The PA Leaves it Citizens Behind the Times

On the lighter side of things, here's a short AFP item:
JERUSALEM, March 27 (AFP) - Israel is to move the clocks ahead by one hour,to GMT +3, early Friday, the Interior Ministry said Thursday.

At 1:00 am local time on Friday (2300 GMT Thursday), clocks in Israel will go forward by one hour to enter into daylight-saving time, or summertime.

The West Bank and Gaza Strip, however, will remain in wintertime, GMT +2, until the Palestinian Authority decides to change the clocks. Since the beginning of the first intifada, or Palestinian uprising which started in 1987, the Palestinians have refused to change their clocks at the same time as the Israelis.
