  • Lebanon: The Only Exit Strategy
    By Charles Krauthammer - Jewish World Review - July 19, 2006   There is crisis and there is opportunity. Amid the general wringing of hands over the seemingly endless and escalating Israel-Hezbollah fighting, everyone asks: Where will it end? The answer, blindingly clear, begins with understanding that this crisis represents a rare, perhaps irreproducible, opportunity.

  • The Great U.N. Delusion
    By Jonah Goldberg - TownHall.com - July 21, 2006
     Once again the "international community" is clamoring for the United Nations to fix things in the Middle East. Now, it would be one thing if the U.N. actually, you know, worked. But the problem is that the history of the U.N. is a history of unrelenting failure. Still, despite this rich tapestry of failure and hypocrisy, the international community is once again behaving like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football, pushing for the U.N. to impose order, peace and tranquility.

  • The high price of appeasement
    By Hal Lindsey - WorldNetDaily.com - July 21, 2006  All of this demonstrates the insanity of both the Oslo Accords and the Roadmap to Peace. How can these plans work when the vast majority of Palestinians back both Hamas and Hezbollah? They have proven they don't just want a nation in part of the land. They want all of "Palestine" ethnically cleansed of Jews.

  • Israel’s Moment, the Free World’s Gain
    By Larry Kudlow - NationalReview.com - July 17, 2006  All of us in the free world owe Israel an enormous thank-you for defending freedom, democracy, and security against the Iranian cat’s-paw wholly-owned terrorist subsidiaries Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel is doing the Lord’s work. They are defending their own homeland and very existence, but they are also defending America’s homeland as our frontline democratic ally in the Middle East.

  • An acceptable ceasefire
    By Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - July 21, 2006  The challenge that Israel is now presented with on the battlefield is great. But if Israel stands strong with US support and meets this challenge, it will have the opportunity of striking out in a new strategic direction that holds a realistic possibility of stabilizing the security situation in a manner that enhances the chances of a peaceful future for the region and world as a whole.

  • Signs Israel preparing for larger invasion
    5000 reservists called up – armor convoys heading north

    by Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - July 21, 2006

    As Israel prepared for the start of the Shabbat Friday, signs on the ground were that the IDF is preparing for a larger incursion into Lebanon, one that could possibly turn into an actual invasion of Israel’s northernmost neighbor.

    At around the same time, after a relatively quiet morning in the northern part of the country, at least two waves of rockets smashed into Haifa, Acre, Nahariya, Rosh Pina and other Galilee communities, injuring19 people, two of them seriously.

    Earlier Friday afternoon, the IDF announced it had issued emergency notices calling up 5,000 reservists from the country’s workforce.

    Some troops are expected to go and join with those already engaging Hizb’allah terrorists on the ground. Others will reportedly relieve regular soldiers near the Gaza Strip and in Samaria and Judea, so that they can head for the north.

    Journalists near the Israel-Lebanon border reported a buildup of Israeli armor in the area, with news networks broadcasting images of tank and APC columns lining roads near the frontier.

    Israeli officials have repeatedly expressed reluctance to conduct a major ground offensive in Lebanon. Massive efforts to destroy the Hizb’allah’s rocket-launching capability from the air have not succeeded, however, and since Wednesday the IDF has been carrying out operations inside that territory.

    Fears are being expressed that Hizb’allah wants to draw Israel in and kill as many Israeli soldiers as possible.

    Nonetheless, results of a survey published in the Hebrew-language daily Ma’ariv Friday show that 90 percent of the Israeli public supports their government’s handling of the crisis thus far.

    Reports out of Washington meanwhile indicate that diplomatic efforts to resolve the conflict have slowed to a crawl.

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was scheduled to hold another meeting with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan later on Friday, but commentators said there was no real sense of urgency to move in any decisive direction.

    Suggestions being put forward are that either the Bush administration wants to give Israel an extended open window to achieve its goals against the Hizb’allah, or that it is nervous about trying to negotiate a ceasefire when the chance of successfully doing so is slim.

    In a statement from Beirut Friday afternoon the Hizb’allah leadership rejected a call for a ceasefire made by Annan the day before.

    European diplomats are apparently still trying to get a foothold in, with unconfirmed reports late Friday that British Minister for the Middle East Lord Levy and a German foreign ministry official were heading for the region.
