The Palestinian Authority (PA) is going to have a hard time wresting control of the streets from heavily armed terrorist groups, as demanded by the internationally-backed “roadmap” peace plan. In a symbolic act, armed militants planted their flags in abandoned settlements. "We should protect the resistance option and the resistance weapons," said Ismail Haniyeh, a leader of the Islamic terror group Hamas. "These weapons liberated the land, and by these weapons we will continue the liberation process.” Islamic Jihad leader Mohammed al-Hindi agreed. “Gaza is only the first step," he said. The next step is the "the liberation of Jerusalem and the West Bank."
