This article by Cameron W. Barr in the Christian Science Monitor casually reports as fact the tired allegation that Israel's killing of Hamas leader Salah Shehade "scuttled a hard-fought diplomatic effort to negotiate an agreement among all Palestinian factions to renounce attacks on Israeli civilians within Israel proper, and led to more violence."
(good article on this topic here, previous entry on this here).

Relying heavily on anonymous sources, Barr also says that the Palestinians have decided to switch to tactics of non-violent resistance, but that this change is not visible because the IDF is still present in Palestinian areas; and anyway this invisible tendency won't last because Sharon is such a butcher and also because Hamas et al really just want to erase Israel from the map.

How loopy can can you get?
