      Israel Analysis:

      America is not using maximum pressure on the Palestinians
      If it were Israel would have greater flexibility to make deals
      with the Palestinians. The analogy is this: Because of American
      pressure on Syria, The terrorist group Hezbollah is now doing
      prisoner exchanges with Israel. Since no breakthrough has come
      with the Palestinians one can conclude pressure that is being
      put on Syria in the war on terror is not being applied to Palestine.
      Sharon misunderstands the American war on terror. On September
      11, of this year, Sharon decided to kill Arafat. Would America
      declare its intention to kill terrorists while negotiating a deal with
      them in light of Sept. 11. No, but Sharon in advancing negotiations with
      Hezbollah is not consistant which terrrorists to negotiate with and which
      terrorists to kill. In other words, unlike America he has no
      single terrorist policy. Diaspora silence on the Fence and other Sharon
      acts restrains American foreign policy influence: If American Jewish
      leadership is uncritical of Sharon, it is percieved by Sharon he
      has complete support for all his actions despite the fact that
      American is still attempting to exert pressure on Israel to make
      concessions. Uncritical support with the brave exception of Edgar
      Bronfman, Sr. weakens American foreign policy in the middle east conflict.

      Are the targeted killings helping Arafat? it is no conincidence, I think, that
      the latest Palestinian government is dominated by Fatah and the not the
      other Palestinian political groups. Israel while
      justified in its targeted killings is unwittingly prooving the maxim of one
      man standing at the end of the day and that man is Arafat. The Palestinians
      owe Israel for fighting its own civil war.
