COMMON CAUSE: I am happy to see Ariel Sharon join forces with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in their effort to denounce the Geneva accords. What I find odd is that Sharon finds the real enemy in the struggle against terrorism--the Israel left. But I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend, right? (By the way, Sharon described the Accords as treacherous; Hamas and IJ called it a betrayal.)

Thousands of Palestinian militants protested in the Gaza Strip and West Bank on Friday against the Geneva Accords, calling the peace initiative a "betrayal."

"Foreign occupation is destined to be erased, as is the monstrous Geneva Agreement," Islamic Jihad chief Mohammed al-Hindi said during a mass Gaza rally called to denounce the document named after its Swiss mediators. "The cause of Palestine is a cause of refugees and any solution that does not secure our return will not be accepted," said a resident of Gaza's Jabalya camp which hosted the rally.
