The official list published Saturday of winners in elections to the Revolutionary Council of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement, included 67-year-old Uri Davis, a Jerusalem-born Israeli Jew.

He is the first Jew to become a member of the liberation movement established in 1958 with the goal of liberating Palestinian from Israeli occupation.

Davis, who in the 1980s abandoned his Israeli citizenship in protest over Israel's continued occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and later received Palestinian citizenship, was the only non- Arab to run for a seat in the Revolutionary Council, Fatah's legislative body.


I think this is great news, and may open the door for more Jews and Israelis to come and make a stand against the actions of Israel towards the Palestinians.
