Netanyahu's Brother-in-law Moving to Hebron
The brother-in-law of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Haggi
Ben-Artzi, says he and his family will move to Hebron this week.
Maariv reported Sunday that Ben-Artzi said that he regrets
campaigning for Netanyahu in the last election and described the
Hebron agreement as "a total collapse of the obligations of Bibi
and the Likud to the voter, and an unprecedented, outrageous act.
"I am convinced that Bibi continues to believe in the positions he
set forth prior to the elections. However, the question is whether
he has the strength to advance Israeli interests against the
tremendous internal and international pressures being exerted upon
"Bibi must understand that I personally, along with a large portion
of the public, stuck with him through 'fire and water' in the
belief that he would lead to the realization of the Jewish and
Zionist agenda in Israel, and first and foremost in Hebron. We all
hope that Bibi and the government will wake up and begin to tell
Arafat certain things which must be said...
"Bibi must clarify to Arafat that until a major and dramatic change
occurs amongst the Palestinians, we cannot move a single soldier
from any outpost in the country, and certainly not in Hebron."
Arutz-7 Associate News Editor, Yehoshua Mor-Yosef, said to
Ben-Artzi, "You are aware that if the prime minister opts not to
redeploy in Hebron, we are liable to face a war with Arafat."
Ben-Artzi: "This reminds me of the famous words that Churchill said
to Chamberlain. When Chamberlain returned from Munich and said,
"Peace in our time," Churchill told him that whoever is afraid of
war, will get not only war but also disgrace. I am afraid that this
may happen to us. We must make it crystal clear to the Arabs that
there are certain positions from which we will not budge. The Cave
of the Patriarchs and the Matriarchs and Hebron represent our
roots. We will never abandon them. If in the wake of the
Palestinian police shootings last month, we must revamp the entire
agreement, we shall do so, and no threats of war will change our
Law Professor Finds Justification for Assassination
Professor Chaim Ganz, of the Tel-Aviv University Department of Law
has justified the murder of an Israeli prime minister.
"There are certain circumstances under which we could justify such
a murder," he said, in a lecture to his students, "such as if the
prime minister were to make concentration camps for Palestinians."
Students present at Ganz's lecture said that it was clear that he
was referring to a right-wing prime minister. Ganz has refused to
comment on this report, first published Sunday in Maariv.
Iran Producing Nerve Gas
The following article appeared in the October 19, 1996 edition of
the Jordanian publication Al Hayat.
"Western intelligence reports note that Iran will succeed within
one year to manufacture catastrophic nerve gas. If Iran produces
such gas, the Gulf States will be in danger and this will threaten
the stability of the Middle East.
"Knowledgeable sources advise that Western intelligence is
concerned so much by the new information that they have asked for
a serious investigation to be launched in order to determine the
importance of the news.
"The sources point out that in the course of the last years Iran
has invested efforts in order to independently manufacture weapons
of mass destruction. The Iranian activities, which the president of
Iran, Rafsanjani, personally oversees, are advancing in three
areas: nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
"The Iranians have invested up until now several hundreds of
millions of dollars in these projects. Much money was devoted to
the purchase of new technology from the countries of the world in
addition to the productive use of the services of international
"The intelligence reports note that Iran needs several years in
order to produce nuclear weapons. Iran now is at the advance
stages, and has almost succeeded in independently producing 'Sarin'
"[Sarin, developed by the Nazis in the Second World War, is nerve
poisoning gas of organic phosphorus compound. Pure Sarin is
colorless and odorless and is described as 500 times as toxic as
potassium cyanide. Iraqi troops were reported to have used it
during the Iran-Iraqi War (1980-1988) to suppress Kurdish rebels.
As it can be comparatively easily produced considering the deadly
affect, the gas is known as the "poor's nuclear weapon."]
