Fox newsmen to be freed?

You've probably read the story about the kidnapped Fox news crew, Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig. Reports in the news today suggest that Centanni and Wiig will be released later today. More amazing than that, however, is this portion of the article:
Hamas officials told The Jerusalem Post that the kidnappers belonged to one of the armed wings of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party.
Let's think about this for a minute. The ruling party, Hamas, is a terrorist organization. The party of the Palestinian Authority President, Fatah, has armed wings, which essentially makes it a terrorist organization. Remember that when you think about who the Israelis are dealing with in the Middle East. They are not negotiating with freedom-loving Palestinians who only seek a homeland. They are dealing with "elected" terrorists.
