Ezra blasts torching of officer's car Internal Security Minister Gideon Ezra said on Friday that the torching of the car belonging to the investigations and intelligence officer of the Judea and Samaria Police earlier in the day strengthened his conviction not to allow police officers to testify before the Knesset investigative subcommittee for the Amona evacuation. Ya'alon: I didn't disclose secrets Former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. (Res.) Moshe Ya'alon said Friday that he had not disclosed any military secrets by stating that that Western nations and Israel have the ability to launch a military strike that will set back Iran's nuclear program for many years. Bush: Ports deal collapse could hurt US President George W. Bush said the collapse of the Dubai ports deal could hurt US efforts to recruit Mideast governments as partners in the worldwide war on terror. 'US, Britain, Israel are axis of evil' Iraqi radical anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose militia, the Mahdi Army, has been accused by Sunni Muslims of, among other things, involvement in much of the sectarian violence after the Shi'ite shrine bombing February 22 in Samarra, said in a television interview Friday night that the United States, Britain and Israel were a "triad of evil," an obvious play on words Bush used in his 2002 State of the Union address to describe Iraq, Iran and North Korea as an "axis of evil." 'US pushing to isolate Hamas in PA' The United States is reportedly putting pressure on Fatah leaders as well as other potential opposition movements in the Palestinian Authority to refuse to participate in a Hamas-led government. Palestinian sources said that Washington even warned them that the US will cut off all relations with them if they enter the government that Hamas is currently trying to form.
