JENIN, West Bank — Palestinian officials yesterday put the death toll at 56 in the two-week Israeli assault on Jenin, dropping claims of a massacre of 500 that had sparked demands for a U.N. investigation.
The official Palestinian body count, which is not disproportionate to the 33 Israeli soldiers killed in the incursion, was disclosed by Kadoura Mousa Kadoura, the director of Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement for the northern West Bank, after a team of four Palestinian-appointed investigators reported to him in his Jenin office.

See thread here in which even the Waffa the Official Palestinian News Agency says only 52 Palies were killed.
Nonsense! If you want to discover the truth just disregard everything the Pali's or the U.N. says.

we intend to persecute Christians, Jews, and Americans.
We also thank Mr. Arafat for his donated crosses and stunning gold artifacts,
which he sent me. Now before you go away,
be sure that you send the taxes and reparations that YOU Americans
owe me and my wife, Nane, to our New York address."

The irony is that, if the Israelis had desired to commit a masscre, they could have easily destroyed the entire Jenin area without the loss of a single Israeli soldier by simply using airpower and artillery.
You were so confused by the facts before... Things a little clearer now?
Please feel free to point out any duplicates I have posted within minutes of the original that have not been pulled.

What can I say to reply to someone who says that he does not know the truth, and he does not care what the truth is. At least Pontius Pilate was jesting when he washed his hands of the truth.
Paging Andrea Mitchell...
I would believe it. And just as soon as Arab/Muslim governments grant the same level of religious freedom to their citizens as Israel does to its, and as soon as Arab women have the same personal rights as Israeli women -- then I'll consider being neutral in this.
Then, to quote Dickens:
"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."
The American Jewish 'elite' is very conflicted by this new reality.
What America was sold in Kosovo was a total media drumbeat - Remember the stories of mass graves and the thousands of 'refugees?'
We worry about the poppy fields on Afghanistan but ignore the wholesalers and transporters of heroin - the KLA. Every government and media bureau knew the KLA was bad. Did it ever get published outside of a Mark Steyn-type column? No! Why? Our media wanted to paint the poor Kosovars sympathetically.
Even more ironic is the historical relationship between the Jews and Serbs. I just got back from Bosnia a few months ago. One of the officers in my unit, a First Lieutenant, is Jewish, and told me that the Serbs had shielded the Jews from the Nazis in WWII, and the Jews had recognized the fact in Jerusalem (something similar to the tribute paid to Oskar Schindler, I believe).
Does anybody have any knowledge of this? I had never heard it before, but the officer I mentioned was pretty certain of it, and it does make sense in light of the fact that the Nazis did use the Croats in the region to beat up on the Serbs (the Serbs being traditional allies of the Russians, and Slavic to boot, which bought them no favor with the Germans).
The UN probe into Jenin was nothing but a bad joke. The UN has never lifted a finger to condemn Palestinian homicide bombing or to call th PLO on their lies. Arafat is always the aggrieved party, the Palestian people are always the victims, and Israel always the aggressor.
"It's just a flesh wound, I'm really feeling much better now!"
Geraldo, on Hannity & Colmes last night, said that the "only good news" in the West Bank yesterday was that Israel had "finally" pulled out of Hebron. Well, I guess "fair and balanced" means you have a Geraldo around among all their sensible, just-the-facts reporters and their conservative commentators.
..... where the Swiss money laundering industry's drug-trafficer, gangster-politician and FRankensteinian Bureacracy-accomodating hotels are much more splendid.
As befits the wants of those who live their lives squandering the confiscated wealth of the World's Most Creative, Innovative, Productive, Industrious -- and all-around Most Splendid Men.
The confiscated wealth of Americans, that is!
Translation: Not only am I stupid, I am proud of it! Oh yeah, I am also ignorant and proud! Oh, I forgot... I hate the Jews, always have, always will! Sure, the Palis were caught in yet another lie, I see it's useless to deny it. But I will invent NEW and BETTER lies and then use them to cloak my hatred of the JEWS!!! Could you hold on? David Duke is calling me.
Israel believes it has the right to insult the rest of world. Arabs are old-school tribalists, and they would rather kill themselves than be insulted.
In that case, "I fart in their general direction! Their mother wears army boots, and they stink like goats! Hmm... I take that back, they don't stink like goats, they stink like the French!" So, now that they have been thouroughly insulted, when can we expect the hostilities to end due to spontaneous mass suicides across the region?
Israelis and Arabs have a lot more in common than you would believe. Both sides also have a lot of influence on the United States. Which they should not. Sanctions until the US is repaid every penny of foreign aid it has ever given to Israel.
Translation: I am only trying to PROVE to you that I really am stupid and ignorant! I only wish daddy woulda taught me to read instead of taking that belt to me day after day... then I would know that the US gives EQUAL aid to both Israel and Egypt as part of the 1979 peace treaty that Sadat signed with Israel. And I would also know that the US has been giving hundreds of millions of dollars to the PA, and then I would demand that that money be given back too. Could you hold on again, please??? Louis Farrakhan is calling me... oh, I am all tingly, it is such an honor!!! Did you know next month we are all going to on a European cruise??? We get a Synagogue burning stop in France, a Jew beating stop in Germany, and then as a finale we get to throw rocks with the Palestinians and shoot mortars with the Hizbullah! Sorry, I have to go, I can't keep Mr. F waiting, he gets upset and then neuters people.
