    Article 12 of the Fatah Constitution, which is the first article relating to Fatah's goals, states that the chief goal of Fatah is the "complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence." So when BB says that the Palestinians want to throw Israel into the sea, that is an accurate synopsis of Fatah's self-stated main goal. And therefore, BB's position is not "retrograde" so much as ACCURATE, while Levy is living in a fantasy world. Why do people like Levy fantasize in such a dangerous and counterproductive fashion? I think it's partly the hope for peace, but mostly the desire to defeat what they see as Jewish messianism by opposing the settlement movement. Fatah and now Hamas are seen as tools to this greater goal, and they are in fact so needed by the Extreme Left that there is actually a psychological need to deny the facts that ipso facto render Fatah and Hamas as impossible negotiating partners.
