Israel Frees (some) Palestinian Prisoners

July 20th, 2007 § 0 comments § permalink

Israel has begun the release of a number of Palestinian prisoners in an effort to bolster Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, in his power struggle with Hamas.

Ian Domnitz, a spokesman for the prisons authority, said: “We have begun to free 256 prisoners, including six women.”

Israeli officials said 85 per cent of the prisoners being released were from the president’s Fatah faction.

The others are from smaller groups such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine [PFLP].

Now, what about the other 10,500 palestinians rotting in Israeli prisons?


Cash For Honours – No Charges

July 20th, 2007 § 0 comments § permalink

After 16 months of investigation the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is to drop the case of the government giving honours in return for donations.

How can that be? I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but something doesn’t seem right.


Update: This’ll be the reason why then.

The best comment I have seen about the recent calor gas cylinder-in-a-car-bomb attempts was this, from a motoring website, Honest John:

Subject: What Iritates You the Most?

Caravans, let’s not forget them.

Maybe the current vogue for inappropriate use of Calor gas cylinders may see them banned and the caravanning industry crumble to dust as a result. Every cloud…..
