From Oslo to Red Cross (a Pyrrhic Victory)

Ynet Hebrew edition, December 14, 2005

"If that's a victory, we'd hate to see a defeat," declared the Dec. 9, 2005 editorial of the Wall Street Journal – the most influential daily in the United States.  The editorial referred to Magen David Adom's (MDA) admission to the International Red Cross, in exchange for relinquishing the red Star of David for a red crystal/diamond (unless the host country allows the MDA personnel to insert the Red Star of David into the crystal/diamond).

It’s the Palestinian Authority, Stupid!

Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom #184, September 25, 2005

1.  THE 1993-94 IMPORTATION OF THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY (PA) from terrorist camps in Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Tunisia and Lebanon created the largest terrorist base in the Middle East. The PA, rather than Hamas, has provided the overriding manpower, hate-education, logistics and operational capabilities, which have produced an unprecedented wave of Palestinian terrorism.  Suspension of disbelief has presented the PA as a partner for peace, rather than a terrorist regime. It is consistent with Oslo wishful-thinking, but inconsistent with Middle East reality and with an effective battle against global terrorism.
