      Pensioners' affairs minister: Nations may need to temporarily rule
      territories due to PA's inability to fight terror.

      Egypt and Jordan may have to temporarily take control of the Gaza
      Strip and the West Bank due to the Palestinian leadership's inability
      to curb terror activity in its territories, Pensioners' Affairs
      Minister Rafi Eitan, a member of the security cabinet, said on
      Tuesday.

      "The Palestinians don't have the internal ability to overpower the
      terrorist bodies within them. More and more, the Palestinians are
      losing their ability and entitlement to [establish] an independent
      Palestinian state," Eitan told Army Radio.

      Eitan's statements come at a time when Egypt and Jordan are becoming
      more involved in providing for the needs of the Palestinian
      population.

      Egypt is reportedly considering supplying the besieged Gaza Strip
      with electricity.

      Meanwhile, the West Bank town of Jericho was recently connected to
      the Jordanian electric grid, for the first time since the Six Day
      War.

      Egypt has also found it difficult to maintain the integrity of its
      border with Gaza, with hundreds of thousands of Palestinians crossing
      unchecked between the two territories over a period of 12 days in
      January and February.
