    Anyone have any idea if there is going to be a UN vote regarding killing (who's even talking about expelling) Saddam............???

    He was elected as well.......by an even larger margin than Arafat.........used similar tactics....but was better at maths......

    Seriously, in principle why isn't there a resolution put about him as well?

    My goodness......he never ordered suicide bombings........(preferred to kill them with shredding machines).....and anyway, he only did it to the good folks who elected him.

    Saddam could argue he had a mandate.......but what about Arafat? Who gave him a mandate to send out terror squads?

    As I said.....screw the UN....the House of Lies....together with that dork at the top, Kofi Annan, who presided over the Rwanda debacle/genocide.

    Maybe he didn't care....after all it was blacks killing blacks........800,000 plus......!!

    What a stuffed up world.........double standards glaring at you..........

    UN to vote Mon. to forbid Israel from expelling Arafat

    By Shlomo Shamir, Aluf Benn, and Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service and Agencies

    The United Nations Security Council was set to vote
    on Monday on a resolution, drafted by Arab states
    with the support of non-aligned nations, to forbid
    Israel from deporting Palestinian Authority
    Chairman Yasser Arafat from the territories.

    The United States is expected to
    abstain from the vote,
    according to Israeli and other
    diplomatic sources in New York,
    who said the resolution was
    moderate and restrained, and
    includes nothing the Americans
    "cannot live with."

    Prior to the UN vote, the Arab
    League will be meeting in Cairo

    on Monday to formulate a unified position on
    Israel's decision to "remove" Arafat, Israel
    Radio reported.

    The resolution includes a clause saying, "the
    Council demands that Israel, the occupying
    power, immediately cease deportation steps and
    halt all threats against the elected president
    of the Palestinian Authority."

    The resolution does not mention Arafat by name,
    but another clause states emphasizes that the
    president of the PA is chosen democratically
    and his deportation is thus forbidden.

    It also includes a clause indicating that "the
    Security Council is concerned with the
    deterioration of the situation on the ground,
    including the escalation in illegal
    assassinations and suicide terror attacks."

    The representatives of a number of states that
    are not regular members of the Security Council
    are expected to address the council during
    Monday's session. It is not certain if the vote
    on the resolution will take place on Monday or

    UN Secretary General Kofi Annan warned Israel
    Saturday that the "deportation of Arafat will
    dangerously exacerbate the tension and
    instability in the region."
