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 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 itself."

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 Ramallah.

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.
