Has the Israeli government lost leave of its senses? Otherwise, we find it hard to understand this:
"Israel agreed to extensive training of members of the Presidential Guard of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in areas near Jericho, in the Jordan Valley....
The request for Israel to permit such extensive training was made through the Americans. Prior to this, Israel agreed to the transfer of thousands of rifles and ammunition to Abbas' Presidential Guard. The serial number of each weapon was registered in order to maintain at least minimal control over the weapons."
Not that the American government is doing any better for U.S. domestic security with this 24-hr amnesty madness.
Pathetic on all fronts.
