The fighters flew above Mr Blairís civilian aircraft to indicate to the pilot that he was considered a suspect target, at which point he finally made contact. The pilot told them that he was carrying Mr Blair.
- now, was THAT a wise move....?

Why oh why can't those damned Israelis get anything right?

If the had shot the silly grin out of the sky, they could get away with anything they like for the next 50 years.

Next time, Moshe, eh? Don't miss.

And there was me hoping that a Palestinian would put a bullet between his b****y teeth, and it was nearly an Israeli.
