3/25/02 - 3/31/02

Sunday  3/31/02

Reporter wounded; Israel asks journalists to leave Ramallah  3/31/02 AP: "Anthony Shadid, a Washington-based Boston Globe reporter on assignment in Ramallah, was standing in a doorway of a shop with Globe stringer Said al-Ghazali when he was shot, said Globe foreign editor James F. Smith."

Last Night the Israeli Military Tried to Kill Me  3/31/02 Counterpunch 

Without mercy: Israelis execute Arafat's elite guards  3/31/02 Guardian, UK 

Porn the new weapon of choice  3/31/02 News 24 

From Old Files, a New Story of U.S. Role in Angolan War  3/31/02 NYT: "Historians and former diplomats who have studied the documents say they show conclusively that the United States intervened in Angola weeks before the arrival of any Cubans, not afterward as Washington claimed. Moreover, though a connection between Washington and South Africa, which was then ruled by a white government under the apartheid policy, was strongly denied at the time, the documents appear to demonstrate their broad collaboration."

I saw the bodies, killed by a shot to the head  3/31/02 Observer, UK: to be reported in the pro-Israeli US media?

Sharon Crosses Bush; Bush Runs for Cover  3/31/02 Palestine Chronicle: "The first completely dominant superpower in history can have its president publicly humiliated by a well documented psychotic war criminal. In response to this flogging in the international arena, Cheney cautions his president against tangling with Sharon."

Palestinian reprisals leave fifteen dead and many injured  3/31/02 Ummah News 

Why the US feels such an affinity with the Zionists  3/31/02 Ummah News: true words: "A quick look at America's history explains its complicity. European settlers with a Biblical ideology, amazingly close to present-day Zionism, invaded the Americas and destroyed the indigenous civilizations that had prospered there for centuries or millennia. New Americans paid no attention to the rights of local people, who were wantonly slaughtered and driven from their lands, or who died en masse of the diseases brought from Europe to the Northern American continent by the Europeans. But that is only one crime of the new Americans. Beside being built on the graves of millions of native peoples in the eastern and central part of the continent, America was built on the backs of millions of Africans, kidnapped and worked to death in the new world to build and benefit the white man's paradise. This dual crime of genocide and enslavement was soon supplemented by a third, the systematic depopulation of what was once greater Mexico, the area now known as the south-western United States, of its original inhabitants. The American colonial machine soon occupied all of what is now called the United States, and legalised and normalized the fruits of its crimes."

topIsraeli Troops Gun Down Cameraman From Egyptian TV  3/30/02 Al Jazeera: "Daniel Seaman, an Israeli government spokesman, said Israeli troops do not shoot at media vehicles. He said the incident wouldn't be investigated."

US 'not to blame' for Afghan casualties  3/30/02 Independent, UK: the logic of state terror

Arafat in the crossfire as Israel goes for kill  3/30/02 The Scotsman, UK: “After the first day of this, I can tell you that we are seeing a terrible silence of the international community. The same international community that was silent when the Jews were murdered is now silent when the existence of the Palestinians as a people is put in doubt.”

Winfrey declines Bush invite to Afghan trip  3/29/02 Chicago Tribune: ""Given her responsibility to the show, she isn't adding anything to her calendar," said a representative of Winfrey's Chicago-based production company. "She was invited, but she respectfully declined." So the White House, lacking its preferred guest, postponed a trip that also was to feature some of the administration's top women, including Bush adviser Karen Hughes and possibly National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. Aides said it was unclear whether another celebrity who shares Winfrey's credibility and popularity could be substituted."

McCarthyism Watch  3/27/02 The Progressive: "What if there had been someone of Middle Eastern descent in our group? Would we have seen our friend again?" Sanders asks. "I'm actually fearful now of having any material or speaking out against our government. I felt I couldn't be safe with that, that I could be arrested or put on a list somewhere. You cannot be critical of the government right now. If you're not patriotic or a nationalist, you could be singled out."

THE GREAT TERROR  3/25/02 New Yorker: by Jeffrey Goldberg - "In northern Iraq, there is new evidence of Saddam Hussein's genocidal war on the Kurds—and of his possible ties to Al Qaeda." Notwithstanding the hatred of Al Qaeda for Sadam, who has killed numerous clerics.

Bush & Cheney Are Misinformed  3/25/02 Polyconomics: "He based his conclusions that the "several hundred Kurds" who died at Halabja must have been killed by Iranians, because the deaths were caused by cyanide gas, which Iraq had not used in the war against Iran (they used mustard gas), and which, says Pelletiere, they had no ability to produce. He says the Iranians blamed the deaths on the Iraqis and won the public-relations war that followed, even though journalists at Halabja could see the symptoms being caused by cyanide gas. In his new book, Pelletiere again addresses the question of the alleged gassing later in 1988, which Secretary of State George Shultz at the time said resulted in the deaths of 100,000 Kurds. Pelletiere argues that story was a complete fabrication, and that to this day no bodies were ever found. His account is consistent with the account of the Iraqi government, but as time goes on, the Shultz account still winds up being accepted by our press corps.... and our President."
