Story I Missed Over the Weekend

Holy Crap! Over the weekends, I read my local paper front-to-back, but generally skip any other sources. Anyone have any guesses as to why this story didn't make a blip:

The Aksa Martyrs Brigades announced on Sunday that its members have succeeded in manufacturing chemical and biological weapons.

Those would be the Palestinians.

According to the statement, the first of its kind, the group has managed to manufacture and develop at least 20 different types of biological and chemical weapons.

The group said its members would not hesitate to add the new weapons to Kassam rockets that are being fired at Israeli communities almost every day. It also threatened to use the weapons against IDF soldiers if Israel carried out its threats to invade the Gaza Strip.

"We want to tell [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert and [Defense Minister Amir] Peretz that your threats don't frighten us," the leaflet said.

As a commenter on Aces's site (who gets the H/T) called them: Stupidest people on the planet.
