A War We Can Not Afford To Lose

I promised in my last post to give you a more detailed accounting of my recent activities which have kept me away from my blogging, for the past two months, and here it is, in part.

Let me begin by saying, we're in big trouble. When I say this, I am referring to both America and Israel. I am fully aware that this is not what people want to hear, nor is it what I would like to report, but it's the truth, and the truth is what we must face, if we are to survive.

I am, by nature, a very optimistic person, a "the glass is always half-full" type individual, so you can be sure that when I say, we're in big trouble, I believe it, passionately. I would love to tell you that the future looks bright, but I must call it like I see it, and it's not good. I believe fervently, as I stated in my earlier post, that America and Israel have both reached a fork in the road, and our destinies will be determined by the choices we make now. The good news is that there are people, intelligent, dedicated, and informed individuals, (like all of you, my faithful blogging friends), on the front lines of this battle, who are fighting the good fight, and with G-D's help, it's a war that we will win.

We must sound the alarm. We must awaken a complacent, self-serving, spoiled population, that has become fat and lazy, so-to-speak, accustomed to ease, and lulled to sleep by the false prophets of our day, namely, the leftist media, fat-cat, self-promoting politicians, liberal universities, and the corporate machinery, which fuels them all, bent on achieving their globalist agenda. This fight will be broad, much broader than the struggle between those on the right and those on the left, Republican or Democrat, religious or secular. To break it down to a least common denominator, the war we must fight is the original struggle, that of good verses evil, and it's a war that we can't afford to lose.

Over the past two months, I have been neck-deep in political muck, in preparation for next year's presidential election, here in America. I have spoken with representatives for all of the lead conservatives, in the Republican party, and with just over a year remaining before the election, I remain undecided in my choice of candidates. I have received, no less, than three, on some days, upwards of seven calls, per day, from Washington, D.C., from leading conservatives, and I have yet to receive any definitive answers to the issues of paramount concern to me. Politicians are expert at giving indirect answers to direct questions. I want direct answers, to direct questions. Is this so much to expect? I don't think so, and I'll be breaking-down the questions I asked of them, and some of the answers I received, candidate-by-candidate, but enough for now. I'll share more details from my recent discoveries as I outline them, in upcoming posts.

We have been given a great opportunity, as bloggers, to be on the front lines of this war, and hopefully to impact it's outcome. I am greatly humbled to be included in this very tight circle of brave soldiers, my fellow bloggers, my good friends, and my comrades in battle. Remember the pen (or, in this case, the blog), is mightier than the sword. All of you are my heroes. Your posts are far more eloquent and powerful than mine, and I am honored to know you all, and in my simplistic way, I will attempt to be worthy of the encouragement and support you have all given to me. Together we will fight the good fight, and we will win, with G-D's help.

Gates of Vienna: Those Ripping Sounds You Hear…

Gates of Vienna: Those Ripping Sounds You Hear…

After much investigation, and soul searching, I have arrived at a decision which has been very difficult for me.

As many of my regular readership are aware, I have openly supported Fred Thompson for a presidential bid in 2008.

I thought he was both a Conservative, and a friend and supportor of Israel, both of which are central to obtaining my support in the upcoming race for President.

It now appears, due to a recent shake-up in the Thompson camp, that my faith in him was mis-placed.

He could not, I feel, have been unaware of Spencer Abraham's Islamic connections, and therefore, is not the man I had hoped he was.

He either is unaware (which would mean politically blind), or he actually is fully aware and does not consider Abraham's affiliations to be a problem (in which case, he too would have to be a sell-out to Islamic interests, and therefore, a danger to both America, and to Israel).

In either case I have decided to withdraw my support and to remove all Thompson related blogrolls and links from my site.

Please read why I have taken these drastic steps below.

I no longer feel I can trust Fred Thompson's judgment, or where his loyalties lie. It's as simple as that, and it is very dis-heartening to me.

Please read the post from Gates of Vienna below ....

Those Ripping Sounds You Hear…

by Dymphna

Darn. He sounded so good for awhile. Then Fred Thompson made a fatal mistake for anyone concerned with the infiltration of this country by Islamists.

He hired Spencer Abraham as his campaign manager:

Although Abraham, of Lebanese descent, is a Christian, he is a career water carrier for Islamists of the most extremist stripe and made that the cornerstone of his failed, one-term Senate career and equally lousy tenure as Energy Secretary.

As a Senator, he took marching orders from James Zogby of the pan-Islamist Arab American Institute, opposing profiling of Arabs, the use of secret evidence against Muslims (at the behest of Muslim groups), attempting to repeal the Clinton counterterrorism package, refusing to fund computer tracking of student and other foreign aliens, giving millions in our tax money right to Hezbollah, and putting CAIR on the map on Capitol Hill (taking the group’s officials around to meet other Senators and Members of Congress). He took campaign contributions from the relatives of Hezbollah-backed top Lebanese officials after he got the group millions in our tax money.

It gets worse…

Spence was one of only two Senators in the entire U.S. Senate who refused to sign a letter calling on President Clinton to condemn Palestinian terrorism and Yasser Arafat. This was at the height of a series of homicide bombings in Israel in 1999 and 2000.

As Energy Secretary, he gave top secret tours of nuclear facilities, as well as detailed information on how we secure them to Muslim nations who are our enemies. And he gave out undue post-9/11 awards to Al-Qaeda money-launderers . . . at the White House. The money launderers were raided by U.S. Customs Service agents.

After he left the Bush cabinet, Spence became a lobbyist for Mid-Eastern Muslim countries that practice the Arab boycott of Israel and don’t really like us too much either. He took their money and until the Thompson race, did their bidding.

Then there’s Jamal Barzinji. Abraham enlisted him to find parties who helped and reached out to Muslims after 9/11, with Abraham hosting an awards ceremony for them. Problem is, Barzinji is an officer and/or director in SAFA Trust, Mar-Jac Poultry, and International Institute for Islamic Thought, all raided by Customs in March 2002 for laundering over $1.7 billion to Al-Quaida and Islamic Jihad (through indicted University of South Florida professor and alleged Islamic Jihad frontman Sami Al-Arian).

Read more at Right Truth on Mr. Abraham. Lots of links, none of them reassuring.How long will it be before the conservative “Blogs for Thompson” slowly melts away in the light of Fred’s decision to hire Spencer Abraham?

Those ripping sounds you hear are the “I’m with Fred” buttons being removed from the sidebars of disappointed conservatives.

And Giuliani is hunting for Fred so he can throw a rose on the “Fred Thompson for President” coffin as this nail is hammered in like a stake through the heart.

Breaking News: Knesset Moves to Ban Gay March in Jerusalem

Knesset Moves to Ban Gay March in Jerusalem

Praise HaShem !!! Has the Knesset finally done something "right" ???

Read Article below:

Original Article:

Published: 06/06/07, 4:38 PM
by Hillel Fendel

( With tensions rising again as homosexuals prepare to parade in Jerusalem, the Knesset passes a preliminary reading of an amendment that would ban future such marches. At the same time, opponents of the march have begun a series of protest actions.

The Knesset voted by a 40-23 margin on Wednesday afternoon to approve an early reading of an amendment to the current Jerusalem Bill. The amendment will be discussed in the Knesset Law Committee; if it is passed there, it will be returned to the Knesset for two additional votes and final passage.

The amendment reads as follows: "The Jerusalem City Council is authorized to ban marches and parades in the city for reasons of disturbance of the peace, offense to public sensitivities, or for religious reasons."

MK Gabbai Explains

MK Eli Gabbai (National Religious Party), who submitted the bill twice - in the previous Knesset and in the current one - offered two explanations for proposing the bill. One explanation is that "Jerusalem is a unique city in the world, holy to the three religions. The holding of a gay-pride parade specifically in Jerusalem is offensive to the believers of all the religions all over the world... This law authorizes the City Council to bar an event that is liable to offend millions of believers around the world, as well as the residents of the city itself."

In his second explanation, Gabbai adds, "...Jerusalem's special national and international status stems, inter alia, from the fact that it is holy to the three religions. This legislation comes to strengthen Jerusalem's status via its City Council representatives, enabling them to set its policies while taking into account the special sensitivities in light of the unique religious and social composition of the population."

MK Gabbai told Arutz-7 he hopes to have the bill passed completely in time for the scheduled gay march two weeks from now. Some observers in the Knesset feel this is unrealistic, but "it should be ready in time for gay events that are planned for the future, however," said Gabbai's spokesman Yair Givati.

Meretz faction leader MK Zahava Gal'on condemned the proposed amendment, saying that "every group must have the right of expression." She and party colleague MK Chaim Oron warned that "the sword that is aimed at one group today could be aimed at another tomorrow." Prime Minister Ehud Olmert consented to allow the coalition MKs - specifically those of Shas - to vote their conscience on the bill. Olmert said that he himself personally opposes the bill, though he agrees that Jerusalem is "not the natural place for a parade by homosexuals because of the special sensitivity" in the holy city.

MK Moshe Sharoni (Pensioners) said he feels the homosexuals can march in any other city: "Why Jerusalem? What, do they want to get the Christians and the Moslems angry at us? Do they want the whole world to hate us even more? They're a small minority, and this is the law."

"Once certain rabbis give the word, their followers will understand that
an abomination march cannot be allowed to happen in the holy city, and will do practically anything to stop it ........"

Posters and Prayer Rallies

The hareidi-religious and religious sectors in Jerusalem are beginning a series of actions designed to prevent the parade from taking place. A body calling itself The Committee to Stop the Abomination Parade, backed by the Yesha Rabbis Council, the Sanhedrin, Jerusalem City Councilwoman Mina Fenton and others, has taken the following steps: Posters and billboards against the parade, road-blockings against a gay parade taking place in Haifa today (Wednesday), a possible protest rally against a planned march in Tel Aviv this Friday, and a protest tent at the entrance to Jerusalem beginning this week.

In addition, the group has filed for a police permit to hold a mass prayer-and-protest rally at the entrance to Jerusalem on the day of the planned march. A donor has already agreed to pay for 1,000 buses to bring participants from all over the country. The event will be gender-separate; women will congregate at the beginning of Herzl Blvd., while men will occupy the road leading to Ramot.

Organizers say they will not sanction violence at these events. However, one organizer told Arutz-7 that once certain rabbis give the word to approve protests, "their followers will understand that an abomination march is something that cannot be allowed to happen in the holy city, and they will do practically anything to stop it."

Police have authorized the parade in principle, but have hinged the actual permit on their check of the actual route and other considerations of public security.


Religious MKs Slam J'lem Gay Tourism Campaign

Religious MKs Slam J'lem Gay Tourism Campaign
New 'pink Jerusalem' campaign aimed at promoting gay tourism in capital and partly sponsored by state, angers religious legislators who threaten no-confidence motion over issue.
"This is a delusional campaign for a minority with a normative defect," Deputy Prime Minister Eli Yishai said Tuesday, responding to reports about a new Ministry of Tourism international campaign promoting gay tourism in Jerusalem.

The campaign, produced by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel and the Homosexuals and Lesbians organization, together with the Tourism Ministry, features same-sex couples photographed at tourist attractions and places of historic interest in the capital.

"I unequivocally reject the attempt to focus a state-sponsored campaign on a delusional minority that suffers from a normative defect," Yishai said, "Jerusalem and Amsterdam are the same for these people. Therefore, those who fail to recognize Jerusalem's holiness had better stay away from it."

Tourism Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said that the campaign was initiated by his predecessor, Abraham Hirchson, and then he himself rejected it strongly.

'Campaign undermines status-quo'
MK Benyamin Elon (National Union), a former tourism minister, harshly protested the issue to the tourism minister Tuesday, and received a reply from Aharonovitch that the campaign photos were published without his knowledge, and that he planned to instruct his office not to promote the matter in the future.

Meanwhile, the party threatened to file a no-confidence motion to the Knesset over the affair.

Another former tourism minister, MK Yitzhak Levy (National Union-NRP), also referred to the campaign saying, "I protest the portrayal of Israel as a pink, namely – gay, paradise. Israel used to be famous for values and holiness, and here a red line has been crossed."

Shlomo Rosenstein, a member of the Jerusalem city council representing the United Torah Judaism, said that, "The Jerusalem municipality and the haredi coalition are doing their utmost to maintain the peaceful atmosphere in town, which has proved itself in the last three years. Provocations will do no nothing for Jerusalem but undermine the status-quo and coexistence within the fragile fabric of life and relations between the different sectors in Jerusalem.

"I'm surprised that the Tourism Ministry and the person heading it chose to destroy, rather than build. This campaign is disgusting and will drive tourists away from Jerusalem and Israel."

JFK Plotters May Be Linked to Top Terrorist, Adnan Shukrijumah

Airport Terror Plot Thwarted;

"He had a vision that would make the WTC attack seem small."


What jihad? Someone alert the Democratic party dammit

hat tip MaraDrudge has a siren flashing: Kennedy Airport Terror Plot Thwarted

According to NewsChannel4's Jonathan Dienst, sources said federal investigators have made arrests in an alleged terror plot on Kennedy Airport.

Law enforcement officials said the plot may involved a former airport worker.

A press conference is scheduled for 1 p.m. this afternoon.

UPDATE: 1:15 PM Law enforcement official calls suspects "al Qaeda wannabes"

Three arrested, one still at large. These men were under surveillance for some time. They were hoping to blow up a jet fuel line so as to set off a series of massive explosions. The fuel line feeds John F. Kennedy International Airport and runs through residential neighborhoods, officials close to the investigation said.(more here)

The official said the plotters had conducted surveillance on giant jet fuel tanks at JFK and the pipeline. They had taken surveillance video of the targets and took it to Trinidad to review the tape, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the arrests were not yet announced.

These Islamic terrorists have been tentatively tied to Jamaat Muslimeen (sp?) "struggle for Islam" - orgininating from Trinidad (the Caribbean is now a hot spot.) Places you least expect.

It seems a Parliamentarian was involved in this plot. Yes, A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL. A former member of the parliament in Guyana.Those arrested include a U.S. citizen; a second U.S. citizen who is a naturalized citizen from Guyana; and one Trinidadian. Authorities are also looking for one more person, who is from Guyana. One of the suspects was an airline worker with "intimate knowledge of entire airport and inner workings of JFK."

One suspect, a U.S. citizen who is a native of Guyana and who once worked at the airport, was described by a source as "a very angry Muslim extremist."

"A very angry Muslim extremist?" Is there any other kind?

Another suspect is a former member of parliament in Guyana, several law enforcement officials said.

A wiretap transcript the FBI gave CNN indicated the plotters targeted the airport because of the popularity of its namesake:

Anytime you hit Kennedy, it is the most hurtful thing to the United States. ... This whole country will be in mourning. It's like you can kill the man twice," the transcript quotes one suspect as saying.

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Full article here

In all, four individuals, including the former Guyana parliament member, Abdul Kadir, and Russell Defreitas, a U.S. citizen and native of Guyana who worked as an airport cargo worker, have been charged with conspiring to attack JFK.

Also in custody are Kareem Ibrahim, a citizen of Trinidad held in Trinidad, and Abdel Nur, a citizen of Guyana. The United States is planning to seek their extradition.

UPDATE: 1:38 pm Liveblogging press conference:

DA: "The most chilling plot imaginable." The damage and carnage impossible to fathom. The devastation that this would have caused is just unthinkable."

Plot spread from NY to Guyana and Trinidad.

" Huge concern about the fuel line. The feeding tube that feeds international commerce, airport, residences." "The Buckeye Pipeline (orginates from Allentown Pa.), a 40 million fuel line, runs from New Jersey to Nassau (JFK) ......" It is the central fuel line.

"This plot similar and different to ones in the past (the Lincoln tunnel planned blow up, the '93 stock exchange plot, the Financial District plot) . It is different as it is tied to the Caribbean. Similiar in that it is a self radicalized New Yorker plotting to betray his country with a catastrophic event."

Growing concern about terror cells in the Caribbean.

"New York has become complacent."
"We urge NY , if you see something, say something!"[what would CAIR say about that? LAWSUIT! - Atlas]"Look at the world through the eyes, through the prism of September 11th."

One of the suspects (Defreitas - sp?) was quoted as saying: "the attacks would result in the destruction of the whole of JFK and destroy whole parts of Queens. Few people would survive."

"Even the twin towers can't touch it. This would destroy the whole US economy"

The complaint adds that an informant and Defreitas discussed the war in Lebanon in August 2006 and agreed, "Muslims always incur the wrath of the world while the Jews get a pass."

It was at that point, court records say, Defreitas shared with the informant "that he had a vision that would make the WTC attack seem small."

Update: Some background info from the intrepid Bill Warner (currently being sued by Muslims for publishing news items about Islamic terrorists in our midst.)

Jamaat Muslimeen (in Trinidad) TERROR GROUP BEHIND JFK AIRPORT PLOTThe MSM HAS NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE Jamaat Muslimeen TERROR GROUP. Go here for full article.

In Trinidad INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted 1/23/2007

Homeland Security: There's a lot of talk about al-Qaida safe havens in Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. But the FBI is closely watching a potential hot spot in our own hemisphere.

Al-Qaida is suspected of having set up a front in the Caribbean island state of Trinidad, and sympathetic jihadists have already launched a movement there to replace Trinidad's Westernized government with Islamic law.

The militant Muslim group Jamaat al-Muslimeen staged a bloody coup attempt in Trinidad last decade that involved the firebombing of police headquarters in Port-of-Spain. A rash of bombings over the past couple of years has been linked to the group, whose leader, Yasin Abu Bakr, recently was released from prison after claiming to be ill.

Local police had arrested him in 2005 after raiding his headquarters and seizing high-powered rifles, grenades, walkie-talkies and 700 rounds of ammo. He awaits trial for inciting religious violence and terrorism.

The number of Bakr's followers is said to be growing, along with the number of kidnappings, murders and bombings in Trinidad. And fears are growing within the Department of Homeland Security and FBI that Trinidadian jihadists could train and export terrorists to strike the U.S.

Trinidad might be harboring the "next Mohamed Atta," a college-educated, English-speaking Saudi native known within al-Qaida as "Jafar the pilot." His real name is Adnan El Shukrijumah, and the FBI considers him "armed and dangerous." He's been connected to al-Qaida plots to attack America with dirty bombs.

Local papers report that Shukrijumah has stayed with friends in Trinidad, and worshiped at local mosques, indicating a possible cell exists there. U.S. authorities at Miami International Airport are closely monitoring inbound flights from that area.

The FBI's Web site says Shukrijumah "carries a Guyanese passport but may attempt to enter the United States with a Trinidadian passport."

Shukrijumah's late father is Guyanese. He taught Arabic and lectured in mosques there and in Trinidad before moving to America to work for the Saudi Embassy and then run a small radical mosque in Florida (which was bankrolled by the former Saudi ambassador, according to Newsweek). Shukrijumah still has relatives in Guyana, which is near Trinidad.

UPDATE: Feared JFK Plotters Linked to Top Terrorist ABC

FBI agents feared but never confirmed the three men accused of plotting to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York were linked to one of the most wanted al Qaeda leaders, Adnan Shukrijumah, known to have operated out of Guyana and Trinidad.

Officials tell the Blotter on that they heard repeated references to "Adnan" during the extensive wiretaps conducted on the suspects' telephone conversations, including calls to Guyana and Trinidad.

There is a $5 million reward for information on Shukrijumah, who officials consider extremely dangerous because of the years he spent living in the Miami area and his known ties to al Qaeda. Some of the 9/ll hijackers attended a south Florida mosque run by Shukrijumah's now deceased father.

Shukrijumah left the United States just a few months before September 2001. More here

SEPT. 4th 2006, HIS SSN* 109-84-0648 WAS ISSUED IN NYC DURING 1995; ONE of the world's most wanted terrorists, Al Qaeda operative Adnan el-Shukrijumah, may be still hiding in Trinidad and Tobago and has, in his possession, a T&T passport, his father had been an Iman at the Mosque in Port-au-Spain Trinidad.



Shukrijumah, the FBI says he is "wanted in connection with possible terrorist threats against the United States". Local law enforcement officials said they were aware that Shukrijumah was or had been in Trinidad and confirmed they were contacted by the FBI for assistance in the matter.

The father Gulshair El-Shukrijumah (deceased) was the Iman at the Masjid Nur Ul-Islam 3324 Church Ave, Brooklyn NY 11203 for at least 5 years during the 1990's and the Iman at the Masjid Nur UL Islam Mosque in Trinidad during the mid 1980's.

The SSN for Adnan el-Shukrijumah came from Bill Warner. Adnan's brother, and mother still live in Florida. His sister is in Chicago.

UPDATE: FBI Report, two of the suspects arrested, Abdul Kadir & Abdel Nur, were members of Jamaat al-Muslimeen (JAM) based in Trinidad. Implicated in the JFK terror plot Jamaat Muslimeen LEADER YASIN ABU BAKR

Yasin Abu Bakr's, aka Lennox Phillip, latest antics (he is in ctr. with "Soldiers of Allah") have led to his arrest and incarceration since November 2005 on terrorism and weapons charges. The latest charges implicate Abu Bakr in a string of bombings that hit Port of Spain and St. James in 2005. He is also accused of ordering the murder of former members of the Jamaat-ul-Fuqra that were expelled or split from the group because of ideological differences to set up an Islamic state in Trinidad or shifts in allegiance to rival Afro-Trinidadian Muslim groups (Tobago & Trinidad Guardian, January 28, 2005).

Nov. 2005

Government's drastic anti-crime initiative paid off yesterday, when a large contingent of police and army officers from the Special Anti-crime Unit (SAUTT) and other sections of the Police Service raided the Jamaat al Muslimeen compound at Mucurapo Road.

Armed with search warrants and metal detectors, the officers surrounded the Jamaat compound from as early as 4 am, and ordered that no one enter, or leave.

The action took place while Jamaat al Muslimeen Leader Yasin Abu Bakr was in a cell at the Port-of-Spain CID awaiting his court appearance on four charges arising out of statements allegedly made during Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations at the Jamaat compound.

He was only told of the raid at the mosque while he was at the Port-of-Spain Magistrates' Court.
Newsday learned that officers found a hand grenade, several rounds of ammunition, and an assault rifle. The items were placed in a heavily tinted vehicle and taken to the St James Police Station.

Palestinian terrorist leader arrested having car sex near Arafat's grave

Israel today arrested a longtime wanted terror leader here in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

According to Israeli security officials and Palestinian sources in Ramallah speaking to WND, the terrorist was arrested while having car sex just a few hundred feet from late PLO leader Yasser Arafat's grave site.

Khaled Shawish was captured by undercover Israeli police forces following scores of shooting attacks he is suspected of carrying out. Shawish, who doubles as the Ramallah chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, previously boasted of involvement in a West Bank shooting attack in December 2000 that killed Israeli ultranationalist leader Benjamin Kahane and Kahane's wife, Talya, and seriously wounded their five daughters.

According to Israeli security officials and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades sources in Ramallah, Shawish was arrested after the Israeli police stormed his jeep, which was parked in a lot outside the Muqata, about 200 feet from Arafat's grave.

The sources said at the time of his arrest, Shawish was having intercourse in the back seat of his jeep with a Palestinian woman, whose identity is being withheld by WND. The woman was not his wife.

The Fatah-linked murderer was responsible for the deaths of eighteen other people and the wounding of dozens in numerous attacks, including several in and around Jerusalem. Among the attacks orchestrated by Shawish were:

- a 2002 suicide bombing on King George Street in Jerusalem

- a 2002 suicide bombing by a female terrorist at a checkpoint just outside Jerusalem

- a shooting attack in the French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem

Terror leader arrested having car sex near Arafat's grave. Israeli forces raid jeep of longtime wanted militant caught in compromising position.

RAMALLAH – Israel today arrested a longtime wanted terror leader here in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

According to Israeli security officials and Palestinian sources in Ramallah speaking to WND, the terrorist was arrested while having car sex just a few hundred feet from late PLO leader Yasser Arafat's grave site.

Khaled Shawish, an officer in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Force 17 presidential guards, was captured by undercover Israeli police forces following scores of shooting attacks he is suspected of carrying out. Shawish, who doubles as the Ramallah chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, previously boasted of involvement in a West Bank shooting attack in December 2000 that killed Israeli ultra nationalist leader Benjamin Kahane and Kahane's wife, Talya.

The Brigades is the declared "military wing" of Abbas' Fatah party.

After the Kahane murder, Shawish was extended refuge by Arafat to live in the late PLO leader's Ramallah compound, widely known as the Muqata. Arafat is buried at the entrance to the Muqata.

Shawish continued the past seven years to live in the Muqata, from which, according to Israeli security officials, he directed the Brigades to carry out scores of shootings against Israelis driving on West Bank roads.

Several years ago Shawish sustained an injury during a gun battle with the Israel Defense Forces and has since been confined to a wheelchair, although he is still able to drive.

According to Israeli security officials and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades sources in Ramallah, Shawish was arrested after the Israeli police stormed his jeep, which was parked in a lot outside the Muqata, about 200 feet from Arafat's grave. The sources said at the time of his arrest, Shawish was having intercourse in the back seat of his jeep with a Palestinian woman, whose identity is being withheld by WND. The woman was not his wife.

The Brigades, founded by Arafat, largely considers the late PLO leader's resting place to be a sacred site.
