The Israeli right-wing extremists in my last post probably have an ally in the Palestinian extremists, who are as much opposed to peace as they are. As suicide bombings are difficult to carry out because of though Israeli security, and Qassams are causing too little damage and fear to the taste of the terrorists, Palestinian militants now tried to kidnap Israeli girls in the territories:


Palestinians tried to kidnap two Israeli girls at the Rechalim Junction, near the West Bank town of Nablus, on Thursday. Israel Defense Forces troops and police officers searched the area, and arrested the three would-be abductors.
The three armed Palestinians pulled up to a hitchhiking station near the settlement of Rechalim, where the two young women were standing. They exited the vehicle and tried to force one of the girls, Amona Shahar, into the car.
She fought them off, suffered a light head wound, and fled. The other girl waiting at the hitchhiking station ran away and used her cellular phone to alert security forces.

As this took place in the West Bank, it falls within the 'resistance' that is called legitimate by so many opponents of the occupation. After all, these girls should not have been there in the first place, so they should not complain. The Prisoners Document, which is falsely understood as recognizing Israel and denouncing terrorism (sorry, resistance) in Israel proper, calls merely 'to focus the resistance to the occupied territories' and doesn't say anything about attacking civilians being wrong, let alone civilians who are in the West Bank. President Abbas, who always said to be against violence, supports the Prisoners Document and never said that he disagrees with the part about resistance.

According to a recent poll, almost 80% of the Palestinian population supports this view on the 'resistance':

79.5% from among respondents support the item in the Prisoners' Document which calls for the right of the Palestinian people in resistance and in clinging to the various means of resistance and which calls for concentrating resistance in the 1967 occupied territories alongside with political action, negotiations, diplomatic action and the continuation of popular and mass resistance against the occupation in its various forms, policies and places of existence.

This is the 'moderate approach', to which Hamas objects for it being too conciliatory towards Israel.

Militants detained after trying to kidnap Israeli girls

By Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondent

Palestinians tried to kidnap two Israeli girls at the Rechalim Junction, near
the West Bank town of Nablus, on Thursday. Israel Defense Forces troops and
police officers searched the area, and arrested the three would-be abductors.

The three armed Palestinians pulled up to a hitchhiking station near the
settlement of Rechalim, where the two young women were standing. They exited
the vehicle and tried to force one of the girls, Amona Shahar, into the car.
She fought them off, suffered a light head wound, and fled. The other girl
waiting at the hitchhiking station ran away and used her cellular phone to
alert security forces.

A short while later, the commander of the IDF company that serves in the
region noticed Shahar bleeding at the station and approached her. She relayed
what had transpired, but did not know that her friend had fled, and it was
feared that the latter had been kidnapped.

The men, who had a loaded gun, were caught adjacent to the Shilo junction. The
company commander forced them to get out of the car.

The three, apparently residents of Jenin, were detained and transferred to
police for questioning. They had were carrying a loaded gun.

One of the girls who had been waiting at the hitchhiking station, 14, told
Israel Radio that she has been hitchhiking since she was in sixth grade.
