U.S. Still Hunting Nazis
The U.S. Justice Department has begun proceedings
to revoke the citizenship of a 77-year-old Chicago man. He
is accused of having served as a guard in Nazi camps.
Jozef Guzoleitis hid from the immigration authorities the fact that
he guarded in the Maidanek and Hernsbruck concentration camps. He
also was one of the guards during the Death March from Hernsbruck
to Dachau in 1945.
Two Holocaust survivors identified him on a Munich street in the
fall of 1945, and he was arrested and detained until March 1947. He
immigrated to the United States in 1951.
Netanyahu: Terrorists Will Nuke New York
By IsraelFaxx.com and VOA News
Former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Monday
night that Mideast terrorists are determined to obtain nuclear
weapons and when they do, they will use them on New York City.
"They're going to attack American again and again," Netanyahu told
Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." And the great danger that we
face is...if they acquire nuclear weapons - if any part of this
terror network acquires nuclear weapons, they will use it. And
history as we know it will come to a pass."
The one-time Israeli prime minister said there is no doubt which
city would be first on the terrorist nuke target list.
"They'll drop it in New York. They'll drop it right here -- right
in the place where we sit."
President Bush said Tuesday that threats from Osama bin Laden
to use weapons of mass destruction should be taken seriously,
although there is no evidence bin Laden or his al Qaeda terrorist
organization possess such weaponry.
"Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda (are) seeking to develop... weapons of
mass destruction," Bush told reporters. "The reason I said that is
because I was using his own words. He announced this was his
intention and I believe we need to take him seriously. We will do
everything we can to make sure he does not acquire the means to
deliver weapons of mass destruction."
In a satellite address to a multi-nation anti-terrorism conference
in Warsaw Tuesday morning, Bush said that given the means, al-Qaida
"would be a threat to every nation and, eventually, to civilization
Israel Orders IDF to Leave Ramallah, 4 Dead in Shootout
By Meredith Buel (VOA-Jerusalem)
Defense Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer has ordered troops to
withdraw from the West Bank city of Ramallah. A defense ministry
statement said Israel would keep a blockade around the city while
Palestinian commanders take responsibility for security in
Israeli tanks and troops moved into six West Bank towns nearly
three weeks ago after Palestinian extremists assassinated an
Israeli cabinet minister. Israel has been under strong U.S. and
European pressure to withdraw. After the expected pullout, Ramallah
will be the fourth town where Israel has withdrawn forces.
Israeli forces withdrew Monday from the Palestinian town of
Qalqilya after a two week re-occupation. Troops left Bethlehem and
the adjacent town of Beit Jala last week.
Earlier Tuesday, two Palestinian activists were been killed by a
car explosion in the West Bank town of Jenin. Both victims were
members of the Fatah movement of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat.
Palestinian officials accuse Israel of booby-trapping the car.
Israel says a bomb the victims were preparing blew up prematurely.
Elsewhere in the West Bank, three Palestinians and an Israeli
soldier were killed during a gunbattle close to the
Palestinian-ruled town of Nablus. The Israeli army says three
Palestinian gunmen ambushed an Israeli patrol near the Palestinian
village of Tell Burin and the soldiers returned fire.
Some other reports said the Israelis fired first. Palestinian
officials charged that the three Palestinians were wounded
initially and then executed by Israeli soldiers who blocked
emergency medical crews. The Israeli army denied this and said all
three Palestinians were killed in the exchange of gunfire.
Ambulances and medical personnel had difficulty reaching the area
because of the heavy exchange of gunfire. Sources said the
Palestinians were killed during the clash and the Israeli soldier
died on the way to the hospital.
An advisor to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Tuesday there
will be a change in Israeli military tactics. He said Israel will
now rely more on what he called guerrilla warfare-type operations
than on large-scale military incursions into Palestinian areas.
