    [02] Concern for the Middle East

    There is concern in the Middle East as Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat remains hemmed in his headquarters in Ramala, while American forces are preparing for action against Iraq. American President George W Bush&#8217;s demand to the United Nations Security Council to issue a stricter resolution against Iraq caused Iraqi President Saddam Housein&#8217;s angered reaction, who stated that he would not accept any new resolution since he agreed to accept the previous one and have his arsenal inspected.

    At the same time, according to the New York Times publication, Mr Bush is already studying Pentagon&#8217;s war plans, while general Tomy Franks the commander of the American forces in the wider region of the gulf stated that he is ready for and attack.

    Meanwhile, the situation in Palestine is dramatic. Four Palestinians were killed , 50 injured and about 1,000arrested in demonstrations that broke out in the West Bank in the Gaza strip in protest of Yasser Arafat&#8217;s siege. In the evening the Israelis warned those in the compound to evacuate the building because an explosion would follow in a nearby building which was later pulled down.

    Mr Arafat&#8217;s siege will continue until the 20 Palestinians accused of terrorist acts surrender stated Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. However, the representative of the Palestinian Security Service said that no one would surrender.
