Update to yesterday's post:

Sorry everyone... imagine my embarrassment! I seem to have gotten it all wrong yesterday. *

My Bad.

Hat tip to Yasser Arafat for setting me straight on a few facts:

1. Even though his Fatah faction took credit for the bombing before the body parts and assorted hardware had stopped falling from the sky, apparently the bombing was an Israeli plot to discredit the Palestinians.

2. Killing a beautiful, intelligent teenaged soldier waiting at a bus stop was just a little bit too obvious a ploy for public sympathy and outrage. I should have noticed that right off the bat.

3. Arafat said: "We are against such kinds of bombings [sic]..." and asked that reporters ignore the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade members dancing in the street and passing out candy after the bombing.

4. Arafat added: "You know who is behind these acts, which are aimed at harming the court decision. Europe knows it, the Americans, the Egyptians, the Jordanians, and the Israelis also know it."

In light of this overwhelming and convincing evidence, I have to apologize for yesterday's outrageous journal entry. You have a right to expect more responsible blogging.

This is a good example of why I should leave politics to those with a better command of the facts, and just stick to more intimate stuff here at chez treppenwitz.
