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.

Indeed, as I remarked on another thread, its becoming more obvious that the Palestinians killed the UN probe of Jenin when they realized they couldn't fake the massacre they invented.

Too bad we can't just disband the entire UN.

Yeah, but the Massacre of 500 Palestinians in Jenin was headline news for days. The new spin the UN is putting on it will do well to fill a paragraph on page 10. And you will notice that the blame for 'never knowing exactly what took place' still lies with the Israelis for not allowing the UN's 'chosen ivestigators' into the area.

There were a number of Freepers who were anguished about the 'Jenin massacre'. I guess that they are going to tell us the the Palestinian Authority is part of the Jewish lobby./sarcasm.

Mr. Prendergast said that "with every passing day, it becomes more difficult to determine what happened" in Jenin.

Nonsense! If you want to discover the truth just disregard everything the Pali's or the U.N. says.

Gosh, if the Palestinians managed to kill 33 Israeli soldiers while only losing 56 of their own people, that's practically a victory for them.

Wonder if the European media will disseminate the truth after promulgating the lie.

Annan: "We, at the Imperial Holy UN, remind you that although this investigation is called off,
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.
"

He insisted that Israel had tried but failed, thanks to the heavy fighting, to destroy the entire warren of homes in the camp that had housed 11,000 people.

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.

Kattracks has posted duplicates of lots of stuff, and doesn't get them nuked or blocked. I don't really care who wins the posting race, but there seems to be a double standard concerning duplicate-headline clutter. There really ought to be a way that the admin moderator can transfer all posts to one thread.
