Israeli Forces Enter Palestinian Area of West Bank

By VOA News

Palestinians reported a fighter with leader Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement was killed after Israeli troops moved deep into a Palestinian area of the West Bank for the first time since violence broke out last September.

Israel said it moved into Beit Jala outside Jerusalem with tanks and armored vehicles in response to gunfire from the area targeting the nearby Israeli neighborhood of Gilo. Palestinians said at least 20 people were wounded in the clash, including two children. Israeli forces have entered Palestinian-controlled areas of the Gaza Strip in recent weeks, but, until Sunday, not the West Bank.

Earlier Sunday, Israeli police said a small bomb exploded near a bus stop in a Tel Aviv suburb during rush hour, slightly wounding one person. At about the same time, four explosions were reported in an Israeli town near the Gaza Strip.

Official Syrian Anti-Semitism

Arutz-7 News

Syrian President Bashar Assad's official speech of welcome to Pope John Paul II Saturday contained clearly anti-Semitic clauses. The speech showed that anti-Semitism in the official Syrian press is not of an incidental nature, but is rather part of a consistent government policy.

Excerpts from Assad's welcome: "[You, the pope, embody] the summit of responsibility for maintaining those values [love, tolerance and equality among human beings], especially [since] there are those who invariably attempt to subject all people once and again to the journey of ailments and agony.

"Therefore, our brethren in Palestine are being murdered and tortured, justice is being violated, and as a result territories in Lebanon, the Golan and Palestine have been occupied by those who even killed the principle of equality when they claimed that God created a people distinguished above all other peoples.

"We notice them aggressing against Moslem (sic) and Christian Holy Sites in Palestine... They try to kill all the principles of divine faiths with the same mentality of betraying Jesus and torturing him, and in the same way that they tried to commit treachery against Prophet Mohammad...

"Justice means restoration of rights to those who deserve them. Land and houses in Lebanon, Syria and Palestine belong to their owners. It also means return of the refugees to their homeland. Love means refraining from killing Arabs out of hatred, and to teach children not to bear malice against others. Truth is realized by refraining from distorting current and historical facts and from claiming rights and history which have no basis."

The Syrian president further noted that Islam makes no distinction among people - except if they are not God-fearing. "Islam spread throughout the world advocating justice, love and equality among human beings with no distinction between one and another except by God-fearing."

Libyan Leader: Israel Infected Us with AIDS Virus

Arutz-7 News (Reporting on the Arab Press)

The Egyptian government daily Al-Ahram has echoed themes recently promoted by Libyan dictator Mu'ammar Qadhafi in diatribes directed against the U.S. and Israel. Following are excerpts from the Al-Ahram piece, courtesy of the Middle East Media Research Institute:

"Our brother, the Colonel Mu'ammar Al-Qadhafi, the leader of the Libyan revolution, revealed that two years ago Libyan children in the city of Benghazi suffered from the most abominable crime in the history of mankind, when foreign nurses injected them with the AIDS virus, while pretending to immunize them...

"Qadhafi added that there are those who think that the CIA or the Israeli Mossad were behind this crime. He emphasized that these children were transported to Europe for treatment and that European health authorities are well aware of the matter. Other [infected] children are treated by Libyan clinics.

"Qadhafi added that this act, which is a malicious sex crime, reveals the ugly face of those who introduced the AIDS virus to Africa in order to exhaust its strength and deplete its resources with the intention of gaining control over Africa."

"Thanks to Hitler"

Arutz-7 News (Reporting on the Arab Press)

In his daily column in the Egyptian government daily Al-Akhbar entitled "Half a Word," columnist Ahmad Ragab reiterated his thanks to Hitler. The Middle East Media Research Institute first reported the journalist's sentiment last month, however, last week the column reported:

"[Insistently] for the second time, thanks to Hitler, of blessed memory, who on behalf of the Palestinians, revenged in advance, against the most vile criminals on the face of the earth. Although we do have a complaint against him for his revenge on them was not enough."
