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.

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.

ISRAEL DECIDES TO COMPLETE THE SECURITY FENCE AROUND JERUSALEM

The London atrocity has again focused on the vital need for international co-operation in the war against Islamic terrorism. In Israel where security is always high, security officials had to be asking themselves if everything possible was being done to prevent a mega-terror attack of the same magnitude from happening here. It's not that Palestinian terrorists have not tried in the past, the concern now is that they may try to imitate the London terrorists. The government decision on the Jerusalem security fence has aroused sharp pro and con reactions. Likud MK Uzi Landau, who opposes Sharon's withdrawal, has accused the Prime Minister of preparing to partition the capital. However Labor MK Beiga Shochat favors the move. Landau and Shochat were interviewed on IBA TV.

ANTI-DISENGAGEMENT BACKFIRE

Opponents to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's disengagement plan stepped up their protest campaign by blocking roads and in the Gaza Strip right wing fanatics clashed with Palestinians nearly 'lynching' a Palestinian youth. There was wall-to-wall condemnation of the Israeli attackers, some were arrested and all were evicted from an unoccupied building they took over called the Palm Beach Hotel. Israelis were also getting fed up with the demonstrators blocking roads with sit-down protests and some drivers took the law into their own hands and clashed with the protesters.

PRESIDENT-ELECT AHMADINEJAD DEEPENS IRANIAN NUCLEAR THREAT

The election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, acting on the orders from Islamic leaders who call for Israel’s extermination, presents an even greater threat to the Jewish state. However, Menashe Amir, a leading Israeli expert on Iran, also says Tehran is threatening Europe & The U.S. as well as targets in the Middle East. The Iranians are determined to continue their drive to acquire nuclear weapons and will start resuming the enrichment of uranium for nuclear weapons, unless deterred by the European Union and the U.S. Moreover, although Iran already has developed a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to many parts of the region, it is also working on an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 10,000 kilometers (over 6,000 miles). Interviewed by David Essing, analyst Amir also foresees the new Iranian President stepping up aid to Hezbollah in south Lebanon and Hamas and particularly the Islamic Jihad in the Palestinian areas.

THIS WEEK – 24.6.05

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice came and went; so did Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. With less than two months to D-day for Israel's disengagement, the Palestinian attacks continue. Two Israelis were killed and the lives of scores of Israelis saved, when a Palestinian suicide bomber was caught on her way to blow up Soroka hospital in Beer-Sheva with ten kilograms of explosives packed inside her underwear. At the Jerusalem summit, Prime Minister Sharon blasted Abbas for not ordering his estimated 30,000 plus security personnel to crack down on the terrorists. Abbas says No Way! He is not strong enough and he will persuade the Palestinians to follow him and not the suicide bombers. Secretary Rice was again showing the U.S. flag, glossing over the terrorism and hoping for accelerated progress on the Roadmap. And Sharon's Likud rival Binyamin Netanyahu is facing mounting pressure to spearhead the campaign against the withdrawal.

SHARON - ABBAS CLASH

After two Israelis were killed by Palestinian attacks, it came as no surprise that terrorism was at the top of the agenda when Israel's Prime Minister Sharon met Palestinian leader Abbas in Jerusalem. Sharon told Abbas the Palestinian attacks during the current lull were intolerable and Israel will not sit idly by while her citizens are being killed and wounded. At the same time, the Prime Minister spoke of new Israeli incentives. For his part, Chairman Abbas explained that he is still weak and needs Israel's help to strengthen his hand'. Although the two sides crossed swords over the issue of terrorism, they did agree to cooperate on several aspects of Israel's upcoming disengagement in the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements.

RICE TALKS PEACE IN JERUSALEM

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has come and gone - mission accomplished. Her job was to keep the ball rolling for Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements starting in the second half of August. In the Gaza Strip, Palestinian terrorists opened fire in the Gaza Strip killing one IDF soldier and wounded two others. It was only one of the daily violations of the current 'lull' in the Palestinian attacks. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to agree on closer Israeli- Palestinian cooperation for Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements starting in mid-August.

Lackluster Race Poses No Real Threat To Prime Minister

Israel's 'opposition-coalition' Labor party is headed into the home stretch for its primaries for party leadership. Labor recently joined Sharon's coalition cabinet with one goal only, to support the Prime Minister's plan to withdraw from the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements against the wish of most of his own Likud party members. Labor rejects nearly every other position taken by Sharon and the Likud. How long will this bizarre state of affairs carry on after this fall's pullout? Sharon may be relying on Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and U.S. President George W. Bush.

THIS WEEK 12-6-05

Is it now official? A senior official of the Palestinian Authority declares the PA will not disarm the Palestinian terror organizations. This is the first clause in the Roadmap peace plan that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon demands must be implemented. The Palestinian shelling in the Gaza Strip again violated the cease-fire killing 3 people and wounding several others this week. The terrorists also launched more Qassam rockets across the border at the Israeli town of Sderot. Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt when one of the rockets smashed through the roof into the living room of an apartment. Israel did not retaliate except for pin point rocketing of terrorists planning more attacks. However, Israel has officially informed Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that no attacks will be tolerated when Israel starts evacuating the Gaza Strip and 4 West Bank settlements starting in August. And the Shabak's super 'spook' Avi Dichter went public after retiring; he rejected the notion that the disengagement will trigger a new Palestinian war of terrorism.

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.

SHARON HOLDS HIS FIRE

THIS WEEK: 3.06.05

Former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe 'Bogey' Yaalon retired this week warning that the Palestinians have not given up their campaign to destroy the Jewish state, one way or the other. In the ruling Likud party, Finance Minister Bibi Netanyahu quoted Yaalon in declaring that he will vote against Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to evacuate the Gaza Strip and 4 settlements in the northern West Bank. In a related development, Israeli security forces foiled an Islamic Jihad plot to send two suicide bombers into Jerusalem. This as Israel released 398 Palestinian security prisoners; they were actually arrested before they could kill or wound any Israelis.
