    Fatah charter
    Article (19) Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.


    Article (22) Opposing any political solution offered as an alternative to demolishing the Zionist occupation in Palestine, as well as any project intended to liquidate the Palestinian case or impose any international mandate on its people.


    On the Destruction of Israel:




    'Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will


    obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.' (Preamble)




    The Exclusive Moslem Nature of the Area:




    'The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Holy Possession]


    consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day. No one


    can renounce it or any part, or abandon it or any part of it.'


    (Article 11)




    'Palestine is an Islamic land... Since this is the case, the


    Liberation of Palestine is an individual duty for every Moslem


    wherever he may be.' (Article 13)




    The Call to Jihad:




    'The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the


    individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews' usurpation,


    it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised.' (Article 15)




    'Ranks will close, fighters joining other fighters, and masses


    everywhere in the Islamic world will come forward in response to the


    call of duty, loudly proclaiming: 'Hail to Jihad!'. This cry will


    reach the heavens and will go on being resounded until liberation is


    achieved, the invaders vanquished and Allah's victory comes about.'


    (Article 33)




    Rejection of a Negotiated Peace Settlement:




    '[Peace] initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and


    international conferences are in contradiction to the principles of


    the Islamic Resistance Movement... Those conferences are no more than


    a means to appoint the infidels as arbitrators in the lands of


    Islam... There is no solution for the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility.' (Article 13)




    Condemnation of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty:




    'Egypt was, to a great extent, removed from the circle of struggle


    [against Zionism] through the treacherous Camp David Agreement. The


    Zionists are trying to draw other Arab countries into similar


    agreements in order to bring them outside the circle of struggle.


    ...Leaving the circle of struggle against Zionism is high treason,


    and cursed be he who perpetrates such an act.' (Article 32)
