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
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
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
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
"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
