ABBAS RESIGNS....Mideast news:

Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, increasingly unpopular and worn out by a power struggle with Yasser Arafat, resigned today. Within hours, Israel launched a missile strike against top Hamas leaders, including its founder.

I think that one paragraph pretty well encapsulates half a century of Middle East history. Sad.
