PLO/FATAH AND IRAN : The Special Relationship

PLO/Fatah, now better known as the “Palestinian Authority,” will govern a "Palestinian State in the militarily strategic territories of Judea and Samaria (or “West Bank”) if the Middle East “peace process” concludes with a “Two-State Solution.”
 Given that Iranian leaders daily promise the destruction of Israel, most people assume that PLO/Fatah has nothing to do with Iran. It would be absurd, they implicitly reason, for Israeli leaders to give strategic territory to an Iranian proxy. And yet, it is a historical fact that PLO/Fatah helped install Ayatollah Khomeini in power and create the current Iranian Islamist regime. It has maintained a close relationship with this regime ever since. This short film documents that relationship.

The strategy as described by various key members of the Palestinian Authority is “a plan of phases”. 1. Promise peace; 2. Get as much territory by negotiation as possible; 3. Then destroy Israel. Such words as “Trojan horse” are actually used by the Palestinians on public TV when they are explaining the reasons for their  various actions.
