            Combat zone? Rozwalanie domu jakiegos tam doktora to jest "combat"? I pewnie
            daja medale za gorliwe wypelnianie obowiazkow bojowych? Moze nawet kierowca
            buldozera dostanie krzyz za odwage.

            Nawet Wehrmacht nieczesto takie rzeczy robil. Za to w Einsatzkommando SS zawsze
            byli chetnie, zeby spacyfikowac wioske i roztrselac jej mieszkancow.

        Pewnie nic, bo co moglby powiedziec?

        Albo powie, ze to tragiczny wypadek, ale nie mozemy dac sie zwiesc propagandzie
        i nadal musimy isc ramie w ramie z naszym "bracmi" z Izraela, naprzod ku nowemu

        dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good
        both for America and for the world; that such leadership requires military
        strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle; and that too few
        political leaders today are making the case for global leadership"

        Bynajmniej nie jest to manifest jakiejs skrajnie prawicowo-faszystowskiej
        organizacji. To cytat z pierwszej strony PNAC (Project for New American
        Century), ktorego czlonkami sa m.in. Jeane Kirkpatrick, Norman Podhoretz,
        Robert Kagan, a takze William Bennett, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Armitage, Donald
        Rumsfeld i s-ka.

        Date: 2003-02-20 14:31:24 PST


        THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION


        1). Richard Perle----One of Bush's foreign policy
        advisors, he is the chairman of the Pentagon's Defense
        Policy Board. A very likely Israeli government agent,
        Perle was expelled from Senator Henry Jackson's office
        in the 1970's after the National Security Agency (NSA)
        caught him passing Highly-Classified (National
        Security) documents to the Israeli Embassy. He later
        worked for the Israeli weapons firm, Soltam.

        2). Paul Wolfowitz----Deputy Defense Secretary, and
        member of Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the
        Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close associate of Perle, and
        reportedly has close ties to the Israeli military. His
        sister lives in Israel. Wolfowitz is the number two
        leader within the administration behind this Iraq war
        mongering.

        3). Douglas Feith----Under Secretary of Defense and
        Policy Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close
        associate of Perle and served as his Special Counsel.
        Like Perle and the others, Feith is a pro-Israel
        extremist, who has advocated anti-Arab policies in the
        past. He is closely associated with the extremist
        group, the Zionist Organization of America, which even
        attacks Jews that don't agree with its extremist
        views. Feith frequently speaks at ZOA conferences.
        Feith runs a small law firm, Feith and Zell, which
        only has one International office, in Israel. The
        majority of their legal work is representing Israeli
        interests. His firm's own website stated, prior to his
        appointment, that Feith "represents Israeli Armaments
        Manufacturer." Feith basically represents the Israeli
        War Machine. Feith, like Perle and Wolfowitz, are
        campaigning hard for this Israeli proxy war against
        Iraq.

        4). Edward Luttwak----Member of the National Security
        Study Group of the Department of Defence at the
        Pentagon. Luttwak is reportedly an Israeli citizen and
        has taught in Israel. He frequently writes for Israeli
        and pro-Israeli newspapers and journals. Luttwak is an
        Israeli extremist whose main theme in many of his
        articles is the necessity of the U.S. waging war
        against Iraq.

        5). Henry Kissinger-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
        Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board
        under Perle. For detailed information about
        Kissinger's evil past, read Seymour Hersch's book
        (Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House).
        Kissinger had a part in the Watergate crimes,
        Southeast Asia mass murders, Chile dictatorship, and
        more recently served as Serbian Dictator Slobodan
        Milosevic's Advisor. He consistently advocates going
        to war against Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of
        the U.S.

        6). Dov Zakheim----Under Secretary of Defense,
        Comptroller, and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the
        Department of Defense. He is an ordained rabbi and
        reportedly holds Israeli citizenship. Zakheim attended
        Jew's College in London and became an ordained
        Orthodox Jewish Rabbi in 1973. He was adjunct
        professor at New York's Jewish Yeshiva University.
        Zakheim is close to the Israeli lobby.

        7). Kenneth Adelman-----One of many Pentagon Advisors,
        Adelman also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy
        Board under Perle, and is another extremist pro-Israel
        advisor, who supports going to war against Iraq.
        Adelman frequently is a guest on Fox News, and often
        expresses extremist and often ridiculus anti-Arab and
        anti-Muslim views. Through his hatred or stupidity, he
        actually called Arabs "anti-Semitic" on Fox News
        (11/28/2001), when he could have looked it up in the
        dictionary to find out that Arabs bydefinition are
        Semites.

        8). I. Lewis Libby -----Vice President Dick Cheney's
        Chief of Staff. The chief pro-Israel Jewish advisor to
        Cheney, it helps explains why Cheney is so gun-ho to
        invade Iraq. Libby is longtime associate of Wolfowitz.
        Libby was also a lawyer for convicted felon and
        Israeli spy Mark Rich, whom Clinton pardoned, in his
        last days as president.

        9). Robert Satloff----U.S. National Security Council
        Advisor, Satloff was the executive director of the
        Israeli lobby's "think tank," Washington Institute for
        Near East Policy. Many of the Israeli lobby's
        "experts" come from this front group, like Martin
        Indyk.

        10). Elliott Abrams-----National Security Council
        Advisor. He previously worked at Washington-based
        "Think Tank" Ethics and Public Policy Center. During
        the Reagan Adminstration, Abrams was the Assistant
        Secretary of State, handling, for the most part, Latin
        American affairs. He played an important role in the
        Iran-Contra Scandal, which involved illegally selling
        U.S. weapons to Iran to fight Iraq, and illegally
        funding the contra rebels fighting to overthrow
        Nicaragua's Sandinista government. He also actively
        deceived three congressional committees about his
        involvement and thereby faced felony charges based on
        his testimony. Abrams pled guilty in 1991 to two
        misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year's probation
        and 100 hours of community service. A year later,
        former President Bush (Senior) granted Abrams a full
        pardon. He was one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews
        in the Reagan Administration's State Department.

        11). Marc Grossman-----Under Secretary of State for

      Israeli raid leaves 10 dead

      By AP


      NUSSEIRAT REFUGEE CAMP, Gaza Strip -- Israeli troops firing from tanks and
      helicopters battled Palestinian gunmen in this refugee camp yesterday and
      rounded up hundreds of men in a nearby town.

      Ten Palestinians, including a 4-year-old girl, were killed in intense fighting.

      Israeli forces entered the Nusseirat refugee camp about 4 a.m. as residents
      headed to the mosques for morning prayers and farmers began harvesting their
      crops to take to the Gaza City market, witnesses said.

      The main target of the raid was Mohammed Saafen, 34, a leader of the militant
      Islamic Jihad group in central Gaza. Troops surrounded the Saafen family's
      house and ordered residents to come out, said a neighbour, Hazem Khatib. All
      did, except for the wanted man, who shot at troops. He was killed in the
      ensuing gun battle.

      Yasser Arafat, meanwhile, suffered defeat in the Palestinian parliament when
      legislators rejected his demand that a cabinet formed by a future prime
      minister be presented to the Palestinian leader.

      As well yesterday, international pro-Palestinian activists disputed a claim by
      the Israeli military that the death of U.S. protester Rachel Corrie, run over
      by a bulldozer in Gaza on Sunday, was an accident. The International Solidarity
      Movement said Corrie was visible to the driver of the bulldozer as she stood
      before the vehicle.

      Hi friends and family, and others,
      I have been in Palestine for two weeks and one hour now, and I still have very
      few words to describe what I see. It is most difficult for me to think about
      what's going on here when I sit down to write back to the United States.
      Something about the virtual portal into luxury. I don't know if many of the
      children here have ever existed without tank-shell holes in their walls and the
      towers of an occupying army surveying them constantly from the near horizons. I
      think, although I'm not entirely sure, that even the smallest of these children
      understand that life is not like this everywhere. An eight-year-old was shot
      and killed by an Israeli tank two days before I got here, and many of the
      children murmur his name to me - Ali - or point at the posters of him on the
      walls. The children also love to get me to practice my limited Arabic by asking
      me, "Kaif Sharon?" "Kaif Bush?" and they laugh when I say, "Bush
      Majnoon", "Sharon Majnoon" back in my limited arabic. (How is Sharon? How is
      Bush? Bush is crazy. Sharon is crazy.) Of course this isn't quite what I
      believe, and some of the adults who have the English correct me: "Bush mish
      Majnoon" ... Bush is a businessman. Today I tried to learn to say, "Bush is a
      tool", but I don't think it translated quite right. But anyway, there are eight-
      year-olds here much more aware of the workings of the global power structure
      than I was just a few years ago.
      Nevertheless, no amount of reading, attendance at conferences, documentary
      viewing and word of mouth could have prepared me for the reality of the
      situation here. You just can't imagine it unless you see it - and even then you
      are always well aware that your experience of it is not at all the reality:
      what with the difficulties the Israeli army would face if they shot an unarmed
      US citizen, and with the fact that I have money to buy water when the army
      destroys wells, and the fact, of course, that I have the option of leaving.
      Nobody in my family has been shot, driving in their car, by a rocket launcher
      from a tower at the end of a major street in my hometown. I have a home. I am
      allowed to go see the ocean. When I leave for school or work I can be
      relatively certain that there will not be a heavily armed soldier waiting
      halfway between Mud Bay and downtown Olympia at a checkpoint with the power to
      decide whether I can go about my business, and whether I can get home again
      when I'm done. As an afterthought to all this rambling, I am in Rafah: a city
      of about 140,000 people, approximately 60% of whom are refugees - many of whom
      are twice or three times refugees. Today, as I walked on top of the rubble
      where homes once stood, Egyptian soldiers called to me from the other side of
      the border, "Go! Go!" because a tank was coming. And then waving and "What's
      your name?". Something disturbing about this friendly curiosity. It reminded me
      of how much, to some degree, we are all kids curious about other kids. Egyptian
      kids shouting at strange women wandering into the path of tanks. Palestinian
      kids shot from the tanks when they peak out from behind walls to see what's
      going on. International kids standing in front of tanks with banners. Israeli
      kids in the tanks anonymously - occasionally shouting and also occasionally
      waving - many forced to be here, many just agressive - shooting into the houses
      as we wander away.
      I've been having trouble accessing news about the outside world here, but I
      hear an escalation of war on Iraq is inevitable. There is a great deal of
      concern here about the "reoccupation of Gaza". Gaza is reoccupied every day to
      various extents but I think the fear is that the tanks will enter all the
      streets and remain here instead of entering some of the streets and then
      withdrawing after some hours or days to observe and shoot from the edges of the
      communities. If people aren't already thinking about the consequences of this
      war for the people of the entire region then I hope you will start.
      My love to everyone. My love to my mom. My love to smooch. My love to fg and
      barnhair and sesamees and Lincoln School. My love to Olympia.

      Mama,
      Now the Israeli army has actually dug up the road to Gaza, and both of the
      major checkpoints are closed. This means that Palestinians who want to go and
      register for their next quarter at university can't. People can't get to their
      jobs and those who are trapped on the other side can't get home; and
      internationals, who have a meeting tomorrow in the West Bank, won't make it. We
      could probably make it through if we made serious use of our international
      white person privilege, but that would also mean some risk of arrest and
      deportation, even though none of us has done anything illegal.
      The Gaza Strip is divided in thirds now. There is some talk about
      the "reoccupation of Gaza", but I seriously doubt this will happen, because I
      think it would be a geopolitically stupid move for Israel right now. I think
      the more likely thing is an increase in smaller below-the-international-outcry-
      radar incursions and possibly the oft-hinted "population transfer".
      I am staying put in Rafah for now, no plans to head north. I still feel like
      I'm relatively safe and think that my most likely risk in case of a larger-
      scale incursion is arrest. A move to reoccupy Gaza would generate a much larger
      outcry than Sharon's assassination-during-peace-negotiations/land grab
      strategy, which is working very well now to create settlements all over, slowly
      but surely eliminating any meaningful possibility for Palestinian self-
      determination. Know that I have a lot of very nice Palestinians looking after
      me. I have a small flu bug, and got some very nice lemony drinks to cure me.
      Also, the woman who keeps the key for the well where we still sleep keeps
      asking me about you. She doesn't speak a bit of English, but she asks about my
      mom pretty frequently - wants to make sure I'm calling you.
      Love to you and Dad and Sarah and Chris and everybody.

      (To her mother)
      Love you. Really miss you. I have bad nightmares about tanks and bulldozers
      outside our house and you and me inside. Sometimes the adrenaline acts as an
      anesthetic for weeks and then in the evening or at night it just hits me again -
      a little bit of the reality of the situation. I am really scared for the
      people here. Yesterday, I watched a father lead his two tiny children, holding
      his hands, out into the sight of tanks and a sniper tower and bulldozers and
      Jeeps because he thought his house was going to be exploded. Jenny and I stayed
      in the house with several women and two small babies. It was our mistake in
      translation that caused him to think it was his house that was being exploded.
      In fact, the Israeli army was in the process of detonating an explosive in the
      ground nearby - one that appears to have been planted by Palestinian
      resistance.
      This is in the area where Sunday about 150 men were rounded up and contained
      outside the settlement with gunfire over their heads and around them, while
      tanks and bulldozers destroyed 25 greenhouses - the livelihoods for 300 people.
      The explosive was right in front of the greenhouses - right in the point of
      entry for tanks that might come back again. I was terrified to think that this
      man felt it was less of a risk to walk out in view of the tanks with his kids
      than to stay in his house. I was really scared that they were all going to be
      shot and I tried to s
