The articles under the
general title: “The 7th FATEH conference: Analysis of the documents,
challenges and the future” provide an analysis that addresses the main topics
that were discussed by the movement, given that many of the documents produced
by the conference have been channeled to it’s Revolutionary Council for
ratification. The drafts of those documents present a thorough presentation of

draft bylaws as presented at the 7th conference, which has been
channeled to the Revolutionary Council for ratification. Abu Shaweesh makes an
in-depth analysis of the evolution of the bylaws in comparison with the drafts
issued by the 5th and the 6th conferences.

internal relations, which are referred to as the “mobilization and recruitment”.
In addition, writer Riham
Odeh discussed the draft political program presented at the conference, in an
attempt to uncover any potential shifts in FATEH’s political positions,

the Palestinian national future to the world.
