    not sure what to think about this. If the PA under Abbas is serious about fighting terrorists, they need the gear and the weapons. If they're not, it could hurt Israel. ugh, Putin laid a wreath at Arafat's grave.

    Check the trunk of that Russian APC, it's full of shoulder-fired SAMs.

    Seems to me the current threat to both Abbas and Israel is Hamas. The Palestinians are supporting their terror tactics in the voting booths:
