While the world looked elsewhere, another week of death and misery

US vetoes 'biased' UN resolution attacking Israel's Gaza bloodbath - 12 November 2006 - Britain abstained, France and Russia voted in favour, but America refused to allow the United Nations to condemn the Israelis after Wednesday's mistaken rocket strike on Beit Hanoun, which killed 19 civilians

Arabs vow to break aid blockade on Palestinians - 13 November 2006 - Arab foreign ministers gathered in Cairo vowed Sunday to ignore the aid freeze imposed on the Palestinian Authority and start stepping up payments. "We are determined to find means of getting aid directly to the Palestinian people," Qatari Foreign Minister Hamad Ben Jassem Ben Jabr Al Thani told reporters.

EU foreign ministers seen backing Abbas efforts to form Palestinian unity government - 13 November 2006 - European Union foreign ministers were expected Monday to reiterate their support for the efforts of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to form a unity government with the militant Hamas group.

Olmert hints at possible military action against Iran - 13 November 2006 - Prime Minister Ehud Olmert hinted Sunday for the first time at the possibility of Israeli military action against Iran to thwart its nuclear efforts. In a conversation with press aboard his plane to the United States on Sunday, Olmert said that "Iran will only agree to a compromise on the issue of its nuclear program if it has a reason to be afraid."

Anatomy of an Alliance; In New Middle East, Tests for an Old Friendship - 13 November 2006 - Even before the American elections, a certain wariness had crept into the intimate friendship between Israel and the United States. The summer war in Lebanon produced questions in Washington about the competence of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. In Jerusalem, there were worries about the American approach to Iran and the Palestinians.

Israeli 'Massacre' Overshadowed by U.S. Elections - 11.13.2006 - Israel's massacre of innocent Palestinian families on Election Day was no simple "accident," "tragedy" or "incident."

"Thank God for the American elections," our ministers and generals sighed with relief. They were not rejoicing at the kick that the American people delivered to George W. Bush's ass this week. They love Bush, after all. But more important than the humbling of Bush is the fact that the news from America pushed aside the terrible reports from Beit Hanoun. Instead of making the headlines, they were relegated to the bottom of the page.

The Arab leaders have been only giving lip service to the Palestenian cause for over 50 years, why do you think they are now able to see and do, it is impossible to escape the "American Web", they will always obey thier master, that's the sad reality.

If you think that there is any thing, will ever be allowed to shadow the  US elections, even human lives, think again, they are talking about Salvery in the Gulf, yet they ignore the worst type of Salvery, which is being nurtured every moment of the day in the USA, let's not ignore FINANCIAL SLAVERY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
