Angry Palestinians Lash Out at Militants — This is a good sign. Some Palestinians are actually taking a stand against suicide attacks and demonstrating against them. While I don't want to see a civil war, if people turn to non-violent means (or relatively non-violent, like the rock-throwing of the first intifada) they could shame Israel into changes of policy. Using guns and bombs just hardens the Israeli populace against Palestine. While this isn't a move to non-violent demonstrations against Israel, it at least is a move away from violent attacks on them.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
