Olmert, Abbas promise Bush-Rice a gift of the peace agreement before the current US Administration leaves its office.
Abbas cited building in the settlements as the major obstacle to peace. That’s ludicrous: what do a few hundred new houses in Judea and Samaria have to do with rocket attacks from Gaza?
Olmert cited rocket attacks as the major obstacle. If that is true, and Fayad recently announced that Fatah can do nothing about the rocket attacks, how come there will be peace by the year’s end?

Israeli Minister of Infrastructure engaged in saber-rattling, promised to destroy Iran if it attacks Israel. Ben-Eliezer is possibly ignorant that even Iraq, aided by both the United States and the USSR, failed to destroy Iran in the course of a long war.
Just a day ago, Ben-Eliezer squeaked that Israel can do nothing about the Palestinian non-entity and therefore has to agree to its “peace” terms.

At the place where the Public Security Minister Dichter’s aide was wounded by a sniper from Gaza, IDF set an army post meant to dissuade visitors from approaching the area. So IDF puts many Jewish soldiers at risk in the known area of sniper fire from Gaza to show it does something about the Dichter’s assassination attempt.
Europeans fought the World War I over the assassination of their top official by terrorists fighting for their country’s freedom.

A family from Or Yehuda whose infant was admitted into a hospital with brain damage and fractured ribs after being severely beaten, is out in the wild. The father is out on a $900 bail, the mother is under house arrest.
Israeli courts are much less lenient to teen activists who routinely spend months and even years in jail on absurd charges such as “attacking police.”

And several deaths and huge number of casualties in Shderot are not enough to “hit Hamas hard”?

Reagan’s Secretary of Defense was Casper Weinberger, one generation removed from the Jewish heritage his name suggests. Uncomfortable and insecure, Weinberger was known to distance himself as much as possible from both Jews and Israel. In fact some who knew him described Weinberger as both antisemitic and anti-Israel.

It is at least coincidental that, having been turned down for employment by the CIA, that Weinberger’s Naval Intelligence (NI) would have hired Pollard, an openly Zionist Jew. Perhaps more curious is that Pollard was then assigned to the team tasked to supply Israel with intelligence materials mandated under the 1983 Memorandum of Understanding between the two states. Put another way, Pollard was somehow assigned to the precise position allowing him oversight of which intelligence was being passed to Israel, and what was being withheld. Pollard could not fail to appreciate that critical information was being illegally denied Israel in violation of the Memorandum. Which either describes Naval Intelligence as an service completely inept and na´ve, or perhaps some more devious purpose was at play?

In order to avoid an open trial which the government feared might have compromised US intelligence sources and methods the prosecution proposed a plea agreement in which Pollard was assured “leniency in sentencing” in exchange for a closed court hearing. Pollard, whose interest was in helping Israel, not in harming the United States, agreed. Barely twenty minutes before sentencing Weinberger arrived at the judges chambers with his infamous “secret memorandum.” In apparent acquiescence to the defense secretary’s demand Judge Robinson ignored the plea agreement and sentenced Pollard to life without parole. Clearly not satisfied Weinberger addressed the press to denounce Pollard as a traitor. A former Halliburton attorney the defense secretary clearly knew that Pollard’s crime, charge and conviction were not for treason. Pollard, Weinberger was quoted as saying, should have been given a death sentence, not life in prison.

Palestinian factions in Gaza vowed to stop firing rockets at Israel so as not to provoke the impending IDF invasion of Gaza.

Muslim Brotherhood is the largest opposition party in Egypt. Fearing another electoral debacle, Mubarak’s regime banned most of the Muslim Brotherhood candidates from running in the local elections. Muslim Brotherhood calls to boycott the illegitimate elections.
