IDF fires at Palestinian militants suspected of placing bombs along Gaza border
IDF forces opened fire on Monday at Palestinian militants who were suspected of placing explosive devices along the border fence in the northern Gaza Strip. Three militants were wounded, according to Palestinian sources.

According to medical sources in Gaza, the three sustained shrapnel wounds and were transferred to a nearby hospital.

Last week, Palestinian militants fired at Israeli security forces near the Gaza border and IDF forces fired back, killing two.

The most recent rocket attack on southern Israel occurred on Tuesday evening, after a recent escalation between Gaza militants and IDF forces. Some 30 rockets were shot toward Israel last week, resulting in the death of one Israeli and the wounding of four others.

2. The arab leadership has not been able to effectively govern after Israeli's disengagement
Until an effective arab leader, who is interested in statehood for his people rather than the destruction of Israel, this pattern will continue.

3. Effective for the Palestinians, or effective for Israel and its 'supporters' in the US?
Looking at what's happened when a leader who's interested in statehood for his people goes to the UN with such a request, it's a wonder Hamas aren't totally changing their ways pronto!!

4. Perfect example of arab instransigence
Excellent point, Because Abbas willfully refused to negotiate with Israel directly, he chose to do an end run and be granted all that he desired from the UN. Like Christmas in November.

5. why do you refer to Palestinians as generic arabs (lower case of course)
is it to.......let's see

make Palestinians part of a much larger group? would refer to say something going on in China as being simply asian?

Is it deny Palestinian nationality?

or is it a combination of the 2 plus stuff I did not think of?

in any event seeing as how the term Arab can apply to anyone who speaks Arabic as a first language your usage in this case raises questions, even your headline said Palestinian militants but then again it was Ha'aretz

6. Eh....just state the obvious already
Hamas and it's supporters wants to wipe out every Jew in Israel. That's why their not negotiating and Abbas doesn't want to piss off Hamas or he'll be dead.

It's in they books, in their media, in their rockets and in their refusal to negotiate.

Suddenly I miss Farfour , the jew hating , child indoctrinating mouse.
