Will State Controller Inquiry into Pollard Affair Bring Out Facts or be Political Whitewash?

.

Commentary;

Almost a year and 4 months ago Esther Pollard spoke at Young Israel Beit Knesset Hanassi, Jerusalem indicating that State Controller Micha Lindenstrauss had promised to investigate the entire Pollard affair and the role of successive Israeli governments in it.

It is a disappointment that 16 months later, it seems that only a mandate by the Knesset State Control committee has compelled beginning such an investigation and that the State Controller and his staff apparently did not take the initiative on its own to investigate based on his meetings with and promises to Esther Pollard. [...]  Click here to read more.

Parsha Va’era 5768: How to Reconnect to Disconnected Israelis?

.
At the conclusion of Parsha Shemos, Moshe and Aaron are confronted, upon exiting Pharoh’s Palace, by the B’nai Yisrael who are in deeper despair than before because of the increased workload which resulted from Pharoh’s fury at Moshe’s first effort to secure their freedom and exit from Mitzrayim.

Our Parsha begins with the dialogue which Moshe Rebbeinu has with Hashem prior to again speaking to the B’nai Yisrael. And so, after
Hashem rebukes Moshe for his complaint and reassures him that redemption is at hand, Moshe again addresses the B’nai Yisrael as to his meeting with Pharoh.

Was Olmert Ready to Dismantle Checkpoints Before Attack on Hikers?

.


Commentary;

Was Olmert secretly preparing to make imminent withdrawals of checkpoints, such as the Gaza checkpoint which uncovered the explosive contraband (disguised as sugar from the EU), prior to Friday’s ambush of the IDF hikers who were on leave?

That is the critical question to be asked in light of the quote below. MB

“As long as the Palestinian Authority doesn’t implement the measures demanded of them, in the way which is demanded of them in order to act against terror organizations, the state of Israel will not be able to make any changes on the ground” : Ehud Olmert [...]  Click here to read more.

IDF: Chemicals Were Disguised as EU Aid, by Talia Dekel (Jerusalem Post)


Explosive contraband or EU aid???

Excerpt;

“The IDF and Shin Bet uncovered 6.5 tons of potassium nitrate [for the manufacturing of explosives and Kassam rockets] hidden in sacks that were disguised as aid from the European Union…. Another example of how the terror organizations exploit the humanitarian aid that is delivered to the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip with Israel’s approval” [...]  Click here to read more.

Is President Bush in Danger from Terrorist “Bodyguards” During Upcoming Trip to ME?

.


Commentary;

That a bodyguard of the PA’s senior negotiator Ahmed Qureia (Abu Ala) was a terrorist is no great surprise. And it’s also no surprise that a Fatah security team, assigned during meetings with Mahmoud Abbas in August, to protect Ehud Olmert, “whose members he [Olmert] armed, pardoned and funded,” plotted, but were foiled in an attempted attack on the Israeli Prime Minister.

But this blog joins Barak of IRIS in expressing total consternation that the Bush entourage and security team would sanction coordination with with Al Aksa Brigades terrorists, in the guise of security, is shocking and apalling. Why, the attempted assassins of Olmert who got off with two months in PA jail may well be part of Bush’s security detail. One therefore must express all due trepidation for the President’s security during his upcoming trip here. MB [...]  Click here to read more.

Olmert, Livni, Barak Regime Bungle National Defense With Destructo Diplomacy

.

Commentary;

Just as Olmert boasted that the summer 2006 Lebanon debacle was a boon for “convergence, realignment, consolidation” or whatever other synonyms he chose on whatever day, Dr. Aaron Lerner’s weekly commentary decries Olmert’s recent Annapolis boasts. Olmert’s latest so-called “peace” efforts “presenting Israeli withdrawals as a gain rather than sacrifice” and his bogus assertions that “Israel has no choice but to accept a final status deal at any price” are part of the regime’s destructo “diplomacy” which only further emboldens the murderous Islamic enemy.
