Sunday  4/7/02

Israelis massacre Palestinians in Jenin  4/7/02 Arab News, Saudi Arabia: "Nearly 100 Palestinians were killed as Israeli troops, tanks and helicopters raided the Jenin refugee camp prompting a fierce fight. Palestinian sources said it was a massacre of Palestinians by Israelis in the refugee camp. Five Israelis were reported killed in the fight. Twelve Palestinians were killed elsewhere."

Unholy War: The Bethlehem bellringer, the doctor, the mother. The innocent keep on dying  4/7/02 Independent, UK: "This weekend, the Israeli army has got to batter the Palestinians into submission. And somehow, the Palestinian forces have got to hang on and keep fighting. If they succeed, and the Israelis withdraw their tanks without subduing them, Mr Sharon is forced into a bitter humiliation. If the Israelis do not withdraw at Mr Powell's demand, then the first serious crack appears in the Sharon-Bush alliance. In which case, Mr Arafat will win yet again. The Israeli army, meanwhile, is proving once more – as it did in Lebanon – that it is not the "elite" force it's cracked up to be. It is impossible to dismiss the widespread reports of looting from homes in Ramallah (not least because that is exactly what Israeli soldiers used to do in southern Lebanon in 1983); and that brave Israeli academic, Avi Shlaim, has himself charged Israel with extra-judicial killings in Ramallah."

Les juifs de France manifestent pour Israël et contre l'antisémitisme  4/7/02 Le Monde, Paris: right wing Zionist knifes police in the abdomen trying to get at pro-peace Israeli demonstrators in Paris: "Au cours de la manifestation, un commissaire de police a été grièvement blessé à l'abdomen par un jeune appartenant à un groupe extrémiste juif qui tentait de s'en prendre à des manifestants d'un mouvement pacifiste israélien, favorables à la création d'un Etat palestinien, qui avaient défilé quelques instants plus tôt près de la place de la Bastille."

Eyewitnesses inside the camp confirm that Israeli bulldozers have leveled the refugee camp’s front row homes while the families were still inside."

topMountain Division: Why the U.S. can't match the British at high altitudes.  4/5/02 American Prospect: relevant for some time to come, published 3/21/02

Captured by the One-Eyed Cyclops (I): Vest Report  4/5/02 Defense and the National Interest: A professional soldier's view (3/22/02) of the battles in Afghanistan and the wishful thinking about these on the US side: "Other officers I interviewed found it interesting that the person arguably best suited to help the public understand what was going on in Shah-i-Kot had been muzzled, and were not charitable in speculating as to what that meant. One officer who follows Grau's work did, however, draw my attention that day to a recent article co-authored by Grau for the Military Review Bulletin, published by the Army Command and General Staff College. Entitled "Ground Combat at High Altitude," the article flies in the face of early official optimistic pronouncements about Anaconda, essentially stating that the US Army's knowledge about high-mountain combat – defined as 10,000 feet and higher – is disturbingly deficient. (Anaconda ranged over turf from 8500 to 13,000 feet). "The US Army has no experience fighting in truly high mountains and its mountain warfare manuals deal primarily with low and medium mountains," the piece begins, adding that the Army "needs to know how to conduct high-altitude mountain warfare, develop the tactics, techniques and procedures to do so, and share the experience of other armies to understand and prepare for possible high-altitude conflicts."

Vreeland Talks  4/5/02 Guerilla News Network: "14. Q: Does that statement imply that the U.S. or some other intelligence agency had achieved complete penetration of the terrorist cells? A: That goes without question. Sometimes certain governments design, create networks like Al Qaeda, which was really the government in Afghanistan. Those entities create specific problems at the creating government’s direction."

Ground Combat at High Altitude  4/5/02 Military Review: From the Jan/Feb 2002 issue: "The U.S. Army has no experience fighting in truly high mountains and its mountain warfare manuals deal primarily with low and medium mountains and stress the use of helicopter aviation to conduct that combat. However, helicopters cannot haul normal loads over 13,000 feet [3965 meters] since their rotors lack thick enough air to "bite" into, and high altitude weather conditions will frequently shut down flying for days. High-altitude combat differs from medium- and low-mountain altitude combat and requires a different orientation and force structure."

Bringing Non-Violence to the West Bank  4/4/02 Alternet: "As the Israeli Army intensifies its iron-fisted advance in the Palestinian territories and the bloody battle rages on, a strange calm has fallen on Yasir Arafat's compound. Just last week the prime target of the Israeli offensive, it now sits in the eye of the storm. Why? "Because we entered," says Samir Alassi, a Belgian citizen. The shelling stopped last Sunday, when he and 40 other concerned foreigners marched peacefully on the compound, past tanks and gunfire, and into the buildings where Arafat and his last hold-outs sit holed up in Ramallah."

Anthrax whodunit may have political subplot  4/4/02 Dallas Morning News: "Similarly, enough is known about the anthrax letters that at least one researcher would almost certainly have a pretty good idea who sent them. So maybe the FBI already knows who did it but doesn't have enough evidence to make an arrest. There is, however, another possibility, Dr. Block mentioned at the physics meeting. Perhaps the FBI knows who did it but also knows that it is someone who knows too much. "The FBI, after all these months, has still not arrested anybody," Dr. Block said. "It's possible, as has been suggested, that they may be standing back because the person that's involved with it may have secret information that the United States government would not like to have divulged."

UM faces further budget cuts - Legislators cite KOMU policy on flag and ribbon wearing as the motivation for the cuts.  4/4/02 Digital Missourian: "Rep.

He cited discontent with KOMU news director Stacey Woelfel and his policy forbidding reporters from wearing red, white and blue ribbons or flags while working for the newsroom as his motivation for the amendment."

Estimates vary, but most students of Armageddon theology agree that as a result of these relatively recent interpretations of Biblical scripture, 10 to 40 million Americans believe Palestine is God's chosen land for the Jews."

Can you help us understand what the priorities are with a prisoner like this? Is it to get intelligence from him first and to prosecute later?

Rumsfeld: There is no question but that the overriding importance -- important issue is intelligence gathering."

Palestinian villages would continue to be "islands" isolated from each other, "Bantustans" completely surrounded by the Israeli military who could and do blockade entire villages from travel. Except for three villages, Barak excluded the 28 Palestinian villages Israel illegally annexed to Jerusalem. Israel would accept no responsibility for the Palestinian refugee problem. To his credit, Barak broke long-held taboos in discussing Jerusalem and the refugees."

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world. It is followed by about 33% of all people -- a percentage that has remaind stable for decades. It is expected that, if current trends continue, Islam will become the most popular religion sometime in the mid-21st century.
