SHARON CALLS ON KNESSET TO APPROVE EGYPTIAN TROOPS ON GAZA BORDER

After facing sharp criticism and a petition to Israel's Supreme Court, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has agreed that Knesset will vote on his proposal to allow 750 Egyptian soldiers to patrol along the Gaza Strip border after an IDF withdrawal. Opponents to the idea had earlier petitioned the Supreme Court for a ruling on whether the Knesset vote was necessary. Making his first appearance as IDF Chief of Staff before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, General Dan Halutz said the military are now prepared to carry out the evacuation of some 9,000 settlers from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements. However, the Chief of Staff clashed with several MKs who oppose the controversial withdrawal.

PRESIDENT ABBAS ENTERS "LION'S DEN"

Newly elected Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, or Abu Mazen, is about to call on the fanatic Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations in the Gaza Strip to call off their attacks on Israel.

His security forces were said to be taking up position in the areas of Gaza used by the terrorists to launch Qassam rockets and mortars. However, on the ground there has been little change in the Palestinian shelling. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon traveled to the Erez Crossing to Gaza to meet top IDF commanders.

Israeli left and right wing Knesset members are split about the new leader’s real intentions.
