Operation Cast Lead: How Would Fatah Have Done It?

Boker Tov, Boulder makes an interesting observation:
The so-called Quartet, the United States, Israel and the Palestinians all agreed to the Road Map, right?

Well it says.... in Phase I ... that "individuals and groups conducting and planning violent attacks on the Israelis anywhere" are to be arrested, disrupted and restrained. It also calls for, and I quote:

"sustained, targeted and effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantlement of terrorist capabilities and infrastructure."

That's EXACTLY what Israel is doing! It's right there in the Road Map, so why all the brouhaha?

Israel is only doing what the poorpalestinians were supposed to have done all by themselves, by May 2003. Since they didn't, or couldn't, Israel stepped up and is doing their dirty work for them.. for the betterment of the entire world.

That raises the question: just exactly how did the Quartet expect that Fatah would go about targeting terrorists and dismantling their infrastructure?

Probably pretty much the same way that Hamas targeted and dismantled Fatah, wouldn't you think?
