Peaceful PalArab news

I'm not certain if it is the same one, but apparently the synagogue that the Arabs are so upset about is being built 100 meters away from the Dome of the Rock, in the Cotton Market. So the "extremist Jews" will have to expand it through a few dozen businesses before getting close to the mosque, but it is enough for the PalArabs to make a worldwide call to stop the construction and claim that it will cause "structural damage" to the mosque.

Islamic Jihad announced that they shot 8 rockets at Israel in recent days, including one today to Sderot and two towards Ashkelon.

Two shops, a pharmacy and a cafeteria were blown up in Gaza by rival fighting PalArab families.

We mentioned last week about a Tel Aviv trade show, sponsored by the Peres Center for Peace, to help Palestinian Arab high-tech companies do business in Israel. Well, a prominent Nablus official isn't happy about it and wants the Palestinian Arabs to boycott any companies that participate. Sami Al-Sadr wants to publish a blacklist of the names of the companies and will lobby the PA to launch an investigation of this terrible crime of cooperating with Israelis.
