Saturday, March 1 in the news.....

  • Britain's defense chief decided Friday to immediately pull Prince Harry out of Afghanistan after news of his deployment was leaked on the US Web site the Drudge Report. Prince Harry is believed to be getting extracted to the safety of a London nightclub.

  • Israeli leaders warned Friday of an approaching conflagration in the Gaza Strip as Israel activated a rocket warning system to protect Ashkelon, a city of 120,000 people, from Palestinian rockets. Israel pounded Hamas-run Gaza on Thursday, killing 4 children aged 8, 9, 11 and 12, as they played in a field during an Israeli air strike around the northern town of Jabaliya. Hamas denied the Zionists would directly bomb children in revenge aimed at them, saying they would sooner try and lend money to them and charge interest to their parents.
