Hijacking the Intifada?

Middle East;Jan2005, Issue 352, p20
This article reports on Al Qaeda's widening infiltration of Lebanon and the prospects of the Palestinian Intifada being hijacked to promote terror. The demise of Yaseer Arafat who for four decades embodied the struggle for Palestinian statehood, may well ignite a potentially catastrophic power struggle that could forever wreck any prospect of an independent homeland, or it could break the impasse in the peace process with Israel. But there is another scenario with Arafat out of the picture there are opportunities for outside powers to intervene more forcefully in the Intifada, possibly even take it over and escalate the attacks on Israel, turning up the heat on the Jewish state.
