In a telephone conversation [today] held several hours after announcement of the agreement to form a Hamas-Fatah government, senior Palestinian official Nabil Sha’ath told IMRA (Independent Media Review and Analysis) that the unity government will take complete responsibility for the management of the Gaza Strip and West Bank and not just preparations for the elections.
IMRA asked Sha’ath if that responsibility included responsibility for security matters and Sha’ath responded that it would be responsible for all matters.
IMRA asked Sha’ath if the unity government would be responsible for the thousands of rockets and missiles now deployed in the Gaza Strip.
Sha’ath replied: “What missiles? This is propaganda. What about all the Israeli missiles?”
IMRA noted that Hamas is proud of the missiles they possess and that they have released video clips of launchings.
Sha’ath ended the conversation.Dr. Aaron Lerner

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.
