>Dear friends,

> The past two weeks i have been trying to find meaning to the words "World

>Justice", this is what i came up with:



> 1)The Democratic State of Israel is to use rubber and exploding bullets

>(both banned worldwide) against stone hurling children, this is World



> 2)Using tanks, rockets, and Apachi helicopters against unarmed civillians

>is World Justice.


> 3)105 palestinians died in these confrontations so far, most of them

>children, and yet, the USA did not condem the Israeli violence. This is

>World Justice.


> 4) 2 israeli soldiers who sneeked into palestinian terretories carrying

>explosives and a hit list were killed by an angry palestinian mob after

>being caught. The Israelis clame that the soldiers lost their way into

>Palestinian terretories, let me point this out. Ramallah, the city they


>so called lost in, was surrounded by Israeli blocades and check points. How

>exactly did they pass these checkpoints? The USA Condems this. This is

>World Justice.


> 5)Jewish settlers attack unarmed arabs and burn their houses. The

>settlers were accompanied by Israeli soldiers sent there to protect the

>settlers from the unarmed arabs. This is World Justice.


> 6)The USA threatens to VITO any resolution passed in the UN condeming

>Israeli violence. This is World Justice.


> 7)Koffi Anan and Madeline Albright condem the capture of three Israeli

>soldiers off occupied land in South Lebanon. They were captured by Lebanese

>Freedom Fighters. The UN resolution 225 recognizes these lands to be

>occupied by Israel, giving the Freedom Fighters every right to do whatever

>necessary to free their land. This is World Justice.


> 8)The shooting of 12 year old Mohamed Al Dura in cold blood on live TV by

>Israeli Snipers (45 minutes of direct shooting on Mohamed and his father


>on live TV). This is World Justice.


> 9)CNN shows footage of the 2 israeli soldiers been killed but neglects to

>show any footage on the 105 palestinians shot to death.This is World




>I can go on and on, but this is what "World Justice" seems to stand for at

>the moment.
