Now they are using bulldozers to pull down the compound.

We have yet to see a bulldozer mow down this compound......

Well, this is something I hadn't heard before, that under Arabfat's compound is a large petrol supply tank so that could be why the Israelis are treading carefully here, I would guess. Just heard that from some aide to yassir on FNC.

Look close at the shot of the crowd on TV..the Muslims have the women leading the parade..cowards hiding behind the women...so IF the women get killed they can whine about that..If the troops will not shoot women they get to parade at will

FNC's Rita Cosby: Hundreds, maybe thousands are headed for Arafat's compound....this is becoming a very volatile situation......

I'm sure the IDF has enough munitions...

If an estimated 200 people are holed up in there it must be pretty darn crowded.

Oh, what a pethetic whiner that aide is. Damn this is entertaining. "We call on the Amerocans to intervene whaa whaa whaa."

Isreal: We will not harm AraRAT.
(But if he chokes on the dust as we take this building down sloooooly, it must have been the will of Allah)

MSNBC is showing animal stories about bears. CNN-HN has long loving profiles of some has been singer who is probably on their corporate record label. (Which is it so I can boycott them too?) CNN has the Captial Gang. Funny, FOX is the only real news network left. I hadn't realized that had happened, but it has.

They may have a big bulldozer, but they aren't using it on these buildings.....If they were, these building would almost be leveled. And they are not......

Agreed. There has been erroneous reporting. First, almost all of the buildings have been leveled. Then, a few have been leveled. Very sketchy info.

It's a shovel arm that is pulling the bricks off. You can clearly see that the interior is now visible. The machine appears off and on in the picture.

CNBC has a golf tourney on. Not highlights, full coverage! This is a pretty poor excuse for a news network.

Hence it's microscopic rating insofaras news service goes.

CNN had a news update and referred to those held up in Arafarts compound as militants. They just can't seem to say that word terrorists.

They're contracted to carry the Senior Tour. In any event, if there weren't a tourney on, they'd be wall-to-wall with infomercials...

Classic Arab/Islamist. Most cowardly people on the face of the earth.

No wonder the French like them so much.

��5{��������tting here on the pc/internet and watching live FoxNews....and eating cookies.....and wondering if this is how the spectators at the Roman Colleseum felt--waiting.....

HA!! That's the funniest post I've seen in a while, especially since I stopped apologizing for being white a few years ago and started proclaiming that I was half Viking and half Roman so look out!

Arafat rendered homeless

Not another disenfranchised dictator?!? McKinney can't take him in, she's out of a job now. How about Palm Beach? If he hurries, he can vote in the November elections!

That guy kept babbling on about the oil and gas under Arafat's compound, and how there might be an explosion.

Correct translation: We've got this huge weapons cache hidden in the compound, and if the Israeli's happen to fire too close, it might explode.

What are you talking about? He can vote in the November elections in Palm Beach even if he's dead. The only thing that would exclude him now would be joining the United States military.

I'm sure you're right about that, and I must have lost my mind for a moment, because I've been reading about al-taqiyah or taqiyya a lot lately. I should have remembered that moslems have no compunction about the use of lies and dissimulation against the infidel (that would be us).

I was just learning that not a word any of them say is to be trusted, and then for a moment there I believed the PA spokesman. What was I thinking? You hit it on the head, I'm quite sure.

chag Sameach!

The arabs have a proper sukkah now, with the sky visible, and no permanent walls.

BTW, the area is "Judea" -- not the west bank.

Every once in a while, you folks make me wish I had a tele, but at least y'all keep me informed. Guess CNN/MSNBC and the other arab networks are trying to find a spin to make this look like an Israeli defeat.

Please keep the news coming...

Why leave the office standing?

To avoid frightening small children who might walk by and see him?

Thanks. I tend to think of all territiry between the Jordan River (and extended longitude) and Israel proper as the West Bank. Judea is correct.
