Israel Pushing Back
The Israelis and an international peace keeping force arrested thirty-three (33) Palestinian officials and high profile types.
This article gives you the scoop.
In a statement, the army described those arrested as "senior members of the
Hamas terror organization," which it said "exploits governmental institutions to
encourage and support terrorist activity." Miri Eisin, a spokeswoman for Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert of Israel, said, "We have information that connects all
those arrested to terrorist activity." Another senior Israeli government
official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the arrests came "on the
heels of concrete and genuine indications that these individuals - all of them -
pose a clear and present danger to the lives of Israelis."
Ol' BC just has one question. Is Olmert about to get a talking to from the U.S.? Let's hope not. I've always said that Israel could almost insure peace in the region by itself if the U.S. would quit tying her hands.
Just a thought.
