well, they will stop when they complete the job, meaning they all have to be killed. Only about 3,000,000 left, and most live in Tel Aviv.


NEVER AGAIN? Yeah, right.

Israel Says Hundreds of Palestinians Killed

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli army said on Friday it had apparently killed hundreds of Palestinians in fierce fighting earlier in the week in the Jenin refugee camp.


"There were apparently hundreds of dead," the army's chief spokesman, Brigadier-General Ron Kitrey, told Army Radio.


Palestinians have called on the United Nations to investigate the killings of Palestinians in the camp and accused Israel of carrying out massacres.


Kitrey denied Israeli soldiers had carried out massacres in the camp during the army's West Bank offensive to root out militants.


But his estimate of hundreds of dead sharply revised upwards the army's previous figure of some 100 Palestinian fighters killed in Jenin.


Jenin, like other West Bank areas, has been declared a closed military area, and journalists have been barred from obtaining their own independent accounts.

Sharon: "I don't care what your White House says, I don't care what your Congress says, I don't care what your Supreme court says, I don't care what you Americans say.

All I care about is what those in your White House basement & CIA say. When they stop supplying me money & weapons, then I'll have to negotiate peace. Till then..."

NY Times, CNN etc failed to broadcast or print Sharon's words.

Out of fear or solemn patriotic vow?

"We have nothing to fear but fear itself." Hmm? Is that so?

"Paranoia strikes deep, into your heart it will creep..."

"Is is any wonder that his face was Red?

Kawliga that poor old wooden head."

At Birmingham Rathayatra 12Jul, some were passing out this pamphlet:

Did You Know.....?

1) Did u know non-Jewish Israelis cannot buy or lease land in Israel [the Zionist entity]?

2) Did u know cars owned by Palestinians r color-coded to distinguish Jews from non-Jews?

3) Did u know Palestinians r not allowed to move from one city to another, say Gaza to Bethlehem, sans first getting a visa from the Israelis?

4) Did u know Palestinian youth, both Christian & Muslim r denied access to their Holy sites routinely?

5) Did u know Israel allots 85% water resources for Jews & remaining 15% among all Palestimnians within territories?

Par exemple, in Hebron 85% water is given to about 400 Jews, while 15% must be divided among Hebron's 120,000 Palestinians.

This stuff is right out of Gita Chapter 16: Dead-Ringers, need I type in more?

OK, tomorrow.

Meanwhile, u can check their website &/or email them:

Ready for more? Just when u though it safe to go the ballot box..

6) Did u know the USA awards Israel $5 billion/yr foregn aid?

7) Did u know in 2001, trade between UK & Israel increased by 20%?

BRITECH trade agreement means there's now 15.5 million pound sterling joint fund to encourage co-operation between British & Israeli Hitech companies.

8) Did u know yearly US aid to Israel exceeds US aid granted to Africa's entire continent?

9) Did u know Israel is the only Middle East country with Nuclear Weapons?

10) Did u know, amongst all Middle East nations, only Israel refuses to sign any nuclear proliferation treaty?

Moreover, Israel bars international inspection of its military sites.

5 facts/day keeps Ari the Allopath away. Enough for today.

Silencing a Palestinian Moderate By Anthony Lewis - New York Times | Opinion - Saturday, 13 July, 2002


Why would Israel shut down the office of the leading Palestinian moderate? Many asked that question when Israeli police acted this week against Sari Nusseibeh, president of Al Quds University and the Palestine Liberation Organization's designated representative in Jerusalem. They carted off his files and changed the lock on the door.

Mr. Nusseibeh has been a voice for peace over many years. In 1988, before a two-state solution was policy on either side, he told me that Palestinians should say to Israel: "We don't want to destroy your state, but we want our own state alongside." Last fall he said Palestinians should give up their claim of a right to return to homes in Israel.


In short, he is the perfect example of the new kind of leadership, peaceful and pragmatic, that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of Israel and President Bush have said the Palestinians must have before there can be political negotiations on an end to the conflict. Why target him?

The answer is that important elements in the Israeli government do not want a real two-state solution and do not want political negotiations with a reformed Palestinian leadership. They prefer the present situation: the West Bank occupied or tightly controlled by Israel, with an increasing number of Jewish settlers. The last thing they want is a respected Palestinian interlocutor.


The police raid was ordered by Uzi Landau, minister of public security in the Sharon government. A hard-line member of the Likud Party, Mr. Landau opposed the Oslo agreement, with its call for gradual Israeli withdrawal from occupied territory in favor of Palestinian control.

Jerusalem is a second part of the disinclination to negotiate. Mr. Landau and others on the political right oppose giving up any part of Israel's claimed sovereignty over greater Jerusalem. But Palestinians say they must have the capital of their state in East Jerusalem, which is overwhelmingly Palestinian in population.


No Palestinian leader would, or politically could, accept a final agreement without at least a small, symbolic Palestinian piece of Jerusalem. The previous Israeli prime minister, Ehud Barak, recognized as much at Camp David two years ago when he offered the Palestinians sovereignty over parts of East Jerusalem. Israelis like Mr. Landau who say they will refuse to negotiate about Jerusalem are in effect saying there will be no negotiations.

Mr. Landau said Mr. Nusseibeh's role as Jerusalem representative of the P.L.O. was an effort to "undermine Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem." Mr. Nusseibeh has no power there, but he is visible. And he comes from a family that has been prominent in Jerusalem for centuries. The Nusseibehs hold the keys to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, given to them by the quarreling Christian sects because they could not agree on which should have them.


Where does Prime Minister Sharon stand on these questions? He did not tell Mr. Landau to move against Sari Nusseibeh. But given the positions he has stated frequently, there is no reason to think that he opposed the police raid or disagreed with its objectives.

Mr. Sharon has made clear that his idea of a "Palestinian state," if he ever agreed to its creation, is very different from the viable state that international negotiators have had in mind. He envisages islands of Palestinian territory, not contiguous, surrounded by Israeli settlements, highways and military units. It would not include any part of Jerusalem.


Mr. Sharon and Mr. Landau did not worry about United States reaction to the Nusseibeh raid. They believe they have carte blanche from President Bush to act as they wish against the Palestinians. Mr. Bush's recent speech really withdrew the United States from an active role for the moment. So Israel felt no sting from a White House statement that the Nusseibeh raid was "troubling."

All this must fascinate Sari Nusseibeh, who is really not a politician but an Oxford-educated philosopher. This spring he, a Muslim, used a Christian metaphor in a comment to David Remnick of The New Yorker. "The Palestinians," he said, "have to resurrect the spirit of Christ to absorb the sense of pain and insult they feel and control it, and not let it determine the way they act toward Israel. They have to realize that an act of violence does not serve their interest.This is a gigantic undertaking."
