ABSTRACT
The article discusses the conference of Fatah, the party that dominates the Palestinian Authority, and the mixed messages it produced for peace and reconciliation. It notes the chance of Fatah to strengthen its standing against Hamas and the sets of forces that discouraged moderation. It also looks at some positions the conference agreed upon including a decision to make peace talks much more difficult to start and a separate call for Palestinians to take a complete control of all of Jerusalem.
