Israel: January 25, 2005


Palestinian terrorist groups are demanding Israeli concessions in return for a cease fire. They want Israel to stop military operations in Palestinian territory and the release of many imprisoned terrorists. If this were done, the terrorist groups would regain some key members, and be able to weaken the Israeli informer network in the Palestinian territories. The terrorist groups could then build up their strength and renew their attacks on Israel. This is the basic problem. While the new Palestinian government wants peace, in order to bring some economic relief to the Palestinian people, they are unwilling to go to war with the Palestinian terrorists. And the terrorists will offer only a temporary truce, their primary goal remains the destruction of Israel. Israelis cannot forget that.
