Self Rule for the Palestinians?

Looters raid Arafat’s home, steal Nobel Peace Prize.

The Jerusalem Post reports, "They stole almost everything inside the house, including Arafat’s Nobel Peace Prize medal .. they stole all the widow’s clothes and shoes."

Israel Matzav asks, "How much would you pay for a Nobel Peace Prize on E-Bay?"

"Sometimes humiliation isn’t something other people do to you as much as something you do to yourself. This was foreshadowed by the looting of the multi-million dollar greenhouses bequeathed to the Palestinian people. It continued with the bombing of the Internet cafes, the attacks on hospitals, the burning of music stores. It goes on every time delighted gunmen fire their automatic rifles in the air and are surprised to find the bullets eventually come down and kill somebody. Every time a 'militant' blows up a bridge, or a power pylon, an oil pipeline or a beautiful seaside resort, it is not a glorious event. That’s just the fantasy of an over-wrought journalist. Plainly speaking, it’s just another bullet in the foot."
