Chairman Itzik Shadmi of the Binyamin Residents' Council played down on Thursday suggestions that Palestinian Authority Arabs have launched a new terror war (intifada) in Judea and Samaria.
"We don't have to bother ourselves excessively with it too much at the moment, but the IDF should prepare for such an option," Shadmi told Arutz Sheva.
Shadmi noted he is not worried by a possible takeover of Judea and Samaria by Hamas, similar to the terror group's bloody takeover of Gaza in 2007, saying, "At least this way we will recognize the enemy we already know. I'm more concerned by the Fatah people who masquerade as peace partners and one day, when they will be comfortable, they'll strike us."
He said that he believes a popular uprising will be stopped immediately. "The IDF must prepare for the option of eliminating this intifada within a few hours and the IDF can do it," he said.
Shadmi's comments come amid rioting by PA Arabs in Judea and Samaria and warnings that a new intifada is in the works.

He needs to create easy ways for people of good will from all around the world to both invest and donate directly to rebuilding the land of Israel.
"Ahead of his latest unilateral statehood bid at the United Nations, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is claiming that he will never allow a third intifada."
Abbas has constantly imposed preconditions on peace talks with Israel, demanding that Israel accept the indefensible pre-1967 lines as final borders, release all Arab terrorists from its jails, and halt construction in Judea, Samaria and east Jerusalem before talks begin. At the same time, he has refused to recognize Israels right to exist.
The IDF would do well to remember what the Lord directed King Saul to do: “Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”
