Palestinian Terrorism Round-Up
While much of the world has been focused on the horrors of the London terrorist bombings, Palestinian terrorist factions have been busy destroying the 5 month old ceasefire with Israel.
While the Israeli government has been working to ensure that it abandons its Westbank settlements, drawing the Ire of Jewish hardliners within their state, radical Palestinians have been moving to destroy peace in the region. On Wednesday, a suicide bomber killed 4 people in the Israeli city of Netanya- shattering the truce, and giving Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon no choice but to take measures to ensure the safety of his citizens.
Israeli forces on Thursday engaged a terrorist commander and killed him, his terrorist forces responded by firing rockets at Israeli farms from an area in Gaza- killing a young woman, and causing much property damage.
Meanwhile, Palestinian "Prime Minister" Mahmoud Abbas has been wholly unable, or unwilling, to quell the violence committed by the Palestinian forces, despite Palestinian Security forces being given carte blanche permission to use force against the Islamic Jihad and Hamas members perpetrating the violence.
Today, Palestinian terrorists continued the violence by launching 8 fresh rocket attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF forces- luckily todays attacks seemed to have brought no new casualties.
I think we can expect the violence to continue, even as the Israelis move to abide by their promises to leave their Gaza settlements. The Israeli commitment to peace is not enough, unless there are clear-headed and capable leaders on the Palestinian side, committed to peace and capable of leading their "country."

Abu Hamza knows he absolutely cannot be elected by the Palestinians to a leadership role.
The only chance he has to control the destiny of the Arab peoples in "Palestine" would be to marshall the forces that are still loyal to him to work against the leadership of the Islamic Jihad and Hamas. If he can break them, and force them to commit outright attacks against other Palestinians- he'll have a chance to increase his popularity.
All paths lead to civil war. Hamas wouldn't be content to compete with Hezbollah or Islamic Jihad, and the same goes for their organization. Abu Hamza has control of the "officially recognized government" and some sway of the remnants of Arafat's Al Aqsa brigades.
