Why Ground Offensive?!

Ynet Hebrew edition, July 18, 2006

A comprehensive, decisive and disproportionate ground offensive is a prerequisite for denying Hizballah and Palestinian terrorism the capabilities to bomb the center of Israel, to whack the psyche of civilians in northern and southern Israel, and to hit sensitive Israeli defense and civilian installations. 

 

KEEP TERRORISTS CLOSE TO THEIR END ZONE

Ynet Hebrew edition, July 10, 2006

"A cardinal rule in US football: Keep the other team as far as possible from your End Zone. The closer they are to their End Zone, the slimmer the chance that they will score a touchdown", taught me Jim Schoff, a fan of the Cleveland Browns. The rule applies to soccer as well: A team which foregoes the winning option and vies for a tie, adopts defense and relies on sporadic and limited offense, waives initiative.  Such a tactic erodes the confidence of its own players, bolsters the boldness of the rival team, improves the maneuverability of the rival team, which seizes initiative, scores goals and could win the game.

"Security 101" – Passover 2006

Ynet Hebrew edition, April 01, 2006

How realistic are those, who blur the security irreplaceability of the Judea & Samaria (J&S) mountain ridges, which constitute the "Golan Heights" of Jerusalem, of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem freeway and of the coastal plain?

 

If they would merely assume that the peace treaty with Jordan, and the demise of the Saddam regime, have eliminated the deadly threat from Israel's eastern front, DA'YE'NOU (it would have sufficed).

Self-Destruct Double Standard

Ynet Hebrew edition, January 20, 2006

Over 1,000 illegal houses are built annually – by Jerusalem Arabs – since 1997.  Only 30-40 are demolished by the authorities.

 

About 10,000 illegal houses are built, annually, by "Green Line" Arabs in the Galilee, Negev, "Triangle", Lod and Ramleh. About 100 are demolished.

A SOLUTION TO TERRORISM

Ynet Hebrew edition, January 05, 2006

Palestinian terrorism has been fueled by the "Titanic/Ship of Fools" state-of-mind, which has afflicted Israel's leadership since the 1993 establishment of the Palestinian Authority (PA):

 

The Impact of “Disengagement” upon US Interests – Will Congress Conduct Hearings?

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #178, May 26, 2005

1.  ESCALATED TERRORISM.  The morally/strategically justifiable demolition of terror regimes in Iraq and Afghanistan is inconsistent with the creation/bolstering of a terror regime in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. The 1994-6 series of disengagements from 85% and 40% of the territory (and 100% and 95% of the population) of Gaza and Judea and Samaria have established the largest terrorist base in the world, led/harbored by PLO/PA graduates of terrorist camps in Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Libya and Tunisia. Since 1993 the PA has harbored anti-US terrorists. US GIs in Afghanistan and Iraq were encountered by Palestinian terrorists.

Gaza: An Occupied Territory or a Land of Israel?

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #170, November 19, 2004

Fact: In October 1946, Kfar Darom (in the Gaza Strip) and ten other Jewish communities were established, in order to avert the British plan of disengaging the Negev from the Jewish State.

SIX ANNOTATIONS ON SETTLEMENTS

Ynet Hebrew Edition, September 23, 2004

1.  Are settlements a major cause for the Arab/Palestinian-Israeli conflict?

 

Land-for-Peace (L-F-P) – a Politically Incorrect Examination

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #166, August 22, 2004

1. Israel constitutes 0.2% (11,000 sqm) of the Arab League members (5.56MN sqm), which are 150% and 130% larger than the US and Europe respectively (and that does not include the 643,800 sqm of Iran). The L-F-P formula assumes that Israel should concede its scarcest asset – territory – while the Arabs are expected to accord Israel that which they have not shared with one another since the 7th century – compliance and peaceful co-existence.

Gaza – an Integral Part of the Land of Israel

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #165, August 22, 2004

1. The current Jewish community of Kfar Darom was established on the site of the 3rd-4th century AD Talmudic Jewish town of Kfar Darom (The Talmud's Massekhet Sota' referred to the sage Eliezer the son of Yitzhhak of Kfar Darom).  At the end of the 19th century, the land of Kfar Darom (“The Village of the South” in Hebrew) was acquired by Tuvia Miller from Rehovot, who transformed swamps into a blossoming orchard.
