quote: RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - More than 300 members of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat's ruling Fatah movement resigned collectively on Saturday in protest against internal strife and a lack of reform, a statement said.
There were no leading figures among those who quit but the unusual step by rank-and-file members signaled an emerging power struggle between a more radical, younger generation and older leaders of the mainstream Palestinian national movement.
