Terror Attack Claimed by "Abd al-Qader al-Husseini Storm Troopers"

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Pinhas Inbari - After Naama and Eitam Henkin were murdered in front of their children, a group from Fatah, the "Abd al-Qader al-Husseini Storm Troopers," issued a statement claiming responsibility, even though the murder was actually carried out by a Hamas terror cell. The group is named after Abd al-Qader al-Husseini, commander of the "Holy Jihad" troops of the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, in the days of the British Mandate. In the struggle within Fatah to succeed Mahmoud Abbas, will the leadership that was in Tunisian exile with Arafat continue to hold the reins of power or will power be transferred to the Tanzim, Fatah's militant faction? The claim by the al-Husseini forces is a sign that now it's the turn of Fatah activists from the West Bank to take the reins of power from the Tunis leadership. The writer formerly reported for Israel Radio and Al Hamishmar newspaper.
