From Ramallah with Husam Zomlot, Fatah spokesman for International relations. What is Fatah? Why is it a European Socialdemocratic party? Are they similar to Hamas? What does the PLO have to do with it? What and where is apartheid? Are there terrorists in Gaza? Why don't Palestinians and Israelis share their holy land? What does religion have to do with it? Do Palestinians recognize Israel? Why are some Israeli politicians "sick"? How do peace talks work? Is violence or non-violence more effective? How can there be peace? When does the occupation end?
