This isn't helping
Arafat hints Israel planted Tel Aviv bomb. A clear demonstration that the Palestinians could use some better leadership. Why? Because 10 times out of 10, that will make the headlines over substance that needs to be there. Arafat's conspiracy theories are taking badly needed attention away from facts. Facts:
Israeli tank fire killed four Palestinians in Gaza on Saturday and shot dead a teenage girl in Rafah.
In a separate incident, a pregnant Palestinian woman was shot by Israeli occupation troops in Bait Hanun.
On Monday morning, a handicapped Palestinian in his 70s was crushed to death when occupation forces demolished his home in the southern Gaza Strip.
