- There is no formaldehyde
By Saul Singer Glick - Jerusalem Post - March 4, 2005 The biggest problem with our plunge into unilateralism is not the threat to negotiations, but training the world to think that Israel has no demands. There is no formaldehyde. Israel remains the victim of destructive Arab dreams. There is no substitute for convincing the world that the way to peace is by rejecting Arab rejectionism, rather than pressing for Israeli concessions. Even if disengagement is the right thing to do, some of the messages it sends must be immediately undone.
- The Sharansky moment?
By Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - March 3, 2005 IAfter reading Sharansky's book, The Case for Democracy, Bush told The New York Times that Sharansky's worldview "is part of my presidential DNA." This Sharansky-inspired "presidential DNA" posits that the Arab world's conflict with Israel, like its support for global jihad, will end when the Arab world democratizes. In Sharansky's view, once Arabs are governed democratically, they will not wish to sustain the conflict. If Sharansky and Bush are correct, then the past week has been one of the greatest weeks in the history of the Middle East
- A London Salute for Terror
By Michael Freund - March 2, 2005 About the only thing missing from the little pep rally for the Palestinians in England was a squad of cheerleaders swinging colorful pompoms in the air while reciting some catchy tunes.
- That old double-standard
By David J. Forman - Jerusalem Post - March 3, 2005 The World Council of Churches, following in the footsteps of the Presbyterian Church, has called for divestment from Israel. The Presbyterians claim that "the occupation... has proven to be at the root of evil acts committed against innocent people on both sides of the conflict." Does that mean the Presbyterian Church is justifying a Palestinian going into a Jewish home and shooting, at point-blank range, a five-year old and three-year old child in their beds? Does it justify the slaughter of innocent Israelis - Arabs and Jews - in buses, restaurants, discotheques, hotels and malls?

- Religious Zionism's bright future
Michael Freund - Jerusalem Post - March 1, 2005 But anyone familiar with Jewish history knows that such setbacks are not without precedent. Jews have been expelled from Gaza six times in the past two millennia. The first to expel them was the Roman emperor Gavinius, in the year 61 CE, followed by the Crusaders, Napoleon, the Ottoman Turks, Arab rioters in 1929 and the Egyptian army in 1948.
- The Mideast's 'unsettled grievance'
By Joseph Farah - WorldNetDaily.com - February 24, 2005 The Arabs are being asked to do what they have been asked repeatedly to do, and agreed repeatedly to do, but failed to do – that is, act like civilized people, stop the killing, stop the hatred, deal with reality, stop the theft of money intended to help their people, etc. On the basis of hope that this is actually going to happen this time, the Israelis are being asked to carve their own tiny little country in half and hand over 50 percent of their territory to people who seek to destroy their nation and wipe out all their people.
- PA grants Tel Aviv bomber martyr status
By Jerusalem Newswire Editorial Staff - www.jnewswire.com - March 3, 2005
The young Palestinian Arab who slaughtered five Israeli Jews in a “suicide” bomb attack on a Tel Aviv nightclub last Friday was labeled a “martyr” by major PA-controlled media outlets this week.
Following his act of mass murder, “Palestinian” radio and newspapers afforded 26-year-old Abdullah Badran Islam’s highest level of human achievement – that of a “shahid.”
Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch wrote in The Jerusalem Post that “by granting shahid status to the murderer, the PA media are portraying suicide terror as a positive religious act.”
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority’s English-language condemnations of the bombing were taken at face value by the international community.
The PA’s seemingly contradicting positions supported assertions that for PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas, the only problem with the attack was in its timing.
Even when speaking to foreign reporters, Abbas failed to denounce the murder of Israeli Jews as morally wrong, and instead focused on how the bombing had damaged “Palestinian” interests.
“Everyone felt that the timing is not [right] and there is absolutely no need for it... It is not because the resistance against the occupation [terrorism] is a mistake, but because the nature, location and timing of the action are a mistake,” PA legislator Hassan Asfour told PA TV on Monday.
Marcus noted that the message being sent to the “Palestinian” street by the Abbas regime is the same as that broadcast for years by Yasser Arafat:
“Killing Israeli civilians is positive. Just be sure the timing's right.”
