Ibrahim Barzak

Error (Associated Press, Ibrahim Barzak, 10/15/03): But in the bloody conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, there has been an unofficial policy of “hands off” the Americans, though 49 Americans, many with dual citizenship, have been caught in the crossfire in the past three years of fighting.

Fact: As of Oct. 17, 2003, approximately 85 Americans have been killed or wounded in Israel and the disputed territories since September 2000. (The breakdown is 38 killed and 47 wounded.) Of the 47 U.S. citizens killed, none were “caught in the crossfire.” With the exception of Rachel Corrie, accidentally killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip, all those killed were targeted by Palestinian terrorists and were non-combatants–riding buses, eating pizza, drinking coffee, and driving in their cars.
