ILLUSIONS and DELUSIONS
Israelis are expendable!
Israel's Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres, is quoted as saying in an interview broadcast on Palestinian television, November 23rd that "If there are only two or three shooting incidents a day, Israel would not bring it up with the Palestinians on condition that the Palestinian Authority make 100% effort to prevent such incidents."
(IsraelNN.com) Foreign Minister Shimon Peres a short time ago submitted his resignation from the government to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
Sarid: Shas is Number One Enemy of Jewish
(IsraelNN.com) MK Avigdor Lieberman, head of the National Union-Yisrael Beitenu joint faction, said today that he who supports the transfer of Jews, and capitulation to terrorism, ought to be the mayor of Jenin, not the Prime Minister of Israel! Lieberman made the statement regarding Labor party chairman Amram Mitzna, who has called for a unilateral Israeli withdrawal from Judea, Samaria and Gaza, along with the dismantling and transfer of the Jewish communities there.
(IsraelNN.com) - Army Radio reported this evening that while MK Ran Cohen (Meretz) is against the killing of Israelis, the presence of settlers in Hebron is the underlying reason for last night's massacre.
MK Yossi Sarid (Meretz) said earlier that although they are "disgusting," the Jewish residents of Hevron don't deserve to be killed.
Opposition Leader: "I Am An Idiot and Will Remain An Idiot"
(IsraelNN.com) Upon hearing of the agreement that saved the national unity coalition government and enlisted the necessary support for the 2003 budget, opposition leader MK (Meretz) Yossi Sarid commented, "I am an idiot and will remain an idiot", adding in his words "for once, I really believed that Labor would leave the coalition and do the right thing." When asked about the responsibility to support the budget to salvage Israel's image in the international fiscal community, Sarid added that the responsible thing to do is to oppose the budget that does nothing to alleviate unemployment and poverty.
In June 1982, my army unit entered Lebanon on the first day
of the invasion. My superior officers included Dan Shomron, Ehud Barak and
Amram Mitzneh. I fought in the central axis, the only front of three which
Worse, we suffered horrendous losses for no apparent reason. The biggest fiasco of the whole war occurred when Colonel Ehud Barak ordered a religious armored division into a Syrian ambush in a valley called Sultan Yakub. Twenty three soldiers were killed in the ambush and another five captured and later murdered. Barak's leading role in the fiasco was covered up until this day and the five captured soldiers were deliberately neglected as part of this cover-up.
And while my axis was being slaughtered, Col. Amram Mitzneh informed
Defence Minister Ariel Sharon that he refused to lead his troops into battle. Faced with an immediate threat of being fired, he reneged on his
declaration. But the central axis continued to miss its assigned targets
Five years later, the intifada broke out and who did Defence Minister
Rabin assign to squelch it but the worst officers of the Lebanon War; Ehud
Barak, Dan Shomron and Amram Mitzneh? They not only failed to put it down,
it seemed they were deliberately fanning it. Last week, journalist Uri Dan wrote a piece exposing Mitzneh's role in
the Lebanon War and he made a frightening implication: perhaps Mitzneh was
Frightened by the success of the Begin/Sharon Lebanese policy, terrified by the likelihood that it would lead to a peace treaty with a stable Christian government, Shimon Peres and Yossi Sarid began an expensive anti-war campaign in the US, working hand in hand with the CFR's Sandy Berger. They turned American opinion against Begin and Sharon, destroyed Christian Lebanon, strengthened the Syrian enemy and assured the death of 500 more Israeli soldiers in Lebanon.
It took the CFR another decade before they financed the bumbling Barak into the Prime Minister's Office but it was worth the trouble. Practically his first act in power was to unilaterally pull out of Southern Lebanon, leaving Israel's Christian allies to run for their lives or face torture.
