Arafat and the Militants

This article from the Lebanon Daily Star details Arafat's intervention to secure the release of the PA's governor in Jenin who had been accused of collaboration with Israel and kidnapped by militants. Arafat apparently has enough influence with the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades to get them to release a governor, but not to stop terrorism. Of course by reputation the AMB are pretty loosely organized, so I might be making too much of this. Also interesting from the article is a Palestinian protest against militants last Thursday in Nablus.
