Fatah leader denounces his movement's "silence" on Gaza

Jan. 17, 2009 4:05 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 17, 2009 4:05 P.M.)
Jerusalem - Ma'an - A Fatah senior leader, Hatem Abdul Qader, criticized on Saturday what he described as the silence of the Fatah leadership on the Israeli attack on Gaza and the Palestinian national project as a whole.

"The leadership of the was supposed movement to play a greater and influential role in dealing with the massacres and conspiracies against the Palestinians," he said, decrying attacks "aiming at ending Palestinians' material and moral existence."

Abdul Qader is a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) from Jerusalem.

In a statement, he held the Fatah's leadership responsible for "this setback and the inability to play an influential role in the dangerous events that are taking place in Palestine."

He noted that "the divisions that inflicted the movement prevented it from taking clear and honest stances towards the recent events, an issue that made it losing its ability of clearing a political vision capable of dealing effectively with the up to date developments to stand firmly against the Israeli onslaught on the Palestinians."

He noted that "all the actions carried out by the movement in the West Bank and East Jerusalem were natural responses by the field leaders of the movement. There were no central actions led by the movement."

He criticized "the movement's silence towards those who take stance on its behalf and they do not related to it, he explained that "they are trying to distort the movement and its stances towards the recent events."
