“Palestine” on the 1967 borders is “an intermediate statement” - senior Fatah official implies Fatah wants all of Israel
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi: "Why, as PLO, did we say 1967? ... The Palestinian leadership wanted to make it easier for our people with the establishment of its state on the 1967 borders, because that is what would be acceptable to the world... [The PLO] said 'a state on the 1967 borders,' however the [Palestinian] declaration of independence does not mention 1967… Put aside the [Palestinian] Authority – I am Fatah, and in the goals and principles of the Fatah Movement there is nothing that says 1967. Nothing... In everything related to me – one of the senior officials in Fatah - all my life I have never said 'a 1967 state.' ... I will not forget my homeland, will not forget Palestine, and will not forget Palestine's history. These [1967 borders] can be an intermediate statement."
Tawfiq Tirawi also holds the position of Fatah Commissioner of Popular Organizations.
