The Scotsman gets carried away

The Scotsman reports:

On the ground, the condition of Palestinian civilians seems to be deteriorating further.... Israel is moving ahead with plans to make permanent a ban on Palestinian use of main roads in the West Bank.
This is untrue. In response to the recent drive-by shooting terrorist attack which killed three Israeli young people, the IDF temporarily restricted Palestinian traffic. As Israeli Vice Premier Shimon Peres stated, "There has been no decision on the separation of roads."

It's not just The Scotsman. Many newspapers have picked up the story. They're calling it "road apartheid." Search for that term in the news and you'll find many articles.

The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/israel/Story/0,2763,1596168,00.html

The NYT is a bit more balanced: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/19/international/middleeast/19cnd-mideast.html

This article says that there many eventuality be separate roads for Palestinians and Israelis. Well what else can be done?

"Meanwhile Wednesday, Palestinians threw a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli car traveling northwest of Ramallah near Dir Mashal. The bottle exploded on the road, and no one was injured. IDF forces swept the area in search of the perpetrators."

i made a bet with a friend, that after the guardian reporter is murdered (god forbid..i pray he lives) the guardian will blame israel.
