A terrorist who lives at least part-time in Arafat's Mukata compound in Ramallah is organizing suicide bombings - and the PA refuses to arrest him.

The story begins this past Thursday when the Shabak arrested a Fatah Al-Aksa terrorist in Ramallah named Assam. He told his interrogators that a double suicide attack was planned for the near future, to be carried out by two women from Shechem who were to pick up their explosives in Ramallah and detonated them on the pre-1967 side of the Green Line. Supervising the plan, according to Assam, is a terrorist named Kamal Anam, who has long been wanted by Israel for organizing shooting attacks that led to three Israeli deaths. Even before the release of the latest information, Israel asked the PA to arrest him; his whereabouts are known, yet the PA has not done so. Other terrorists involved in the planned attacks live in the Mukata.

It is assumed that the reason the above information was released so soon after it was obtained was to enable Prime Minister Sharon to show the Americans that the PA is doing little if anything to stop terrorism.
