In the past, the Israelis tended to target secular moderates more so than militant Islamiscists, back in the early days of the Israeli Iron Fist Occupation Policies in the late 70's-80's. So beware....Unless the Israelis have truely changed and given up the idea of Greater Israel (still unclear), a secular moderate group will be targetted and discredited by Israel. However, this developement is much needed. A party which brings technical people into its ranks, competent people who can build institutions even under the duress of the ongoing Israeli seige.
