CIA Director, George Tenet, has arrived to the region, in order to resuscitate the Oslo Process, by resurrecting the legitimacy of Arafat and by rebuilding the PLO/PA's terror apparatus (otherwise called "security and police forces"). Tenet has been the intelligent, pleasant, and professional ally of Secretary Powell in the ideological battle with the Cheney-Rumsfeld school of thoughts. While Secretary Powell has considered Arafat and the Oslo Process as viable ingredients for peace, Cheney and Rumsfeld have concluded that the Oslo Process has undermined regional stability and US interests. They have considered Arafat and the PLO as the key to the problem rather than the solution.

In 1991, the Chairman of the Joint C-o-S, Colin Powell, convinced President Bush #41 to abort the Gulf War, thus perpetuating the terror regime of Saddam Hussein. Consequently, the deterrence posture of the US was severely eroded, the anti-US wave of terror was drastically emboldened, climaxing on 9/11. Moreover, Saddam has evolved into a potential nuclear power, threatening US national security and requiring a US military effort, larger than the 1991 Gulf War.
In 2002, Secretary of State, Colin Powell, attempts to convince President Bush #43 to pressure Israel into a premature conclusion of its war on Palestinian terrorism, which would perpetuate the terror regime of the Palestinian Authority/PLO.

In fact, for the first time since Sept. 11, 2001, he has publicly lumped together the US war on Islamic terrorism and Israel's war on Palestinian terrorism.

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.

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…
