Third Intifada? Israel worried "moderate" Fatah terrorists may resume suicide attacks

Ha'aretz reports: 

Sultan Abu al-Ghneim, who represents Fatah in the refugee camps of Lebanon, gave a speech last week at a Ramallah rally and called on Fatah to resume suicide bombings against Israel, according to the report in the London-based Al-Quds al-Arabi.

Abu al-Ghneim reportedly called on Fatah to use the "doom's day weapon" that the group used at the peak of the second intifada and has not employed for the past three years.

The statement being attributed to Abu al-Ghneim is just the latest of a series of statements by Fatah members, some more important than others, who threaten to resume the armed struggle. Similar ideas were heard during the sixth Fatah conference in Bethlehem in August, and also in recent talks between Fatah and Hamas. Such talk is certainly a subject of concern for Israelis.

The threat of a third intifada, which was discussed at length during the Sukkot holiday and the troubles at the Temple Mount, incited by third-rate activists of the Palestinian Authority and the Islamic Movement in Israel, apparently died down as the clashes ebbed. There are still plenty of reasons for concern, mainly because of the dead end in which the two sides have found themselves.

From this viewpoint, the situation between Israel and the Palestinians, specifically in the West Bank, may be ready to explode, despite the improvement in the economy there, the relatively effective governance of Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad and the improved security coordination between the Israeli Defense Forces and the PA's organs. The relations between all the sides - Israel and the U.S., Israel and the PA, Fatah and Hamas and the various other groups in the PA - are characterized now by seriously bad blood. Herein are some of the more obvious trends:
But wait, how could this be?  We thought Fatah was the "moderate" terrorist organization and Abbas was the "moderate" Holocaust-denying financier of terror!  If Fatah could launch a 'Third Intifada' what does that say about all the governments and various mainstream Jewish organizations who have consistently tried to push the myth that it is "moderate?"
