GAZA CITY, Gaza, Oct 19, 2001 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Israeli troops on Saturday entered the West Bank town of Tulkarem An Qalqilya, which had been under control of the Palestinian Authority. Israeli troops now occupy the towns of Jenin, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Beit Jala and Beit Sahour, and have seized additional positions once controlled by the PA.

JERUSALEM, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Israeli troops killed three Palestinians in clashes as they advanced again into Palestinian-ruled territory early on Saturday to retaliate for the slaying of an Israeli cabinet minister this week.

Stoking fears that their year-old conflict is spinning out of control, Israeli troops and armoured vehicles crossed several hundred metres (yards) into the West Bank city of Tulkarm and Palestinian gunmen opened fire, Palestinian witnesses said. Two Palestinian police were killed trying to fight off the incursion, Palestinian medical sources said.

Israeli tanks and troops also moved 150 metres (yards) into the West Bank city of Qualqilya under cover of machine-gun fire, killing a Palestinian in front of his house as helicopters hovered overhead, Palestinian witnesses said.

Palestinian sources said the fatality was a member of the militant Hamas group.
The Israeli army did not immediately comment on the reports of the latest incursions into Palestinian-ruled territory in the wake of Wednesday's slaying of ultranationalist Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi by Palestinian militants.

The toll since Zeevi's assassination, which ended a brief lull in the fighting during which leaders on both sides had hoped for a resumption of negotiations, is 15 Palestinians and one Israeli killed, and dozens wounded.

It's neither nice nor smart to assassinate, murder or maim any Israeli. Talk time has ended. Israel and US are at war with terrorism, i.e. murderous Muslim fanatics. We're mad, and we're not going to take it anymore.

Isn't it sad to see that some people, who are otherwise "on our side," are completely brainwashed? Yeah they're gunning for children, Fred. Yes Zionism isn't a regional issue but a global source of misery. Yes, that must have been what messed up Zimbabwe! Pearl Harbor---ZIONISM!

Almost all Muslims to a man repeat this party line: Jews are to blame... bla-bla-bla... bloodthirsty Zionists... bla-bla-bla... This is a well orchestrated propaganda effort and many people succumb to it, even on FR...

I don't think AraFata$$ has any more chances left. His days are numbered. Same for Hammas and PLO. I am fully behind Israel on this one. They should eject all of those "Palestinian" squatters completely from the country. Let Jordan, Syria, and Saudi Arabia take care of their Arab brothers. Oh wait, they didn't want them either.

That is because they are ignorant. Israel has done almost everything we have asked them to during the Gulf war and the current war. It is about time the US Governement unleashes Israel on the palestinians. Everyone one of the males 12 and older are terrorists or terrorists in training. Eradicate them.

They don't know how reminiscent they are of Chomskyite anti-Americans. It's a simple formula.

1)Find one or two or three incidents out of a possible 1,000 where X(Israel, Zionists, the blacks, Americans,etc) acted in a negative manner or made a mistake.

2)If a mistake was made, find new 'evidence' that points to a diabolical conspiracy.

3)Ignore any evidence that points to the contradiction of your views. No matter how overwhelming, how credible the source, this must be ignored.

4)Repeat lies and distortions often.

5)It's OK to be a hypocrite. If ever the choice is between two sides, or views, always ignore all that might point to the other side being correct or moral or justified.

If now is not the right time, when will it be? Who cares about the coalition. They are just holding us back. Who cares if Pakastanis riot and overthrow the government. We will just nuke all their nuke sites. End of story. Their nukes cannot reach us. Yet.....

Use of coalition troops, bases, intel, airports, airspace, etc. is "holding us back"?

I guess those kids can throw a pretty mean rock, to be able to have them look like gunshot wounds. These are not kids any more than our 18 year olds serving in the military are kids.

Go over to a nice Pro terrorist site where your comments will be appreciated more.

You're either with us or against us. I take it from your comment you support the PLO and HAMAS. So you are aginst us.

Pro~Libertate!

We have the power and ability to use any damned airspace on this planet buster! We have a coalition with those two-faced SOB's at our convenience. They can bitch and whine and even go tell on us at the UN. They can do nothing to stop us when we have made up our minds.

Diplomacy be damned! Diplomacy went out the window when 6000 people were exploded, burned, or pulverized that awful morning. All of those countries have given at least moral support, if not outright financial support to the organizations that attacked us. And please, oh please tell me where my logic is at all deficient? I must need a lesson from annointed elites such as yourself to explain things, as I am a lowly dullard (with a 160+ I.Q.). BTW, Thank you sooooo much for acknowledging my prescence here and setting me straight. ()

No problem, it's full of decent, hard working people. The kind that understand that the world does not operate in the manner portrayed by Hollywood or collegiate theoriticians. Take a trip over to Inglewood or Compton tonight, take a long stroll and see how far diplomacy gets you in the REAL world.

coalition troops - What are you talking about? It seems to me it has been all us and to a lesser extent Brittain.

bases - That is why be have several aircraft carriers in the area. Plus, we can take any patch of land and buildings and make a base out of it. Who is going to stop us?

intel - Like we can trust them. Just look at the Saudis.

airports - same as what I said about bases.

airspace - This is not really an issue either. They shoot at our planes, we shoot their radar sites. They will not be able to stop us from going anywhere after awhile.

We are just being nice for the time being.

It was Arabs who murdered Americans, and yet we attack caucasians in Afghanistan. How's that for diplomacy? People talk about the Israeli lobby.. heck, it's the Arab lobby that controls the USA. The Arabs can fund and support the murder of Americans with impunity and then convince us to attack someone else in response.

I hope when the Afgani war is over we can move on and take care of Iraq, Syria and the gulf states who don't make a 100% effort to end their support of terrorists. The USA should take the same line Israel does. We want a 100% effort to prevent terrorism. Anything less by the Arab states is simply unacceptable.

"If now is not the right time, when will it be? Who cares about the coalition. They are just holding us back. "

I'm not sure that's the case. My thinking is that President Bush has adopted something of a "rope-a-dope" strategy.

By maintaining a "coalition" with Islamic states, inclucing some like Syria and Iran that sponsor terrorism, even Arafat's little nest of vipers, and then picking off the most immediate threats like bin Laden, the Taliban, and Hussein's Iraq, we are defusing a rapid escalation of the War on Terror (which I think will prove to be World War III) at a pace not of our choosing. That's what we're waiting for.

We just made some very important arrangements with Iran, which, if you read between the lines, allow us some use of their airspace. You think we're doing that just for Afghanistan? Hardly. This is to close off one of Sadaam Hussein's back doors.

Sooner of later, most of these terrorist states will peel off from the coalition, putting their necks in the noose as they do so. And each, in turn, will set itself up as the next target in the war.

Perhaps this is wishful thinking on my part, but I've reached this conclusion after watching the President's methods since taking office. He thrives on being underestimated. He makes "moderate" noises to get his foes to drop their guard enough to give him the edge. Once this happens, he usually returns to a position not too far from that of his base, thus keeping them in line by not allowing them to take him for granted.

The Arab Islamic states will betray us first. We'll hang them as necessary. Then perhaps Pakistan, the Turks, and the ethnic Turks of the Central Asian republics.

Russia and China will abide longer, as the War on Terror affords them the opportunity to put down Isamic zealots in their own territories.

Most of NATO, especially Britain and Italy (Berlusconi is dynamite) will stay firm with us.

At that point, their will be nothing to prevent us from overtly lining up with our natural allies in this, Israel and India.

I think the picture is far larger than we're giving our team credit for.

Pushtuns are descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes, so that might be the reason for the Arabic support for the strikes against them. Look closely at the faces of Pushtuns on TV - they look definitely Jewish

Hi Saberetooth. your analysis is very good and I agree almost wholeheartedly with all you have to say. I am however dismayed by the shortsighted so called "Hawks" on this board. I sometimes wonder how many of them are from the liberal left, and posing as Freepers on this board. Why in heavens name would a Freeper (If he really were one) be against our President and his strategic plan.

10 and 11 year old girls with Kalasknikovs? I don’t think this particular government of Israel is the one God had in mind to represent his “chosen people”. You’ve been misled by Zionist propaganda.
