"In the past, and also recently, what we heard from the Americans, including publicly, and from the Europeans and even from the Russians, was that Iran must be distanced years – not months...

    After a rocket was fired at Eilat by Al Qaeda-inspired Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem) Friday night, and shot down by Iron Dome, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz warned Saturday that at the current rate, Israel will soon have to once again enter Gaza to destroy Hamas, the Islamist terrorist group which currently controls the territory. “In the last year or two there has been an improvement in the security situation, fewer rockets have been fired at Israel and fewer Israelis have been injured,” noted Steinitz. “But if the trickle of rockets from Gaza continues, we’ll have no choice but...

    Opinions Range From "Don´t Expel Arafat" To "Smash The Entire P.A." IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee today that the recent focus on Arafat is actually strengthening him. Farkash warned, in the name of all Israel's security bodies, that expelling Arafat would "unite all the PA organizations on both sides and will increase terrorism." Farkash further said that Abu Mazen's main obstacle is Arafat, who is "sticking his hands everywhere, including encouraging terror." Farkash confirmed, in this connection, the indications that Arafat is funding the Al-Aqsa terrorist group. MK Ehud Yatom...
