(Boston Globe, H.D.S. Greenway op-ed, 9/7/10): Arafat finally died, holed up in a bunker under Israeli siege.
(10/5/10): In my last column I incorrectly wrote that Yasser Arafat died on the West Bank. He was evacuated to France and died in a French hospital.
(Boston Globe, H.D.S. Greenway op-ed, 8/27/04): In [Richard] Perle’s case, much has been made of a paper that he and others, including the Pentagon’s Douglas Feith, wrote some years ago for Israel’s right-wing politician, Benjamin Netanyahu, calling for a “New Strategy For Securing The Realm.” Their advice included getting the United States to overthrow Saddam Hussein as well as other moves in the Middle East to increase Israel’s strategic position.
(9/2/04): In last week’s column, which defended the right of all Americans to concern themselves with other countries of their choice, I specifically defended Richard Perle’s right to help write a policy position for Israel. Although that paper called for “removing Saddah [sic] Hussein from power” as well as “strategic cooperation” with the United States, it did not specifically call upon the United States to get the job done.
(Boston Globe, H.D.S. Greenway, 3/8/02 & 3/15/02 ): "The fall of Balata" — a refugee camp — "will break the Palestinian resistance." (Brigadier General Ephraim Eitam of the Israeli Army)
(op-ed, 3/8/02) The speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Ahmed Qurei, was wounded in his car [at a checkpoint] for reasons that have not been explained. . .
((3/22/02)): In a March 8 column I said that a Palestinian politician, Ahmed Qurei, had been wounded at an Israeli checkpoint. I am happy to report that none of the eight bullets Israeli soldiers fired onto his car hit him. Also, in a March 15 column, the correct title for Ephraim Eitam is brigadier general, retired.
