More Moderate Behavior

The palestinian Pal Today site is reporting that the PLO (i.e. PA) has recommended that palestinian “military wings” be dissolved.

The Hebrew general radio has quoted a Palestinian source as saying that the top body of the Palestine Liberation Organization  has recommended on Thursday dissolving all the military wings of the Palestinian factions including, Al-Aqsa brigades, the military wing of Fatah movement.

According to the Palestinian source, the resolution will be implemented first in the occupied West bank.

While this would be a welcome development – albeit years after the PA committed themselves to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure under the Road Map for Peace – there’s one slight problem.

Israel’s radio quoted the MP Mohammed Dahlan, as saying : “The decision of the central committee to dissolve the Palestinian military wings applies only on the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas movement, adding that the resolution does not include the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.

The radio has pointed out that Dahalan did not explain whether the resolution includes the military wings of other Palestinian factions or not.

In other words, Fatah is in effect deciding that its rivals Hamas cannot have military wings, but Fatah itself can. A conscious decision by the so-called “moderate” palestinians to continue with terrorism, and avoid its commitments to Israel and the international community.

But what the hell! Let’s give them $400 million anyway.
