Police suspect Israeli Arabs were inside two explosives-laden cars that blew up in northern Israel after a peace deal was signed with the Palestinians, security sources said Monday. If the suspicions prove correct, it would be the first time that Arab citizens of Israel have been so directly involved in an apparent car bombing, security experts said.

Terror in all its forms Re: "Uneasy in Oklahoma," April 18 It is so important to commemorate this tragedy, to show the world how horrific and completely unacceptable terrorism is. Terrorism kills and maims innocent people. We can never say enough how wrong and condemnable terrorists are, with their twisted logic and sick, self-righteous beliefs. We need to remember the Oklahoma City bombing, the twin towers and the murders of Dr. George Tiller, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Kennedy, to name a few. We need to admonish and correct any leaders who support or give credence to acts of violence that target those we don't agree with.

In response to "7 Israelis Killed in Suicide Bombing," April 7: What does it take to make a massacre? Killing of Arabs qualifies, but apparently killing of Jews does not. Is it any wonder that Jews question the objectivity of the news media? In all their reporting, last month's events in Hebron are repeatedly referred to as the "Hebron massacre," while on April 6 Jews were "killed when a car exploded," almost as though it were nobody's fault. Then, these killings are reported as "retaliation" for the Hebron attack, while the latter seemed to come out of the clear blue--not as a frustrated response to the murders of hundreds of Jews by Palestinians in a continuing genocidal war by the Palestinians against the Jews.

Syria has told fellow Arab countries that it will not permit an International Atomic Energy Agency probe to extend beyond a site bombed by Israel, despite agency interest in three other suspect locations, diplomats said Tuesday. The agency's main focus during its June 22-24 visit to Syria is a building in the country's eastern desert that was destroyed by Israeli jets in September. IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei announced Monday that Damascus had agreed to an agency check of U.S.

A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up in front of a popular fast-food restaurant Monday, killing nine other people, injuring nearly 60 and greatly heightening hostilities between Israel and the new Hamas-dominated Palestinian government. It was the first such attack in Israel since Hamas took power nearly three weeks ago, and the Islamist group infuriated Israel by describing the bombing as a form of self-defense.

The United States said Monday that Israel probably violated an agreement on its use of U.S.-made cluster bombs in July's war with Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon. "There were likely violations," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. The State Department said it had delivered a classified preliminary report to Congress on Monday. McCormack declined to say how Israel violated U.S. rules, contending that such information was classified.

Mohamed ElBaradei, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, told the board of governors in Vienna that a team of inspectors would travel to Syria on June 22 to investigate the site.

Lashed by criticism from within Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction over his negotiating stance toward Israel, Mahmoud Abbas threatened to resign as prime minister, senior Palestinian officials said Tuesday. The threat was a symptom of some of the bitterest infighting to break out among Palestinians since the U.S.-backed peace initiative was agreed to more than five weeks ago.

Motti Mizrahi groans and clenches his teeth. "Wait, wait!" he hisses to the therapist, whose expert form of torture is to push, lift and stretch Mizrahi's mangled arm. He lowers his lifeless limb, encased in a spiked contraption meant to hold the slowly re-fusing bones in place. He sighs, inhales and tries again. Four months have gone by since Mizrahi was critically wounded in a Palestinian suicide bombing at a Jerusalem cafe where he was chatting with a friend.

Israeli troops battled thousands of demonstrators in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on Friday as the militant Hamas movement pledged to start a new bombing campaign inside Israel. At least eight Palestinians were killed in the clashes. Hamas, which had been largely on the sidelines during more than a week of violence in the Palestinian territories and Israel, turned out hundreds of its supporters in mass demonstrations in the Gaza Strip.
