Italy scuppers EU anti-terrorism plan  12/7/01 Independent, UK: "But diplomats have speculated that the real motive is a desire to exclude a host of crimes, including financial misdemeanours and corruption, from the scope of the proposal.

Foundation says US froze its assets upon Israel’s urging  12/6/01 Arab News 

World demands Israel respect rights  12/6/01 Arab News: A search on DayPOP has 0 hits for the Fourth Geneva Convention as of 10PM EST on the 5th, when Arab News is already out for the following date: "A final declaration called on Israel to "refrain from committing grave breaches involving any of the actions the Fourth Convention, such as willful killing, torture, unlawful deportation." It also called on the "occupying power" to refrain from "collective penalties (and) unjustified restrictions of free movement". A delegate of the International Committee of the Red Cross said violations included Israeli settlements and restrictions on the activities of medical services, including ambulances."

If he wants to die, he’s going to die here. Or he’s going to f—cking spend the rest of his short f—cking life in prison. It’s his decision, man. We can only help the guys who want to talk to us.

CONSERVATIVE ISRAELI NEWSPAPER CRITICIZES SHARON'S ACTION  12/6/01 Shalom Center: "Seems to me what is really going on here is a conspiracy of right-wingers — Palestinian & Israeli — Hamas & Sharon — to shatter any chance of peace. Sharon thinks if he does that the result will be permanent Israeli control over the West Bank, and probably the piece-by-piece expulsion of the Palestinians. Hamas thinks that over a longer time period, the result will be the shattering of Israel (thru internal radical-alienation of Israelis of Palestinian origin, & external mobilization of Arabs and Muslims). Either way, the result for the Jewish people is horrendous."

Arafat's nightmare: Israel bombs the jails  12/5/01 Haaretz Daily, Israel 

Arafat will gamble on Israel's 'war' failing again  12/5/01 Independent, UK: by Robert Fisk: "Hamas, the principal target of the Sharon "war on terror", was originally sponsored by Israel. Back in the 1980s, when Mr Arafat was the "super-terrorist" and Hamas was a pleasant little Muslim charity, albeit venomous in its opposition to Israel, the Israeli government encouraged its members to build mosques in Gaza. Some genius in the Israeli Army decided that there was no better way of undermining the PLO's nationalist ambitions in the occupied territories than by promoting Islam. Even after the Oslo agreement, during a row with Mr Arafat, senior Israeli Army Officers publicly announced that they were chatting to Hamas officials. And when Israel illegally deported hundreds of Hamas men to Lebanon in 1992, it was one of their leaders, hearing that I was travelling to Israel, who offered me Shimon Peres' home telephone number from his contact book."

Tuesday  12/4/01

topPearl Harbor: A Look Back, A Look Forward  12/4/01 Alternet: "While many are aware only of the internees of Japanese ancestry, it is also true that slightly less than half of those interned -- 14,426, to be exact -- were of European descent. The majority of these were Germans, but Italians, Hungarians, Poles, Bulgarians, and Czechs are counted among the thousands interned by our government. As these men and their families learned over the years, the punishment for being different was greater than many of them could have ever imagined. "

Outrage at Israeli strikes  12/4/01 BBC: "French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine said in Paris that Israel had adopted the wrong strategy with its attacks on Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's headquarters.

New US Terror Alert Linked to Nuke Fear  12/4/01 Debka: Debka is a classic disinformation site, mixing pearls with garbage. This article seems genuine, and they are correct in affirming that there was a press report of a man caught smuggling a dirty bomb into Israel, by UPI, on 10/27/01: "Little noticed story dated 10-14: "Israeli security last month arrested a man linked to suspected terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden armed with a radiological backpack bomb, as he attempted to enter Israel from the Palestinian Territories via a border checkpoint at Ramallah, according to U.S. government officials."

It was half-buried in the remains of the straw roof of a house where three men had died: Fazil Karim, his brother Mahmor Ghulab, and his nephew Hasiz Ullah. "They were a family, just ordinary people," said Haji Mohammed Nazir, the local elder who was accompanying us. "They were not terrorists – the terrorists are in the mountains, over there.''
