Obviously wanting to be prepared for any contingency, the Palestinian Authority's foreign ministerial entourage doesn't travel light:
Jordan postponed a visit by the Palestinian Authority's foreign minister after finding weapons and explosives carried by members of the Hamas group, which leads the Palestinian government.

The discovery of the weapons is ``proof that the Hamas movement uses different double language in its behavior with Jordan,'' the official Petra news agency cited Nasser Judeh, Jordan's government spokesman, as saying yesterday.

Jordan affirms its strong relations with the Palestinian people and the Palestinian Authority, the government said in a later statement. The weapons seized included rockets, explosives and automatic rifles, Petra cited the statement as saying.
Never can tell when you're going to need a rocket or some explosives, you know, when you visit the neighbours.
