Israel-Palestine Summit

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas are holding their first official meeting in Jerusalem, according to Yahoo News. An official said that the Israeli government will do several things in an attempt to show goodwill and strengthen moderate Palestinian factions, possibly including removing some roadblocks in the West Bank and reducing travel restrictions. Also, Olmert may also return some of the tax revenue Israel collects at border crossings, which has been witheld since Hamas came to power in March.

Since the November 26 ceasefire, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have fired over 45 rockets at Israel, though they have killed no one.

    And in the week of 14 – 20 December Israel killed 9 Palestinians, including one child.

  2. Agent KGB Says:

    And total 119 Palestinians children have been killed. 😦 It’s incredible how infrequently it’s reported.

  3. mas Says:

    It’s not reported, or under-reported at best, because the fact the Palestinians are fighting an occupation by Israel and that Israeli policy and actions are illegal is “taboo” in this country.
