JB:"The PA does not have to wipe them off the map, Peter; the Road Map merely says that the PA security forces have to demonstate a committment to combatting them." Well Johnboy, that's a very generous way of looking at it. I would say they have to do more than that, they have to succeed. Looky looky Roadmap, Phase 1, Security: "Rebuilt and refocused Palestinian Authority security apparatus begins sustained, targeted, and effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantlement of terrorist capabilities and infrastructure. This includes commencing confiscation of illegal weapons and consolidation of security authority, free of association with terror and corruption." The aims of Roadmap with respect to terror groups are quite clear. The aim is to get rid of them. I believe Fatah did their best in Gaza and I feel sorry for what happened to them however the aim of Roadmap has not been met. Hamas are still there, bigger and badder than ever.
