.......if they have any success in opposing Abbas from within Fatah. al-Hassan, Rajoub and Barghouti - if the rumors are accurate - have the best plan. Only in opening dialog between the two factions - minus Abbas - is there a hope for any positive outcome for the Occupied Territories. They will still face the same opposition from Israel and the U.S. -but they must be united as Palestinians to restore order, etc. International power will only come from improving their image. Maybe complete fantasy - but my dream would be for them to encourage a non-violent movement - shoot nothing but FILM and get it on the U.S. and European news stations.I guarantee, MOST Americans have no idea about the tactics the Israeli's have been using. Gather power by exposing THEIR cruelty - but don't participate.
