The Iraqi Die Was Cast

Makor Rishon Weekly, September 27, 2002

The die was cast, and the US war on Saddam's regime has been set in motion.  The transfer of the Central Command from Florida to the Gulf area, the completion of US military installations in Qatar and Northern Iraq (no-fly zone) suggest determination rather than indecisiveness. The lease, by the Pentagon, of Danish boats, specializing in the transport of tanks and armed personnel carriers indicate intent to employ ground forces, rather than just air force and navy bombings.  Accompanied by joint exercises between the US Marines and the Jordanian military not far from the Iraqi border, such developments send a lucid signal of purpose to destroy the Saddam regime.

Does Israel's defiance of White House pressure undermine US-Israel relations, and are the bilateral relations advanced by Israeli submission to US pressure?

The Demographic Threat - Myth and Reality

Yedioth Achronot, June 20, 2002

The demographic threat- to the survival of the Jewish State – is real.  However, it has been frequently accorded mythical dimensions, in an attempt to scare the Israeli public and policy-makers into sweeping and reckless concessions, back to the 1949 lines.

Hawkish Washington Welcomes Prime Minister Sharon

Makor Rishon Weekly, May 31, 2002 CIA Director, George  Tenet, has arrived to the region, in order to resuscitate the Oslo Process, by resurrecting the legitimacy of Arafat and by rebuilding the PLO/PA's terror apparatus (otherwise called "security and police forces").  Tenet has been the intelligent, pleasant, and professional ally of Secretary Powell in the ideological battle with the Cheney-Rumsfeld school of thoughts. While Secretary Powell has considered Arafat and the Oslo Process as viable ingredients for peace, Cheney and Rumsfeld have concluded that the Oslo Process has undermined regional stability and US interests.  They have considered Arafat and the PLO as the key to the problem rather than the solution.
