Israel’s Secret Retreat Map

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

There is a code of silence about what is being discussed in current Israeli Palestinian negotiations. However, possible disastrous results of those talks were reached almost nine years ago.

In March, 2005, Yuli Edelstein, then a deputy government minister and now the speaker of the Knesset, appeared at the Alon Shvut community center in Gush Etzion in which he reported to a stunned audience that the February 20, 2005 retreat decision of the Israeli government did not only apply to Katif and to four small Jewish communities in Samaria.

Edelstein warned that the February 20, 2005 Israeli government decision was to redraw the areas of Jewish residency in the almost all areas that Israel acquired in the 1967 war.

The new map, approved by the Israeli government, he said, was immediately posted on the web site of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and is posted there to this day for all American government officials to peruse.

That Israeli government approved retreat map means that an additional 63 Jewish communities can be expelled and dismantled in their entirety by an Israeli government decision that has already been made.

Without any further government decision, the Israeli government is authorized to order the IDF to implement the next stages of the February 20, 2005 Israel government retreat decision

Prominent members of that Israeli government included Benyamin Netanyahu, now the prime minister of Israel, Tzippi Livni, then and now the Justice Minister of Israel, and Shimon Peres, now the president of Israel.

Jewish communities slated for destruction under the 2005 Israeli government decision are spread throughout Samaria, Judea, Hevron and the entire Jordan Valley, demarcated on the National Geographic Atlas as parts of the “west bank”, alluding to the west bank of the Jordan River

However, this Israeli government approved retreat map remains unknown in Israel.

It has never been posted by the Israeli government nor has this retreat map ever or discussed in the Israeli public domain – not in the media, not in the Knesset and not in the current Israeli government, for fear of massive public opposition.

That February 20th, 2005 retreat decision empowers the Israeli Security Establishment to implement surrender of almost all of Samaria, Judea, Hevron, and the entire Jordan Valley to an entity which remains in a state of war with the state and Israel.

In other words, the conclusion of current Israel Palestinian talks has already been reached.

Here is the Israel government approved retreat map which the government of Israel should share with the Israeli public, the Knesset, and the media.

Will Congress Investigate Obama’s Attempt to Derail Bibi?

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Dan Senor, American author of Start Up Nation and former adviser to U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney, sent out an electrifying message on Israel’s election day, January 22, claiming that two U.S. officials in Israel quietly conceded that President Obama’s statements to Atlantic columnist Jeffrey Goldberg were an intentional effort to hurt Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in the election.

If what Senor claims is true, and President Obama was attempting to influence the Israeli election, it is possible that it could become the subject of a congressional investigation.

The statements at issue were revealed in an article Goldberg wrote for Bloomberg on January 14.  That article, the headline of which was, “Obama: Israel Doesn’t Know What its Best Interests Are,” was filled with insider dish from Goldberg, and it was ugly.

Among the things that Goldberg claimed Obama has said about Netanyahu were that his policies were “self-defeating,” that “Israel doesn’t know what its own interests are,” and that “Netanyahu is moving his country down the path toward near-total isolation.”  Goldberg wrote that Obama made these comments frequently, and to several people.

The particular impetus for Obama’s dissing of the Israeli Prime Minister, according to Goldberg, was the decision to go ahead with building Jewish homes in Mevaseret Adumim (often referred to by the impersonal designation “E1.”)  The decision to go forward with building in this area came on the heels of the United Nations vote upgrading the status of the Palestinian Authority to non-member observer state in November of last year.

Goldberg, a centrist liberal Jewish writer who is considered to have credible access to the White House, opined in his article that

On matters related to the Palestinians, the president seems to view the prime minister as a political coward, an essentially unchallenged leader who nevertheless is unwilling to lead or spend political capital to advance the cause of compromise.

It is tempting to believe that Goldberg suffers from excessive hubris and confused his own views for that of the president’s.  But Senor’s tweet reveals that U.S. officials understood that what President Obama was doing was issuing a not so subtly veiled threat to the Israeli people that the U.S. may be willing to really put daylight between itself and Israel unless they choose a less intractable prime minister.

This is the Senor message and several responses.
