Israeli assassination attempt kills 2 Palestinian civilians

Two Palestinians were killed in Gaza when an Israeli helicopter fired missiles at a Hamas member. That percentage just keeps going up.

The assassination attempt, incidentally, happened right as reports of a Hamas-Jihad-Fateh ceasefire started coming out. Surely a coincidence in timing. Hamas sopkespersons later said that no official ceasefire had been reached.

Bush, for his part, more or less rejected the reported cessation of violence by militant groups:
"I'll believe it when I see it, knowing the history of terrorists in the Middle East".
He does have a point there. The history of earlier terrorist groups in the Middle East - like the Stern Gang and Irgun - indicate that their violence may not even end with the establishment of a state, much less a puny ceasefire.
