Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World: "Palestinian Authority security forces in the Gaza Strip were placed on high alert on Wednesday following the execution - style assassination of General Moussa Arafat, the former commander of the PA's Military Intelligence, and a nephew of Yasser Arafat.

PA Interior Minister Nasser Youssef, who is in charge of the Palestinian security forces, announced the establishment of a special commission of inquiry to investigate the killing. 'This murderous crime constitutes a dangerous deterioration in the internal security situation and those responsible won't escape punishment,' Youssef said.

PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who strongly condemned the assassination, held a series of meetings in Gaza City with top security officials to discuss the repercussions of the assassination and ways of preventing a slide into further anarchy.

The pre-dawn assassination of Gen. Arafat, 66, is seen as a severe blow to Abbas's efforts to impose law and order in the Gaza Strip in the aftermath of the disengagement. Sources close to Abbas expressed fear that the killing would trigger bitter fighting between rival security chiefs and their organizations in the Gaza Strip."
You punk. I can't believe you make the "NEXT" button open in a new window. JERK!
