- Bush's Road Map Goes Nowhere
David Singer - IsraelNationalNews.com - April 28, 2005 30 April 2005 marks the second anniversary of the launching of the Road Map to resolve the Israeli-Arab conflict. This performance-based and goal-driven plan is yet to get off the ground despite its sponsorship by President George Bush in June 2002, and its endorsement by Russia, the European Union and the United Nations, in ministerial statements made on 16 July and 17 September 2002. The detailed plan, with its clear phases, timelines, target dates and benchmarks, was finally unveiled on 30 April 2003 by this powerhouse group, calling itself the Quartet. All of them must now be feeling decidedly queasy at their impotence in getting the plan up and running.
- Palestinian election nightmare
By Barry Rubin - Jerusalem Post - April 25, 2005 The Palestinian election due to be held in 10 weeks will be of extraordinary importance. But it may well be a disaster – extreme even for that people's catastrophe-ridden history. The election will set the framework in which the Palestinian Authority enters serious negotiations with Israel for a comprehensive settlement of the conflict. Five years ago the Palestinian leadership rejected a chance for both peace and a Palestinian state and instead plunged the area into four years of bloody, terrorist war. What happens if the Palestinians throw away this opportunity as well?
- Britain: A dying lion that can still do harm
by Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - April 25, 2005 Mainly due to Britain's relationship with the US, Israelis have a tendency to view it as an ally. But the situation on the ground in Britain must force us to reconsider this friendly view. Today Britain manifests the symptoms of a suicidal society. Its elites have been taken over by far-left bigots who, while purporting to care for the downtrodden, work to perpetuate a situation where the Arab world is wholly controlled by brutes who call for the destruction not only of Israel, but of Britain itself.
- How will Israel speak?
by Caroline Glick - Jerusalem Post - April 29, 2005 In the meantime, the Palestinians, election or no election, are preparing for the next round of war, which they plan to open in September, immediately after Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to expel all Israeli citizens from their homes in Gaza and northern Samaria is completed.
- The forgotten Rachels
by Tom Gross - Jerusalem Post - April 25, 2005 My Name Is Rachel Thaler is not the title of a play likely to be produced anytime soon in London. Thaler, aged 16, was blown up at a pizzeria in an Israeli shopping mall. She died after an 11-day struggle for life following the February 16, 2002 attack when a suicide bomber approached a crowd of teenagers and blew himself up.
- How would Americans react to terror?
by Dennis Prager - Townhall.com - April 25, 2005 During the worst of the Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis, I visited Israel and made a documentary ("Israel in a Time of Terror") about how Israelis regarded and lived with the murdering of their fellow men, women and children. I will forever regard the Israelis of that period as achieving a rare level of national greatness: They were able to go on living normal lives, returning the next day to the same cafes bombed the day before, riding on the same bus line that the day before had its passengers blown up, blinded, maimed and brain damaged. While making the documentary, I often wondered how we Americans would react if such terror came to our restaurants, malls and buses.
- Sharon violating Israel’s covenant with God
By Jerusalem Newswire Editorial Staff - www.jnewswire.com - April 28, 2005
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is, with his plan to uproot the Jews of Gaza and northern Samaria, violating a divine covenant whereby the Almighty deeded the entire land of Israel to the Jewish people as an eternal possession.
So said Knesset member Benny Elon (National Union) Wednesday in a speech to more than 50,000 anti-disengagement activists during a rally in southern Gaza.
Sharon’s treachery goes beyond violating God’s Word, however, and is directly endangering the lives of millions of Israelis, Elon charged.
"Sharon is committing two crimes," the MK emphatically stated, "he is violating a covenant that God gave us as an eternal heritage and he is endangering lives by the very creation of a terrorist state."
But “even when the knife is on our chest, it does not prevent us from praying and asking for [divine] mercy,” Arutz 7 quoted Elon as saying.
“Every one of us must act with determination and dedication to save the nation from suicide and from this satanic plan.”
MK Aryeh Eldad echoed his National Union colleague’s call to action, and urged the throngs to engage in civil disobedience in defense of their homeland.
“An historic injustice is on our shoulders. We are fighting for our homes,” Eldad said. “If [Sharon] closes Gush Katif, no one will travel in Israel. We will stop the country. No one will fly, no one will travel and no one will walk if Jews are not allowed to live in every place in the Land of Israel.”
Leftists elements of Sharon’s government later called on the Attorney General to prosecute Eldad for incitement.
Eldad later defended his statements, noting he had not called for violence.
He pointed out that “there are some racist laws which it is a moral obligation to break,” comparing the government’s decision to uproot Jews to the American segregation laws of the past century, according to The Jerusalem Post .
Such laws were defeated in the United States by the same kind of non-violent civil disobedience Eldad called for Wednesday.
Far from the sedition left-wingers accuse them of, opponents of Sharon’s plan are working to save the Jewish state, MK Effi Eitam told Army Radio Thursday morning.
