No further comments are necessary here. Henry's suffice. If you haven't read the Intro to the Israeli section, please do so. You'll understand that the territory being claimed by the Turko-Mongolian Talmudist 'Jews', do NOT stop with the 'Greater Israel'. The WORLD is their doll house, and they mean it!

The reporter is apparently unaware that he's documenting the ultimate humiliation of a superpower -- to be ordered around like a cheap lackey.
Think about it. The Arab world offered Israel a full peace treaty and normal relations (Prince Abdullah's initiative) over one year ago -- all Israel had to do was comply with UN Sec. Council Resolution 242 -- and not even that as the Palestinians would have allowed several large settlements on the West Bank to stay.
Israel could have lived in peace on the 78% of Palestine that it stole and the US could have been hailed as a peacemaker by the entire Arab world. But Israel and US Jews and Christians wanted more -- so the idiot Bush was called on to invade and bully Israel's neighbors to force them to make a "peace" suitable to Israel.
In fact, all the fighting, all the bloodshed in the Middle East since 1967, occurred because US/Israel has refused to leave just 22 percent of Palestine to its original inhabitants. They want it all.
This Israeli government, and the American Jewish and Christian nutcakes who created it and support it, don't give a damn about peace or about Jews. Does anyone actually believe that peace will come about by attacking every Arab country and installing puppet governments -- turning the entire Arab world into one big West Bank? Will this make Israel, the US or any Jew on Earth more secure?
This has got to be the lowest point in the history of the United States. The USA has been trashed.
Israel Wants U.S. to Pressure Syria
Mon, April 14, 2003
By DAN PERRY, Associated Press Writer
JERUSALEM - Seeking broader benefits from the fall of Saddam Hussein, Israel hopes the United States will force Syria to oust Hezbollah guerrillas armed with thousands of rockets from southern Lebanon and boot Palestinian militant groups from Damascus.
In remarks published Monday, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said Israel has "a long list of issues we are thinking of demanding of the Syrians, and it would be best done through the Americans."
The comments come as the Bush administration is toughening its position on Syria. President Bush has warned Damascus not to give refuge to members of the fallen Iraqi regime a charge Syria has denied and said he believes Syria has chemical weapons.
Syrian officials have accused Israel of instigating the U.S. pressure, and Foreign Minister Farouk al-Sharaa warned at a news conference Saturday in Damascus that Israel would "pay a price" if Syria were harmed.
The sharp exchanges raised concerns about a possible new front in a region reeling from the Iraq war and looking to end 30 months of Israeli-Palestinian fighting, which has killed thousands and fomented anti-Western sentiment among Arabs.
Although the Syrian-Israeli border has been quiet for 30 years, it is a brittle calm. Their air forces clashed over Lebanon in 1982, and Syria has long used Hezbollah as a proxy. During Israel's 18-year occupation of southern Lebanon, Syria allowed weapons from Iran to reach guerrillas fighting Israel.
The two countries have myriad claims against each other. Syria wants Israel to return the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau Israel captured in the 1967 war and has annexed. Israel says Syria, which never recognized its right to exist, poses a significant missile threat and abets terrorism by harboring leaders of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian militant groups in Damascus.
Israeli-Syrian peace talks collapsed in 2000 when Israel offered to return virtually all the land, but Syria insisted on a complete pullout.
Although the Israeli-Lebanese border has been relatively quiet since Israel's unilateral withdrawal from Lebanon in May 2000, Mofaz said Hezbollah still poses a threat. Israeli officials have said the group has 10,000 Katyusha rockets and dozens of longer-range missiles that could reach central Israeli towns and cities.
Faced with a new Middle East after the Iraq war, Israel sees an opportunity to remove the potential Syrian threat from its borders, Mofaz said in an interview, excerpts of which were published in the Israeli newspaper Maariv.
Mofaz said Israel wants Hezbollah dismantled and the rockets removed from southern Lebanon, as well as an end to the Iranian aid that reaches Hezbollah through Syria. Israel will also demand that Syria stop harboring Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which Mofaz said have "command centers" in Damascus from which they send orders and money to activists in the Palestinian territories.
A senior Israeli government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the demands had come up in the past and confirmed they were being raised with redoubled vigor in light of Saddam's fall.
However, the official said, there was concern in Jerusalem that a cornered Syria might lash out and give Hezbollah the green light to fire rockets into Israel. If thus provoked, the official said, Israel would reserve the right to react against Syria.
Israel's media brimmed Monday with assessments of the Syrian situation and unflattering analyses of its youthful president, Bashar Assad, who succeeded his father, the late Hafez Assad, three years ago.
Under the headline "Rockets that cover all of Israel," the Yediot Ahronot newspaper said Syria has Scud missiles it could arm with chemical weapons and fire at any of Israel's cities.
Israeli analyst Eytan Gilboa said Assad has not lived up to U.S. expectations to stop supporting terror groups in exchange for being kept off Bush's "axis of evil" and for help in winning a seat on the U.N. Security Council. Gilboa said Washington might now force Syria to expel the Palestinian militants from Damascus.
Nafez Azzam, the Islamic Jihad leader in the Gaza Strip, said his group maintains only a symbolic presence in Syria. The American campaign against Syria is a continuation of its war on Iraq, he said, warning Arabs "will not surrender."
"Syria has a clear position in support of the Palestinian people," Azzam said. "And everyone will stand behind Syria in the face of this campaign." [end of article]
