Police investigators look at one of two cars which blew up on Monday in the city of Yehud in Israel.


A 51-year-old Israeli shepherd became the latest Jewish fatality in the nine-month-
old Palestinian intifada when his body was found near Hebron Tuesday morning. The killing of Yair Har-Sinai, a father of nine children, was just one in a series of violent incidents this week that gave the lie to the notion that anything approaching a state of lowered hostilities is currently in place.

They Call This A Cease-Fire? Father Of Nine Is Latest Israeli Victim

A 51-year-old Israeli shepherd became the latest Jewish fatality in the nine-month-old Palestinian intifada when his body was found near Hebron Tuesday morning. The killing of Yair Har-Sinai, a father of nine children, was just one in a series of violent incidents this week that gave the lie to the notion that anything approaching a state of lowered hostilities is currently in place.

Israeli officials insisted, however, that the violent upsurge had weakened but not destroyed the U.S.-brokered cease-fire agreement. Speaking to a Knesset committee earlier this week, Foreign Minister Shimon Peres acknowledged that ?the cease-fire is in a very deep crisis,? but said that ?we have to do everything to save it, because halting the cease-fire means more victims and more blood on both side.?

United Nations Middle East envoy Terje Roed-Larsen said on Tuesday that he doesn?t expect the cease-fire to hold. ?If these incidents continue to happen,? he warned, ?it will mean that we will face a new crisis.?

Palestinian Information Minister Yasir Abed Rabbo was equally pessimistic, but blamed Israel for the deteriorating situation. ?Sharon alone is responsible for the crimes of the past days,? he said. ?Each time we begin to seriously implement a cease-fire…Sharon kills the opportunity by conducting a policy of assassination and terror.?

Rabbo was referring to the killing of three Islamic Jihad leaders Sunday night in the city of Jenin; the men died when their car came under missile fire from an Israeli Air Force attack helicopter.

Israeli leaders characterized the hit as an act of self-defense; the three targeted Palestinians, they said, had been responsible for bombings in the Hadera area and were planning new attacks.

?They were heavy terrorists who had been allowed to roam free,? said Israeli Transportation Minister Ephraim Sneh.

In some other incidents of Palestinian violence this week, an Israeli motorist, Avi Romano, was shot and wounded on the access road to Har Bracha; shots were fired at an Israeli vehicle transporting workers on the Trans-Israel Highway south of Tulkarm; Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian spotted planting a bomb between Itamar and Eilon Moreh; two bombs exploded in the Tel Aviv suburb of Yehud, injuring six people; Palestinians hurled four grenades at Israeli troops stationed along the Egyptian border near Rafah; and Palestinians fired an anti-tank grenade and shot at an IDF post near Gadid in Gush Katif.

These are not necessarily the best all-around biographies or studies of the individual presidents listed (though some rank right up there), but the strongest in terms of exploring presidential attitudes and policies toward Israel.

The Clintonan “engagement” liberals remember with such fondness did nothing but embolden Arafat and Hamas and Hizbullah as they witnessed Israel’s only real ally elevate process ahead of policy.

What really makes one wonder about the affinity felt by certain Jews for Grant was the welcome mat he put out for some of the country’s most pernicious anti-Semites.

With 2013 marking half a century since Kennedy’s fateful limousine ride in Dallas, the current revels are exceeding the revisionist frenzies of years past, with a seemingly endless parade of books, articles and television specials designed to assure us that, despite everything that has come to light about him since his death, JFK was a great president, or at least a very good president who would have been great had his life not been so cruelly cut short.

As someone who for the past fifteen years has been writing a column that largely focuses on the news media, I’ve read what is no doubt an altogether unhealthy number of books on the subject. Most of them were instantly forgettable while some created a brief buzz but failed to pass the test of time. And then there were those select few that merited a permanent spot on the bookshelf.

George W. Bush has been getting some positive media coverage lately, with recent polls showing him at least as popular as his successor, Barack Obama, and a big new book about the Bush presidency by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker (Days of Fire, Doubleday) portraying Bush as a much more hands-on chief executive than his detractors ever imagined.

Readers who’ve stuck with the Monitor over the years will forgive this rerun of sorts, but as we approach the fortieth anniversary of the Yom Kippur War – and with the stench of presidential indecisiveness hanging so heavily over Washington these days – it seemed only appropriate to revisit Richard Nixon’s role in enabling Israel to recover from the staggering setbacks it suffered in the first week of fighting.
