Those "dismantled" Al Aqsa Brigades keep popping up

How many times have we heard that the moderate PA has managed to dismantle the Fatah-affiliated Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigades, consolidated their security forces and made all terror groups illegal?

The first such announcement dates all the say back to 2007.

Somehow, however, they keep on popping up.

Just today the Al Aqsa Brigades announced that if Israel resumes construction in Jewish communities across the Green Line, they will "respond" and will teach Jews in the territories "unforgettable lessons."

They also claimed a shooting attack against a 9-months pregnant woman and her husband.

Isn't it strange that a supposedly banned and dismantled group, anathema to the "new" law-and-order PA, is still alive and kicking? Or perhaps it means that Fatah is not quite as moderate as they pretend to be when speaking to Western reporters?
