the Hamas?

We are fed by the media and by the governments of the world pushing the 'peace process' that the fatah/PLO has changed, and now will work towards peace with israel, striving to live side by side with us. The Fatah and its leader Mahmood Abbas are supposed to be 'moderates'. They wear suits and ties. They were supposed to have changed their charter after the Oslo Accords, to stop their armed struggle. They never did this. They never revised their charter.

Which is Fatah and which is the Hamas?
Both are publicly parading with weapons they use (or plan to use) on Israel.
Which photo is which? Which is Fatah and which is the Hamas? Both are publicly parading with weapons they use (or plan to use) on Israel.

Both are terror entities. Both have planned and committed terror attacks against Israelis. Both continue to work for the destruction and demise of the Jewish State. The only real difference is that the Hamas is more religious oriented, while the Fatah/PLO is less focused on Islam.

See the Hamas Charter: (Here are just the first 12 resolutions, for brevity's sake)

Article 1: Palestine is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation.
Article 2: Palestine, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate, is an indivisible territorial unit.
Article 3: The Palestinian Arab people possess the legal right to their homeland and have the right to determine their destiny after achieving the liberation of their country in accordance with their wishes and entirely of their own accord and will.
Article 4: The Palestinian identity is a genuine, essential, and inherent characteristic; it is transmitted from parents to children. The Zionist occupation and the dispersal of the Palestinian Arab people, through the disasters which befell them, do not make them lose their Palestinian identity and their membership in the Palestinian community, nor do they negate them.
Article 5: The Palestinians are those Arab nationals who, until 1947, normally resided in Palestine regardless of whether they were evicted from it or have stayed there. Anyone born, after that date, of a Palestinian father - whether inside Palestine or outside it - is also a Palestinian.
Article 6: The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians.
Article 7: That there is a Palestinian community and that it has material, spiritual, and historical connection with Palestine are indisputable facts. It is a national duty to bring up individual Palestinians in an Arab revolutionary manner. All means of information and education must be adopted in order to acquaint the Palestinian with his country in the most profound manner, both spiritual and material, that is possible. He must be prepared for the armed struggle and ready to sacrifice his wealth and his life in order to win back his homeland and bring about its liberation.
Article 8: The phase in their history, through which the Palestinian people are now living, is that of national (watani) struggle for the liberation of Palestine. Thus the conflicts among the Palestinian national forces are secondary, and should be ended for the sake of the basic conflict that exists between the forces of Zionism and of imperialism on the one hand, and the Palestinian Arab people on the other. On this basis the Palestinian masses, regardless of whether they are residing in the national homeland or in diaspora (mahajir) constitute - both their organizations and the individuals - one national front working for the retrieval of Palestine and its liberation through armed struggle.
Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. Thus it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. The Palestinian Arab people assert their absolute determination and firm resolution to continue their armed struggle and to work for an armed popular revolution for the liberation of their country and their return to it. They also assert their right to normal life in Palestine and to exercise their right to self-determination and sovereignty over it.
Article 10: Commando action constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war. This requires its escalation, comprehensiveness, and the mobilization of all the Palestinian popular and educational efforts and their organization and involvement in the armed Palestinian revolution. It also requires the achieving of unity for the national (watani) struggle among the different groupings of the Palestinian people, and between the Palestinian people and the Arab masses, so as to secure the continuation of the revolution, its escalation, and victory.

Article 11: The Palestinians will have three mottoes: national (wataniyya) unity, national (qawmiyya) mobilization, and liberation.
Article 12: The Palestinian people believe in Arab unity. In order to contribute their share toward the attainment of that objective, however, they must, at the present stage of their struggle, safeguard their Palestinian identity and develop their consciousness of that identity, and oppose any plan that may dissolve or impair it.

Ok, I lied to you. This is NOT the Hamas Charter.
It is the PLO/Fatah Charter, the charter of the 'Moderates'. These terrorists are supposed to be the good guys, the 'moderate' ones, the ones that are seeking peace with Israel. After reading this PLO/Fatah charter, do you believe it is looking for peace with Israel? Does this group even agree to live side by side with an Israel, or is the whole charter saying there is no legitimacy for Israel, and that only a 'Palestine' can replace it?

Sadly, the Fatah and the Hamas want more of this for us here in Israel:
Warning: Graphic photos are posted below - The 'Brave' can scroll down.

(This last photo taken from:

I have more graphic and gruesome photos I can post, but those would be too difficult for most people to view. These three above give enough of an idea of the brutality of these terrorists on innocent people. But I have said this again and again, if the public saw what a terror scene really looked like, they would be so enraged, so incensed, that they would demand an end to the pussy-footing around with these so-called peace processes.

Mr. Olmert, read their charter. Read their charter!

    Tamar, Are you SURE you want to live there? Your neighbors are scary, ignorant... same as your government. Honestly I don't know which is worse. Your government lies to you and goes behind your back to give away your land... hummm sounds like mine (U.S.)... stay there, you'd be in the same situation here. Later Bill

    Anonymous...Israel needs Jews, Jews need Israel. Aliyah, mass from US, EU! What you think should be the answer- to stay away- is just what you should not do.

    No matter who's charter says what, our Charter- the Torah- says Israel is our home, and the borders are much further out than we have right now.

    The US will sell us out to serve their own purposes. They have done so historically, it's a matter of public record. Problem is that we have the illusion that the US gov't is friendly. It's far from the truth. They keep our people (JPollard) in jail- unjustly. They pressure us to give land away at our own expense, our safety, our unity.

    Fact:The US is not our friends, and the PA are not peace partners.

    Tamar, your show is great. I can see why the secular gov't took Arutz Sheva off air, it threatens everything they say and do, with truth, logic and clear thinking. Keep up the great work.

    Shoshana, Sorry to upset you about the condition of Tamar's location. Of course I agree with you. I'm sorry that I can't join G-d's people in Israel. I'm a Christian and hold the view that Israel is holy to the Jews, the land was given to them by G-d. I love the Jews. I do believe that the world is controlled by illuminati puppeteers and the Jews are the most manipulated people in the world theater. I fear that draining the swamp is not a consideration when the alligators are attacking and that is what the "masters" are enjoying. Yes, enjoying! This is an attack on G-d and these illuminatis are in glee watching G-d's children jump through whatever NEW hoop (coalition government) the ringmaster chooses! Soon, things will be different just as the Bible states!

    It is so stupid how the world portrays these savage animals. They are not different than nazis.

    The whole peace process is an asinine, ridiculous joke.
    I can't wait to get over there and be in the IDF... quite frankly, screw America.
