    RAMALLAH, West Bank - The Palestinian Cabinet on Monday asked the security forces to prevent attacks against Israel and ordered an investigation into a shooting at a Gaza crossing that killed six Israeli civilians last week, ministers said.

    "A decision was taken that we will handle our obligation to stop violence against Israelis anywhere," said Cabinet minister Saeb Erekat. He did not provide details.

    The new Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, is under growing pressure to take action against militants following last week's attack at the Karni crossing. Israel suspended ties with Abbas and U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) urged Abbas in a phone call Sunday to rein in the armed groups. ​

    I think Isreal was pretty smart to throw down the gauntlet immediately on this one. This guys got one chance to prove he wants peace and can deliver.
    If not?---same old crap again.
