Morning headlines

A Palestinian Arab terrorist commandeered a bulldozer and went on a rampage in Jerusalem, killing 3 or 4 and injuring dozens before he was killed.

The group Freedom for Galilee Brigades claimed responsibility, but they have a penchant for lying.
----------------
One Palestinian Arab newspaper describes the episode of female mega-terrorist Dalal Mughrabi as a "stain on the conscience of Palestinian leaders" - but it isn't because of her terror attacks. It is because they hadn't demanded her body years ago.
----------------
The Iraqi president apologized for shaking hands with Ehud Barak earlier this week. Apparently, it is OK for Palestinian Arabs to shake hands with Zionists, but not for any other Arabs.
----------------
A Fatah-linked organization, translated as "The Storm Hawks," claimed responsibility earlier this week for the rocket attack on Sderot on Monday. The Al Aqsa Brigades now denies that this group is part of Fatah.
-----------------
There are reports that people are storming the Rafah crossing from Gaza.
-----------------
I had missed this story about the smuggling of rare Jewish manuscripts from Iraq to Israel. Although these priceless works were confiscated by Saddam Hussein, the current Iraqi government is very upset that these manuscripts - many of which were damaged during the Gulf War - are leaving Iraq.
