Some Palestinian Factions 'Mellowing'?Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
I did say some....
Does this signal a split among Hamas factions in the territories and the terrorist leadership in Damascus?
Does this change have anything to do with the financial support (and the influence thereof) of certain Arab states? This particular article casts a negative shadow on an "Israel-US-EU alliance"(after all, it's Aljazeera), however, the fact that the embargo has been eased a bit to allow some Arab assistance to reach the Palestinians, juxtaposed with what could be an expected subsequent influence of the "somewhat" moderate Arab states, has the "smell" of fitting-in with the Bush/Rice plan ffor an Arab "umbrella" group to counter Iranian and Syrian influence with the Palestinians. Just a coincidence? Could concept have actually been in the plan all along? Remember, the Arab League voted in 2002 to accept Israel's existence if it gave up the occupied territories - which Israel has been trying to do while being rained upon with rockets, suicide attacks, and kidnappings.
