Uh oh. This does not bode well for the situation in the middle east...
2001-10-17 09:11:06 PM  
This is hardly a news flash. It happened 20 hours ago.
2001-10-17 09:12:14 PM  
exactly StrongBad.
2001-10-17 09:13:47 PM  
This just in...
Luxury liner hits iceberg in North Atlantic.
Initial reports indicate all passengers safe.
2001-10-17 09:14:43 PM  
Yeah, like 48 hours ago. Newsflash my ass.
2001-10-17 09:15:14 PM  
Well, it looks like the hawks are getting exactly what they want, a whole world going kill crazy and falling apart and going to war.

2001-10-17 09:15:47 PM

2001-10-17 09:19:05 PM  
..... i didn't really wanna see israel anyways. but this can't be good. the mossad're gonna be cleaning house somewhere.

*the ill*
2001-10-17 09:19:05 PM  
If you want a further update, Israeli Prime Minister Sharon sad, 'war until the last breath. There will never be peace.'

Israel has also begun retaliation
2001-10-17 09:19:21 PM  
Actually, this is new, he was injured with a bullet wound a while ago, he died only recently
2001-10-17 09:23:45 PM  
I think it's funny that Isreal can assassinate hella heads within a couple of days, and then when one of their own is capped, they go all bugfark. Haha. Reap what you sow.

Mind you I really dislike the palestinians and am generally on the side of Isreal, but jeeeesus they need to stop assassinating people, and try arresting them, imprisoning them, and killing them when they try and break out. Isreal would have a LOT more ground to stand on internationally, if they weren't in tit-for-tat assassinations.

Bollocks to the lot of them.
2001-10-17 09:24:31 PM  
Perrin Will that make you happier? Will more death and destruction make you happier? How many must die before your bloodlust is sated?
2001-10-17 09:24:38 PM  
I fail to understand how it takes 3 hours to pronounce somebody dead. He was shot 3 times in the head and neck with an assault rifle.
2001-10-17 09:26:04 PM  
Yeah, that is nuts. Israel is sniping everybody palestinian political figure and his brother over the last few days, and one Jew gets killed and they go bezerk.
2001-10-17 09:27:21 PM  
Here Here Minos. I say 40 years of RU486 in their water supply resolves the problem.
2001-10-17 09:28:06 PM  
no s_h_i_t !
2001-10-17 09:30:08 PM  
Well this can't be very good for tourism.
2001-10-17 09:30:37 PM  
Actually, that wasn't the tourist minister, that was someone who was mistaken for him.
2001-10-17 09:31:04 PM  
Well, it looks like the hawks are getting exactly what they want, a whole world going kill crazy and falling apart and going to war.


Yes very happy. Arafat and the other terrorists next or better yet keep him as a puppet. Whoo hoo blood lust revenge!
2001-10-17 09:33:24 PM  
Mayoboy, you just made me laugh.
2001-10-17 09:35:58 PM  
This is bad.

OK, on to more pressing matters (in my life anyway).

Fark Gods: I beseech you, implore you, supplicate your very greatness. Please grant me this one request. MAY WE PLEASE HAVE OUR PHOTOSHOP THIS SIDE OF MIDNIGHT??? PLEASE!!!

2001-10-17 09:39:04 PM  
Wow, assasinated twice in one day....if it weren't for these "news flashes", I'd be out of the loop!
2001-10-17 09:41:16 PM  
My point is that this is exactly the sort of thing that could spiral into WWIII. I wouldn't be surprized if it did.

Does this make me a terrorist loving tree hugging commie pinko birkenstock wearing lefty? No. I'm worried. Very worried. This is very, very bad. And I think it's going to get a hell of a lot worse before it gets better.

Hope I'm wrong.
2001-10-17 09:41:51 PM  
I hope the Minister of Beer and Boobies has been taken to a secure location.
Are all Farkistani officials safe and accounted for?

FB- Israel isn't killing palestinian political figures because they are palestinian political figures (heck, if that wee the case Arafat would have been the first to go). They are killing people who masterminded suicide bombings, who also happen to be in political power of one form or another (i.e. head of terrorist groups). Sorta, like the way Bush is trying to kill Osama Bin Laden (the ethics of which, I notice you have no trouble with).

By the way, this attack was meaningless anyways, as this man had resigned today.
2001-10-17 10:03:21 PM  
Every time that Arafat starts real negociation with Israel or USA(UK this time), the farking radicals kill something to boyccot it. Also Israel keeps killing ppl with hellicopter rockets and stuff. I say SHIAT.
2001-10-17 10:08:55 PM  
Uh, yeah. This is the first story I read this morning, obviously on a different website. Hardly a new flash.

Bad FARK no boobies.
2001-10-17 10:19:31 PM  
I can't help but notice a problem with Israel's plan of attack. You see, Israel is much stronger than the Palestinians. For the most part, during the skirmishes and melees, the Palestinians are throwing rocks while the Israel's army is using grenades and rockets.

follow me here:

A Palestinian throws a rock.
Israeli army fires a rocket.
Rocket hits something, making more rocks...

2001-10-17 10:28:22 PM  
This guy was a real prick.
He often referred to palestinians as "cancer and lice" and that they should all fark off and go to Mecca.
2001-10-17 10:39:57 PM  
Nice job Palestine. Way to help the world situation *bonk*
2001-10-17 10:55:06 PM  
Isreal is systematically destroying the Pelestinians. I think they realize that there one day will be a Palestinian state, but they are going to go as far as they can until then. They are killing the peoples leaders and destroying their economy and infrastrcture systematically. They want to the leave the people as weakened as possible, since they will be in their backyard. Make the palestinians dependant upon isreal. This is just one side of the argument I realize.

Just my two centavos.

In other news, the world is stepping ever closer to war. Real war, not what we have grown to call it in the last two decades.
2001-10-17 10:58:05 PM  
In the other news today:

Death, War, Pestilence, and Famine ended their card game early and are getting the horses ready.
2001-10-17 11:02:09 PM  
no offense but... who the hell are the Pelestinians? Are they some kind of Hawiian volcano worshipping anti-semite group or something?
2001-10-17 11:02:11 PM  
Minister of Tourism? Tourism...? Israel? anyone? anyone? bueller?
2001-10-17 11:07:24 PM  
Jewish math: 1 Jewish life = 1000 black S. African lives = 10,000 Arab lives

& they got upset when somebody (100+ nations except USA & Canada) accused them of racism!
2001-10-17 11:10:43 PM  
The Palestinians are the people who have lived in the area that is now Israel, for the several thousand years. They have squabbled over the land with the Jewish people for a long time as well. About a century ago a movement began to create a home for the Jewish people in Palestine. After World War II it happened. Several wars ensued.
The most recent of which set the borders prior to Israel giving the Golan Heights (sp) back to Syria?

Anyway, the Palestinians have a valid argument that their home was taken by Israelis.
Sorry, bored tonight. Just feel likes posting.
2001-10-17 11:51:30 PM  
Actually Jiggs if you want to go back even farther in history the land belonged to the Jews long before there was a such thing as Palestinians.......I'm not arguing that this means they should have sole ownership....just stating a point.......also the people Israel has been assassinating have not been the leaders of the palestinian community as you refered to them.....they are heads of terrorist organizations, dangerous people, people that have planned and orchastrated bombings. Israel assassinating them is no different than what we are attempting to do to Bin Laden, except instead of bombing their own country to shiat they handle it cleaner and with less civilian casualties by just a bullet to the head instead of demolishing an entire city block in the attempt to eliminate one person.
2001-10-17 11:52:44 PM  
Anyone remember the dance hall floor collapsing?

That's all.
2001-10-17 11:55:34 PM  
<B>IHateWicker:</B> If I remember correctly Isreal actually belonged to the Caananites and the Hitites before the Jews came with a mandate from God to slaughter all of them. Who is standing up for the rights of the Caananites and the Hitites? Who will make sure that they get their fair shake in this whole fiasco? Oh yeah I forgot... they are all long dead.
2001-10-17 11:56:52 PM  
doh... I guess that would have worked better if I had NOT unchecked HTML enabled box
2001-10-18 12:32:38 AM  
You are right about the terrorist leaders, but Isreal is not afrain of having a little calteral damage. They have been know to use helicopter gunships to assiasinate people and have destroyed entire buildings to get one person.

The history of the region is obscured in politics, the Jewish and Arab histories of the region differ greatly.
2001-10-18 01:48:31 AM  
poor guy. at least he probably had a good, fulfilling life.
2001-10-18 01:49:46 AM  
Slaughtering millions of Arabs over 50 years, and now they start whining over a Racist minister?
2001-10-18 02:05:35 AM  
I say the middle east is to farked up, to ever establish a lasting, stable peace. I saw let them all kill eachother until there is no one left to make war with.
