Abbas shows some spine

"The Palestinian Authority will not tolerate any actions that will sabotage the agreement reached with Israelis on a mutual cease-fire," said Hassan Abu Libdeh, secretary of the Palestinian Cabinet. Abbas and Sharon both pledged Tuesday to stop all attacks and offensive military measures after 4½ years of fighting.

"These are very dangerous developments, and they violate the legitimacy of the Palestinian Authority," Abu Libdeh said.

The mass dismissals have no precedent in the 10 years since the Palestinian Authority was established, though security forces have routinely failed to stop attacks on Israel. Analysts said Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen, had been looking for a pretext to reshuffle his security chiefs.

While this is not exactly taking the game to the terrorists it at least shows willing. Taking out the remarkably corrupt and wildly inefficient "security" people the Troll of RamallahTM had in place is a decent first step to actually, er, taking on the terrorists.

I remain sceptical, but this is another hopeful sign.
