Two West Bank Palestinians were charged in an Israeli court with membership in Al-Qaida. The two residents of Nablus charged Tuesday are believed to be the first Palestinians charged with belonging to Al-Qaida. Azzam Abu Al-Ades and Bilal Hafanawi were arrested in December 2005 at the Allenby Bridge crossing between Jordan and the West Bank. They were allegedly on their way to carry out a terrorist attack.
