The Problem was Oslo – not the Occupation

Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres

Again: We didn’t get into this mess because of the “occupation”. It’s the reckless, ideologically blinded pro-withdrawal policies that got us into this mess.

  1. All this mess coming from Oslo could have and should have been forseen. Just everyone was cought up in the romance of it all. And so facts were hidden from the public. "Just get them to sign on the bottom line. It doesn't matter if they honor anything they sign or not. Nobel Prizes for everyone!

  2. (H/t to Catriel Sugarman for bringing this to my attention.)

    It's more than just having "redeemed Yasser Arafat from the ashheap of history." I've maintained for nigh onto twenty years now that the local Arabs *DO* have one legitimate grievance against Israel – that we took a group of foreign thugs, Moscow-trained and half of them not even born here, from Tunis and brought them in to the territories and set them up as overlords.

    And let's not forget WHY this happened: Shimon Peres wanted to steal the Premiership away from Yitzhak Rabin, and so he thought that by presenting a fait accompli packaged "peace" deal to the Labor party that he could take over. And his "peace" was all about "peace and quiet," and keeping Israel's hands clean. He brought in thugs, believing that they were viscious enough to "take charge," suppress dissent, and control the terrorism of the First Intifada. Foolish coward that he is, having served only as a "jobnik" and knowing nothing of either the Arab mentality or how bottom-dwelling criminals operate, he couldn't conceive that the man who tried to assasinate King Hussein, and who started a civil war in Lebanon, would ever bite the hand that fed him after being handed the kleptomaniac's fantasy — the keys to an entire "nation."

  3. If we had Meyer Lansky instead of these Stalin type idiots this place could be haven!

The Israeli media portrays Israeli brass and ex-brass who oppose Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the Iran issue as a group whose assessment is based solely on a cold hard analysis of the situation. Unfortunately, there is a reasonable possibility that the Israeli brass and ex-brass themselves have piggy-backed their agenda to the Iranian debate.

For years the Egyptians have been trying to erode the Sinai force restrictions set in the peace treaty they signed with Israel. Force restrictions that were a necessary condition for Israel agreeing to restore the Sinai to Egyptian control. The Egyptians see the force restrictions as impinging on their sovereignty. Israel always considered the force restrictions as critical for the Jewish State’s national security.

Minister Benny Begin and others who oppose the law argue that it will be voided by the Supreme Court and that the law will damage Israel on the international front. If the Supreme Court indeed voids the law this will no doubt bring praise for Israel from the international community – not condemnation. And rest assured the court will rule on the law in lightning speed.

Oslo took Yasser Arafat and his PLO off the dung heap of history, when only radicals in the West were talking about anything beyond a Palestinian autonomy, and lead ultimately to the diplomatic challenge we face today – with the critical message of UNSC 242 – no requirement of full withdrawal – being ignored.

Making gestures should in no way be accompanied by a reconciliatory approach towards objectionable Palestinian behavior and Palestinian pronouncements. Toning down criticism of the PA not only doesn’t serve the interests of Israel – it ultimately does not serve the interests of the Palestinians.

There is certainly much to be learned from the events of 1970 and the nightmare that followed in 1973. Much that is extremely relevant to our own times. Israel paid dearly in 1973 for accepting the Egyptian violation of the 1970 agreement. And the Jewish State may yet again pay dearly if it continues to accept the ongoing security violations of Oslo in the Gaza Strip.
