BUSH OPPOSES "DISENGAGEMENT"

Ynet Hebrew edition, July 06, 2005

The US-Israel Saga: A Win-Win Relationship

Ynet Hebrew edition, May 11, 2005

Statements made by, and the conduct of, Israel's leaders since 1993 create the false impression that Israel-US ties constitute a one-way relationship.  The presumption is that the US gives and Israel receives, leading to Israel s inferior position and the alleged compulsion to follow the State Department dictates. 

However, Former Secretary of State and NATO forces commander Alexander Haig refutes this claim, saying:  "I am pro-Israel because Israel constitutes the largest US aircraft carrier that cannot be sunk, does not carry even one US soldier, and is located in a most critical region for US national security."

Free Palestinian Election?

Abu Mazen - A New Palestinian Regime?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2004/nov/29/20041129-095026-7116r/?page=1, November 30, 2004

The US would not negotiate with any member of the Taliban or Ba'th regimes. A prerequisite for the emergence of a moderate Palestinian regime is the elimination of the current rogue Palestinian regime. A precondition for the holding of free Palestinian election, and for the attainment of a durable Israeli-Palestinian accord, is the uprooting of the regime, which has ruthlessly dominated the Palestinian scene since 1964. The old Palestinian regime has been the role model of international terrorism, inter-Arab treachery, serial non-compliance with agreements, hate education, corruption and suppression of Palestinian human rights.
