Security Chief: Palestinians to Disarm Militants

leave a comment »

According to this Reuters article, ‘Security Chief: Palestinians to Disarm Militants’: “Palestinian security forces intend to disarm militant factions as part of a plan to prevent attacks on Israelis, a senior Palestinian security official said on Tuesday.”

Although I dislike the concept of weapons confiscation, if such confiscation is targeted at known terror organizations, I have few qualms. As a practical matter though, this cannot be easy. However, if Abbas pulls it off, it will be a major step for peace. Now, if we can just end the incitement.
