    Minister Uzi Landau (Israel is Our Home) and MK Avi Dichter of opposition party Kadima both expressed support Thursday for a renewal of the "targeted killing" policy against terror chiefs. Dichter also called for striking civilian infrastructures in the terror haven. The "targeted killings" policy is a proactive anti-terror tactic in which the IDF does not wait for terrorists to act against Israel in order to strike at them. Rather, it uses its air superiority in order to pick off known terrorist leaders based on real-time intelligence regarding their whereabouts. Dichter, who is a former Head of the Shin Bet...

    TEL AVIV, Aug 9 (Reuters) - A leading Israeli rightist said on Tuesday he would seek to topple Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as head of the ruling Likud party before the next general election, due in 2006.

Sharon's main primary rival is expected to be Benjamin Netanyahu, an ex-prime minister who resigned as finance minister on Sunday in protest at the plan...

Hubbell, also from the Rose Law Firm, at the time the country's de-facto top law enforcement law officer because Janet Reno in effect was taking her orders from Hubbell. They go over to the estate of Michael Cardoza, who is the son-in-law of Nathan Landau, a big deal Democratic fund-raiser, and Cardoza is also the head of Clinton's legal defense fund. Supposedly, this was all poolside chit chat. Baloney, it was...

    Speaking in a live interview on Israel Radio this morning, Minister Uzi Landau noted that President Bush's statements have no standing as a permanent American commitment. Landau listed a series of previous American presidential commitments that have not been honored - including a promised ban on the deployment of American made Saudi F-15s in Tabuk near Eilat. President Bush made a veiled reference to the limits that there are to his statements during the press conference last night when he remarked that "when you have a government where the person is bigger than the institutions, that government will inevitably fail....
