ARAFAT - ONE FAILURE, ONE DISASTER, AFTER ANOTHER

September 10, 2001

MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.Org - Washington - 9/10: Arafat readies to meet once again with Peres, even as his senior allies are gunned down, his top lieutenants ridiculously proclaim victory in Durban, the Arab League can't even manage to hold a summit meeting, the battle of Orient House was quickly given up, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers starts building facilities for the Israeli army, and 100+ more American F-16s (plus large numbers of the Arrow anti-missile missile) are now on order for shipment to Israel! This is the same Yasser Arafat who repeatedly promised his people that the many outrageous agreements he signed and the extraordinary corruption/repression of his regime would at least result in a indpendent Palestinian state, "absolutely, without doubt" no later than... Well...that's all past now. This is the same Arafat of course who then actually facilitated bringing the CIA right into the heart of the Palestinian areas, and who originally actually agreed to the apartheid-like formulations further dividing the Palestinians into Areas A,B,C, with still expanding settlements, by-pass "Jews only" roads, etc., ad infinitum. As even the prodigious American Palestinian writer known for his ties with the Arab regimes, Edward Said, recently put in print, nothing will truly improve for the Palestinians, and they have no real hope, as long as Yasser Arafat and his cronies are the ones calling the shots.

At the moment Arafat and associates have just blown their moment in Durban, the "final conference declaration" actually endorsing the very apartheid-like "peace process" so condemned by so many before and throughout the conference itself. And now, rather than rallying the Arab and Muslim worlds for the urgently needed political battle at the U.N. -- where the General Assembly has the power, and the Americans lack the veto, to suspend Israel just as was done to South Africa in its days of Apartheid -- Arafat is mostly concerned with a New York meeting with President George W. hoping to buy himself some more survival time and a continue inflow of millions to his coffers. Meanwhile, young and old, man and woman, occupied and Israeli citizens, despairing Palestinians are taking to blowing themselves up, unable to stand what their occupiers, and what their "leaders", have done to them.

ISRAEL CONFRONTS ENEMY WITHIN AFTER CATALOGUE OF CARNAGE

Day of killings sparked by first Israeli Arab suicide bomber

Suzanne Goldenberg in Jerusalem

[The Guardian - Jerusalem, Monday September 10, 2001]: A middle-aged man from Galilee carried out the first suicide attack by an Arab citizen of the Jewish state yesterday, confronting Israel with the prospect of waging war against the enemy within on a day of bombings, drive-by shootings and helicopter gunship strikes.

Seven people were killed in three separate attacks within the space of five hours, a rapid-fire sequence of events even by the standards of the year-old Palestinian uprising.

In the deadliest attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up near the platform of an open- air railway station in the northern coastal town of Nahariya, just as a train was pulling in from Tel Aviv. Three Israelis were killed and several dozen wounded.

"I was standing nearby and I heard a great explosion. It took me a minute to come to my senses and then I saw glass everywhere and I saw people running like crazy," a witness told Israeli television. "People were crying and hysterical."

Israeli radio and television said that the bomber was Mohammed Shaqir Habishi, 55, a father of six from the Galilee village of Kafr Abu Snein. The attack could signal the opening of a dangerous new front, which would pit Israel against an internal enemy: the 1m Arab citizens of the Jewish state. It also renders ineffective the Israeli army's proposals to protect Jewish civilians by declaring a swath of the West Bank a no-go area for Palestinians.

Thirteen Israeli Arabs were shot dead by riot police in the protests that convulsed the Galilee at the start of the uprising. Since then, Israeli Arabs have been largely removed from the uprising of their ethnic kin in the occupied West Bank and Gaza.

However, Israeli officials have been warning for weeks that militant Palestinian groups, such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad, are recruiting inside the Arab towns of the north, feeding off resentments about discrimination and neglect by successive Jewish governments.

Intelligence officials said that they had been hunting Habishi - described as a supporter of Hamas - for 10 days.

The day's catalogue of bloodshed began when a jeep overtook a van ferrying Israeli teachers to a school at a Jewish settlement in the Jordan valley on the eastern perimeters of the West Bank, spraying it with automatic rifle fire. The driver and a woman teacher were shot dead, and three others were wounded.

Two hours later, Habishi struck at the northern reaches of Israel, spewing nails and metal debris into a crowd of commuters.

Barely had Israeli helicopter gunships retaliated for that attack - with seven missiles launched on two offices of Yasser Arafat's Fatah organisation in Ramallah, and another attack on Jericho - when news came in of a second bombing inside the borders of the Jewish state.

Witnesses said a red Peugeot exploded beside a traffic light at the Beit Lid junction near the coastal city of Netanya, in cinerating the driver and four vehicles, including a bus; 11 people were hurt. Police said the bomber was heading for a bus stop used by Israeli soldiers when his deadly cargo exploded prematurely.

The cluster of attacks at the start of Israel's working week deepened a sense of siege as the prime minister, Ariel Sharon, convened his cabinet to discuss the military's proposals for no-go areas in the West Bank and to decide on further reprisals.

The violence also appeared to rule out the latest efforts for ceasefire talks between the foreign minister, Shimon Peres, and Mr Arafat, the Palestinian leader. Mr Peres said at the weekend that he hoped to hold three meetings with Mr Arafat.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion at Beit Lid, but the military wing of Hamas claimed the Nahariya bombing - before it emerged that the bomber was an Israeli Arab - and the rival Islamic Jihad said it had carried out the road ambush in the Jordan valley. However, a spokesman said that Mr Arafat was ultimately responsible for all violent acts committed by Palestinians. He also said he could see no point to the meetings.

"What is the use of such talks when Arafat speaks about peace and then turns around to instigate terrorist activities. That is what happened today," said Raanan Gissin, a spokesman for Mr Sharon. "What does this man want? Does he want peace, or does he want to continue to head a coalition of terror groups and to reign over a kingdom of terror?"

>From the West Bank city of Ramallah, a statement from Mr Arafat's Palestinian Authority disowned all three attacks, saying it "condemns all operations that target Israeli and Palestinian civilians".

ISRAELIS TO SET UP BUFFER ZONE IN WEST BANK
Suzanne Goldenberg in Jerusalem
The Guardian - Jerusalem, Friday September 7, 2001: Israel is poised to rewrite the map of the West Bank by banning Palestinians from a swath of land next to the green line that divides the occupied territories from the Jewish state.

Under the plans, which would further choke freedom of movement in the West Bank, Palestinians will be barred from approaching the Green Line unless they hold a pass from Israeli authorities. Those who disobey - especially at night when a curfew would be in place - could be shot.

The army's idea for imposing a line of separation along the Palestinian side of the frontier with Israel was leaked to local media this week, and immediately drew condemnation from Palestinian officials.

It also puts the prime minister, Ariel Sharon, in an embarrassing predicament, with the Israeli military pushing for its immediate implementation before political approval is assured.

Israeli officials say the cordon sanitaire is intended to further seal off the Jewish state from Palestinian suicide bombers who have evaded army checkpoints and the mounds of rubble that now block many access roads, to strike at Israeli cities.

It is unclear whether Israel plans to impose no-go areas along the entire length of the green line, which runs for about 180 miles demarcating the lands that were once under Jordanian control but were occupied by Israel after the 1967 war.

The buffer zone plans are also intended to satisfy a psychological need of many Israelis who have lost all faith in coexistence, and want to cut their last ties to the Palestinians, bringing about "unilateral separation", as it is called here.

The Gaza Strip has been sealed off from Israel by a high-voltage fence for years. Since April, the Israeli army has widened that division by bulldozing Palestinian homes and fruit orchards close to the border fence.

However, the West Bank is traversed by hills and canyons which rule out installing a fence along the entire length of the green line.

Instead, the military has proposed carving out no-go areas within the occupied territories - ranging from several hundred yards to more than a mile in depth - especially around Jerusalem and the northern reaches of the West Bank, close to Israel's coastal cities.

The latest military plan comes in tandem with a process that has been pursued quietly for months. Several Israeli towns along the green line have installed razor wire, electric fences, and 10ft barricades. Jeeps also patrol their perimeters.

Now the Israeli army wants to act on the Palestinian side of the green line.

"These areas will be closed military zones. Those who would like to work in their fields will have to get a licence," said the Israeli army spokesman, Brigadier-General Ron Kitrey.

"At night especially, anybody there will be regarded as breaking the law. We will have to regard him as a suspect or a potential terrorist, and we have procedures for that."

However, there was confusion in the Israeli establishment over how the declaration of closed military zones would affect Palestinians living in cities such as Qalqiliya and Tulkaram, which are hard up against the green line. Brig Kitrey said that the exclusion orders would apply only in rural areas, but a spokesman for Ariel Sharon said that they would also apply to urban areas.

"The whole programme is designed for areas where there can be an influx of large numbers of people - the troublesome areas, those that kiss the areas that are close to the green line," said Raanan Gissin, a spokesman for Mr Sharon.

The proposals became a subject of some embarrassment on Wednesday when the army was forced to call off an announcement, and wait for Mr Sharon to get cabinet approval.

Despite immediate condemnation from Palestinian officials, and the prospect of an international backlash, Mr Sharon remains committed to the plan. "It is a process that is meant to happen in the future," he told reporters.

Israeli helicopter gunships fired missiles at Palestinian activists driving in the West Bank city of Tulkaram yesterday, killing two but failing to assassinate the main target. Raed al-Karmi, a commander in Yasser Arafat's Fatah militia, escaped from the vehicle. Five people were injured.

It was to be expected. Looks like the Saudi Royals have recovered from their "crusade" induced political/historical heart attacks along with a somewhat repentant President Bush. They are caving in, as they always do when Washington really comes calling, aware that in the end the legitimacy of their rule of "the kingdom" is no more (and never really was) and that only the direct protection of the Americans can keep the despicably profligate Royals on their petro-thrones.

There is a strange and growing tension coming from the Middle East this weekend; and we don't mean from Afghanistan and Pakistan this time, rather we mean from America's closest allies, Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. We're in no position to know for sure just what is happening. But in each of these countries very unusual and potentially historic developments are unfolding.

BIN LADEN LOCATED!?
(September 22, 2001)
It's impossible to know what to believe at the moment. It's possible the U.S. and Britain have no real idea where bin Laden is but are leaking reports of this kind in papers tomorrow in Britain hoping to "smoke him out" from what could be a secretly secure location. It's also possible that someone somewhere is trying to collect a reward of $25 million, the highest in history.

IS THE US WALKING RIGHT INTO BIN LADEN'S TRAP?

The UNITED NATIONS has shamefully bowed out, right when it is needed more than ever.

(September 21, 2001)
Especially under current circumstances, whether the excuse be that it is being talked about for "deterrence" against further terrorist attack, or God forbid whether it be the actual recommendation and desire of the American military, the advocacy of nuclear weapons at this time shows how dangerous the American militarists who have control of the United States really are.

PRESIDENT RUNS TO MOSQUE TO OVERWRITE "CRUSADE" COMMENTS
(September 19, 2001)
Though the naive American public didn't get it, Europeans, Middle East experts, and especially American allies in the Middle East did! Warning calls came quickly over the weekend after President George Bush used the word "crusade" a number of times; apparently knowing so little about the Arab and Muslim history that he wasn't aware of the origins and associations of that single word; apparently so badly served by his advisers that he hadn't been warned never ever to use it.

PAKISTAN COULD SPLIT IN REVOLT, images of 'crusader' america
(September 19, 2001)
General Pervez Musharaff has now spoken to his own country, invoking stories of Mohamed and the Koran. Clearly he is shaken...and shaking. All former bets about the "new world order" now need to recalculated and recast. A multitude of historic forces have now been set in motion. Not only did the world of the United States change because of what happened on 11 September 2001. A political, even an existential earthquake is potentially underway now in various locations on the globe with events threatening to spiral possibly out of control.

US DEMANDS OF ARAFAT, WORKS EVER MORE CLOSELY AND COVERTLY WITH ISREAL
(September 19, 2001)
The Americans are making "demands" on everyone right now. "You're either with us or against us" is the constant refrain. Risking revolution in nuclear Pakistan, bio terrorism at home, and even a real world war, what is going on in Palestine is not at the top of Washington's concerns for now -- but even so it must be all be manipulated, coordinated, and presented in public very carefully in view of the larger worldwide goals.

CHOMSKY ON 11 SEPT 2001
(September 18, 2001)
Asked "Do you expect U.S. to profoundly change their policy to the rest of the world?" Professor Noam Chomsky replied today: "The initial response was to call for intensifying the policies that led to the fury and resentment that provides the background of support for the terrorist attack, and to pursue more intensively the agenda of the most hard line elements of the leadership: increased militarization, domestic regimentation, attack on social programs... Terror attacks, and the escalating cycle of violence they often engender, tend to reinforce the authority and prestige of the most harsh and repressive elements of a society."

FROM ISLAMAMBAD
(September 18, 2001)
"If the campaign against terrorism is to be successful, there has to be an introspective American review and reappraisal of its policy in the Middle East. For the last one year, the only image that is etched in the popular Muslim mind is that of innocent and unarmed children, women and men being attacked by armed Israeli soldiers backed by tanks, missiles and planes.

IF AMERICA ATTACKS....
(September 16, 2001)
Like the term "Star Wars" before it "New World Order" had too many negative associations, too much imperial baggage. George W. has however evoked the refrain "This will not stand", just as his father did before him a decade ago. What is in essence a continuation of the building of the "New World Order" designed by the Americans to replace the "Cold War" paradigm is now being heavily masked under tons of rhetoric about "the war against international terrorism".

CHOMSKY- THE BOMBINGS, THE WAR, THE PALESTINIANS
(September 15, 2001)
The terrorist attacks were major atrocities. In scale they may not reach the level of many others, for example, Clinton's bombing of the Sudan with no credible pretext, destroying half its pharmaceutical supplies and killing unknown numbers of people (no one knows, because the US blocked an inquiry at the UN and no one cares to pursue it). Not to speak of much worse cases, which easily come to mind. But that this was a horrendous crime is not in doubt.

The worst massacres in the recent history of the Middle East have not been perpetrated by Arabs, but rather by Israelis. This simple fact is often overlooked in the Western media.

Even as the Americans and Israelis continue desperate moves to try to prevent the Final Conference Statement at Durban from being as harsh as it could and should be, the Israelis are working furiously to begin to unilaterally implement their post-Oslo, post-Camp David "separation" program -- which in its actual implications on the ground is in fact the neo-apartheid approach everyone is screaming about in Durban.
