    Purim 2005

  • Rushing into the abyss
    By Naomi Ragen - Israelindider.com - March 20, 2005  I haven't been writing much, because I am truly heartbroken by what is happening to Israel. It is so overwhelming, that I am temporarily at a loss for words. So much is happening, so fast, and in all the wrong directions.

  • In the name of the father
    By Elliot Jager - Jerusalem Post - March 20, 2005  McQuaid says fair-minded Jews understand that the nature of evangelism is to evangelize. In The Zion Connection he openly writes: "Our commitment to Jesus Christ compels us to make Him known, through the message of the gospel, to all people." At the same time, McQuaid denounces those who spread the faith by "deception" or "emotional manipulation." Elwood McQuaid is a serious, thoughtful man of faith. Jews ought to value his friendship and respect the belief system upon which it is based.

  • Dancing with Abbas
    By Uri Dan - Jerusalem Post - March 23, 2005   There's no point in wasting time on sophisticated analyses. Two trains are on their way: one will test if Abbas can halt the terrorism. The other is the cruel separation planned by Sharon from the Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip.
    Are these two trains running on parallel lines, or are they on a collision course?

  • Israel's Zero-Sum Game
    by Patrick D. O'Brien - March 25, 2005  The world wants Israel to make nice with a hateful people who are inveterate manipulators of the guilty, self-effacing Western psyche. After seeing all of the blown out shells of Jerusalem city buses on T.V., and even after 9/11, people in the free world still can't face the reality that it doesn't matter how much Israel gives. It still won't be enough, because the free world has allowed Palestinian Arabs and Islamic terror groups to make this into a zero-sum game—for Israel. And as long as their hatred and violence are rewarded, why would they change?

  • Why create just one new Mideast state when you can have a few?
    By Gerald A. Honigman - Israelinsider.com - March 25, 2005  It's time that the Africans of southern Sudan gain independence from the Arabs who have butchered, subjugated, and enslaved them over the centuries. It's time for thirty million truly stateless people -- the Kurds -- to finally get their sole state.

  • Israel weaker now than ever, say terrorists
    By Jerusalem Newswire Editorial Staff - www.jnewswire.com - March 25, 2005

    Israel’s plan to retreat from the Gaza Strip and northern Samaria proves unrelenting Islamic terrorism has weakened the Jewish state in a way five full-scale wars failed to do, a senior Hamas official said Thursday.

    "The painful and qualitative blows which the Palestinian resistance dealt to the Jews and their soldiers over the past four-and-a-half years led to the decision to withdraw from the Gaza Strip," Ahmed al-Bahar, a top Hamas leader, was quoted by The Jerusalem Post as saying.

    "The suicide attacks…have taken their tolls on the Jews, both psychologically and economically, in addition to the high number of casualties,” he continued.

    Bahar said Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s “disengagement” plan was a sign Israel had been morally defeated by its Arab Islamic foes.

    “All indications show that since its establishment, Israel has never been in such a state of retreat and weakness as it is today following more than four years of the intifada,” he told reporters.

    “The withdrawal marks the end of the Zionist dream and is a sign of the moral and psychological decline of the Jewish state. We believe that [terrorism] is the only way to pressure the Jews.”

    When Sharon first announced his plan last year, he insisted Israel would retreat from a position of strength and that quitting Gaza would increase security for the nation’s Jewish population.

    Sharon also claimed the disengagement would help Israel to retain sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria.

    But many Israelis fear the Arabs will use the precedent set by the pullout to press their advantage.

    Former Sharon aide Ra’anan Levy wrote last month that Israel was sending the disastrous message that “We are giving the Palestinians what is theirs and we are taking out our own people who settled on Arab territory.”

    Sharon, Levy noted, “will further harm the Jewish claim of historic rights to the land, and he will cement even further the international claim that only Jews moving in one direction, over the rubble of their own homes, can be the foundation for peace.”
