Palestinian Authority Reducing Incitement – Alex Fishman (Ynet News)
PA officials have realized that Hamas, which wishes to bring about the PA’s collapse, is behind the recent terror wave.
That is why the Temple Mount issue, which was the greatest motive for the violence, has suddenly disappeared from the PA’s discourse in the territories.
PA leaders are not encouraging violence as much and are not inciting as much. In the past two weeks, PA security forces have even been instructed to stop protestors from flocking to areas of friction.
The PA is not referring to the recent wave of violence as an intifada. Hamas is the only one using that term.
Last month, the Israel Security Agency arrested a Hamas military infrastructure in Abu Dis near Jerusalem. Most of its members are students at the local university.
This infrastructure, which received money and was operated by Hamas in Gaza, built explosives labs, recruited two suicide bombers and recruited Israeli Arabs to lead the suicide bombers into Israel.
