Nablus,West Bank:

Israelis conduct raid after foiled bombing

Israeli soldiers blew open doors with grenades, rummaged through closets and rounded up residents yesterday while searching for fugitives and bomb labs in Nablus' old city — the largest army operation in the militant stronghold in more than a year.

Earlier in the week, an 18-year-old from Nablus, recruited by Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a militant group with ties to Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement, to blow himself up in Jerusalem, was caught at an Israeli checkpoint; soldiers later found his explosives in a school bag. The army said the raid was triggered, in part, by that arrest.

Fun Factoids, such as:
The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but it took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound -- a 51-day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time that it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose law firm billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida.

We Really, Really, Really want Kerry nominated.
