Today's (October 26th) Jerusalem Post has an opinion piece which attacks all opponents of the Wye Aid Package as wild and crazy right-wing extremists bent on doing great harm to Israel's security. It mentions by name two of Israel's most intelligent advocates, Yossi Ben-Aharon and Yoram Ettinger. Let me make something perfectly clear, Ettinger and Ben-Aharon know exactly what they are doing and saying. Israel, unfortunately, has become like an alcoholic drug crazed relative. It is our love for Israel that makes good Zionists like Ettinger want to intervene to save her. The addiction to Oslo and the American aid deemed necessary to make it work must be stopped. The Israelis must learn that they can't continue to behave in a self destructive manner and then expect American dollars to rush in and save them from disaster. To continue aid to Israel under these circumstances make us an ENABLER to Israel's dysfunctional policies. As I have said before, Americans should NOT pay for the rope so Israel can hang herself......Bernard J. Shapiro, Editor



The Freeman Center strongly condemns Israeli Prime Minister' Ehud Barak's plans to ethnically cleanse Jews from YESHA. Bernard J. Shapiro, Freeman Center director, noted that throughout history there have been evil men who have sought to eradicate the presence of Jews in their territories. Assyrians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Persians, Catholics, Germans, Egyptians, Syrians, Jordanians, Iraqis, and Palestinian Arabs all tried but failed to destroy the Jews.

Now a new Chamberlain-like ruler, Barak, has joined the ranks of ethnic cleansers. Though democratically elected in Israel, he rules without Zionism, Judaism or morality. He should be reminded of the fate all those before him who have tried to destroy the Jewish people and remove them from their Holy Land. Whether Barak intends to destroy the Jewish people or not can be argued but his actions will certainly lead to that unfortunate end.

I do not believe that my words are incitement. Rather the whole Oslo appeasement process is an incitement against the Jewish people and their right to Eretz Yisrael.....Bernard J. Shapiro, Editor

[Editor's Note: Barak just released 151 more veteran terrorists being help in Israeli prisons. These are the men who murdered and maimed not only Jews but also Arabs and Americans. They will no doubt be of service to Arafat as trainers of a new generation of terrorists. Imagine, if you are able, how the victims of these men must feel as they are released as heroes to the cheers of their fellow Arabs.]


The soothsayer told Caesar to "beware the Ides of March," but he was too wrapped up in his own glory to imagine the possibility of his own demise. The best military/political/strategic analysts of the Freeman Center have estimated Israel's life expectancy to be 30 months. In order to prevent the inevitable destruction of the Jewish state, policy changes must be made within the next 12 months. This is today's Harsh Reality. Averting your eyes and refusing to hear the truth will not prevent this from happening
