  • Justice in Jericho
    Jerusalem Post - March 14, 2006  For Israelis, the idea of the Palestinian assassins on the loose was unacceptable. For the Palestinians, particularly the incoming Hamas government, the prospect of the killers, who for many of them are heroes, remaining behind bars was unthinkable. One side was as determined to bring the murderers to justice as the other was to set them free.

  • A love story for Jews and Christians
    By Hillel Halkin - Jerusalem Post - March 17, 2006  I don't wish to wax mystical about it. I don't know if my and Carrie and Mark Burns's souls have to have some profound commonality just because we feel the same way about the same country. Maybe there are other things at work, too. But I do feel, without wishing in the slightest to minimize the difference between being a Christian and being a Jew, that they are, in their love for Israel, part of my family.

  • Israel's policy quacks
    By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - March 17, 2006  If a doctor treated a breast cancer patient by amputating her big toe, he would doubtlessly be kicked out of medicine. Medical quackery is punished today. Sadly, the same cannot necessarily be said of public policy malpractice.

  • What is a 'Supporter of Israel'?
    By Mark Gold - IsraPundit.com - March 17, 2006  Israel has no shortage of avowed detractors. It also has many genuine avid supporters. Even more people and institutions claim to "support Israel." But what does "supporting Israel" really mean?

    TheThe Mountains of Israel is an exciting and refreshing new perspective on the Arab-Israeli conflict, clearly outlining how God is fulfilling His Word in modern-day Israel.

  • Gottem! Israeli justice catches up with Arab assassins
    By Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - March 14, 2006

    Four-and-a-half years after they murdered Israeli tourism minister Rehavam Ze’evi, justice finally caught up with a gang of “Palestinian” assassins Tuesday after IDF forces surrounded the Jericho jail where they have been enjoying the protection of the Palestinian Authority.

    The drama began Tuesday morning after US and British observers were ordered by their governments to leave the prison where they have been monitoring the incarceration of the five Arab killers, including leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Ahmed Saadat.

    Within 20 minutes, IDF forces using tanks, bulldozers and helicopters surrounded the jail and, using loudspeakers, called on all the prisoners to come out and give themselves up.

    Tanks shells and air-to-ground missiles were fired into the prison, and walls were knocked down by the armor-plated earth-moving equipment amid promises by an IDF colonel that Israel was determined to arrest the wanted men or kill them. No negotiations would be held.

    A sixth prisoner, Fuad Shoubaki, who masterminded an illegal massive weapons shipment to the PA in 2002, was also being sought by the IDF.

    After initially refusing to leave, a number of prisoners came out, some stripping down to their underwear and approaching the Israeli troops with their hands in the air.

    But Saadat, speaking from inside the prison by telephone to the Arabic TV station Al Jazeera, swore that he and his fellow killers would not surrender but fight to the death.

    Meanwhile, in efforts to get world governments to intervene and stop the Israeli action, "Palestinians" kidnapped as many as 17 foreigners in the Gaza Strip and threatened to kill them.

    Hours later, however, after Britain and the US laid the blame for the events at the PA's door, the six wanted men gave themselves up.

    Saadat is believed to have arranged the killing of Minister Ze’evi, who was shot dead in a Jerusalem hotel on October 17, 2001.

    Together with four accomplices, Saadat sought protection in Yasser Arafat’s Ramallah compound, which was besieged by the IDF.

    In an agreement brokered by the US and UK, Israel agreed to the men being placed in a PA jail provided they were monitored by US and British observers.

    After the Hamas victory in the “Palestinian” elections, the victorious terror group vowed to free the killers.

    Last week PA president Mahmoud Abbas also said he intended to let them out of jail.
