A senior Palestinian security official praised the group behind most of the recent terror attacks against Israel. The Al Aksa Brigades, a militia of Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, has carried out most of the deadly suicide bombings and shootings in Israel and the West Bank in recent weeks. Security chief Jibril Rajoub, generally considered a moderate on the Palestinian spectrum, said Monday that the group represented “the noblest phenomenon in the history of Fatah.”
