Fatah Central Committee member Muhammad Dahlan on Sunday warned that while the Palestinians did not want to begin a third intifada, riots in Jerusalem would not end as long as 'settlers' were allowed to enter the Temple Mount compound. "The riots will not end as long as [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu continues sending settlers to pray at al-Aksa Mosque," Dahlan told Israel Radio. However, Dahlan stressed that the Palestinians were not interested in a third intifada or in clashes with IDF soldiers. The Fatah official went on to draw a comparison between suicide attacks and the establishment of West Bank settlements, saying there is no difference between blowing up a bus in Tel Aviv and stealing Palestinian lands.
