IDF commander: Terror groups pooling resources

Stick this one in the "Duh!" department.

After the IDF's Haruv battalion captured two Palestinian terrorists on their way from Shchem to Jerusalem this morning with a 7-kilo explosives belt filled with nuts and bolts for 'maximum effect' (and probably laced with rat poison to boot), the battalion's commander said that all the terrorist groups have joined forces in the face of IDF pressure on them:
"The IDF pressure on the terrorist groups forces them to use off road tracks to infiltrate and has forced them to join forces due to a lack of weapons and manpower by each individual group."
But that's not why I'm showing you this piece, because it was obvious all along that the terrorist groups have always worked together and shared personnel and resources, and that the terrorists themselves change uniforms as needed. I'm sharing this piece with you to point out to you how politically correct the Jerusalem Post HaAretz Lite has become:
Following Monday's foiled terrorist attack near Nablus, Haruv Battalion commander Lt.-Col. Arik Hen said that all the different terrorist groups, including Islamic Jihad, Fatah and the PFLP were pooling their resources for maximum effect.
Gee, who's missing? And after all those years when Fatah were the 'good' 'Palestinians' (their sponsorhip of the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade notwithstanding) and that other group was the bad guys. (I'm giving Lt. Col. Hen enough credit to assume that he was not the one who gave that list to the Post, and note that it is not a direct quote from him).
