Fatah to resume suicide attacks?

Haaretz reports on Israeli fears that the 'good terrorists' from Fatah may resume suicide attacks.
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. But how reliable the report is remains unclear.

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.

Palestinian sources in the West Bank could not confirm it. 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.
They go on to give five reasons why Fatah may resume suicide bombings against Israel. Could it happen? Sure. Contrary to what the fools in the West believe, Hamas has never given up terror as a weapon. Will it happen? I hope not. But if God forbid it does, you can bet that with this government in power, the IDF will be sent in quickly to stop it.

Neither terror group has ever renounced homocide bombings as a weapon against Israel. This makes the completion of the security fence even more urgent.
