    Israel To U.S.: Don't Delay Iraq Attack

    By Dan Collins

    (CBS) Israel is urging U.S. officials not to delay a military strike against Iraq's Saddam Hussein, an aide to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Friday.
    Israeli intelligence officials have gathered evidence that Iraq is speeding up efforts to produce biological and chemical weapons, said Sharon aide Ranaan Gissin.

    "Any postponement of an attack on Iraq at this stage will serve no purpose," Gissin said. "It will only give him (Saddam) more of an opportunity to accelerate his program of weapons of mass destruction."

    The United States has been considering a military campaign against Iraq to remove Saddam from power, listing him as one of the world's main terrorist regimes. However, there is considerable world opposition to a U.S. strike.

    As evidence of Iraq's weapons building activities, Israel points to an order Saddam gave to Iraq's Atomic Energy Commission last week to speed up its work, Gissin said.

    "Saddam's going to be able to reach a point where these weapons will be operational," he said.
    Meanwhile, Iraq told the United Nations on Friday that it will continue to discuss the return of U.N. weapons inspectors, but it insisted on conditions that Secretary-General Kofi Annan has already rejected.
    In a 10-page letter to Annan, Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri reaffirmed an Iraqi offer to hold a round of technical negotiations but he insisted they focus on outstanding issues related to Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction as well as "practical arrangements for the return of the inspection system in the future."

    Sabri was replying to a letter from Annan that rejected Iraq's proposal to have chief weapons inspector Hans Blix and Iraqi experts determine outstanding disarmament issues of mass destruction and figure out how to resolve them before inspectors return to the country.
    Also on Friday, President Bush said he knows there are "very intelligent people" who doubt the wisdom of attacking Iraq.
    But he says Saddam Hussein is "thumbing his nose at the world" -- and must be ousted.
    Speaking to reporters near his Texas ranch, the president vowed to make his own decision -- based on the best intelligence available.

    Gissin also said Israel was not seeking to dictate the timing of a U.S. military campaign but said that, faced with the threat of one, Saddam was fast developing weapons. Iraq has few chemical and biological weapons, Ben-Eliezer said.

    Pamoja na uongo huo wa Isrel ambao ulichangia kuleta vita vinavyoendelea kuuua malaki ya watu hadi sasa, kuna watu humu wanajaribu kutudanganya ati ni Taifa la Mungu. Labda kama Mungu wao nae ni Muongo!!!
