Peaceful PalArab weekend

There are ten days fo the year that Muslims can have exclusive access to the second-holiest Jewish site in the world, the Cave of the Patriarchs. They used one of those days last Friday to urinate in the area of where the Torah scrolls usually are and to place Hamas flags throughout the synagogue. (Nothing about this in even the mainstream Israeli papers, only Arutz-7.)

Israel informed the UK that five British "charity" organizations are fronts for Hamas and will be banned in Israel.

Hamas keeps arresting doctors in Gaza.

Three more smuggling tunnels found and destroyed by Egypt.

Hamas claims that Israel killed 2 PalArabs in August. They are lying. The PCHR, which leaves no stone unturned looking for supposed Israeli abuses, reported zero killings. Hamas didn't provide any names nor circumstances.

The Al Aqsa Brigades of Fatah claimed to have exploded a bomb near the town of Itamar on Saturday.

Some questions are being raised about a Hamas member who died in late August, supposedly of a heart attack during training. Some people think that he may have been killed. He was responsible for an assassination attaempt against Mahmoud Abbas.

There is a controversy in Egypt over whether actors and actresses are permitted to kiss on-screen during Ramadan.
