(…) Avi Melamed, who served for 15 years as an Israeli intelligence official and senior advisor on Arab affairs in various field and headquarters roles, has pointed to the Lions’ Den’s refusal to identify with any of the established Palestinian forces as one of the central reasons for the group’s growing popularity.

He says that refusal to align with other existing terror groups is an early indicator of the possible emergence of new political groups to represent the growing numbers of those disenfranchised from the current Palestinian Authority leadership.

Melamed founded Inside The Middle East, a nonprofit organization devoted to providing an apolitical non-partisan education and knowledge about the Middle East.
