Smiles and Sunshine 

Islamic Jihad says it is committed to a cease-fire. Oh really? Seems a bit contradictory, no? What bothers me most about this particular homicide bombing is that it comes amid a time of relative (very relative) calm. It's been five months since the last knuckle-head who blew himself in a public place. So what's the provocation here? Why now?

The chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, condemned the bombing. "We understand that those who carried out this attack want to sabotage the efforts being exerted to have a smooth and peaceful disengagement from Gaza and a revival of the peace process," he said.

Hey, man, I hear ya. Really. But, oh look. There's that substantial contigent (I'd call it a majority if I could show you the number) who want more... what do you call it? Ah, yes: dead Jews. And they won't stop. They will never put their guns down. Ever.

Isn't unity grand?
