I don't know how Ed O'Loughlin of the Age missed the opportunity to file this feel good story from the Palestinian Ma'an Newsagency - PALESTINIAN SECURITY RETURNS ISRAELI OFFICER 'LOST' IN JENIN.

It's all about how some friendly members of the Palestinian security services returned an Israeli officer who had mistakenly entered Jenin, in the northern West Bank. The civic minded cops saved the soldier from a grisly fate because apparently, when news spread in the city, dozens of furious Palestinian citizens rushed to the square and set the officer's car ablaze.

And all he did wrong was save this poor bloke from a lynch mob!
