The Fatah movement of Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has elected an Israeli Jew to one of its governing bodies for the first time in the movement's half-century history.


Author of the books "Israel: An Apartheid State," published in 1987 and "Apartheid Israel: Possibilities for the Struggle Within," published in 2004, Davis prefers to identify himself as a Palestinian Jew.

"I hold Israeli and British passports but I consider myself Palestinian above all else," Davis told Fatah delegates at the party's first congress on Palestinian soil and its first since the launch of the Middle East process in 1991.



The academic, now aged 66, has long advocated a secular democratic state in all of historic Palestine, rejecting the Zionist project of a Jewish state in part or all of the Holy Land that has been supported by the vast majority of his fellow citizens.

Not that he'd be able to clean that rotten government, not that Fatah is a model for anyone except an occupying force aiming to keep the natives dispossessed. But still a step to be commended. Already years ago there has been a Christian Palestinian ambassador to the US (maybe he still is). He was in fact shouted at during an interview (where else except CSPAN, why would Ted Turner or Murdock want to be fair) how Palestinians are not representative of their minorities, it was then that he revealed he was a Christian and how Israel and not the Palestinians, is dispossessing every gentile. It was news to me too.

At this time it looks like while every single leader in the Muslim world sleeps, while even the Palestinian deaths are just not newsworthy enough (just about all they can possibly do), it will have to be people like him all over the world who are most likely to bring the necessary positive change.

Your kidding about Ted Turner right? He was always Anti-Israel (I didn't say anti semite, I said Anti-Israel)

I found the apology letter he sent to the ADL. For years, I had always known his as a Palestinian sympathizer.

New York, NY, June 20, 2002 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today welcomed a letter from AOL Time Warner Vice Chairman Ted Turner apologizing for his earlier comments in a London newspaper justifying Palestinian suicide bombers.

"I hope you understand that I do not morally equate Israel's right to defend itself with the intentional killing of innocent civilians," Mr. Turner wrote in a letter to Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.

"While I have questioned the policies of the Israeli government in the past, that in no way should be interpreted as an absolution of Palestinian tactics," Mr. Turner wrote. "The crux of my point was the unacceptability of the level of violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It deeply pains me that there is so much human loss on both sides."

CNN is the dual headed monster. With its separate international and US channel it often tears itself apart. But there is no doubt there is none in the mainstream western media willing to acknowledge the truth of the Israel-Palestine conflict. CNN may not be willing to go as far as some others to conjure up facts or hide some others, but that does not make them anti-Israel or pro truth.

Thank You.
