  • Wiesenthal's war
    Jerusalem Post - September 20, 2005  Simon Wiesenthal's death is not just the Jewish people's loss. He should be sincerely mourned by the entire civilized world – by anyone still dedicated to justice, unafraid to acknowledge humanity's dark past and determined to learn its lessons. Wiesenthal's war against Nazism must be continued through the fight against Holocaust-denial or belittlement, and against the anti-Semitic onslaught on the Jewish state.

  • Betrayal at the UN
    By Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - September 16, 2005  In an internationally broadcast event Thursday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon took the podium at the United Nations, spelled his nation's right of absolute ownership to the Land of Israel, then told the whole world that he was ready to forever relinquish parts of the ancient Jewish patrimony for the creation of a Palestinian state.

  • What a web these Arabs weave
    By Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - September 23, 2005  Permit me to make a prediction (if not a prophecy): Hamas will participate in the elections, and Sharon’s strong rejection of its involvement will come to nothing. We are about to witness the latest devilish example of brilliantly prosecuted “Palestinian” stagecraft – the secret behind the PLO’s success. This is how it will happen.

  • Arik's talking points
    By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - September 19, 2005  For Sharon's campaign advisers, opposing Hamas's participation in the elections is an easy way to hide from Likud voters the fact that Sharon's entire policy is based on appeasing terrorists. And look at what its implementation in Gaza has brought us. In the space of one week Gaza has been transformed into the largest, best-armed and best-financed terror base in the world.

  • Verbatim: Ariel Sharon's UN speech
    Jerusalem Post - September 18, 2005  THE JEWISH people have a long memory. We remember events which took place thousands of years ago, and certainly remember events which took place in this hall during the last 60 years. The Jewish people remember the dramatic vote in the UN Assembly on Nov. 29, 1947, when representatives of the nations recognized our right to national revival in our historic homeland. However, we also remember dozens of harsh and unjust decisions made by the United Nations over the years. And we know that, even today, there are those who sit here as representatives of a country whose leadership calls for wiping Israel off the face of the earth. And no one speaks out.

  • Fort Apache: The Gaza Strip
    By Hal Lindsey - WorldNetDaily.com - September 22, 2005   If there are indeed Palestinian leaders who want peace, they have no chance of success without stopping the swelling ranks of Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, al-Fatah, al-Qaida and the others. And I believe they are far too weak to do that. Instead, President Abbas has invited them to join his government. Now, Hamas – and those intent upon using every meter of land turned over to them as a staging ground for the final annihilation of Israel – are free to set up shop with impunity in Israel's own back yard. All of these factors should indicate to any fair-minded person that further peace negotiations are futile. For Israel to give over of the West Bank under the present conditions would be an act of national suicide.

  • The Perpetual Occupier

    By Ryan Jones - Jerusalem Newswire - September 23, 2005

    Even before Israel controlled Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha), it was denounced as an occupier by the Arab world, which tried everything from conventional warfare to terrorism to dislodge the Jews from the Middle East.

    Diplomacy was not yet an option, as most of the West, the driving force behind today's land-for-peace process, still viewed Israel as a valuable and loyal ally in the fight against the Arabs' benefactor – the Soviet Union.

    But after 19 years, the West's infatuation with Israel waned, awe over its military exploits turned to criticism, and in 1967 the Arabs found Yesha a convenient bone of contention.

    If only Israel would give up Yesha for the creation of another Arab Muslim state there would be peace, went the new line.

    This month, Israel met part of that demand, surrendering the Gaza Strip, a more than adequate test ground for determining the true intentions of the Arabs – peaceful coexistence with Israel, or perpetual conflict until Israel's ultimate demise.

    Without missing a beat, the “Palestinians,” instead of getting to work on creating a stable self-governed and prosperous society in Gaza, found a new excuse for not choosing the path of peace – Gaza's borders.

    Israel's audacity in insisting on guarding and controlling the flow of traffic through its border with Gaza means the strip is still occupied, declared senior PLO official Saeb Erekat.

    Never mind the fact that the “Palestinians” want Gaza to be part of a sovereign and independent state, and that borders between sovereign independent states are not free passage zones.

    Erekat points to Israel's intention to “undermine the territorial unity” of the geographically separated Gaza Strip and “West Bank” by not sacrificing its own sovereignty in the Negev as reason to prolong the conflict.

    No peace without full surrender.

    Furthermore, citing an obscure portion of the 1950 Nuremburg Tribunal, the PA asserts Israel is still occupying Gaza by virtue of its ability to militarily strike at enemy forces based in the strip.

    What exactly the “Palestinians” are demanding of Israel here is unclear.

    It is a simple fact that Israel has the military capability to attack targets within Gaza. Nothing short of dismantling the IDF will change that.

    If Israel was threatening to use that military capability to adversely effect the local Arab economy or interfere politically, then the “Palestinians” would have a case.

    But at present they have nothing more to complain about than Israel's threat to respond militarily to efforts emanating from Gaza to murder Israeli civilians – a right each and every nation on earth guards. That the threat must be vocalized at all is a result of the PA's longstanding failure to curb “Palestinian” terrorism against Israel's Jews.

    This is all tantamount to Mexico claiming it is occupied by the United States because its citizens are not free to enter the US at will and the American military is capable of invading Mexican territory and striking targets there.

    What the PA has done is create a platform from which it can perpetually accuse Israel of being an occupier, even after the establishment of a recognized “Palestinian” state, and thus justify or deflect attention away from its own noncompliance.
