Israeli commission criticizes police force NEWS IN BRIEF


JERUSALEM (AP) - A groundbreaking Israeli
commission of inquiry found police used excessive
force in quelling Arab riots three years ago and said
in a stinging report released yesterday that the Jew-
ish state "has systematically neglected its Arab
The document -the product of three years of inves-
tigation - was based on the testimony of 377 witness-
es and only the fifth probe of such scope in Israel's
The panel's findings came as Israeli-Palestinian vio-
lence flared anew yesterday
An Israeli helicopter fired missiles at a car carrying
three Hamas militants in Gaza City, killing one and
wounding another. Twenty-five bystanders also were
hurt in the sixth Israeli missile strike in two weeks. In
the West Bank city of Nablus, soldiers shot and critical-
ly wounded a 15-year-old boy after a firebomb set their
tank on fire.
Israel has been waging war on Hamas in retaliation
for the suicide bombing that killed 21 people on a
Jerusalem bus Aug. 19. With yesterday's attack, 14
Palestinians, including at least 10 Hamas members,
have been killed in missile strikes.
The panel of two judges and an academic urged the
government to come up with a detailed plan for nar-
rowing the gaps between Jews and Arab citizens, who
make up about one-fifth of the population of 6.6 mil-

lion people.
Israeli Arabs say they have long been discriminated
against in economic opportunities, land distribution
and civil rights.
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's office said the panel's
recommendations would be discussed by the Cabinet.
Successive Israeli governments have promised to do
more for Arab communities, but little has been
Arab leaders said the report did not go far enough,
and thatsthey had hoped senior police officers would
face prosecution.
The commission recommended that several police
commanders not be promoted and that two lower-level
officers be removed. While the recommendations
aren't binding, they carry great weight, and the attor-
ney general could still seek criminal charges against
some of the officers.
The commission was appointed after police shot and
killed 13 Arab citizens in weeklong riots in October
2000. A Jewish motorist was killed by a rock in the
Thousands of Israeli Arabs had taken to the streets to
show support for Palestinians in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, who a month earlier had embarked on an
uprising against Israeli occupation.
Then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak decided to launch
a formal inquiry, in part to deflect growing Arab anger

'The state and all its RICHFIELD, Ohio
governments failed consistently Bush unveils 'manufacturing czar' post
in dealinr with the problems


raised by the existence of a
large Arab minority within the
Jewish state."
- Israeli police inquiry commission
against his government. Barak had been elected in May
1999 on a peace platform, with strong Arab support.
The report put the blame for the riots squarely on the
shoulders of the Israeli establishment, saying a major
cause was systematic government neglect of the Arab
"The state and all its governments failed consistently
in dealing with the problems raised by the existence of
a large Arab minority within a Jewish state," it stated.
"The government's approach to the Arab sector
was in large part characterized by neglect and dis-
crimination. The establishment did not demonstrate
sufficient sensitivity to the Arab sector, nor did it
budget its resources in an equal way to the Arab

President Bush announced yesterday he is creating a high-level government
post to nurture the manufacturing sector, which is bleeding jobs in states crucial
to his re-election.
On a rain-soaked Labor Day trip to a factory training center, Bush said he had
directed Commerce Secretary Don Evans to establish an assistant position to
focus "on the needs of manufacturers." Keeping factory jobs is critical to a broad-
er economic recovery, the president said, his outdoor venue ringed by cranes,
backhoes and bulldozers.
Bush said the nation has lost "thousands of jobs in manufacturing." In
fact, the losses have soared into the millions: Of the 2.7 million jobs the U.S.
economy has lost since the recession began in early 2001, 2.4 million were in
manufacturing. The downturn has eliminated more than one in 10 of the
nation's factory jobs.
The president attributed the erosion to productivity gains and to jobs
flowing to cheaper labor markets overseas. He suggested that jobs moving
to foreign shores was his primary reason for creating the new manufactur-
ing czar.
N. Korea rejects U.S. nuclear demands
Keeping up its bellicose rhetoric, North Korea yesterday dismissed U.S.
demands that the communist nation scrap its nuclear program as "a game even
kids won't play."
North Korea took an angry, hard-line stance following last week's landmark
talks in Beijing with the United States, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia
about its nuclear programs.
"Despite our goodwill and generosity, the United States has shown no readiness
to drop its hostile policy toward the DPRK during the latest talks and blatantly put
forward new gang-style demands," the Foreign Ministry said yesterday in a state-
ment from its Moscow embassy, according to the Interfax news agency.
"That means ... they promise not to shoot and we are supposed to lay down
weapons first," the North Korean statement said. "It's a game even kids won't play."
North Korea says the United States must first provide security and aid guaran-
tees before it will consider abandoning its nuclear programs.
North Korea on Saturday said there was no need for more talks.

Tape demes
bomb ties
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - As a huge
funeral procession for a beloved Shiite
cleric marched to the holy city of Najaf,
Arab TV broadcast an audiotape yester-
day purportedly from Saddam Hussein
denying any involvement in the bombing
that killed the moderate ayatollah.
The U.S.-picked Iraqi Governing
Council, meanwhile, named a new Cabi-
net in a step toward reclaiming some
powers from the American occupiers. The
new government mirrors the ethnic and
religious makeup of the 25-member
The voice on the tape appeared to be
that of Saddam and employed his well-
known rhetorical flourishes in urging
Iraqis not to believe those who blamed
him and his followers for Friday's attack
on the sacred Imam Ali shrine in Najaf
that killed Ayatollah Mohammad Baqir
al-Hakim and 124 other people.


3 charged in deadly
Bombay bombings
Police yesterday charged two men
and a woman with the twin bombings
that killed 52 people last week in Bom-
bay, India's financial capital.
The three suspects were arrested
under India's tough anti-terrorism
law and would appear in court later
yesterday, said M.R. Raut, chief
prosecutor in Bombay.
He said the three were charged with
illegally possessing explosives, conspir-
acy in both bombings and planting one
of the bombs in the parking lot of the
Gateway of India, an arch that is a
tourist attraction.
Raut declined to give the names of
the suspects, who could face the death
penalty if found guilty.
About 150 people were injured
when two taxis carrying explosives
blew up within minutes of each on
Aug. 25 in Bombay, one at the Gate-
way of India and the other at a busy
shopping complex.
Jackson arrested at
Yale protest, strike
The Rev. Jesse Jackson and 13 peo-
ple were arrested yesterday after they
blocked traffic on the Yale University
campus in support of striking university
service and clerical workers.

Jackson led more than 1,000 people
on a Labor Day march and rally in sup-
port of the striking workers before he
was arrested.
"This is the site of national Labor
Day outrage," Jackson said. "This is
going to be for economic justice what
Selma was for the right to vote."
The march ended in a rally at
Yale's Beinecke Plaza and Wood-
bridge Hall, which houses university
President Richard Levin's office.
Police said 1,000 to 1,500 people
marched with Jackson.
Celebs slow to back
Arnold in gov. race
For years, Arnold Schwarzeneg-
ger's movies have created more buzz
in Hollywood than almost anybody
else's, yet there has been a resounding
silence as this industry town consid-
ers whether he can also produce a hit
at the ballot box office.
Celebrities, even those who normally
aren't shy about speaking out when it
comes to politics, have so far'kept quiet
about the highest-profile movie star to
enter a California governor's race since
Ronald Reagan.
"That's the question everybody is ask-
ing. Where is Hollywood?" said Bob
Dowling, publisher and editor in chief of
The Hollywood Reporter, one of the
industry's leading trade publications.
