Fatah, which presents itself internationally as the moderate Palestinian faction, doesn't recognize Israel at all and doesn't even hide this ideology. On official Palestinian Authority TV, Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner of Treasury and Economy Muhammad Shtayyeh openly emphasized Fatah's refusal to recognize Israel.
Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of Treasury and Economy Muhammad Shtayyeh: "The Fatah Movement never demanded that Hamas recognize Israel. To this moment, Fatah does not recognize Israel. The topic of recognition of Israel has not been raised in any of Fatah’s conferences.". [Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, March 26, 2017]
