THIS WEEK (Dec. 19 2004)

After a week or so of wrangling, the ruling Likud party and Labor from the opposition have apparently wrapped up a new national unity government to carry out a withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements. However, at the same time that Sharon was building a cabinet to approve the evacuation, the Palestinian terrorists were escalating their attacks. The IDF hit back, launching an operation into the Khan Yunis area. Despite the Palestinian escalation, Prime Minister Sharon called on the Palestinians to take advantage of the ‘great opportunity’ for peace after the death of Yasser Arafat. U.S. President George Bush repeated that Israeli-Palestinian peace was at the top of his agenda; however, Syria’s President Bashar Assad would have to get in the waiting line.

SHARON - THE MORNING AFTER

After his decisive victory at the Likud convention, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon lost no time in inviting Labor, Shas and United Torah Judaism to join a new government coalition. The dramatic vote reversed an earlier decision three months ago, giving Sharon a 62-38% win. Although Likud cabinet minister Ehud Olmert says the inclusion of Labor will mean the Gaza withdrawal is now ‘in the bag’, MK Zvi Hendel of the National Union warns that Sharon’s brutal withdrawal tactics may trigger a civil war. David Essing has this analysis of what is being as an historic milestone in the country’s history:

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has won back his Likud party and apparently a new coalition. The door is now wide open, for Sharon to carry out a unilateral Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and four West Bank settlements.

LIKUD 'REBELS' DEFEAT SHARON

Likud ‘rebels’, opposed to Prime Minister Sharon’s plan to evacuate the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements, have handed Sharon an embarrassing defeat in the Knesset. They abstained when the House took a vote on the Prime Minister’s policy statement on the disengagement which resulted in a 53-44 defeat. However, the rebels then voted with Sharon against a no- confidence vote by Labor which was defeated 60-52.Opening day of the winter Knesset session found the Prime Minister pitted against opponents in his Likud party over the withdrawal issue.

Who blinks first? Prime minister Ariel Sharon bent on implementing the withdrawal or the fifteen or so Likud rebels who oppose it? They squared off at the opening of the new winter session of the Knesset.

DAMASCUS ASSASSINATION SHARON & OLMERT BLAST TERRORISTS

At Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl military cemetery, the annual memorial service was held for the 2,689 IDF soldiers who fell in the Yom-Kippur War of October 1973. However, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon canceled his participation because of the extremely tight security precautions after threats, apparently from opponents to his withdrawal plans. As a rule, Israel never comments on the killing of terrorists abroad, however both Sharon and Deputy Premier Ehud Olmert were talking about the need to hit the terrorists, when a leading Palestinian terrorist was assassinated in Damascus.
