Sharon: Syria Talks Would Mean Golan Withdrawal
By VOA News
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has told members of his country's parliament that
peace negotiations with Syria would ultimately result in Israel's withdrawal from the
Golan Heights. He did not elaborate on his remark, which came in a meeting Monday of a
Sharon has said in the past that he opposes a pullback from the strategic heights that
Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 war. A spokesman said a lawmaker at the meeting
asked Sharon if it would be a good time to accept Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's offer
of talks. Israel Radio said some members of parliament interpreted Sharon's comments as a
warning against an early resumption of negotiations with Syria.
In a newspaper interview last month, Assad said he wants to resume talks where they
broke off in 2000 - with Israel offering to withdraw from most of the Golan Heights.
Israel has said there should not be any conditions on new negotiations.
Israeli Soldier Killed in Hizbullah Attack at Lebanese Border
By VOA News
One Israeli soldier was killed and another wounded when Lebanon's Hizbullah terrorist
group destroyed an Israeli military bulldozer Monday. The Israeli army said a rocket hit
the bulldozer while it was clearing explosives that had been planted along the Lebanese
border. The army says the bulldozer was on the Israeli side of the divide.
But Hizbullah said the bulldozer had crossed into Lebanese territory, "violating" the
border. The militant Islamic group claims it got a direct hit on the vehicle.
The chief of Israel's northern command, Maj. Gen. Benny Gantz, called the incident
"very serious" and indicated that retaliation is being considered. He went on to blame
Syria for backing Hizbullah.
Earlier, Hizbullah had said it fired on Israeli jets flying over southern Lebanon. The
group said the Israeli planes flew over the middle parts of southern Lebanon, violating
Lebanese air space. Residents reported that the planes broke the sound barrier over the
port city of Tyre. Israel has flown regular sorties over Lebanon since withdrawing its
troops from the southern part of the country in 2000.
Female Terrorist Adulteress Atone by Murdering Jews
"Hamas took advantage of our compassion," said IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Moshe Yaalon
"when it sent a female suicide terrorist disguised as a cripple, and the ones to pay for
it now will be the Palestinian population."
Yaalon made the remarks when he visited Erez Crossing in northern Gaza, where four
security personnel were felled last Wednesday by the murderer. She cried and begged to be
allowed through a checkpoint, and then capitalized on the moment when a guard took pity on
her and detonated her explosives amidst a group of Israelis.
In her pre-suicide video speech, the woman - a mother of a year-old baby and a
3-year-old toddler - smilingly boasted of her long-time dream to "become a martyr" for her
people. "It was always my wish to turn my body into deadly shrapnel against the Zionists
and to knock on the doors of heaven with the skulls of Zionists."
It now, appears, however, that she was not as ideologically-inclined as it appeared -
and that in fact her act was simply a quadruple murder designed to "solve" her own
personal family problems. After the bombing, AP reported, the murderer's family refused
to speak to reporters, a rarity in these cases, and did not set up a mourning tent for
her. Israeli security officials have been quoted as saying that she was in fact an
adulteress who was forced to carry out the attack to restore her family's honor. As has
been widely documented, Muslim women in the PA and elsewhere who are accused of adultery
are not infrequently killed by their relatives in what is known as "honor killings."
It was further reported that the terrorist's illicit lover recruited her and gave her
the suicide bomb belt. PA security officials said her husband drove her to Erez to carry
out the attack.
PA sources denied the reports regarding the motivation, and continued to give
assurances that she was religiously motivated. Hamas, however, showing flexibility in
meeting the needs of the times, has reportedly adapted its traditional position against
the use of woman suicide bombers, and permits such murders in two cases: when the woman is
more likely to successfully carry out the assignment, or when she is need of "atonement"
for having committed family-related sins.
Photographic Proof: Allies Could Have Bombed Death Camps
By IsraelNationalNews.com & The Guardian
Photographs taken by British pilots in 1944, at the height of the Holocaust, reveal the
truth of the long-time Jewish claim that the Allies could have bombed the railroad tracks
leading to the Nazi death camps - and even the gas chambers themselves.
The archives of some five million photos are being made available on a new Internet site (www.evidenceincamera.co.uk). Some pictures show a clearly-identifiable plume of smoke rising from a crematorium in Auschwitz, while others show smoke rising from burial pits where bodies that were unable to be taken to the crematoria were burned.
"One thing is certain," says Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum director Avner Shalev. "These
photos show once again, in a most chilling manner, that which was known before: The Allies
were able to reach the death camps, fly over them, photograph them - and bomb them."
British sources said that the tremendous amount of photographs that were taken made it
difficult to analyze all of the relevant ones. The Allied intelligence services apparently
chose the ones that were of immediate military importance.
Shalev added that it was in mid-1944 when the destruction of at least 437,000 Hungarian
Jewish men, women and children was at its peak. Yad Vashem archives already have pictures
taken by American and South African pilots of the death camps, including some which show
the smoke of dead Jews rising skyward. In many cases, an analysis of the time and date of
the picture, together with information on the various transports of Jews that arrived at
the camps, can produce an accurate picture of the precise origin of the transport
eternalized in the photo.
At the time the Nazi authorities, knowing their defeat was in sight, ordered a steep
increase in the tempo of extermination. Crematoria were overwhelmed and temporary burial
pits were fired. Those due to be taken to the gas ovens had to queue for a day in woodland
near one crematorium, so the ashes of earlier victims fell on them as they waited. The
resolution of the possibly unique aerial image is so good that inmates can be seen on roll
The British public knew little about the death camps and liberating them was not an
allied war priority. Gassings continued at Auschwitz for five months after the picture was
taken. The camp was not liberated and the extent of atrocities not disclosed until Jan. 27
