THE UNHOLY TRINITY

Russia apparently flexing its muscles as a Middle East player, has hosted a Hamas delegation after the Palestinians elected the terror organization to run their government. The Russian invitation to terrorists who vow to exterminate Israel has naturally angered Israel: however, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has chosen to take President Vladimir Putin at his word about never harming Israels vital interests. But the Hamas visit and Russia's sale of nuclear know-how to Iran, which also talks about wiping Israel off the map, raise questions about the nature of Russia's links to Israels enemies.

IRAN'S PRESIDENT AHMADINEJAD & ADOLF HITLER

There has been broad international condemnation of the call by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 'to wipe Israel off the map'. At the U.N. in New York, Israel's Ambassador Danny Gillerman has officially urged Secretary General Kofi Annan to initiate the expulsion of Iran from the world body on the grounds that Iran has flagrantly violated the U.N. charter by calling for the destruction of a member state. The latest Iranian threat comes against the backdrop of Tehran's drive to produce nuclear weapons. Israel's Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom has now revealed that Iran may acquire the know-how for producing nuclear weapons within six months.

Three more Israelis were wounded. A short time later, terrorists in another car opened fire a group of boys walking near the settlement of Ali. One youngster was injured. Israel has reacted by closing some main roads to private Palestinian vehicles and reimposing roadblocks and closures. The IDF is also stepping up arrests and targeted killing of terrorists.

Bush? After supplying nuclear aid to Iran, Russia is now selling sophisticated weapons to Syria - is this simply to make a fast ruble or does President Vladamir Putin have something else in mind?

ANTI-SEMITISM DIDN’T DIE IN AUSCHWITZ

The Knesset has marked the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in 1945. One million two hundred thousand people were murdered in Auschwitz, most of them Jews. After members of the House, Holocaust survivors and foreign diplomats stood in a moment of silence, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon took the rostrum. Sharon charged the Allies knew the Nazis were exterminating the Jews of Europe but did not lift a finger to stop it. He accused the Allied powers of bombing targets near Auschwitz, but refusing to bomb the gas chambers or the railway that was transporting 10,000 Jews daily to their executions. Sharon declared that Israel has learned the lesson; she must depend only upon herself and will never give up its right to self-defense.

TWILIGHT ZONE

In the Gaza Strip, five IDF soldiers were killed and another six were injured, one critically, when Palestinian terrorists tunneled under an Israeli position and detonated more than a ton of explosives. The blast totally demolished the post which was manned by Israeli Muslim Bedouins who serve in the Desert Reconnaissance Battalion. Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz held urgent consultations with the IDF Chief of Staff and Shabak Security Director and then ordered a series of localized retaliatory actions. For the first time since Arafat’s death, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has criticized the Palestinian leadership for not doing enough to halt the violence.At the same time, Analyst David Essing believes the latest tunnel attack will spur the IDF into finding a high-tech solution to the Palestinian use of tunneling as a tactic of warfare.
