    Reality Check

    This a section of text from a paper produced at a recent Fatah "conference":-

    "The status of Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state is a red line that no Palestinian leader is permitted to cross" President Mahmoud Abbas' ruling Fatah faction declared in the West Bank on Saturday.

    According to Israel Radio, the Fatah General Conference, which convened in Bethlehem for a three-day gathering, adopted a position paper which also states that the Palestinian national enterprise will not reach fruition until all of Jerusalem, including the outlying villages, come under Palestinian sovereignty.

    Fatah, which rules the West Bank but was ousted from power in Gaza by the Islamist Hamas movement, also ruled out any interim agreements with Israel.

    Fatah will continue to sacrifice victims until Jerusalem will be returned [to the Palestinians], clean of settlements and settlers," the paper states.
