NABLUS (Ma'an) -- For the third time in two weeks, Israeli forces on Tuesday stopped the convoy of interim Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah as he was traveling in the occupied West Bank.

Local sources told a Ma'an reporter that Hamdallah was detained for 45 minutes at the checkpoint near the District Coordination Office at the entrance to Ramallah.

The convoy was coming from Nablus in the northern West Bank.

On January 14, Israeli police officers stopped Hamdallah's convoy twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

The first time was near the Ramallah area village of Turmusayya.

A heated argument broke out between Hamdallah and Israeli officers at that time, and as a result the prime minister swore at an Israeli officer calling him "a dog standing in occupied territory."

Hamdallah did not leave until an officer apologized to him.

In response, Israeli police said Hamdallah's convoy was stopped because it was driving "recklessly and endangering other road users."

Twelve hours later, the convoy was stopped again on its way back to Nablus.

Israeli soldiers stationed at Zaatara checkpoint near Nablus stopped the convoy and asked for ID cards of everybody.

A spokesperson for the Palestinian government Ehab Bseiso said that nobody in the convoy responded and they instead continued on their way.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

And the "Authority" continues to pretend it is an "Authority" when it fact it serves as a Butler for the Occupation.

1- The State of Israel breaks promises to the Palestinian Authority, No More than the Palestinian Authority breaks promises made to the State of Israel.
2- International recognition of "Palestinian territories" is meaningless, and
3- The one UN member state and one UN Non-member, authority-"state"
will have to solve this dispute between themselves, or
* EXPECT THE (1-State/No-State) SITUATION TO REMAIN UNCHANGED.

Ghada #2 - would palestinian premier feel better if he is stopped by veterans of Israeli army, but not a youngsters? Did he forget that Israel has control over West bank area C and shares with PA control over West bank area B? And the article is missing the main point - did Hamdallah have a valid ID card with him or he forgot it at home? Or may be he forgot to renew the ID card or did not pay renewal fee? There are a lot of questions should be answered.

#3 If I close my eyes (like you do) I see Palestinians are having 400 nukes, 6000 tanks, 200 F16s etc. Dream on.

It's great that the Zionists are so self-destructive. If you want an effective puppet regime, you have to at least PRETEND to respect its leaders. Actions like this make it pyschologically impossible for the PA to find its way to any strategy but one of renewed resistance. See post #1. Visibly humiliating the PA is the worst possible choice Israel could make.

Really, this is great stuff. As someone who is quite certain Israel has no right to exist at all, it's good to see her engaging in such manifestly self-destructive behavior. What I dread -- and what might well prolong things beyond my own lifetime -- is an Israel that behaves rationally and intelligently. If she can keep behaving like this, I should see a Palestine that is free from the river to the sea before I die.

Does this guy drive like a maniac? Apparently he has a need for speed. Ever since he got the free Mercedes.

#8 He doesn't drive anywhere. He is chauffeured around just like all presidents and prime ministers. And the car he uses is not his. It stays with the position, not with the person.
