SENATOR LIEBERMAN'S COUSIN KIDNAPPED IN WEST BANK
Hillel Lieberman, a missing Jewish settler feared kidnapped and killed
by Palestinians, is a cousin of U.S. Democratic Vice-Presidential Candidate
Joseph Lieberman, according to sources in the Jewish settler movement in
the West Bank. The senator has been apprised of his cousin's disappearance
and is closely following efforts to secure his release, the sources said
Sunday. Israeli security forces have opened a widespread search for Lieberman,
36, a resident of Elon Moreh in the West Bank and a father of eight, who
has been missing since Friday night. Israeli media have said he was was
last seen en route to a demonstration against the Israeli army's evacuation
of the Joseph's Tomb shrine in Nablus. Hillel Lieberman's father, a rabbi,
is a first cousin of the senator.
JEWISH MOBS ATTACK PALESTINIANS IN NABLUS SUNDAY NIGHT
ISRAELI POLICE DO NOTHING
MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.Org - Washington - 10/08/00:
At about 7.00 PM today, a mob numbering at 1, 000 left the Jewish town
Upper Nazareth and descended upon the neighboring Arab town of Nazareth,
some holding clubs and other having firearms. They broke into the Eastern
Neighborhood of Nazareth and started hitting and shooting indiscriminately
at its inhabitants. The Israeli police
stood aside and did not interfere, but when Palestinian inhabitants of Nazareth rallied to defend themselves, the police attacked them - first with tear gas and later with live ammunition. There are many wounded, and at least one Arab inhabitant was killed. At the time of writing, the police is still shooting at inhabitants of Nazareth.
Today's attack followed an attack yesterday upon the Arabs who live in Upper Nazareth itself, which included an attack upon the home of Knesset Member Azmi Bishara. Then, too, the Israeli police stood aside.
Nazareth seems not an isolated case. Reports of the same kind are coming
from different places, both from the occupied territories where armed settlers
are reported to be simultaneously attacking many Palestinian villages and
towns as well as the Arab neigborhoods in East Jerusalem. The simultaneity
and the exact similarity in tactics suggests preplanning and coordination.
