Israel gave Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas a double boost in the planned release of 26 terrorists names Monday morning, first by agreeing to Abbas’ pre-condition linking their freedom with the resumption of peace talks and secondly by including six terrorists from gangs that are rivals to Abbas’ Fatah party terrorist branch.
Two of the terrorists were members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), two belonged to Hamas, and two others belonged to the Islamic Jihad. The remaining 20 murdered or attempted to murder Jews in the name of Abbas’ Fatah movement.
The scheduled release of the six from rival terrorist gangs gives Abbas a boost in his image among the terrorist organizations, all of which do not make any claims that they are interested in a “two-state” solution.
