Kerry's Arafat Yes-Man

David Bedein has a sobering piece for those who want to believe, in
spite of all evidence, that John F. Kerry is pro-Israel. Bedein
describes Kerry's newly appointed Middle East advisor, Martin Indyk, as
Kerry's Arafat Yes-Man
<http://frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp'ID=14474>'and backs it
up with numerous disturbing examples.

     In early November 2000, Arafat's Second Intifada terror campaign was
     getting underway, and Indyk was strongly condemning Israel's
     military actions against Arafat's forces. Indyk remarked that what
     the Israelis had to do was to get Arafat to act against the
     perpetrators of the violence, such as Hamas, Tanzim gangs and the
     Islamic Jihad /diplomatically/. He did not mention that Arafat's own
     Force 17 bodyguard, Preventive Security and other Palestinian
     Authority forces were also responsible for a considerable portion of
     the violence. Indyk never wants to hold Arafat responsible when
     Arafat's personal forces carry out terrorist activities and kill
     people.

     And in late November 2000, when Israel issued a 'white paper' on
     intercepted intelligence from Arafat's headquarters that showed
     documentary evidence that Arafat and his mainstream PLO gangs were
     indeed facilitating the campaign of terror, Indyk made a special
     trip to Jerusalem to /demand/ that the Israeli government withdraw
     its report. Indyk had just reported to the U.S. Congress that the
     Palestinian groups organizing the terror campaign were NOT under
     Arafat's control.

     Eight months later, on May 21, 2001, in an address to Ben Gurion
     University, Indyk stuck to his guns and continued to position Arafat

[Fwd: Movie tonight]

Hey, since Mike Levine can't post on the ICAP list, I'm forwarding this 
e-mail for him (for those that didn't already get it through the GAPP list).

Hi everybody,
 
just wondering if there's anybody in watching a movie "Before Sunset" with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy at the Lafayette 7 tonight at 7.30pm. It seems to be a very nice, above- the average- Hollywood-type movie. Check the information at

for what it's worth...

Two columns on the opinion page in today's Miami Herald (yes, I'm down in FL 
right now) argue for and against Israel's security fence.  The first one is pro-
Israel and fence, and the second is against.  What caught my eye was that the 
second art. opened w/the author attacking a resolution intro'd to the US House 
of Rep by an IN rep - Mike Pence.  Pence has an Israel page as part of his 
website:
http://mikepence.house.gov/Issues/Issue/?IssueID=987

Anyway, thought it interesting that it was a rep f/IN and not f/an area w/a 
large Jewish constituency that Quigley was arguing about.  Of course, also 
think Quigley's comment about a "belligerent occupation" is ludicrous, but 
hoping there's an Israel council at OSU to address that.

can also check out Apostolou's website:

The court claimed the barrier is illegal, that Israel should pull it down and 
that the U.N. General Assembly and Security Council should consider taking

Re: full movies online

I wouldn't expect the resolution or quality to be worth the effort.  I
wouldn't be surprised if these movies are already available to us
through the consulate.  I would definitely be interested in getting
The Road to Jenin for a public showing.  We talked about this briefly
at one of the last meetings.  Does anyone have a web page or other
resource to see what movies we can get and show (preferably for free)?

PS - As most of you know I have graduated and just got an apartment in
Lebanon (Indiana), but I will do my best to still be involved with
ICaP.

Re: full movies online

John is right, the quality of the movies would be too low for it to be 
worth while (you can't stream DVD quality, or even VHS quality, movies 
yet, the bandwidth requirements are too high).

However, we have been given movies in the past, or at least the right to 
show them. We should definitely follow that avenue.

OT: God Will Provide, but He May Not Finance

This is very off-topic, but the list has been slow, so I thought I'd share:

All he needed was a Bible and a lot of attitude.

A young man drove up in a pickup truck to a Farmington, N.M.,
Chevrolet dealership Monday, walked in and demanded that he be given a
new car, reports the Daily Times of Farmington.

When asked how he planned to pay for the vehicle, the man's answer was
simple: Jesus would finance it for him.

Then he became threatening.

"He said, 'If you don't give me the keys to the car, I'm going to
drive it [the pickup] through the showroom window,'" said Webb
Chevrolet Toyota (search) Finance Officer Bob Bish.

The man, who identified himself as Ray Montano, then walked back out
to the gray Ford Ranger (search) truck sitting in the parking lot as
employees and customers quickly backed away.

"He said he was going to do it," salesman Dwayne Carlson told the newspaper.

And do it he did. Montano gunned the engine, jumped the truck over the
parking-space block, picked up a little speed and went straight into
the front windows, shattering glass and knocking over a chair and a
plant.

Fortunately, two feet of wall at the base of the windows stopped the
truck with only its nose poking into the showroom.
