Palestinian civil servants threatened Sunday to paralyze the West Bank and Gaza Strip by bringing employees of the petroleum authority into their strike and drying up local fuel supplies if the government does not pay them. "In our hands are cards that have not been used yet," said Ahmad Assaf, a spokesman for the Union of Civil Servants. The strikers, many of them supporters of the opposition Fatah movement, said they had stopped work for 36 days but had seen no tangible results. Assaf said they were considering inviting the fuel workers into the strike.
