Israel Attacks Palestinian Refugee Camps
|Israeli infantry accompanied by tanks, helicopter gunships, bulldozers and several property developers clutching theodolites and tape measures, swept deep into Palestinian refugee camps on the West Bank today after what Prime Minister Ariel Sharon described as 'A shocking graffiti attack on the Wailing Wall'|
Ariel Sharon ordered his forces to advance into the camps after empty spray cans found in an adjacent back street with pictures of the deceased humanitarian Palestinian rap star, Yasser Arafat, printed on them, aroused the suspicions of Mossad—the Israeli secret service.
So far, UN observers say that approximately 59,207 suspected graffiti artists have lost their jobs, and up to 300 women and children rendered homeless after their luxury villas were razed to the ground. Broadband Internet and cable TV supplies have been cut, supplies of chicken soup and Gefilte fish have been seriously interrupted. Sources not anywhere near Palestine, but who watched the attacks from the safety of their hotel bedroom in Tel Aviv, report that widespread unrest is imminent, which has prompted Benjamin Netanyahu to cancel a short holiday in Crawford, Texas.
After the initial foray into the camps, Sharon announced that his government
was not prepared to tolerate such heinous attacks on sacred Israeli
institutions. A source from the Israeli Embassy who we didn't actually
speak to, but who bellowed through our letterbox, told Utterpants:
"But surely you're depriving Palestinian children of the right
to learn by destroying all their pencils?" we objected.
