Resistance Movement of Palestine defeated by region's reactionary forces
The Revolutionary Movement of Palestine, which during the past decades was the guidance light for majority of revolutionaries in Middle-East eventually has been defeated by Hamas fundamentalist organization.
Since the formation of Liberation Organization of Palestine by Yaser Arafat in1965 till now that it is defeated by Islamic Reactionary Group it has been through a roller coaster of events. For revolutionary and democratic forces, exploration of causes of this defeat and gaining valuable experiences from this event are very important. Apart from some compromising polices of Liberation Organization of Palestine and its leaders, the internal contradictions between old and new generations of the organization made them weak. However, we should not forget the destructive policies of the imperialist countries after the announcement of autonomy by Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza Strip.
