Fatah has always been about the financial comfort of its leadership
Reader comment on: Hamas's Fatah and the No-State Solution

Since the days of Arafat, Fatah has been about one thing; the financial betterment of its leadership. It has never been about the advancement of the "Palestinian" people. Arafat lived and died as a billionaire, living off the money that Fatah extorted from weak-minded Western governments and aid organizations. Abbas saw how this scheme worked, and after assuming leadership of Fatah, carried it out to his own advantage.
