The National Religious Party debated whether to quit Israel’s government. The NRP’s Knesset faction convened Monday after its two ministers failed to vote down Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s plan to withdraw Israeli troops and settlers from the Gaza Strip and some of the West Bank.

Five Israeli Arabs will be charged with a terrorist attack. The alleged crimes of the five, who do not belong to a known terrorist group, include throwing a firebomb at a border police car in the Galilee and attempting to kidnap soldiers at a Haifa shopping center.
