LONDON TIMES: "The Red Cross has shut down its field activities in the Gaza Strip because of growing lawlessness in Palestinian areas in the build-up to Israel’s pullout next week. The move came after a surge in kidnappings as powerful clans have seized Western hostages to use as bargaining tools in disputes with Mahmoud Abbas’s increasingly weak Palestinian Authority security forces."
Need I remind all of you that law enforcement in Gaza is the responsibility of the PNA (and NOT Israel)!? And these Arabs deserve another STATE of their own!? It'd be funny if it wasn't so stupidly, self-destructively dangerous. All Gaza will become is EVERYTHING that Taliban Afghanistan was, and everything Zarqawi wants to turn Iraq's al sunnah province into: a depraved domain of jihadoterror. As the wise man said: "HEY: Let's give them a state!" More HERE at BEAR TO THE RIGHT. AND WELCOME JAWA REPORT READERS!
