Palestinians Observe Ceasefire by Firing Two Rockets at Israel

Overcome no doubt by the generous spirit of the season, Palestinians gave Israel two more rockets today. On Sunday, the government of Ehud Olmert announced that it would continue its policy of not responding to Palestinian rocket attacks, a policy under which "ceasefire" means "we cease, they fire." To date, the Palesitinians have launched more than 50 rockets at Israel since the ceasefire broke out. But have no fear--as reported in the caption to the photo that accompanied this news story, the Olmert government plans to turn to the United Nations for assistance. "Israel will lodge an official complaint at the United Nations against ongoing Palestinian rocket fire from the Gaza Strip in defiance of a month-old ceasefire." I predict a U.N. resolution condemning Israel for not providing the Palestinians with more accurate targeting technology.
