PalArab news roundup 5-8-09

A Chinese newspaper reported that Hamas was ready to sign a ceasefire with Israel today, but this was strongly denied by Hamas.

An 18-month old girl in Khan Younis was shot in the head during a "family dispute," seriously injuring her.

The consensus among Palestinian Arab observers is that the Hamas member who was "martyred during a special Jihad mission" yesterday was really murdered in Hamas infighting.

The PA quasi government is gearing up to celebrate Nakba Day on May 14, the anniversary of something or other. It is interesting that they never commemorate the anniversary of Jordan's annexation of the West Bank.
