Re "Last-Minute Effort to Salvage Jenin Inquiry Fails," May 2: Why did U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan advocate dropping the investigation into the Jenin refugee camp? The power to perform such inspections will be seriously compromised by doing so. The U.N. must be free to question actions taken by all sides in a conflict--not just those of so-called rogue states. How can the U.N. hope to enforce any future inspections when it willingly backs down on this one? The U.N.-member nations need to remain united for peace with an authority that's globally respected, or we could all just go home and suspiciously eye the rest of the world from behind our fortresses.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Israeli troops shot and killed at least three Palestinians and injured a dozen others in a raid early Saturday on the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, Israeli army and Palestinian medics said. A large army force surrounded a house in the camp to arrest Hamas militant Hamza Abu Haija, 22, who has been wanted by the army for several years for his alleged involvement in the Hamas military wing, Izzeddin Qassam Brigades. In an exchange of gunfire after Abu Haija refused to surrender, he was shot and killed, an Israel Defense Forces spokesman said.

The ill-fated U.N. investigative mission to the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank will be officially called off today, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said, citing what he called fundamental and apparently nonnegotiable Israeli objections to the inquiry. Though Arab nations proposed a draft resolution to the Security Council late Wednesday that would countermand Annan's move and demand Israeli cooperation with an investigation, the United States appeared poised to veto any such initiative, and other council members voiced support for Annan's decision.

JERUSALEM -- A Palestinian was killed during an Israeli military raid early Tuesday in the West Bank city of Jenin, Israeli and Palestinian sources reported. In a statement , the Israeli Defense Forces said soldiers entered Jenin overnight to make an arrest of "a wanted terrorist" when a riot erupted. Israeli soldiers came under attack from Molotov cocktails, improvised grenades and live fire and responded in self-defense, the IDF said. Several Palestinians were reported injured in the clashes, including one who died of his wounds in an Israeli hospital.

Poor, helpless U.S. Poor, helpless Colin Powell. Poor, helpless George W. Bush. More than a week ago, Bush tells Ariel Sharon to stop the invasion (but doesn't spell out why, at least to the public--about the mass suffering of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians). Now, more than a week later, Sharon says he'll get out of Nablus and Jenin in about a week (but forget Bethlehem and Ramallah). I've been around and informed for the last 30 years that we've been financing Israel's tanks, F-16s, helicopter gunships, etc., with $3 billion a year and, frankly, I'm sick of hearing my "leaders" claim that we have no power to stop this human catastrophe.

The mutilated bodies of two missing teachers were found in a cave in central Israel today, and residents of the victims' hometown went on an anti-Arab rampage. Yosef Eliahu, 35, and Lea Almakais, 19, missing since last Sunday when they left their school in Afula, central Israel, had been dead several days, police said. They said they believed that the two had been killed by Palestinian guerrillas. In Afula, hundreds of people rioted opposite the local police station.

April 28, 2002 | YOSSI KLEIN HALEVI, Yossi Klein Halevi is the Israel correspondent for the New Republic and a senior writer for the Jerusalem Report.
The United Nations commission formed to investigate the nonexistent Israeli "massacre" in the West Bank town of Jenin could have been a means for some desperately needed truth-telling about the Middle East conflict. Instead, given its mandate to focus on Israel's self-defense rather than on the Palestinian terrorism that provoked it, the commission will only confirm that there is no justice to be had in the U.N. for the Jewish state.

Palestinians rioted in the occupied lands today to protest the slayings of the PLO's deputy leader and two other officials in Tunisia. Arab reports said army gunfire killed two demonstrators and wounded at least 60. The army confirmed 13 people were wounded and said it was checking other reports. The worst clashes occurred in the Gaza Strip, once home to Salah Khalaf, the most prominent of the three PLO officials slain Monday night in a Tunis suburb.

JERUSALEM -- In one of the most violent clashes in years between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, Israeli security forces killed three Palestinians early Monday during a raid at the Qalandia refugee camp near Jerusalem. Palestinian medical officials said two others were in critical condition and 19 were wounded. All were shot in the chest and upper body, according to doctors at Ramallah Hospital. Israeli border police and soldiers entered the camp before dawn to make an arrest, prompting hundreds of Palestinians to riot against the operation by throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

When Jenine Shereos was hiking in California a few years ago, the Boston-based artist noticed something that stopped her in her tracks: a decomposing maple leaf with only its lace-like veins remaining. She immediately started collecting these “skeleton leaves.” Around the same time, Shereos was experimenting with human hair as an artistic medium. She already had embroidered long strands from her brunette locks in a root-like pattern for a pillow and stitched them into books, like lines of text.

Three Israelis were killed and three others wounded Sunday in a drive-by shooting by Palestinian militants in the West Bank, the Israeli military said. The attack, near a block of Jewish settlements south of Jerusalem, was the deadliest strike against Israelis since their nation's military completed its withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and a portion of the West Bank last month. It was followed by a similar shooting Sunday north of Jerusalem.

Israel's Supreme Court reinstated its ruling that "Jenin, Jenin," a film Israeli censors banned over its depiction of a 2002 army assault in a West Bank refugee camp, could be screened in the Jewish state. But the court described the documentary as a "propagandistic lie" that falsely accused Israeli soldiers of intentionally killing children, women, the disabled and the mentally ill. The offensive began after Palestinian suicide bombings.

An Israeli Arab whose film on Israel's assault on the Jenin refugee camp is banned in the Jewish state said Tuesday he had rejected an offer to allow the documentary to air if some sensitive scenes were removed. Mohammad Bakri said he preferred viewers see his "Jenin, Jenin" in its entirety or not at all. The film is temporarily banned pending a ruling on an appeal to Israel's Supreme Court. "They gave me a compromise ... to cut some scenes from the film, and then they will allow the film.
