LIFELINE OR HANGING ROPE?

The Knesset has approved the new coalition government of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert by a vote of 65-49 in the 120 Member parliament. In presenting his cabinet, Olmert declared that he would carry out a unilateral pullback to a new defense line on the West Bank, if there were no able Palestinian partner. The new line would include the settlements blocs and Israel would view it as a border until such time that the Palestinians were ready to halt the terrorism, recognize Israel and previous agreements with the Palestinians.

ELECTION BY DEFAULT?

The election campaign has failed to excite the Israeli public with all the opinion polls indicating that acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Kadima party will win big on March 28th. However, not all the experts agree that the polls reflect the real situation and there could be an unexpected last minute swing. Although Olmert has already declared victory, his Kadima colleague Zippy Livni warns about taking the voters for granted.

SHARON STEERS ISRAEL & PALESTINIANS TO HISTORIC CROSSROADS

While Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was making his speech to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, anarchy ruled in the Gaza Strip and in the Philadelfi Corridor between Gaza And Egypt which is now manned by Egyptian soldiers after IDF troops pulled out. The Israeli leader has also made clear that if Hamas runs in the Palestinian elections this January, Israel will not cooperate. Hamas has a declared goal of wiping Israel off the map. Following Sharon's address at the U.N., the new Iranian President Ahmed Ahmadinejad again defied the international body by declaring that Tehran will continue its enrichment of uranium required for producing nuclear weapons. Iran has also threatened to exterminate the Jewish state.

IDF COMPLETES GAZA EVACUATION

The Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip has been completed without hitch. Last month, the settlements were evacuated and now the Israel Defense Forces have pulled out. The Palestinians are now in control. What are the prospects? How did Israel take control of the Gaza Strip thirty-eight years ago? The fact is that Defense Minister Moshe Dayan and IDF Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin planned on bypassing the Strip that was populated by Palestinian refugees, in order to smash the Egyptian tank formations that were threatening Israel from Sinai. It was only after two divisions of Egyptian and Palestinian forces stationed in Gaza started shelling villages in Israel that the IDF was ordered to enter Gaza.

PALESTINIAN SUICIDE BOMBER STRIKES IN BE'ER SHEVA

The Palestinian terror organizations have not waited long after Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and four West bank settlements to renew their attacks. They struck at the central bus station in Be'er Sheva, the 'capital of the Negev' and only the swift and courageous action of two security guards and an alert bus driver averted the massacre of scores of Israelis in the big explosion. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has declared there will be no Roadmap negotiations for a Palestinian state if Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas does not disarm Hamas and the other terrorists who threaten to annihilate Israel.

GAZA WITHDRAWAL - CIRCLING THE WAGONS OR SLIPPERY SLOPE?

The inexorable eviction of the Gaza settlers continues amid heart-rending scenes of IDF soldiers dragging children, women and men from their homes. Most are religious Jews who believe they have also fulfilled an important national mission at the their country's calling and have now been evicted by a Prime Minister who for some reason has changed his mind. Some of these residents and their children have been killed in Palestinian attacks and all have come under the repeated shelling of more than 5,000 Qassam rockets and mortars launched since the outbreak of Palestinian violence in September, 2000.Why has Ariel Sharon changed course so dramatically? What can be expected from Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas who declares he will not confiscate the terrorists' weapons and Hamas that vows to use those arms to attack Israel when the time is ripe? Then there's the U.S. and the rest of the Quartet eager to plunge into the Roadmap process.

THIS WEEK 12.8.05

Just days before Israeli settlers are to be evacuated from the Gaza Strip, Israel was buffeted time and again, by one surprise after another. With tension reaching a fever pitch over the Gaza withdrawal, Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu resigned in protest over the disengagement. Subsequent public opinion polls then showed Netanyahu would topple Sharon in a Likud party election today. Enter U.S. President George W. Bush trying to bolster Sharon and praising his withdrawal plan. While the country is in the throes of the traumatic disengagement, with Sharon sleeping with a loaded pistol under his pillow, Attorney General Manny Mazuz says there is no proof that incitement was responsible for the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin nearly ten years ago.

THIS WEEK 5.8.05

The latest confrontation between opponents to the Gaza withdrawal and Israeli troops and policemen has ended in another stalemate. But as the two sides were facing off near the Gaza Strip, an armed IDF soldier who had gone AWOL (absent without leave), boards a bus from Haifa and opens fire when the vehicle passes through the Arab town of Shfaram. The Israeli terrorist murders four Arabs, two women and two men, and wounds many others; some were in serious condition. The angry Arab crowd attacked the Israeli killer lynching him on the spot. An Israeli police officer says he had first handcuffed the soldier but the mob stormed into the bus and beat the attacker to death. It took massive Israeli reinforcements to extricate the bus with the killer's body inside. Nine Israeli policemen were injured in the fracas. The terrorist was identified as Private Eden Natan-Zada who went AWOL after telling his family he could not serve in an army that expelled Jews from their homes. Israeli leaders, from President Moshe Katzav and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on down, categorically condemned the attack. IDF Chief of Staff General Dan Halutz has ordered a separate military investigation into why the AWOL soldier was not arrested weeks ago and after he had taken up residence in the settlement of Tapuach on the West Bank. Near the Gaza Strip, thousands of Israeli soldiers and policemen again barred withdrawal opponents from linking up with the Jewish settlements. Several hundred protesters did manage to break through the strong security cordons.
