This morning's Palestinian Arab news

Al Azhar's Sheikh Tantawi, still smarting over the withering criticism for his handshake with Shimon Peres, decided it is best not to visit a meeting of imams and rabbis in France. He also refuses to go to Iran, which is probably a very smart move.

Hamas leaders have decided to stay out of sight, fearing Israeli assassination attempts.

Islamic Jihad declared that Israeli "settlers" must not be allowed to sleep as long as Gazan children are "without electricity or medicine." His definition of "settler," obviously, includes all citizens of Israel within the Green Line.

Speaking of Islamic Jihad, here's a nice picture from their unofficial newspaper showing five terrorists praying before shooting rockets meant to kill Zionist women and children.
