    For years, Israel has been called upon to make "goodwill gestures" and show "more flexibilty" in a vain attempt to "bolster" Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas. Despite the fact that he wears tailored suits, knows how to make a windsor knot in his tie, and his grandfatherly look, "moderate" Abbas is every much the terrorist that his predecessor Arafat was. At Arafat's command, Abbas oversaw the Munich massacre and was in charge of fundraising to subsidize other murderous Fatah attacks. Just recently at "moderate" Fatah's conference in Bethlehem, Abbas called for the "liberation" of ALL of Palestine (Akko, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem etc.) by armed struggle. Last week, "moderate" Fatah called for a renewal of suicide bombings. What kind of "moderates" are Abbas and his Fatah henchmen???
