The winner of the Fatah primary in Jenin goes by the name "Hitler." He is wanted by Israel for the murder of several Arabs. Originally his name was Jamal Abu Rob.
He should not be confused with any of the at least 25 other "Hitlers" or "Abu Hitlers" in the PLO (as of 1993), such as one of the leaders of the elite Palestinian "Force 17" bodyguard unit, or his son "Hitler" (his official given name).
Here is an article about the strong pro-Nazi sentiments among the leadership of the Palestinians.
Update (Nov. 28): The Associated Press describes these results as "the rejuvenation of Fatah" and a "housecleaning" in a straight news piece titled Young Activists May Help Fatah Party. Hitler is not mentioned.
The article also says:

Update 2 (Nov. 28): Another AP reporter has picked up the "Hamas clean-government" theme in an article containing significantly plagiarized elements from the one mentioned above:
The housecleaning in Fatah is crucial to the party's hope of beating back a strong showing by the Islamic militant group Hamas, which has wooed Palestinians in part with its image as an honest group that will not tolerate corruption and graft.
