    A Meaningful Gift!
  • Spare us the lectures
    Jerusalem Post - October 27, 2005  All those who once again revert to the language and logic of the "cycle of violence" should remember that if the Palestinians truly abandon and combat terrorism, Israel will gladly end its efforts to do so. The reverse is demonstrably not true: Israeli restraint does not automatically lead to an end to attacks but, absent Palestinian will to crush terrorism, to a gift of time for the terrorists to recover and regroup.

  • The good terrorists
    By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - October 28, 2005  IN THE aftermath of the bombing in Hadera, and in the face of the integration of Fatah and Islamic terror groups, Abbas's continued collusion with terrorists, Russia's uncoordinated deployment in Gaza, and the unraveling of the fence as a defensive strategy, what did the government do on Wednesday night? It declared "war" on the Islamic Jihad.

  • What does Israel need to do?
    By Joseph Farah - WorldNetDaily.com - October 27, 2005  The No. 1 lesson is simple: Appeasement never works. Unilateral withdrawals in the face of terrorist aggression are a recipe for more terrorist aggression. Israel should have learned this lesson from previous evacuations of military forces that served to protect its civilian population. It should have learned this lesson from previous unilateral withdrawals of civilians on territory in won in hard-fought combat. It should have learned by now that no goodwill gesture by civilized people will ever go unpunished by the Islamo-fascists who perceive such moves as evidence of weakness and capitulation. Can someone name just one objective Israel has achieved in all the years of this misguided "peace process"?

  • It was NOT Retaliation
    JINSA Report #526 - October 27, 2005  The bombing was not retaliation for the killing of Luay Sa’adi on Sunday. Experts in Israel have described the process by which suicide bombings are planned - the selection of a target and a bomber, the guide for the bomber, the car, moving the explosives into place, the trial runs, the escape plan for the guide, etc. It takes a minimum of two to three weeks to put it together.

  • Iran Calls for a New Holocaust
    By Robert Spencer - FrontPageMagazine.com - October 28, 2005  The same day that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared at a conference in Tehran entitled “The World without Zionism” that Israel should be destroyed, an Islamic Jihad suicide attacker murdered at least five people in the Israeli city of Hadera. No doubt Ahmadinejad had this kind of thing in mind when he stated that “there is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world”: if he condemns attacks against civilian non-combatants, he has kept it to himself. Ahmadinejad also made it clear that, like Hamas, he did not view the Palestinian conflict with Israel as one of nationalism, but of religion: “Anybody who recognizes Israel,” he warned, “will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury, any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world.”

  • What has 'disengagement' bought?

    By Ryan Jones - Jerusalem Newswire - October 27, 2005

    At first it was touted as a means to freeze the headlong rush to birth a Palestinian Arab state that would certainly endanger Israel's security and even existence.

    When it became clear the West would never allow Israel's “disengagement” from Gaza and northern Samaria to serve such a purpose, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon promised Israelis a package of other long-sought benefits they would certainly reap by quitting those areas of their biblical homeland.

    American support for the annexation of more strategically important parts of Judea and Samaria, a major decrease in “Palestinian” terror, a freer hand to war against those terrorists who did continue to attack, and the heading off of an internationally imposed solution were all placed on the table as rewards for surrendering parcels of land the Sharon government insisted were undesirable anyway.

    A full month has passed since the last IDF soldier left Gaza and the area reverted to full Arab control.

    And yet, those benefits have not even begun to be realized. In fact, the opposite of what Israelis were promised is happening.

    Washington has not come out in support of Israel's perpetual retention of large settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria (which in America's view includes eastern Jerusalem), but has rather publicly criticized and condemned the construction of every new Jewish apartment and home in those areas.

    Successful “Palestinian” terror attacks – including shootings, “suicide” bombings and artillery bombardments – are actually increasing for the first time in two years.

    Security officials report that terrorist efforts to transfer personnel and weapons from Gaza to Judea and Samaria and perpetrate attacks from there are accelerating at a tremendous rate.

    Israel's ability to combat this terrorist phenomenon with the kind of force needed to end it has not increased, even after unprecedented rocket barrages. Instead, Israel's hands are more tied than ever as a direct result of its withdrawal from Gaza and northern Samaria.

    Washington insists that pullout started fresh momentum towards a final peace settlement, and will not countenance Israel jeopardizing the timetable by unleashing any kind of serious military action to defend its citizens.

    Recent statements of understanding for Israel's right to defend itself have without fail been accompanied by demands that Israel consider the consequences of its actions and practice unheard of restraint.

    As for international efforts to impose the outlines of a final peace upon Israel, the disengagement has anything but halted those.

    That became apparent even as the last troops left Gaza, an action Israel insisted it was implementing unilaterally and on its own terms.

    Just one month later, Israel has been bullied into accepting the international community's position on freedom of passage through Gaza's borders.

    No Israeli will directly monitor the Gaza-Sinai border – the primary gateway for “Palestinian” terrorist arms – and Palestinian Arabs will begin traveling between Gaza and Judea even before adequately proving they will not use that freedom of movement to perpetrate additional acts of terrorist aggression.

    And already there are among international power brokers voices of support for the PLO claim that Israel's gesture of peace is incomplete without an accompanying withdrawal from Judea and Samaria.

    The Gaza retreat resulted in a wave of optimism that a final peace agreement and the birth of Palestine are just around the corner.

    With the international community fully aware that the Arabs are not willing to compromise, and armed with new proof that Israel can in fact be made to surrender, guess who is going to have the other's terms imposed upon them for the sake of achieving that “peace”?

    For those willing to see reality, none of this comes as a surprise.

    The question now is will all of this serve as the wake up call Israel needs to finally realize it can never satisfy the Arab world or the international community but through its complete surrender and demise?

    Or will Israelis continue to pay in blood for the shortsightedness and naïveté of their leaders?
