A Thought From Professor Steven Plaut:
- Because it's the right thing to do
By Barry Shaw - Israelinsider.com - January 3, 2005 Many countries have given larger donations of aid than Israel, but there is a special poignancy to the Israeli contribution. It was offered spontaneously, despite the fact that recipients were among those who have consistently called for the eradication of the Jewish state, and have supported and applauded the campaign of suicide attacks against innocent Israelis.
"Saudi Arabia has pledged $10 million for millions of Muslim refugees of the tsunami disaster. Last year, Saudi Arabia raised $150 million dollars for the families of suicide bombers."
"Palestine" Goes to the Polls
- Time to Vote
By Charles Krauthammer - Townhall.com - January 7, 2005 Has no one learned anything? Now Arafat is dead, Mahmoud Abbas is poised to succeed him, and the world is swooning again. Abbas, we are told, is the great hope, the moderate, the opponent of violence, the man who has said the intifada was counterproductive. The peacemaker cometh. Once again, euphoria is in the air. Once again, no one wants to listen to what is being said.
- Shame on Us
By Frank J. Gaffney Jr. - WorldNetDaily.com - January 7, 2005 Ronald Reagan had a favorite expression: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!" Official Washington's enthusiasm for the ascendancy of Mahmoud Abbas as the Palestinians' incipient "elected" president surely deserves a Reaganesque "shame on us" rebuke.
- Can Palestinian Authority be safe for democracy?
By Michael D. Evans - WorldNetDaily.com - January 7, 2005 Many peace-seekers in the world – not just Israelis and Palestinians – are clinging to the hope that the Jan. 9 election in the Palestinian Authority will be a genuine turning point in the resolution of this terrible conflict. Unfortunately, all the signs indicate that this is not likely to happen.
- The Next Arafat
By Rachel Ehrenfeld - FrontPageMagazine.com - January 5, 2005 It is deja-vu all over again. A decade of Palestinian terror and corruption seems to be wiped clean from the memory of both the American and the European governments. Apparently, merely having an election following Yasser Arafat's death inspires instant confidence in the corrupt Palestinian leadership.
- Should we believe in Palestinian "democracy"?
Jonathan S. Tobin - Israelinsider.com - January 2, 2005 Those pious liberals like former President Jimmy Carter, who always think killers like Arafat can, if sufficiently appeased, be relied upon to contain terrorists, are dead wrong. Indeed, Israel's whole Oslo experiment -- based on the late Yitzhak Rabin's thought that Arafat would squelch terrorists in a way Israel could not -- proved the opposite.
- Four elections affect freedom worldwide
By Cal Thomas - Townhall.com - December 29, 2004 Those Palestinians who truly wish to live in peace with Israel and have something they can call a state of their own are about to be disappointed again. That's because no matter who is elected to replace Arafat, the Palestinian objective of eliminating Israel and exterminating the Jewish people will not change.
- Not much of a choice
Jerusalem Post - December 26, 2004 Abbas has openly wrapped himself in Arafat's mantle and gone out of his way to show respect for the terrorists he claims not to support. Abbas has made clear that there is no difference between his platform and Yasser Arafat's.

- Can the UN be redeemed?
By Dore Gold - Jerusalem Post - December 30, 2004 It certainly has a role to play in giving out food and tents in an emergency. The World Health Organization is crucial for stopping epidemics. But in the critical field of international peace and security, there may be no substitute for the kinds of "coalitions of the willing" used by Bill Clinton in Kosovo and by George W. Bush in Iraq, outside of the formal authorization of the UN Security Council.
