Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has tendered his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas.
“Victims of Our Own Narratives” was the title of a recent handout given to journalists filling two rooms -- one in Jerusalem and the other at the Press Club in Washington, DC. Headlines were quick to follow stating that the problem of incitement in Israeli and Palestinian school textbooks is over. However, wishful thinking aside, it is not.
Both Israeli and Palestinian schoolbooks largely present one-sided narratives of the conflict between the two peoples and tend to ignore the existence of the other side, but rarely resort to demonization, a State Department-funded study released Monday said.
The Palestinian self-rule government is close to being "completely incapacitated," largely because Arab countries haven't delivered hundreds of millions of dollars in promised aid, Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said in an interview Sunday.
The Palestinian prime minister pulled out of a planned meeting with Israel's leader on Tuesday, torpedoing what was set to be the highest-level talks between the sides in nearly two years.
Israeli troops raided two private Palestinian TV stations before dawn Wednesday, seizing transmitters and other equipment, the military said.

The Palestinian prime minister dissolved his Cabinet in an emergency meeting on Monday in what appeared to be a gesture inspired by unrest rocking the Arab world.
Palestinians will be ready for statehood by August, as promised in a two-year action plan, Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said in an interview Tuesday, dismissing a host of steep obstacles to independenc
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced Wednesday that the U.S. would give the Palestinian Authority an additional $150 million in direct aid.
BETHLEHEM, West Bank - As a truck bomb exploded at a Gaza border crossing, Palestinians yesterday held a conference in a gleaming convention center to encourage investment in spite of the political and security risks.
RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad warned yesterday that a regional summit backed by President Bush could backfire if it fails to advance prospects of an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty, with consequences throughout the region.
"There has been a massive deterioration in the economy, and commerce cannot flourish under the special situation we're going through," Mr. Fayyad, a former World Bank economist, said at the conference. "This will still take some more time to address."
Mr. Fayyad said more patience is necessary before Gaza and its population of 1.4 million can become beneficiaries of the influx.
