- My message, to those who respect it, is clear. The Israeli
political leadership has been corrupted from abroad and no one running
for Prime Minister is exempt. And that includes Ariel Sharon above all.
I can understand the widespread celebration of his unprecedented rout of
Ehud Barak. Finally, those elements determined to drag Israel into a suicidal
pact with the PLO have been given a resounding message that the people
have had it with them. As a temporary relief valve this election served
a most therapeutic function. Unfortunately too many people think Sharon's
victory means the war has been won and they are about to be very disappointed
because Sharon will betray them just as much as Barak did. Only the style
- Here's how we got the elections in the first place. On
a Wednesday six weeks ago, Binyamin Netanyahu was in the middle of a lucrative
American speaking tour. There, he met two members of the Council On Foreign
Relations (CFR), George Shultz and Henry Kissinger. In Netanyahu's own
words, they told him the time was right to run for prime minister; a very
noble message except elections weren't planned for another two years.
- Netanyahu then hopped on a plane to Israel, he claimed
to attend a Bat Mitzvah, had a few words with Barak and flew back to America
to continue his lectures. Two days later Barak, who Kissinger and gang
put in power beginning with a New York meeting in May 1995, resigned and
called for elections in which he would remain a candidate.
- Now why would he do such an insane thing unless told
to? He was losing badly in the polls and began the race in a hopeless position.
Then he continued with a campaign guaranteed to get him trounced at the
polls. The CFR determined that it was Sharon's turn to drag Israel into
war. Barak had prepared the path and now Sharon would lead the war. And
the world and its Jews, getting dumber by the day, believe that all these
events will be explained by random actions.
- A few years back I received a phone call from New York
from Joel Bainerman, who was attending an Israeli economic conference at
the Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan. Excited, he said, "I was walking
through a hall and guess who I saw come out of a conference room? Sharon
and Kissinger." Joel told the same story to journalists covering the
conference and at the next morning's press conference Sharon confirmed
the meeting adding that, "In order to achieve peace, concessions will
have to be made." He was asked if he meant territorial concessions
and he refused to answer. Kissinger's talk had moulded the man.
- Meanwhile, I called Sharon's spokesman Raanan Gissen
and asked him what was discussed at the meeting. He replied, "They
met to discuss overall Middle East security issues." I asked why Sharon,
the Infrastructure Minister should be discussing security matters at a
trade conference. He answered, "You're right, of course. They were
discussing economic matters." I persisted, "Why was Sharon meeting
Kissinger in the first place?" The reply was boggling; "Minister
Sharon has met Mr. Kissinger every time he has flown to America since the
end of the Yom Kippur War."
- This was way too much to digest so quickly. I blurted
out, "What do you know about Kissinger's leadership in the Council
On Foreign Relations?" Gissen paused and answered, "Mr. Sharon
has left instructions that this topic will only be discussed when he writes
his diplomatic memoirs."
- Ariel Sharon was born and raised on a radical-Left Mapai
moshav, Kfar Malal. In early 1973 he quit the IDF and formed a political
party, Shlomzion, whose followers were anticipated to be from the Left.
Sharon even invited the extremist Yossi Sarid to join him in the party
leadership. In October of the same year, war broke out and Sharon emerged
the national hero. Now his political career would rise and the CFR decided
that he had to be on their side.
- He met with Kissinger and his proteges in early 1974
and received their power and blessings for a rise to the top, but with
conditions. The first was that he become a mole in the Israeli Right and
that he destroy the Herut movement. He returned to Israel, built up his
party and proposed a united Right wing party to run in the 1977 elections.
He amalgamated the Liberal (Gahal) Party with his own and Herut to create
- The election of the honorable and independent Likud leader
Menachem Begin sent the CFR into a tizzy and Sharon was called on to neutralize
and ultimately remove him. Before that could be done, Begin was outflanked
by Egyptian leader Anwar Sadat and with all the power of the CFR behind
the Egyptian position, Begin relented and withdrew from the entire Sinai
Peninsula. The withdrawal could only proceed because Sharon was leading
it. When one stubborn town, Yamit refused to be obliterated, Sharon sent
in the bulldozers to do the job, one reason he is known as "the bulldozer,"
and a better reason to fear his real policy on uprooting Jewish homes.
- On June 6, 1982, my army unit entered the Lebanon War.
Following a trail of battles, we finally arrived at our position on Jebel
Barauch, high in the Chouf Mountains, 80 km. from the safety of the Israeli
border. We gathered around the tv set for the evening news and we heard
Defence Minister Sharon's lie to Begin that the troops would stop advancing
once they had reached the 40 km. line in Lebanon. We were stunned. The
nation and its Prime Minister were being given a totally false picture
of the war by Sharon. We all asked why and no answer was satisfactory.
- A decade later Joel Bainerman and I spent an afternoon
interviewing Menachem's son, Benny Begin. He was very coy with the facts
we sought but, nonetheless, provided vital testimony. His father's war
had been fought mostly to reverse a deal reached by Kissinger, Rabin and
Syrian President Assad in 1975. Assad wanted Israel off the Golan Heights,
Rabin couldn't deliver so Kissinger came up with a neat idea. Syria wanted
Lebanon just as much, so let's give her it. We'll ignite a civil war and
Israel will allow Syrian troops in to bring peace.
- Benny Begin recalled. "Rabin laughed when he told
this story and I said, 'Why are you so happy, 300,000 people died in that
war?' He smiled and answered. 'Don't worry, it was a good deal.'"
Menachem Begin's goal was to reverse the Middle East of murder organized
by the CFR and Sharon's task was to stop him.
- Benny Begin stressed one point without adding the precise
details we sought; Sharon deliberately ousted his father from office.
- We now recall the 1983 massacre at the Sabra and Shatilla
refugee camps. On a Friday morning, Sharon gave permission for Phalangist
forces to eliminate remaining PLO snipers in the camps. The Phalangists
had been victimized by savage PLO massacres and Sharon must have known
how they would react if given a free hand to operate in the camps. Word
of the massacre reached him by the night but he did not order the Phalangists
removed for two more days. Sharon suffered a temporary career setback for
his negligence but this was the beginning of the end of Menachem Begin.
- Sharon has been a magnificent performer, building on
his deserved reputation as a daring commander, since 1974 he has been the
darling of the Right. And since his rise, the Right has been slowly disintegrating.
When Netanyahu was ordered by his CFR masters to sign the upcoming Wye
Agreement, which gave the PLO more territory than Rabin or Peres ever handed
over, both they and he understood that a huge ploy was needed to prevent
massive protest against the outrage. So Netanyahu appointed Sharon his
Foreign Minister, and barely a week later, Sharon gave his seal of approval
to Wye. How could anyone protest when the militant, darling of the Right
authorized all its clauses?
- Early on during the recent election campaign, numerous
Israeli journalists wrote that Shimon Peres and Sharon were plotting against
Barak. The goal this time, was to have Sharon's buddy Peres replace Barak
as the Labor candidate.
- However, Barak caught on and fought back with the strongest
weapon in his arsenal; Peres's organization of the Rabin assassination.
The far left Meretz Party was about to back a motion led by Yossi Sarid,
to make Peres their candidate for the elections. Their central council
was all ready to approve Peres when according to Yediot Ahronot, "Rabin
sent a messenger to remind the council members about Yitzhak Rabin."
Meretz then changed its mind about Peres. The media speculated that Barak
reminded the Meretz members that Peres snitched on Rabin about an illegal
bank account in 1977 that drove him from office or that Rabin called Peres,
"a relentless conniver," as if those facts weren't known and
that they could turn the party against Peres.
- Despite the Meretz rejection, Peres called out all his
forces, especially in the media, to mount a campaign to replace Barak with
him. Then Barak appeared on a morning radio show on Reshet Bet and said
that if Peres didn't stop his campaign, he was going to talk to the Rabin
family about the assassination. Peres's campaign to replace Barak came
to a grinding halt.
- Every available Saturday afternoon, for over twenty years,
Sharon and Peres meet at Peres's home for what they call "social visits."
At Peres's 70th birthday party, Sharon was placed in the seat of honor
beside him. They are the closest of friends and their "vicious"
rivalry over the years has been brilliantly stage managed.
- Do not be surprised if the happy couple come out of the
closet and into the Knesset. If Sharon has his way, Peres will be his Foreign
Minister. Yes, he knows about Rabin, all the insiders do. So Sharon will
fight any legal action which could bring justice to the memory of Rabin
by trying his real murderers. He'll protect his buddy Shimon with all the
considerable powers he has just received.
- And Israel will go to war under Sharon, not because of
him, he is just the right "hard-line, militant" pawn to justify
bloody violence against the Jewish nation, but because the real powers
who rule this planet have planned it that way all along.
