Is Israel's Existence The Greatest Crime
By Sarah Honig
The Jerusalem Post - May. 26, 2005
Arabs may hate us unabatingly and viscerally, but they study us and ape our national rites. Take our sirens and our standing at mournful attention to commemorate Holocaust martyrs and fallen soldiers. Palestinians lifted these lock, stock and solemnity. On May 15, the Gregorian date of our Independence Day, they sounded sirens, ceased all activity, obeyed a moment's silence and stood at attention - all to deplore the existence of the Jewish state, the very one toward which their head honchos assure the world (in English) that they harbor peaceful intentions.
Back in September 1976, I asked Defense Minister Shimon Peres’ political adviser, Asher Ben-Natan, “What is Israel’s major problem?” He replied: “We can’t lie as well as the Arabs.” Mr. Ben-Natan’s reply actually reveals the basic cause of Israel’s malaise: the failure or inability of Israel’s ruling elites to tell the truth about the one issue on which Arabs allegedly excel Jews in mendacity—the issue of peace.

DEBKAfile Special Report from Washington
May 26, 2005, 12:49 PM (GMT+02:00)
26 May: The Bush administration has always shied from getting confrontational with Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon. Eager to see the Gaza and northern Samaria "disengagement" get underway, Washington backed the pullouts with all the diplomatic means and media spin at its disposal.
AIPAC Fooled by Sharon?
Arutz Sheva - IsraelNationalNews.com - May 26, 2005
When PM Sharon told AIPAC this week, "Population centers in [Yesha] will remain an integral part of Israel and be contiguous to Israel in any final status agreement," what exactly did he mean? Mr. Sharon's audience of 5,000 cheered this statement, as well as others he made in his speech. But he was being purposefully vague.
THE RISE OF AFSI VERSUS THE DOOM OF AIPAC
by Dr. Yehuda Tzoref
IsraelNationalNews.com -May 25, '05 / 16 Iyar 5765
Whether AIPAC represents the majority of American Jewry, that’s questionable, however AIPAC’s open support for Sharon’s planned destruction of the Jewish province of Gush Katif is a shameful display of inexcusable depravity. For Sharon’s policy is a reprehensible disengagement from the basic values of democracy, humanism and Jewish morals.

Yad Mordechai, Nitzanim, Kfar Etzion and Kfar Darom share much in common. All were lost to invading Arab forces during the vicious existential war imposed on the newborn Jewish state in 1948. All were eventually won back, all resettled and reclaimed from the utter ruin to which unbridled hate reduced them.
