    A Meaningful Gift!
  • The Image of the Truth
    By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - September 2, 2005  All was known, and yet the image creators and their eager audiences from London to the State Department refused to budge. As the dozens of Israelis murdered became hundreds, and then topped 1,000, with thousands more wounded and maimed, the Palestinians remained the victims, and Israel remained the aggressor. The great challenge of Israel is to meet the false images portrayed by those who cling to their mendacious "narratives" of the Palestinian war against Israel with truthful ones.

  • Divesting Decency
    By Sarah Brodsky - FrontPageMagazine.com - September 8, 2005   Watch out for anti-Israel academics. They tried to boycott Israeli scholars with no success. Their university divestment campaigns have failed. Yet now they can claim a victory – not in any institution of higher education, but in the Anglican Church.

  • Gaza Grows
    by Evelyn Gordon - Jerusalem Post - September 7, 2005  But what Abbas did last week is not so easily dismissed: In an interview published in a major Palestinian daily, Al-Quds, on Saturday, he told the Palestinian public that "the evacuation of the settlers, the settlements and the army from the Strip are steps in the right direction, but it does not mean the end of the occupation. There are lands in eastern and northern Gaza still under occupation.... We need to renegotiate the details and get back to the real border." This statement manages to undermine every major foundation of the peace process at once.

  • How to talk about Gaza
    by Max Singer - Jerusalem Post - September 6, 2005  The Palestinians are actively working to convince the world – including themselves and Israelis – that Israel is giving up the Gaza settlements like a thief finally being forced to drop stolen property. This is a dangerous libel, and Israel is weakening its security and morale by letting it go unchallenged.

  • A Winning Platform
    Ted Belman - IsraelNationalNews.com - September 6, 2005   It is time for Israel to abandon the Roadmap. If the world wants a peace process, let it be the Oslo Accords. I say this because the worst of Oslo was to allow the PLO to return to the territories. This can't be reversed. Oslo, in contrast to the Roadmap, didn't promise a state, let alone a viable or contiguous one. Any commitment we got from the Palestinian Authiority in the Roadmap we already had in Oslo.

  • Landau: Israel is disengaging from Zionism

    By Ryan Jones - Jerusalem Newswire - September 9, 2005

    Senior Likud MK and party platform loyalist Uzi Landau said this week that despite the fact that polls show him to be unelectable, he has no choice but to seek the prime minister's chair in an effort to end government corruption and return Israel to its Zionist roots.

    In an interview published Friday in The Jerusalem Post, Landau said the “disengagement” from Gaza and northern Samaria was not a one-time event, but represented a disengagement from Zionism.

    “The withdrawal from Gaza and northern Samaria...is not merely a geographical pullout, but the beginning of a process of withdrawal from Zionism,” Landau told the Post's Ruthie Blum.

    The phenomenon was a “spiritual withdrawal from Jewish-Zionist values.”

    “An entire culture of educating generations of pioneers to settle the country...is crumbling before our very eyes,” the respected politician lamented.

    A major part of that process had been a concerted effort to demonize the Jewish settlers of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, people who were once regarded as “Zionists at their best.”

    Far from the dens of radicalism the leftist media made them out to be, Landau remembered fondly the former Gaza Jewish communities as “a different Israel, characterized by mutual respect and compassion and living by 'honor thy father and mother.'”

    But in what he could only describe as a mockery of democracy, the Sharon government broke all its election promises, adopted the platform of its defeated left-wing rivals, and destroyed this shining example of Israeli Jewish culture.

    More than that, the “bureaucratic nightmares” and uncertainty Gaza's Jewish refugees are now being made to bear for the sake of “peace” is nothing less than “a human tragedy.”

    Amid these efforts to ostracize once revered pioneers and the destructive effect being had on Israeli society as a whole, Landau felt he must become prime minister and put Israel back on its original path.

    To that end he has joined forces with fellow Likud leadership candidate Binyamin Netanyahu in order to ensure early party primaries this November, where the Likud Central Committee is expected to remove Sharon from his position of power.

    Despite his solid integrity, most Israelis still view Landau as a long shot due to his lack of charisma.

    To that he responds: “Was Harry Truman charismatic? No. Did he have integrity? Yes. Did he not get to be president of the United States?”
