    The Knesset held a special session on Monday, two years after the death of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took to the plenum to remember Sharon, offering both praise and criticism. ..... Netanyahu was harshly critical, however, of Sharon’s controversial decision to unilaterally withdraw from the Gaza Strip in the 2005 Gaza Disengagement. He blamed Sharon’s actions for the rise of the Hamas government in Gaza and its increasing ability to strike at the heart of Israel. “In Gaza, we received a base for Hamas terror adjacent to our territory,” he said. “Unfortunately, transferring control...

    Obama is going to find it impossible to impose his land swap proposals – if Oren has any say. Michael Oren – one of seven members of the recently formed Kulanu party elected to Israel’s new Parliament – seems destined to play a pivotal role in torpedoing President Obama’s proposals for a two-state solution aimed at resolving the 100 years old Arab-Jewish conflict. Agreement has reportedly been reached between Israel’s Prime Minister elect Benjamin Netanyahu and Kulanu chairman Moshe Kahlon for Kahlon to be appointed Finance Minister. Fellow Kulanu members - Yoav Galant and Eli Alalouf - will serve respectively...

    ..... Here is what I had to say the next morning in the following dispatch for Arutz Sheva…note the date and note that it still hurts: A Dreamer Dreams in Cherry Hill First posting: March 29, 2004 Israel's grand diplomat, Shimon Peres, came to New Jersey this past Sunday night, to a synagogue in Cherry Hill, and found an audience of some 1,500 that agreed with him from A to Z, or if you please, from Aleph to Tav. He is a charmer and he charmed. He is a dreamer and he dreamed. None of this is so simple, of...

    Israel’s predicament today is the work of Rabin and Sharon; two generals turned prime ministers who launched ambitious ventures and died leaving them unfinished and their nation in twilight. Rabin’s peace process destroyed Israeli national security and revitalized terrorism as a force in political affairs. Had he lived, he might have turned away from it. The idea had been thrust on him by the fringe left and he had grasped it as a hedge against the political oblivion of a leftist party that had lost credibility in a new Israel no longer dominated by the Socialist vision of cooperatives and...

    The formative moment of Ariel Sharon’s life came in May 1948; not with the Declaration of Independence – which he heard on the radio wafting out of an open window on his way to kiss his girlfriend Gali before a mission – but with the battle for Latrun, 11 days later, in which he was left for dead. >>SNIP<< For the first and last time in my life as a commander, I gave the order: retreat, retreat and leave the wounded in the field. “There was no choice. I had to save the few that were still alive. I lay...

    Faced with the intense difficulty of what to say about Ariel Sharon, the former Israeli prime minister who died early Saturday after eight years in a coma, President Barack Obama didn’t say much. The statement from Obama — who never met Sharon, and wasn’t yet even running for president when he fell into a coma, mentioned nothing about the Israeli leader’s own complicated history with war and peace, remarking only in sending “our deepest condolences” that he was a leader who “dedicated his life to the State of Israel.”
