Sharon tells A-G to weigh proceedings against Gush Shalom

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Sunday ordered Attorney-General Elyakim Rubinstein to look into reports that activists from the Gush Shalom peace organization are monitoring Israel Defense Forces officers in order to report them to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

At Sunday's cabinet meeting, Sharon said it was "inconceivable" that a political organization could try to deter reservists from carrying out their orders in the territories by threatening them with legal action in an international court. [read more]

Sharon's Bloody Hands
Shehadeh Death Count

Like the "Energizer Bunny from Hell", Ariel Sharon just keeps killing and killing and killing.

On July 23, 2002, as everyone knows by now, Ariel Sharon ordered the assassination of Sheikh Salah Shehadeh, while he slept, with his wife and children. The assassination was completed using a 1-ton bomb dropped from an American-made F-16 fighter plane. The ensuing explosion destroyed not only Shehadeh's apartment building but several other apartment buildings directly adjacent.

14 civilians including 9 children were killed along with Shehadeh and his bodyguard.

European negotiators have said that a cease-fire agreement was 95% complete and probably would have been announced the same day as the assassination.

This would have been a milestone in the peace negotiations as it would have been the first time in history that all of the major Palestinian militant groups would have agreed to cease their attacks on Israelis - both civilians and soldiers. It is said that the agreement would have stopped attacks both in Israel and in the occupied territories.

This page will keep track of all the deaths and injuries attributed to the assassination of Sheikh Salah Shehadeh, both from the initial bombing and from retaliation attacks.[read more]

Defined by terrorism

The chief of the Shin Bet security service, Avi Dichter, told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee this week that, "The damage that Salah Shehadeh caused the State of Israel is no less than that caused by bin Laden to the Americans." However, he did not bother to note whether the damage was caused before or after the "targeted interdiction" of Shehadeh, whose Hamas organization is now promising to liquidate 100 Israelis in retaliation for the Gaza bombing.
