“Palestinian security forces in the West Bank recently arrested a Hamas cell that planned a suicide attack in Israel, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said Monday.

The announcement came a week before US President George W. Bush visits the region to promote peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinians are eager to prove that they are fulfilling their obligation to the road map plan to crack down on terrorists as a precondition for final-status negotiations with Israel.”

We shall see, I don’t believe however, that it will be too long before that other shoe drops.
