Jpost: Allenby blast kills 5, wounds 60

This report seems to contain the same old stuff--except that five more people are dead, along with three over the weekend, and dozens injured.

The PM "holds the PA responsible." Well, that's what he says. But when a civilized nation holds someone responsible for mass murder, don't they do something other than mouth words? Like put the responsible parties in prison and try them for murder? What is it that makes Arafat immune to such proceedings? His $10 billion bank account, which has not been mentioned by any major media since its discovery?

Isn't it time to do something different? It disgusts me that Arafat's calculated mouthings are now earning him credit, just as Saddam's "invitation to inspect" makes all the Europeans and the UNgodly Nations say, "Oh, see--he really wants to comply!" In a word: Fooey.
