WHAT MAKES PRESIDENT BUSH RUN (WITH JERUSALEM)?

Ynet Hebrew Edition, December 14, 2001

One should not overstate the significance of recent gestures made by President Bush towards Israel and the Jewish People.  At the same time, one should not ignore the unprecedently GLARING GREEN LIGHT to Israel's counter terrorism effort, emanating - SO FAR - from the White House.

 

What makes President George W. Bush run (with Jerusalem)?

AVOID THE SOUTH VIETNAM SYNDROME!

Ynet Hebrew Edition, December 02, 2001

"Israel has repeated - rather than learnt from - US errors in Vietnam. Israel deludes itself that it would resemble the US in the potential Vietnam-like Mideast syndrome.  In fact, Israel would resemble South Vietnam.  While the PLO has consistently implemented the VietCong tactics of terror-of-attrition, Israel has increasingly responded in a South Vietnam-like manner. I am concerned that if Israel persists in its current counter-terrorist tactics, it may unfortunately end up like South Vietnam!"  (Retired Army General, W. Moore, in a recent conversation in Washington, DC).

And, indeed, President Bush launched a war on Saddam, in spite of his own intelligence estimates that the US might lose 20,000-30,000 soldiers.

The American Window of Opportunity

Ynet, April 18, 2001

media has been relatively calm upon the 2001 election of Prime Minister Arik Sharon, unlike the assault on former Prime Minister Netanyahu upon assuming office in 1996.  It was the vicious media briefings, and leaks, by the Clinton Administration, which fueled the media in 1996,

President Clinton: A Lethal Friend

Ynet, January 18, 2001

President Clinton’s admirers have claimed that he has been the most pro-Israel President, ever serving in the White House.  However, a proper due-diligence of Clinton’s policy toward Israel reveals that the road to security and political hell could be paved with good intentions.
