    Government and police spokesmen would have us believe that the carnage in Jerusalem on Wednesday was unavoidable. Husam Taysir Dwayat, the convicted rapist, burglar and drug dealer turned jihadist who mowed down innocent people with his bulldozer on Jaffa Road was not suspected of links to terrorist organizations. The sociopathic, violent criminal who had "returned" to Islam over the past month raised no red flags. There was nothing to be done. No one is to blame. If the protestations of the government and the police that nothing could have prevented Dwayat from using his bulldozer to murder three people sound...

    Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has ordered the army to prepare to demolish the home of the Palestinian who killed three Israelis in Jerusalem. The order follows advice by Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz that the proposed demolition could create legal difficulties, but would not be illegal. An Israeli rights group has said such a move would be collective punishment. B'tselem says it has written to Mr Mazuz demanding that he prevent the attacker's home from being demolished. The group argues that the demolition would, as collective punishment, be illegal under international humanitarian law. Hussam Dwayat went on the rampage at the...

    Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak met Tuesday on the sidelines of the Socialist International congress in Greece. "I would like to salute the pragmatism of Mr Abbas, who wants to adopt with us a common strategy to contain terrorism," said Barak a few minutes after the meeting, according to a translation of his remarks. For his part, Abbas called upon Israel to end its "siege" of Jerusalem, act on Jewish settlements, and reduce the number of military checkpoints which "destroy the lives of thousands of Palestinians". Both men were to meet separately with Greek Prime...

    Incoming Defense Minister Ehud Barak is planning an attack on Gaza within weeks to crush Hamas, it was reported on Sunday morning. Britain's Sunday Times quoted senior IDF sources as saying that the planned Gaza assault would require 20,000 troops to destroy the bulk of Hamas's military capability in a few days. The raid would be triggered by Hamas rocket attacks or a resumption of suicide bombings, said the British newspaper.

    The Palestinian civil war is about to become a wider conflict. THROUGH the heat haze, the sounds of shots and screams carried to the desperate men holed up inside a great white building in Gaza City. This was the American-built headquarters of the Office of General Security, a “moderate” Palestinian intelligence service charged with tracking and curbing the activities of Hamas extremists in an attempt to bring stability to Gaza and pave the way to peace. Sweating, terrified, gabbling into their dying mobile phones to the outside world, the hunters were now the besieged. Nearby, neighbours cowered in their high-rise...

    But he warns that if Tehran gets a bomb, 'others will follow' On a day in which Iran was found to be in defiance of a U.N. Security Council demand to stop enriching uranium, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak said he remains unafraid of his nation's rogue regional neighbor. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has famously called for the destruction of the Jewish state. That task would be made considerably easier if anti-Zionists were in possession of a nuclear bomb, which the Bush administration and others have claimed is Iran's intention. But Barak, speaking to a crowd of hundreds at...

    Weekend Talk Show Preview - Analysis for August 12th and 13th, 2006On the shows this weekend I'm most interested by Vali Nasr, on CNN, and Ken Mehlman, on Meet The Press.  I think we'll learn more about the events in the Middle East from Nasr and more about the coming campaign from Mehlman than all of the other guests, combined.  Nasr is an expert, from Iran, on the issues of conflict between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.  I actually view this as our best hope of winning the coming world war.  Just as Communists and Nazis joined forces to start World...
  • The Jihad against Sharon by Israel's Totalitarian Press

    The hegemony over the Hebrew press in Israel by the Far Left has always been a threat to Israeli democracy. The Left utilizes its near-monopoly over the Hebrew press to promote its extremist and defeatist agenda in a naked manner. The Oslo debacle would never have occurred without Israel's Far Left exercising near-totalitarian hegemony over the Hebrew press and electronic media. But now there is a clear and present danger that Israel's Leftist-controlled Hebrew press may simply "steal" the election away from Ariel Sharon and grant it to Amram Mitzna. It was of course expected that the press would conscript...

    On Dec. 5, 2001, ImClone Systems, a biotech company that was seeking Food and Drug Administration approval for a promising anti-cancer drug called Erbitux, saw its stock peak at a price of $74 a share and begin an earthward trajectory. On the evening of Dec. 6, ImClone’s chief executive, Sam Waksal, 54, threw his annual Christmas party at the 5,000-square-foot Thompson Street loft that he calls home. Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman was in attendance, as well as former New York Times executive editor Abe Rosenthal and art dealer Larry Gagosian. Film producer Keith Barish put in a brief appearance,...

    A new political map Separate existence of Labor and Likud does not represent new consensus Ehud Barak Photo: AP Benjamin Netanyahu Photo: Alex Kolomoisky Institutions last long after they have stopped being relevant. Some come crashing down suddenly, while others die a slow death. The Labor Party is an example of an institution dying a slow death. It is true some political parties replace their old platform with a newer one, draw younger supporters and offer updated leadership, but there is no sign of this occurring in Labor, which is led by an 81-year-old man, while his apparent successors are...

    Peres, Barak compromise on June 29 election By GIL HOFFMAN Labor chairman Shimon Peres and former prime minister Ehud Barak tentatively compromised on a June 29 date for the next Labor leadership race on Thursday, following shuttle diplomacy by Labor faction chair Dalia Itzik. The compromise ended a bitter, week-long confrontation between Peres and Barak that culminated with the intervention of Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz and Police Insp. Gen. Moshe Karadi. But Peres said the compromise was contingent on the agreement of the rest of Labor's top brass ahead of Sunday's key Labor central committee meeting. "I will accept any compromise...

    Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak told Israel Television Sunday that the Labor party should have taken much firmer centralist stands, by now, for example, that Arafat is not a partner for negotiations. "We should have stated emphatically that we will support Sharon in positive steps, but not join his government unless he goes ahead with his plans," he said. Barak said he had hoped Sharon realized by now that leaders must sometimes make difficult decisions, but was afraid the PM was ending this battle weaker than before. However, he said, the fight was not yet over. "A prime minister must...

Barak added that while he disagrees with many key governmental policies, there is no justification for former cabinet ministers and members of Knesset to engage in behind-the-scene negotiations and the signing of any documents. He stated emphatically that the actions of Yossi Beilin...

He called it "irresponsible and damaging to the State of Israel," Y-Net reported. He said that if the Labor Party wants to be taken seriously, it cannot be a party to such initiatives that "confuse both the public and our friends alike." A group of left-wing and Labor politicians left for Jordan on Thursday evening to sign the agreement....
