Good News Morning re Israel

Hello. Today seems to be a good news day for Israel (may this continue to be so). Israeli troops turned over control of Jericho to the Palestinians (with Tulkaram, Qalqiya and Bethlehem on the short list for future cities) and the effort to remove Syria from Lebanon moves forward. (Now we just need to do something about Hizbollah.)

Here are some net sources:

Ha’artez, “Israel to Hand Over Jericho Today”
New York Times, “Lebanon Flag Is Hoisted as Syrians Slip Away”
BBC (with its usual viewpoint), “Israel begins handover of Jericho”

UPDATE: Ha’aretz “Jericho handover delayed at last minute”
