Abbas shuts down gambling at Ricks
Arutz Sheva - Israel National News
: "(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) told a press conference several minutes ago that he has succeeded in disarming terrorist gangs. He did not refer to the Monday murders of three Israelis.
Abbas and President George W. Bush met reporters after an hour-long discussion. Abbas said terrorist organizations have accepted his demand not to hold public demonstrations with firearms and that their disarming will enable them to participate in PA elections. Hamas terrorist leaders, the major challenger to Abbas, have said they will not disarm, and eyewitnesses have reported that armed Hamas members patrol several areas in Gaza."
