How the occupation really works -- just watch this story

quote:
RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday he would free from prison the mastermind of an Israeli Cabinet minister's assassination, but he would not be responsible for any Israeli actions against him.

Israel threatens to kill prisoners

quote:
ISRAEL is prepared to assassinate four Palestinians accused in the 2001 murder of an Israeli tourism minister if they are released from jail, Israeli television reported today.

Security forces and the army are prepared to take immediate action to either "eliminate or arrest" the militants if Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas organises their release from the West Bank's Jericho prison, Israel's second television channel said.

Avneri likens Ze'evi death to IDF killings;'Yassin outranked Ze'evi'

quote:
Attacking the IDF siege of the Jericho prison as a campaign ploy by Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, leftist activist and ex-MK Uri Avneri Tuesday termed the 2001 assassination of cabinet minister Rehavam Ze'evi a targeted killing, and said that slain Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin "was certainly of a higher rank" than Ze'evi.
"This was an almost-uncamouflaged campaign ploy by Olmert, prepared in a cabal with the British and the Americans," Avneri said of the IDF operation, in which a nine-hour siege ended with the surrender of Ze'evi's killers.

Israeli minister assassinated

quote:

Mr Ze'evi was shot three times in the head and neck at close range in the Hyatt Hotel, which is close to Palestinian areas in east Jerusalem, police said.

He arrived at Hadassa hospital without a heartbeat and doctors attempted to revive him, hospital spokeswoman Yael Bossem-Levy said.

In statements to Arab television stations, the group said the shooting was in retaliation for the death of the PFLP leader, Mustafa Zibri, who died in an Israeli rocket attack on August 27.

Despite his job title, Mr Ze'evi rarely commented on tourism and was known for his hardline positions against the Palestinians. He had called for the "transfer" of all Arabs and Palestinians from Israel and had sparked controversy in July for referring to Palestinians working and living illegally in Israel as "lice" and a "cancer".

Palestinians release Canadian, last of 11 hostages seized after Israeli raid

quote:
Adam Budzanowski of Toronto spent a day in captivity and was the last of 11 foreigners seized by Palestinians protesting an Israeli military raid on a West Bank prison.

The 57-year-old said it took him a while to convince his captors that he was Canadian, not American, but that once they believed him they started treating him nicely.

Since ME threads have a short life expectancy anyway...

“I killed many Arabs, probably more than Hamas fighters killed Jews, and more than anybody else, but all in order to secure Israeli lives,” said Admiral Ami Ayalon, the Labour party’s candidate for the most difficult portfolio in Israeli politics...

quote:
Ayalon is considered a dove despite his 32 years of military service and his near five-year stint at the helm of the intelligence agency.

A dove...and a leftist! He's just like us!

To be fair, the rest of the Ayalon quotes in that Times article are about his willingness to negotiate with Hamas, a shared Jerusalem, and giving hope to the Palestinians.

But please don't ask me if I think those will be delivered on..

Note that Mr Budzanowski has opted to stay in Gaza and continue his work with JumpStart, helping to rebuild. Well done.
