Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement criticized the top Palestinian official in Jerusalem for his readiness to compromise with Israel. The statement blasts Sari Nusseibeh for trying to organize a referendum on a document he drafted with the former head of Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security service, Ami Ayalon, according to the Jerusalem Post. The document says Palestinian refugees should be allowed to return to a future Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, not to homes they abandoned in Israel.
