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 Delusion of US Foreign Aid

"Makor Rishon" Weekly, May 19, 2006

Before Israel disburses the billions of dollars in US aid - to defray the cost of another Israeli retreat – the US has to approve such an aid package.  However, the chance of approving such a package is identical to the chance of Israel receiving US financial aid for previous retreats from Southern Lebanon, Northern Samaria and Gaza – Zero!

"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).

Stop Foreign Aid to the Palestinians

The New York Sun, Opinion Section, February 27, 2006

A 57% majority of Americans oppose foreign aid to Palestinians, according to a February 2006 Gallup poll. They know that persisting in financial assistance to a rogue regime amounts to a repeat of past mistakes, rather than learning from them.

A SOLUTION TO TERRORISM

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):

 

From Oslo to Red Cross (a Pyrrhic Victory)

Ynet Hebrew edition, December 14, 2005

"If that's a victory, we'd hate to see a defeat," declared the Dec. 9, 2005 editorial of the Wall Street Journal – the most influential daily in the United States.  The editorial referred to Magen David Adom's (MDA) admission to the International Red Cross, in exchange for relinquishing the red Star of David for a red crystal/diamond (unless the host country allows the MDA personnel to insert the Red Star of David into the crystal/diamond).
