Gunmen kill settler family during Gaza vote

Palestinian gunmen have killed five settlers, a mother and four daughters, in an attack on an access road to a Jewish enclave in the Gaza Strip.

The violence erupted as members of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Lukid Party voted on his controversial plan to evacuate the territory.

An Israeli army spokesman said an eight-month pregnant woman and her four daughters, aged two to 11, were ambushed while in their car on the corridor road between Israel and Gush Katif, the main Gaza settlement cluster.

Tali Hatuel, 34, and daughters Meirav, Hila, Hadar and Roni were on their way to campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to abandon Jewish settlements like the one where they lived at Gush Katif.

It was the first such killing in Gaza since December 2002, when a Gush Katif settler was ambushed on the same road.

The two gunmen were shot dead by Israeli troops shortly afterwards.

Two Palestinian militant groups, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees, claimed joint responsibility for the killings in a telephone call to Reuters.

Mr Sharon has described the killings as an attempt by the Palestinians to sabotage his plan to "disengage" from the Gaza Strip.

"The terrible murder in Gush Katif is a brutal crime against civilians and children," Mr Sharon said in a statement.ReferendumUS President George W Bush has provided unprecedented guarantees to the plan for "disengagement" from conflict with Palestinians.

But settlers in Gaza have mounted a strong "no" campaign, saying pulling out would be a "reward to terror".

Polls before the vote predicted defeat in what would be an embarrassing blow to the historic move.

Sunday's killing of settlers could harden "no" sentiment, but also lend credit to the "yes" camp which sees Gaza as more trouble than it is worth.

The referendum of right-wing Likud's 193,000 members is not binding and Mr Sharon's aides say that even if his plan is rejected he will present it to his Cabinet and to Parliament.

But a "no" decision will deter sceptical Likud ministers and parliamentarians from backing the plan.

A "yes" could also be problematic, risking a schism in Likud, defection of pro-settler nationalist coalition partners and early elections.

Mr Sharon made an 11th-hour appeal for passage of his plan while heading to the weekly Cabinet meeting.

"(It) will determine if Israel makes progress in all realms Valentino of life - security, economy, education, employment and its relationship with the United States - or rolls backward," he said before the vote.

Mr Sharon's unilateral scheme also entails holding on to larger West Bank settlement blocs containing the majority of Jews on territory Israel occupied in the 1967 Middle East war.Opinion pollsNationwide opinion polls favour Mr Sharon's initiative, showing a majority of Israelis convinced tiny Gaza is a violence-ridden liability they should get rid of. Mr Sharon has considered a national referendum to push his plan through.

Two internal Likud polls released just before the referendum affirmed others that found majorities against Sharon's bid to remove all 21 Gaza enclaves and four of 120 in the West Bank.

"We know the Arabs well, Valentino Shoes we can't give up a grain of land. Today they get a finger and tomorrow they'll want the entire hand," said Gad Cohen, 60, as he cast his ballot.

"People are voting based on their emotions," countered Yoram Gamish, 41, as he voted.

"It's not that I'm happy to give up land, but I don't think we need Gaza. Keeping settlers there just intensifies Palestinian hatred."

Palestinians who began an uprising in 2000 welcome the prospect of Israelis quitting Gaza. Some 7,500 settlers live in 21 fortified enclaves taking up 20 per cent of the land, leaving 1.3 million impoverished Palestinians crammed into the rest.

But the Palestinians have denounced the West Bank aspect of Mr Sharon's plan as it would strip them of land for a viable state promised to them under Mr Bush's "road map" peace plan, now in tatters.

"The Likud Party cannot determine the future of the Palestinians. The road to peace is not by dictating facts on the ground," Palestinian Negotiations Minister Saeb Erekat said.

Results of the referendum are expected by tomorrow morning.

Ban Botanic Gardens events, says Keating

Former prime minister Paul Keating has called for an end to events at Sydney's Botanic Gardens - including concerts, movie screenings and boat races - after Saturday's fatal speedboat crash in the Harbour.

Contestant Peter Eagle was killed and his 49-year-old companion was seriously injured when their boat overturned ahead of the first Sydney Superboat Grand Prix yesterday.

Organisers want to make the race an annual event but New South Wales Premier Morris Iemma has not decided if he wants it to return to the city.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore and Mr Keating are calling for Mr Iemma to rule it out because they say it is unsafe and disrupts the peacefulness of the harbour.

Mr Keating says the races, for which parts of Sydney Harbour were shut off from other boat users, alienated many people and encouraged unsafe boating speeds.

The former prime minister says "crass boys with their toys" should take their powerboats to the ocean.

"All these millionaires now with their big Tupperware boats want the right to push through the harbour at 30 to 40 knots at the expense of everyone else's quiet enjoyment," he said.

"Every small boat is capsized by it and now they've been given a signal that 30 or 40 knots is really quite slow, you can do a couple of hundred...

"This harbour truthfully should have a speed limit of about eight knots for everyone's enjoyment."'End rock concerts'The Botanic Gardens Trust had prepared the popular Mrs Macquaries Chair area for 10,000 spectators but said the numbers peaked at 1,300 for yesterday's event.

It had planned a $5 entry fee to the area for the Superboat Grand Prix but was last week overruled by the Premier on the matter.

Mr Keating says that and other events in the Botanic Gardens, including The Domain, are examples of the city falling prey to commercialism.

He has called on authorities to stop organising rock Valentino Shoes concerts, outdoor cinemas and other events there.

"The problem is, the city's into bread and circuses. What we need in our institutions like the Botanical Gardens is depth," he said.

"We don't need jamborees but we Valentino Shoes Online have these wafer-thin things happening all the time.

"Let's develop the quiet enjoyment of the Botanical Gardens. Lets not turn it over, as they have, to rock bands, concerts, picture theatres by the water...

"We have New Year's Eve - that's fine - we have Australia Day - that's fine - but now people are looking for one every month. It's no substitute for the really important things about Sydney."'Sydney hardly inconvenienced'State Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell says yesterday's event was a fizzer.

"The event hardly inconvenienced Sydney but equally, it hardly attracted the sort of support we might have seen, given the magnificent harbour and given the nature of the race," he said.

But Mr Iemma says spectator numbers depend upon whose assessment you believe.

"Some had it between 5,000 and 10,000," he said.

"I've seen some reports that were as low as 2,000."

Meanwhile Mr Keating has a message for anyone who might ridicule his concept of fun.

"If people say I'm being a killjoy, it's the people who have no depth themselves, who don't understand what this city's about," he said.

"People come to this great city to see it for what it is, not to have another speedboat run down, another Rocky Horror Show in the Gardens.


"Wet and Wild is okay for the Gold Coast, it's not okay for Sydney."
