(San Jose Mercury News, subheadline): Palestinians Assist Rescue Operation [of abducted Israeli cab driver Eliahu Gorel]
: There is no definitive evidence showing the Palestinian Authority took any part in the rescue. In fact, major media outlets reported just the opposite, namely, that despite official Israeli demands that the Palestinians assist in the search for the abducted cabbie, no such help was forthcoming. (See, for example, New York Times, July 16, 2003).
