PalArab media roundup 3-19-09

Two Fatah members were killed in Central Gaza in another apparent "work accident." Fatah said they were on a "special mission" and were killed by Israeli shells, but Israel denied any activity in the area.

Israel arrested ten Hamas leaders in the West Bank in an apparent attempt to use them as leverage for Gilad Shalit. Hamas responded that this endangers the life of Shalit, which effectively means that they are threatening to kill him. No comment yet from "human rights" organizations.

Have you noticed that none of the families of PalArab prisoners in Israeli prisons ever protest the Hamas government to release Shalit so their relatives could get released?

Members of the "World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace" have entered Gaza to distribute aid and try to teach Gazans about peace. I don't know much about them but they also visited Sderot and met with children there, so at least they have the appearance of being sincere.

Here is why autotranslation does not work well for sports stories:
a leading Jaisp - matches concluded yesterday, the fifth week in a deferred annexation of neighboring institution beer and Orthodox Ramallah in the Premier Basketball League, organized by the Union of the Palestinian basketball sponsored by a mobile terminal and the martyr Ibrahim Ahtdhantha Lion in Far'a In the meeting on the progress of the outcome of the Orthodox versus 66 49 of the beer was cool and the game was marked by tension and lack of excitement.
At least the beer was cool.

A an Arab baby was born in Hebron with some baby teeth; Palestine Today regards this as a miracle and says "praise God." Natal teeth occur in about 1 in every 2000 births and could indicate a problem.

The 2009 Palestinian Arab self-death count is now at 56.
