Stevie Joe's Mideast Update

Just checking the news of the week to see how things are going over in the Middle East:

- Osama bin Laden declares war on Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, his government, and his army. Bin Laden encourages all Muslims of Pakistan to revolt. If he is successful in toppling Musharraf, he may gain control of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal.

- Iran prepares plans to bomb Israel.

- Israel bombs Syria, possibly because the Syrians are receiving weapons from North Korea. In the process, Israel also violates Turkish airspace.

- Israel declares the Gaza Strip a "hostile entity" and cuts off fuel, electricity, and water to the area.

Interesting week, eh?
