- Showdown with Hamas
Jerusalem Post - June 30, 2006
As Israelis agonize over endangering innocent Palestinians while killing terrorists, the murder of Eliahu Asheri reminds us that, to Palestinian terrorists, there is no such thing as an innocent Israeli. An 18-year-old Israeli boy, hitchhiking by the side of the road, can be summarily kidnapped and executed, and this is dubbed a legitimate act of "resistance."
- Israel's rude awakening
By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - June 27, 2006 Sunday's attack and Cpl. Shalit's kidnapping are watershed events. In the coming days and weeks, it will become self-evident to the Israeli public as a whole just how indefensible Olmert's plan to empower terrorists actually is. Yet public recognition of his plan's failure is not enough. In 2000, the public realized that Barak's terrorist empowering peace plan had brought us war. Yet rather than discard the policy of empowering terrorists, our political leaders simply repackaged it. What had formerly been called "peace" was called "separation" and "disengagement" and now is called "convergence" or "realignment." These euphemisms are sold to the public in turn as new quick-fixes that spare us the need to recognize the reality of war.
- On the Strip: Where To Go from Gaza?"
By Daniel Pipes - National Review Online - June 29, 2006 Arafat's assurances were fraudulent and the Arab effort to eliminate Israel remains very much in place. Israel, with U.S. support, must defeat this foul ambition. That implies inflicting a sense of defeat on the Palestinians, and winning their resignation to the permanent existence of a Jewish state in the Holy Land. Only then will the violence end.
- Fatal Moment for Palestinians
By Judy Lash Balint - FrontPageMagazine.com - June 29, 2006 the manner in which Hamas leadership deals with the kidnap situation will reveal whether there’s a future for real Palestinian governance or if the territories under Palestinian control will descend into further chaos and anarchy, ringing the death knell both for themselves and as future negotiating partners for Israel.
- Olmert doesn't get it
By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - June 30, 2006 Olmert, like Barak was brought to power as the head of leftist coalition. If Olmert loses that support base, his government could easily fall. In light of this, and given the fact that through his actions and inactions Olmert has made clear that he remains unwilling to reconsider his policy of surrendering Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem to terrorists, it is hard to imagine that his decision to approve the IDF's operations in Gaza and the arrest of Hamas leaders will have any ameliorative effect on Israel's security situation. In short, the limited nature of this week's IDF operations makes clear that Olmert still refuses to get it.
- Taken hostage
By Yossi Klein Halevi - Jewish World Review - June 29, 2006 The military invasion of Gaza that began last night, and whose purpose is to surround the area where Gilad is presumably being held, must only be the first step. A brief invasion, a "show of force," is hardly adequate. Instead, Israel needs to resume its policy of systematically targeting Hamas leaders, just as it did several years ago, culminating in the assassination of Sheik Yassin. That policy drove most of Hamas deep underground and led to the cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

- Abbas’ Fatah murders Jewish teen
For days they pretended he was still alive
by Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - June 29, 2006
Members of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction of the PLO kidnapped an 18-year-old Jewish boy Sunday night, shot him in the head and buried him near Ramallah.
Eliyahu Asheri was one of two Jewish teenagers abducted by Arabs in recent days. The second, Corporal Gilad Shalit, is believed to be alive and being held in the Gaza Strip.
The slender body of Asheri, whose smiling face was shown on Israeli media since he went missing last Sunday, was found in the early hours of Thursday morning.
IDF troops were led to his shallow grave by an arrested terrorist from the so-called Popular Resistance Committees (PRC).
The PRC is the newest of many satellite terrorist groups formed by senior “Palestinian” officials over the years to create deniability distance between the PA itself and the murders it orchestrates.
Israeli forensic specialists determined that Asheri was killed by a bullet fired into his skull shortly after he was kidnapped on Sunday evening.
After disposing of his body, the PRC conducted a cruel campaign of deception and torture, playing with the emotions of the missing boy’s family and the Israeli people.
Three days after killing him, and driven by the anti-Jewish hatred that saturates their society, his murderers released a video to the press showing proof that they had taken Asheri. They threatened to “butcher” him on camera if the IDF did not leave Gaza.
It was only after Israeli forces, acting on intelligence information, surrounded a PRC member’s house in Ramallah and took the terrorist into custody that the breakthrough came.
The finding of Asheri’s body was widely reported, though the fact that the “Palestinians” had continued to pretend they were holding him alive in order to obtain Israeli concessions was not.
