The following opinion (a well-informed one) appeared in Mar. 16 edition of The Jerusalem Post.

I agree with what Katz says here.

Given that, it seems likely to me that the so-called 'peace process' going on now will weaken Israel and promote further violent attacks against Jewish existence in the Middle East.

We will see.

A PALESTINIAN STATE WILL NOT BRING PEACE
BY SHMUEL KATZ, THE JERUSALEM POST

Mar. 16, 2005

At my age, I can't help but insist that people learn their history before they tell us how to "solve" the Arab-Israel conflict. President George W. Bush's vision of "two states living side by side in peace" sounds nice – until it is subjected to a scrutiny of its factual components. The prophet Isaiah also had a vision of peace, about 3,000 years ago. It was a vision of the wolf dwelling with the lamb. He did not, however, suggest it as a practical policy.

Two salient facts relating to the perennial Arab hostility toward the Jewish people have been consistently ignored by "quick-fixers," including Jewish leaders and international policy makers. One is to grasp the extent of the deep antipathy Arabs have toward Jews.  More >


 Free Lebanon?1 comment

I see that Hezballa, G-d's own party in Lebanon (*warning -- irony displayed here), has held a huge rally in Beirut with an estimated 1/2 million people. Hmmm? They couldn't have had any help from Syria and Iran for this display. Nah!

With the support of Syrian troops still in Lebanon and the Syrian and Iranian governments, Hezballa forces have their own militias and are not going to voluntarily give up their weapons and stand down.

They're already working to terrorize Lebanese Christians, Druse and others who might have other ideas.

Which means that talk about a free Lebanon anytime soon without a terrific struggle seems like a load of B.S. served warm.
