LONDON There is "no hope" of reconciliation with Israel, and Palestinians will continue using human bombs as their leading weapon, the official news agency of the Palestinian Authority says.

From its head office in Gaza City, an area where Israel has not been active during "Operation Defensive Shield," the WAFA news agency also called for Palestinians to reject American proposals.

Declaring that Palestinians would not submit to American dictates, it said the Palestinian leadership had "broken the chains of submission" and was willing to pay the price, "high as it might be."

Would that high price begin with the death of Terrorfat? Let's have the Israeli's do that tomorrow. The Palestinian Arabs are liars and I can't believe we still deal with them.

The analysis warned that the United States should "anticipate and be prepared to act to prevent the worst."

It said, "Fighting weaponry is possible, but fighting a human bomb is impossible because it is the weapon of the individual and it is hidden deep inside the individual's brain and it is unseen."

Sounds like a threat against the USA to me, anyone else??

I liked Kissinger's take on talks...the US should apply real pressure on Israel only when it makes real sense to do so, not when threats are made against the US. OR while EU pressure is on the US to reign in Israel...I think Powell should make a round trip, back to Washington and returning to Arafat...by SAILBOAT!!! In the meantime, Israel can continue its "shield" operation and ensure that Hizbullah knows that firing rockets at Israeli soil hurts alot!!!

Peter Hashwari will say "The reasonable demands made by Palestinians have been rejected by the US. The Palestinians say they can't stop the terror bombing until the troops are gone... (even though the terror bombing started months BEFORE the troops went in). He'll interview his ex-GF Hanan Hashwari about why the Israeli's are butchering her people".

Noone answers my question!! Who was the last President/PM/King of an independent state called Palestine??

MORAL CLARITY
An honorable, moral solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Isn't the only honorable way to "solve" the Arab-Israeli conflict through the use "ethnic cleansing?" (And by that term I mean the polite, but forceful removal of all 3 million Pali from Eretz Yisrael -- which is not "genocide", as some on the Left misuse the term.) Let me explain.

The current wave of "suicide" bombers (a misnomer, since their primary goal is not suicide but the mass murder of civilians) is unprecedented and unrelenting. But it should not be unexpected. It is the direct (and obviously planned) result of brainwashing that started with Pali children as young as kindergarteners. Look at the faces of the babies in the pictures above. What vomitous horror - visiting this upon their heads. What unspeakable evil.

The Palestinian descent into barbarism does not have some dimly-lit origin. The homicidal-bombers are not some unforseen phenomenom that sprung forth from the "hopelessness" of the populace (as the PA "leaders" would have us believe). They are part and parcel of the war machine created by the PA to wreak systematic havoc on Israel. Someone was paid to train -- or more accurately, brainwash -- the Pali youth. Someone was paid to buy the explosives and make the bombs. Someone was paid to search out and plan a path to a weak spot in Israeli defenses. Someone was paid to store the bombs and then give these homicidal-bombers their weapons. Someone was paid to videotape their farewell messages. Someone was paid to transport these homicidal-bombers across security lines. Someone paid the family to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars specifically for their "martyrdom." And, as we are now learning, those paymasters include Yassir Arafat, Saddam Hussein and the Saudi elite.

The PA has not been preparing its people for peace, but radicalizing them for the sole purpose of destroying Israel. The PA has appointed militant clerics who preach hate and "martyrdom". By doing so, they have knowingly turned this into a religious war, one in which compromise is heretical. And in doing so, the Palestinians have rejected the Oslo premise that the conflict is about borders, in which compromise may be a solution. Indeed, as Henry Kissinger has noted: The result of Arafat's strategy of hatred is now known: Pali society cannot co-exist in peace with Israel. Recent polls tell the story clearly. Over 87% of the Palis support terror operations that murder Israeli civilians. Given these numbers, there is NO POSSIBILITY of a negotiated settlement that would be honored by the Palis within their lifetime. Arafat has filled the Palis with visceral hate to prepare them for unrelenting war. He has brainwashed an entire generation of youngsters to become suicide bombers. He has unleashed almost 10 years of official "judeo-nazi" indoctrination on the Pali people. Arafat has committed crimes not only against the entire populace of Israel, but against Palestinians and their children as well. Truly, these are Crimes against Humanity.

Current conditions make ethnic cleansing not only justified, but morally required. As antithetical as it sounds to liberal ears, ethnic cleansing is literally the only humane solution. To pursue a negotiated settlement is akin to locking a tiger and a human with a gun in the same cage. Assign the roles to whomever you wish, but the result is the same. Someone is eventually going to be killed, maybe both.

The world community's role in this to date has been to create this inhumane spectacle, this caged, semitic death match. The world community's response going forward ought to be the equivalent of an "Allied invasion of Nazi Germany" because nothing less will suffice to rid the world of this monstrosity. Eject all Arab peoples from Gaza and the West Bank (because once you eliminate the terrorists, their supporters and their families, virtually nobody is left). Then round up the PA "leaders" (including "clerics" and "teachers"), and put them on trial for their Crimes against Humanity. If they are found guilty, hang them in public.

And to the extent that this PA policy was conducted, funded, supported, promoted, or otherwise enabled by their Arab bretheren (notably Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia) then it is incumbent upon these countries to pay for their sins by taking in the Palis. Arabs created this mess. Let Arabs bear the toll for the human misery they created.

Even Tom Friedman of the New York Times has come around, finally grasping the global ramifications of Arafat's evil: What is needed is the elimination of this cancer on humanity. End it quickly before more innocent lives are lost. End it now or it will escalate to Weapons of Mass Destruction. End it clearly and with finality so that there is absolutely NO ambiguity that civilization finds this abhorent. If nothing else, as a sop to liberal sensibilities, end it for the children. Moral clarity demands nothing less.

Typical Arafat tactic: say one thing to his people, and, then, say something else contrary.

I hope the U.S. position now becomes akin to "You made your bed, Yasser, now lay in it." And we let Ariel go after these murderers.

No, this is far beyond the "talk" stage. Israel's only choice ( and ours ) is to hammer, hurt, and harm those responsible for terrorism so badly that they will never, ever think or even dream of attacking again without mortal fear.

A subtitle to this should be "Coming soon to a theatre or mall near you...."
We- and the rest of the civilized world- are next....

Arafat stuck his finger again over at the US --after the Powell Appeasement visit.

Arafat has joined his wife as stating that they will continue to order homocide bombings
and they have done so despite Powell's accomodation to a known murderer/hijacker/terrorist.


Today, due to groveling by the US State Dept. reliance is made on a terrorist:

Palestinians vow to keep using suicide bombers

Why would they stop now? Sending over Powell to grovel in front of Arafart has demonstrated that homicide bombings can achieve political results. The mad bombers are now encouraged to step up attacks and start them up in other countries.

if suicide bombing is allowed to work in Israel, then, like hijacking and airplane bombing, it will be copied and will eventually lead to a bomber... with a nuclear device threatening entire nations

Just a matter of time...

This is the official policy of the Palestinian Authority, not some bogus statement Arafat put forth under pressure from the United States.

The statement also seems to imply that the Pals will not limit their mass murders to Israel but want it to spread to the United States.

How is it possible that people don't understand what's going on in the Middle East? Someone just called into Fox to make an on-air commentary, and said regarding the picture of the little girl with fake explosives strapped to her body: "Well, it was only 10 years that our kids used to play cowboys and indians."

Yeah, that's really a moral equivalent. Give me a f***ing break. What an idiot.

We need to make it clear that we will find those who ordered or sponsored the bombing and kill them quickly.
If that doesn't deter them, we need to make it clear with more drastic means that the bomber's cause will be harmed beyond belief, with massive and disproportionate destruction.

These incursions have solved nothing

Blasphemy! These incursions have given Israel and FR a chance to beat our chests and enjoy "kickin' ass and takin' names". Two activities very much cherished around here.

Go away! You must be a pallie sympathizer terrorist.

Look here's a picture of a palestinian kid! "Peace Homies!"

Yesterday's Palestinian commentary lashed out at Mr. Powell, saying, "The USA minister should have come to the region with less hatred to the Palestinians, and with much less spite toward the Arabs."

What "Palestinians"? Where are they? There are Jordanians, Egyptians (murderous ones like Arafat) and other Arabs but I've yet to hear anyone speak in "Palestinian". Why? Because there is no "Palestinian" language or culture or scholars or poets or artists. No dog catchers for that matter.

What's happening is religious warfare. Nothing else. Islam intends to drive Israel into the sea. And the rest of us too if it gets the chance. Note 9/11.

Islam. Islam. Islam. Imagine a "religion" that takes a small child and teaches it to kill another child. Islam worships itself and one way it does so is by human sacrifice. Not the kind of human sacrifice we are used to when one person gives of themselves for others. No, Islam promotes REAL human sacrifice. Just like the Aztecs. Islam is that backward. Perfect for it's followers. Who appear to be not the brightest bulbs on the planet.

At least if they continue to use human bombs as their weapon of choice we know we can eliminate the Pali population sooner or later. Freaking animals.

The only way to stop suicide bombers is to have a successful peace settlement. The PA must then forcefully prosecute those associated with the bombings with either life sentences or death.

The only way to stop suicide bombers is to have a successful peace settlement. The PA must then forcefully prosecute those associated with the bombings with either life sentences or death. posted by doc The PA is paying for, recruiting, and championing the homicidal bombers! Why this fen continues to fester is evident in your vacuous commentary ... the Palestinian Authority is a terrorist organization determined to destroy and obliterate Isael. The only 'palestinian state' the PA is willing to recognize is one situated directly where ISrael used to be. Ain't gonna happen, so the palestinian problem will remain until the King of Kings settles the issues. Palestinians have the full support of the rich Saudis and other Islamicists, so why should they stop sending their children through Molech's fires? This demonic evil is ancient, not something new since Israel became a modern nation. Demons feed on hate. Palis enjoy hating. The Saudis are praying to Allah that the Israelis continue to exist, so the Palis don't turn and bite the Saudi fatcats.

Thats right, by pressing Sharon to stop defending his innocent citizens and going to TerrorFat and begging him to stop we have legitimized and rewarded their terror tactics. Oh, the Bush Doctrine is dead also.
