    Why in the world should Fatah, or anybody else, be expected to recognize Israel as the "Jewish Zionist State"? Israel doesn't call itself that. Israel can call itself anything it wants, but it declared statehood on 14 May 1948 as the "State of Israel". It was recognized as a member of the UN as the "State of Israel." Israel has diplomatic relations with 162 nations, all of whom recognize Israel as the "State of Israel," because that's what Israel said its name is. But for Israel now to claim that Palestinians must recognize Israel as the "Jewish," or, "Jewish Zionist, State" of Israel is nothing more than another arrogant attempt to forestall and complicate the introduction of peace talks. In 2002 and again in 2007 the Arab League offered a comprehensive peace plan to the "State of Israel." If Israel wants to be called the "Jewish Zionist State," change the name of the country. There is no member state of the UN with the name "Jewish Zionist State."
