- Sharon's retreat is a victory for terrorists
By Jeff Jacoby - Townhall.com - April 1, 2005 To retreat in the face of terror is to invite more of it, not less. Handing Gaza over to the gangsters of Hamas and the PLO will not leave them ''stewing in their own juices" but celebrating their victory. As they take over the houses, farms, and schools of the people they demonized and terrorized for years, they will draw the obvious conclusion: Violence works, and the Jews are on the run. Wars are not won by retreats, or with fences, or through the ethnic cleansing of Jews. Difficult as the Gaza status quo may be, what is scheduled to take place this summer will prove far worse. Sharon -- the old Sharon -- had it right: Unilateral withdrawal is a prescription for disaster.
- Fate of Greater Israel signed and sealed
By Joel Greenberg - jewishworldreview.com - March 30, 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?
- The Palestine problem
by Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - April 1, 2005 The Palestinian strategy is informed by the belief that Israel is vacating Gaza as a result of Palestinian terror; once all Israeli presence is gone, the main war effort will move to Judea and Samaria, where terror again will force an Israeli retreat.
- Warriors who wish to be peacemakers
By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach - WorldNetDaily.com - March 28, 2005 King David was not allowed to build God's temple because he was a man of war. It was left for his son Solomon, who would enjoy peace. Ariel Sharon's tragic miscalculation is to confuse the two roles. While one's enemies are still armed with evil intent, one must forever remain a David.
- The last laugh
By Tamar Yonah - Israelinsider.com - March 28, 2005 May we have the courage and faith to leave our comfort zones and go out to protect our land and hold strong to it. May our leaders be blessed with wisdom and strength to stop a needless surrender. May they stand up to outside foreign interests that remove our sovereignty over our land and endanger the Jewish nation. And most of all, may we all learn to fear only G-d, not man.
- Abbas: "Hamas and Jihad are my brethren"
By Jerusalem Newswire Editorial Staff - www.jnewswire.com - April 1, 2005
Far from being enemies of peace and cold-blooded murderers of men, women and children, PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas said the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist organizations were his brethren.
“We're continually in contact with our brethren in the Jihad movement and the Islamic resistance movement [Hamas], along with other [terror groups]," Abbas told reporters Sunday following a meeting of the PLO’s executive committee in Gaza City.
Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad were invited to attend the meeting. Hamas declined, but Islamic Jihad leader Mohammed Al-Hindi was in attendance.
Over the past week, Abbas has increased efforts to convince Hamas and Islamic Jihad to officially join the PLO in order to deflect pressure to dismantle the groups.
Under the terms of the Oslo Accords and Road Map peace plans, the PLO/PA is obligated to disarm and dismantle all terrorist organizations operating out of territories under its control.
Despite Hamas’s failure to participate in Sunday’s meeting, the group’s Damascus-based leader, Khaled Mashal, said Wednesday he had come to an understanding with Abbas.
In an interview with the Egyptian newspaper Al Aram , Mashal said he and Abbas had struck a deal on the future control of the Gaza Strip following Israel’s planned withdrawal, Israel Radio reported.
PA officials Tuesday confirmed a report that Abbas had agreed to consult Hamas on the fate of abandoned Jewish settlements in Gaza.
Later that day, Hamas announced its tentative decision to officially join the PLO, pending the resolution of differences with Abbas’s Fatah faction.
