Zeevi's killing, Israel has said it would act against the Palestinian
Authority just the same way as the US is acting against the Taleban for

Will the real Osama please stand up?
There are two Osamas. The first is the one he has invented for himself and
his followers, the Holy Warrior for Islam who has become an idol to perhaps
