A peaceful intifada?

Fatah is supposedly going to use a high-profile visit to the West Bank by Gandhi's grandson to kick off a targeted program of non-violent resistance to gain a stronger hand in the Palestinians' struggle with Israel.

This is the type of initiative that should have been launched after the first intifada; unfortunately, if history is any guide, Arafat is not capable of leading anything of this sorts.
