Today's peaceful PalArab news

A Hamas member was killed and another wounded in Gaza City as they tried to arrest another man.

Six more Hamas bombs have been reported to have been found at al-Azhar University. There were a couple that exploded in empty rooms two weeks ago.

The Al Quds Brigades of Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the Qassam rocket that was shot at Sderot yesterday. Yet at the same time Islamic Jihad released a statement saying that Israel's response of closing the crossings had only a "flimsy justification" and asks the Palestinian Arabs to consider ending the "calm."

A video was released that is supposed to show how Hamas had Mohammed Helles of the Helles clan was alive and in custody of Hamas before he was shot dead in cold blood.

Today is the fifteenth anniversary, in the Islamic calendar, of the incident with Baruch Goldstein in Hebron. This is the first time I've ever seen Palestinian Arabs celebrate an anniversary using the Islamic calendar rather than the secular one. This way they can act as victims twice as often.

The 2008 PalArab self-death count is now 165.
