Another, no less interesting feature of the mosaic, are the words “Shalom (peace) on Israel” which are inscribed on it. At first, researchers thought the thieves had...

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat is dictating to the PA a policy intended to buy time until the US elections in November, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom told the cabinet Sunday. Shalom said Arafat's hope is that the results of the elections will create a new political situation that, with the assistance of the European Union, will allow him to improve his international position and make him once again a viable Palestinian negotiating partner. Shalom said he opposes recent UN and EU initiatives to give Arafat "freedom of movement." In my opinion," Shalom told the cabinet, "the only freedom of movement...
