Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, now exhale slowly… That was easy, wasn’t it? Not for everyone…
As Secretary of State Powell continues in efforts to promote the so-called Middle East “Road Map,” the Bush administration’s apparent departure from the firm, uncompromising anti-terror American resolve President Bush articulated on June 24th last year and re-enforced by
Operation Iraqi Freedom, is nothing short of stunning.
As things now appear, in order “to get things going,” a pathetic, powerless Abu Mazen is accepted as heading up a Palestinian Arab “regime change.” The insistence on an end to the killing as a precondition for renewed talks and a demand for the dismantlement of the Palestinian-Arab terrorist infrastructure are now to be satisfied by begging for a cease fire in place from Hamas and the other thugs.
According to the “Road Map,” even before anyone sits down at a negotiating table, Israel must agree to abandon its anti-terrorist efforts, it must acknowledge a future Palestinian Arab state, and the “settlements” must be uprooted. On the other hand, whether the Palestinians will, through the so-called “right of return,” be able to erase the “Jewish” state which the President said on June 24th is supposed to exist side by side with a Palestinian Arab one, is something to be negotiated.
Although the President is rightfully resisting the involvement of the UN, the European Union, France and the other opponents of Operation Iraqi Freedom out of a reasonable fear that they will act as an anti-American “fifth column” on the ground, they will be playing a key role in the
implementation of the “Road Map with America’s blessing, despite their collective, shameful anti-Israel record.
What exactly are the incentives for the Palestinian Arabs to negotiate in good faith? What exactly are the concessions they think they will have to make?
With all respect, the President has to kick back and think this “Road Map” thing through very carefully.

Mr. Nadler’s support for the deal is a naked political gift to a president who has defied logic in his quest to reinvent international affairs according to his ideological inclinations.
In practical terms, the proclamation surely makes a compelling argument:
The Jewish Press will be keeping tabs on the public positions taken by Democratic members of the Senate and House.
If the reports are accurate, it’s hard to fathom why Sen. Schumer feels it necessary to eschew urging his colleagues to oppose the Iran deal.
Since Republicans are expected to almost uniformly oppose the agreement, the key to its fate will be how many Democrats oppose it.
Jonathan Pollard’s presumptive release in mid-November 2015 had long been a matter of public record, though many may not have been aware of it.
We daresay there are many stories of successful business ventures among chassidim.
