Prime Minister Barak's Fear of – and Susceptibility to – Pressure

Makor Rishon Weekly , January 05, 2001

Contrary to all his predecessors – who served until the1993 Oslo Accords – Prime Minister Barak has been extremely susceptible to US Administration pressure.  Unlike the leaders of Egypt, Turkey Germany and Italy, who have demonstrated tenacity in combating terrorism, and in contrast with his own outstanding service as the commander of special operations, Barak has been apprehensive of a resolute military battle against terrorism.  

How to Survive Violence? Let's Turn the Clock Forward

"Makor Rishon" Weekly, November 24, 2000

The unprecedented deterioration of the personal and national security in Jerusalem, Galilee, Acre, Jaffa, Negev and Netzarim, is the direct and lethal outcome of the Oslo Process.  The rectification of the erosion in Israel’s national and personal security is preconditioned upon the annulling – and not just suspension – of the Oslo Process.  The suspension - rather than the rescinding - of the Process has been suggested by spineless politicians. But, it would not solve the security problem; it would only postpone the end…

Arafat's Abuse of Palestinian Children

Ynet, November 07, 2000

A brutal, cynical and systematic abuse of children, has been employed by Middle East terror regimes, in order to advance radical goals, while eroding the civilian and military steadfastness of their adversaries. 

Department of State – A systematic Blunderer

Ynet , October 30, 2000

Israel's pre-1993 Israeli prime ministers defied US pressure to withdraw to the 1949 Lines ("with cosmetic changes"). On the other hand, Prime Minister Barak persists - like the other post-1993 Israeli prime ministers – to implement the US Department of State policy, which is bleeding and crumbling by the day.  Barak considers the Department of State as a luminary, in spite of its failing track record in the Middle East.

Barak – A Systematic Blunderer

Ynet , October 16, 2000

Prime Minister Barak arrived to the 2000 Sharem-A-Sheikh Summit as a negotiator whose red lines are routinely transformed into pink lines, whose dependency on the US has deepened.

But, Arafat is a partner for peace…

Ynet, October 10, 2000

Contrary to Prime Minister Barak's expectations, Arafat has concluded a series of PLO-Hamas understandings, starting three days following the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accord, which temporarily ended PLO-Hamas battles.

But Assad is an honorable man

Jerusalem Post, Opinion Section, December 28, 1999

Prime Minister Barak has claimed that Assad is an honorable man. Barak has given the public a false sense of security in order to facilitate a total withdrawal from the Golan Heights.

Presumptuous Proposal - US troops on the Golan Heights

Jerusalem Post, Opinion Section, June 26, 1994

Involving US troops in an Israeli-Syrian peace agreement is not just a suggestion floating somewhere between Jerusalem and Washington.  Congressman Lee Hamilton, Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, recently indicated that a US survey is already underway to determine the specific locations of a US peacekeeping force on the Golan. The survey's underlying assumption is that Israel will evacuate the whole Golan.

US Jewry's Political Clout

Jerusalem Post, Opinion Section, February 15, 1994

The recent scolding of United Jewish Appeal officials by top members of the Labor Party is part of what some say is a concerted effort to reduce the organized US Jewish community to its "proper" political size.

It may also reflect an attempt to undermine the credibility of the current leadership and enhance the stock of those who have always been "politically correct."

These suspicions explain Prime Minister Rabin's blunt reprimand of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee in August 1992.

 

Mideast Tapestry of Terror

Jerusaelm Post, Opinion Section, September 07, 1993
