Great Punchline

One of my favorite email publications is "Best of the Web Today" by James Taranto, published by the Wall Street Journal. It takes a light-hearted look at key issues in the news with a strong conservative tongue firmly in their cheek.
I loved the punch line that they had at the end of the following article (think about it for a second)

West Bank Robbery
"An Israeli and a group of Palestinians last week set aside their differences in order to carry out an armed bank robbery, Palestinian police said," Agence France-Presse reports:

The heist at a bank in the West Bank town of Ramallah on Tuesday (local time) was carried out by six armed gunmen who made off with some $US30,000 . . . according to security officials.
Palestinian police Colonel Adnan al-Damiri says police arrested two Palestinians who confessed they carried out the robbery with three Palestinians living in Israel and an Israeli Jew.
The Israeli "was the mastermind of the operation and he also took part in it," before fleeing back to Israel, Mr Damiri said.

So let's see if we have this straight: An Israeli made a deal to cooperate with Arab crooks who were looking to loot the Palestinian territories.

Didn't he learn anything from the Oslo accords?
