The Impact of the Likud Referendum on US-Israel Ties

Ynet Hebrew Edition, April 30, 2004

In 1973, President Nixon accorded a top priority to Israel's retreat from certain areas in Sinai and to the lifting of the siege over Egypt's Third Brigade. Therefore, he did not limit himself to the recycling of very friendly, yet ambiguous and non-binding declarations, but increased the military grant to Israel three folds ($983MN) and extended a $4.15BN loan.

Rejecting the North Samaria and Gaza Giveaway Would Not Undermine US-Israel Relations

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #159, April 27, 2004 FACT: President Bush did not initiate the Giveaway, does not consider it a top priority, and therefore refuses to finance it. President Bush has limited his support to very friendly declarations, which are ambiguous, non-binding, and do not repudiate the Palestinian "claim of return", nor do they support Israel's sovereignty beyond the Green Line.

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #158 , April 22, 2004

1. ISRAEL DISENGAGED ITSELF FROM GAZA ALREADY IN 1993 (and from 40% of Judea and Samaria), in accordance with the Oslo Accords. The outcome has been: 1,400 Israelis murdered by Palestinian terrorists during the last 10 years, compared with 215 murdered during the 15 years prior to Oslo. 8,000 Jews reside in Gaza, disengaged from the Arab population.  Israel's military presence there is in response to Palestinian terrorism.

Wanted, Leadership in Jerusalem!

Makor Rishon Weekly , March 26, 2004

In 1967, the Israeli society was panicked by the deadly threat posed by the May 30 Egypt-Syria-Jordan anti-Israel military pact, by the brutal pressure of the US, France, Britain and the international community to refrain from a preemptive operation, by the deepening (20%) unemployment, and by escalating pessimism within the political and military leadership.

 

Prime Minister Levy Eshkol exercised leadership.  He was not swept by the weakness of the people, and he did not allow a transient somber reality to erode long term national strategic goals.  Instead, he leveraged the crisis as a springboard for a strategic upgrade.  He defied US and international pressure, launched the preemptive Six Day War, destroyed the infrastructure of the threatening enemy, rescuing the Jewish State from pending oblivion.  Eshkol, therefore, enhanced strategic appreciation of Israel, transforming the Jewish State from a "historical accident" to a factor of regional deterrence and a unique strategic ally of the USA.
