INTIFADA #3 OR NOT?

Former Shabak Security Chief Avi Dichter rejects the assessment of former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Yaalon that the Palestinians are likely to launch a new war of terrorism after Israel implements a withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and 4 settlements in West Bank this fall. In interviews with Israeli newspapers, Dichter says the Palestinians realize that after murdering 1042 Israelis during the past four and a half years, they have achieved nothing and have actually been losing the confrontation. The former security chief warned that Israeli extremists now realize that the Prime Minister is bound on carrying out the disengagement and would assassinate Sharon if given the chance. Dichter also reveals how the 'targeted killing' of terrorist leaders has been so effective in combating Palestinian terrorism.

REACTIONS TO GEN. Yaalon'S WARNING

Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz became the IDF's new Chief of Staff today - outgoing commander Gen. Moshe Yaalon bowed out with a grave warning of new Palestinian terrorism. Yaalon told the Israeli daily Haaretz that the Palestinians will launch a new war of terrorism if they do not get their way after Israel's upcoming evacuation of the Gaza Strip and 4 settlements in northern Samaria. Reacting to the assessment, Deputy Premier Ehud Olmert warned if the Palestinians do renew the violence, Israel would hit back hard. In light of the grim outlook of Israel's intelligence community it now appears likely that the cabinet will instruct the IDF to remain deployed in northern Samaria to prevent terror attacks on the metropolitan area of Tel Aviv.

MIDDLE EAST TSUNAMI

Palestinian terror attacks have dropped, but the Jewish terror threats have soared over the controversial disengagement issue. That was the message from the country's top security officials Shabak security chief Avi Dichter, IDF Chief of Staff designate Dan Halutz, and police commissioner Moshe Karadie in a briefing to cabinet ministers. In the bigger picture, analyst David Essing is of the view that the disengagement question may now have been internationalized as part of US president George W. Bush's new multilateral approach to coping with Middle East flashpoints.

THIS WEEK - 18.02.05

After the historic Knesset vote on disengagement, Sharon officials believe the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements is now a done deal. The 59-40 vote poured cold water on the campaign by withdrawal opponents for a national referendum, not that they won't l keep trying. Even the vote count is misleading; the number of hard core MKs against the evacuation is even less than 40 in the 120 member Knesset. The MK breakdown: Likud rebels - 17, National Union - 6, National Religious - 6 for a grand total of 29. Sharon sources say: 'Forget about the 11 Shasniks, the ultra-orthodox party will not oppose the withdrawal if it gets what it wants on child allowances.' This 30% is also said to reflect Israeli public opinion after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas started halting the terrorism.
