SHARON'S MINOR STROKE

The doctors are speaking optimistically about a full recovery for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon after he was rushed to the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem after apparently losing consciousness. But in the midst of a bitter election campaign, the Israeli public will now be seeking clear-cut answers on the state of Sharon's health, now more crucial than ever after he single-handedly quit the ruling Likud to form the new Kadima party. Public opinion polls have consistently shown Kadima to have all other political parties far behind. However, in light of Sharon's illness, what will the next polls indicate?

BACK TO THE FUTURE

15:42 : A powerful bomb blast rips through the market of Hadera. The unsuspecting group of Israelis never knew what hit them before they were literally blown to smithereens. Twenty-year old Hassan Abu-Zeid, a member of the Islamic Jihad organization had detonated over ten pounds of explosives he was carrying in a satchel. Five people were murdered outright, over thirty others were wounded, some of them critically. In the Gaza Strip, the Islamic Jihad was quick to claim responsibility while Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas again condemned terrorism against Israel, warning that the violence was sabotaging a future Palestinian state. While the terrorists were bombing in Hadera, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for Israel to be wiped off the map.

Yom-Kippur WAR - 'THE WATCHMAN FELL ASLEEP'

Thirty-two years have passed since Egypt and Syria armies caught Israel by surprise on Yom-Kippur, the Day of Atonement and the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. At around two o'clock in the afternoon, while Israelis were at prayer in synagogues across the country, massive Arab forces attacked across the Suez Canal and on the Golan Heights. Outnumbered by ten to one and more, the Egyptian and Syrian troops and tanks overran the sparse Israeli defenders and appeared to threaten the very existence of the Jewish state. Before the IDF recovered and drove back the invading armies, 2,586 Israeli soldiers were killed and thousands more wounded. It was a monumental intelligence failure and the trauma in Israel continues to this very day. What went wrong? Dr Uri Bar-Yosef, a strategic analyst at Haifa University and an IDF Colonel (res.) has conducted an exhaustive study in his book entitled 'The Watchman Fell Asleep' which has recently appeared in English.

By week's end, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and even the Islamic jihad were calling for a return to the former cease-fire.

ISRAEL, EGYPT & IRAN

Middle East expert Dr. Dan Schueftan says Israel is at fault for not pressing Egypt to fulfill its peace treaty commitments with Israel and blocking the smuggling of arms and explosives from Egyptian controlled Sinai into the Gaza Strip. In an interview with David Essing, Schueftan argued that Israel also was mistaken to undermine the Sinai demilitarization by agreeing that seven hundred and fifty Egyptian army soldiers replace Egyptian policemen in the Philadelfi Corridor that separates Sinai from the Gaza Strip. In the first days after the IDF evacuation, the Egyptian troops did not prevent a massive flow of people and apparently weapons to and from the Gaza Strip. As for Iran, Schueftan says in the final analysis the U.S. and not the U.N. will determine whether Tehran acquires nuclear weapons with which it has 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.
