Appease and inherit the wind.

Now that Jimmy Carter is doing what he does best, consorting with the enemy, Phyllis Chesler republished her 2006 indictment of appeasement, The Price of Appeasement

I wouldn’t change a word of it.

  1. Olmert Offers Abbas 64% of Judea-SamariaPrime Minister Ehud Olmert has offered the Palestinians 64 percent of the West Bank as part of a future peace agreement, London-based Asharq Al-Awsat reported Wednesday. According to the report, Olmert told PA President Mahmoud Abbas that the Palestinians could “forget about territory west of the security fence.” The prime minister also presented Abbas with several offers regarding Jerusalem. One of these would have Israel maintaining control over east Jerusalem and holy sites, but allowing Palestinians to enter those sites. On Tuesday Shas upped its threat to leave Olmert’s government over the Jerusalem issue, with the party’s No. 2 – Religious Services Minister Yitzhak Cohen – saying that even “creating an atmosphere” that could lead to Jerusalem’s division was a red line for the party.

    What a DONKEY-HOLE!

    Olmert should be declared a TERRORIST and removed for being a TREASONOUS KGB AGENT.

  2. More Iranian Threats; Israel’s Reacts

    Iran’s Deputy commander-in-chief Mohammad Reza Ashtiani said in a speech today that if Israel attacks Iran’s nuclear reactors, it will be ‘wiped off the map of the universe’, echoing the many similar threats uttered by Iran’s president, Ahmadinejad.

    Israel has now requested the hook-up to the American BMEWS for early warning to defend itself against Iranian missile attack. The system operates from three global centers – the US Thule Air Base in Greenland, where the 12th Space Warning Squadron is located; the Clear Air Force Station in Alaska and the British RAF long-range radar station at Fylingdales, Yorkshire, in England.

    This is the third time Israel has been connected to the BMEWS. The first was in 1991 before the first Gulf War and the second in 2003 before the US invasion of Iraq. US military sources interpret the request as signifying Israel’s sense of the need to prepare for an Iranian missile attack in the not-too-distant future.

    Such an attack could develop from a US or Israeli strike against Iran, or any war situation involving Israel, Syria or Hizballah. Tehran might also stage a pre-emptive strike if early intelligence was received of an impending US or Israeli attack on Iran, Syria or Hizballah.

    These sources stressed that Iran could even decide to lash out against Israel after the event in reprisal for an American assault, not necessarily on its nuclear sites but on Revolutionary Guards bases involved in directing, arming and training militias for attacks on US troops in Iraq. In such a contingency, Tehran could decide to hit back at US bases and strategic sites in the Persian Gulf and Middle East at large, including Israel.

    The hook-up to the US early warning system will give Israel a better chance to prepare its Arrow and Patriot missile defense systems – and the US to prepare its own Israel-based Patriot batteries – in time to ward off an Iranian missile attack. The BMEWS would start beaming data on an incoming Iranian missile at the launching stage and before it is airborne.

    American military sources have no doubt that if an Iranian missile barrage targets Tel Aviv, Israel will counter with a missile attack on Tehran or Damascus.
