THE PALESTINIAN CONTRIBUTION TO THE PEACE EFFORT

Palestinians kill 4 Israelis on eve of peace talks.

JERUSALEM – Palestinian gunmen opened fire Tuesday on an Israeli car in the West Bank and killed four passengers. The Islamic militant group Hamas claimed responsibility.

Assailants firing from a passing car riddled the vehicle with bullets as it traveled near Hebron.

One of the victims was pregnant, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. Israel’s national rescue service said the victims were two men and two women, everyone in the car was killed.

About 3,000 people joined a rally in Gaza to celebrate the attack.

It was a drive by spray of bullets. A semi-random attack, any Jew will do. That’s grass roots political participation, Palestinian style.

A Google search turned it up in all the major media except the New York Times! But it may be there somewhere, perhaps on the sports page.
