"... Still, Abbas must realize the danger of fanning the flames of violence. If the riots, which so far have been mostly restricted to smaller villages around Hebron, does indeed spread to cities such as Ramallah and Nablus and greater numbers of Palestinians take to the street, the situation could deteriorate into a third intifada.
There are more radical elements within Fatah which would like to see this happen as a means of usurping Abbas’s power.
Though there is little Abbas can do to stop the riots, he could rein in the Fatah leaders who are encouraging escalation...."
