This crossed my mind (the killing of a settler family makes no sense as an act of national liberation):
"An Asian worker is suspected of the murder of the Fogel family, a settler family from Itamar settlement near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to Palestinian press sources.
Quds Net news quoted local residents from the area that he was infuriated with an Israeli settler for not paying him his wages carried out the killing of the settler’s family in Itamar, Palestinian press sources reported.
Quds Net news agency on Monday quoted a Palestinian family from Awarta village next to the settlement as saying that Mr. Fogel refused to pay 10,000 shekels in wages which he owed an Asian worker he hired. The worker threatened to kill the settler and his family.
The worker is suspected of committing the crime after midnight Friday using a knife then fleeing the scene to nearby Palestinian villages, the report added.It noted that the Israeli army knows of the information leading to the suspect  but refuse to announce or deal with it for political as well as security reasons."
"Unbelievable racism, hate-talk, from Prime Minister Sharon’s son":  "The only thing that needs to be added is that recently, the young Sharon has joined Kadima – a supposedly center-left party led by Tzipi Livni."

"5 Somali pirates get life for attack on Nicholas" Now pirates will have to kill all possible witnesses.

So, were the Saudis doing what Gates told them to do, or using the opportunity of his visit to make it look like they were doing what he told them to do? The latter seems uncharacteristically clever of them.

"The 'Democracy Council' And The 'Green Movement'"  The smoking-gun memo proving that the Americans are actively supporting the Green Movement in Iran.  Much more on the sloppy Democracy Council here.  Of course, the Green Movement is so spectacularly unsuccessful because Iranians know who is behind it.
