    Israel's Supreme Court has approved the expulsion of relatives of a Palestinian militant from the West Bank to the Gaza Strip. In a landmark ruling, a nine-judge panel upheld an order issued last month against the brother and sister of a Palestinian suspected of organising suicide bombings. It said a third Palestinian related to another militant suspected of two shooting attacks near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank should be set free. Palestinian officials called the decision a "black day for human rights" and said they might file a complaint with the UN Security Council and the International Criminal...

    Israel accused Syria yesterday of allowing up to 200 militants linked to Osama bin Laden's al-Qa'eda network to settle in southern Lebanon. The newspaper Ha'aretz, quoting "various intelligence services", said Syria had also provided sanctuary for bin Laden's son, Omar, before and after the September 11 attacks in America. The leader of the September 11 hijackers, Mohamed Atta, visited Syria two or three times, the newspaper said. The information was published amid rising tension between Israel and Syria, following the death of an Israeli soldier in a raid by Syrian-backed Hizbollah guerrillas across the Lebanese border. Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, the Israeli...

    IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon said "the current Palestinian leadership does not recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish State and is trying to destroy Israel in stages." Israel and the Palestinians are "at war," Yaalon declared, and Israel must win this war at all costs - otherwise, Palestinian terror would spread like a cancer throughout the region. Left-wing politicians attacked Yaalon for giving a political-diplomatic speech. Yaalon addressed a conference organized in Jerusalem yesterday by the Chief Rabbinate ahead of the coming Jewish High Holy Days. Although Yaalon refused to begin speaking until journalists left the...
