This time it wasn't Joshua, but the Israeli Defense Force troopers that knocked down the walls of a Palestinian Authority prison in Jericho and pulled out some terrs that were 'on their list'. Jerusalem Post reports the operation was a big success. Israel is anticipating more troubles when Hamas gets a government together next week, and wanted to be sure these murderers don't walk.
Speaking of walking, some British and American observers who were trying to monitor the security of the Jericho slammer conveniently cut out just before the Israeli troops went in with the heavy equipment. The Palestinians and their pals are tossing blame every which way:
"Clearly, there is some sort of coordination," Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa told the Doha-based Al-Jazeera news television by phone.The old feeder is hopeful that the Israelis will help us out again, and take out the Iranian nuke factories. At least the Israelis have got the Arab world nervous, according to the UAE's Khaleej Times. Israel kicking butt; reminds me of the old days.
"This (withdrawal of US and British monitors) raises obvious question marks." The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) also heaped blame on the US and Britain, warning this would escalate "violence and extremism" throughout the world.
"The governments of Britain and the United States bear direct and serious responsibility for what happened in the prison and escalating what took place later," the OIC said in a statement cited by Reuters.
