Rice's puppet government

WorldNetDaily reported late last night that US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice orchestrated the expulsion of Jews by the IDF from five new 'outposts' that were set up in Judea and Samaria over the Succot holiday. If Israeli Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert was opposed, he certainly did not say so. But Rice did not entrust the task to him - she did it herself in coordination with the 'Palestinians.' Funny, but I don't recall seeing Condi on any Knesset slate in the last election.

The evacuation the past few days of five makeshift Jewish communities in the West Bank was micromanaged behind the scenes by the U.S. government, WND has learned.

Israeli police, backed by the Israel Defense Forces, clashed in recent days with Jewish activists and West Bank Jewish residents while destroying the five small outposts the government deemed illegal, because construction was not coordinated with proper housing authorities. The outposts, erected alongside existing legal West Bank Jewish communities, were first built Sept. 30, during the Jewish Succot holiday.

Israel strictly enforces regulations against Jewish building in the West Bank while hundreds of thousands of illegal Palestinian outposts have been constructed the past few years. That includes massive apartment complexes and refugee camps on hundreds of acres of land in Jerusalem owned by the Jewish National Fund, a Jewish nonprofit that uses donor funds to purchase property for Jewish settlement.

Four of the five new makeshift West Bank Jewish communities were evacuated by Israeli forces last week. Meanwhile, police are still struggling to uproot the final outpost, named Shvut Ami, Hebrew for "Return of My People." Activists and police authorities clashed yesterday at the community, located near the Jewish town of Kedumim.


Palestinian and Israeli diplomatic sources speaking to WND today said the evacuation of the five West Bank communities was heavily micromanaged by officers of the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem. [That 'consulate' is sometimes referred to as the US embassy to the 'Palestinians.' It is located in 'east Jerusalem' just over the old border. CiJ]

One Palestinian official said that at one point last week, Palestinian Authority officials were calling into the U.S. consulate several times per hour to report on the Israeli evacuation.

"We don't credit [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert for destroying these illegal outposts. This was done under the strict orders of the U.S. government," said a Palestinian official involved in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.


A senior Palestinian negotiator stated Rice singled out Jerusalem areas as becoming part of a future Palestinian state and told his negotiating team she would publicly blame Israel for the failure of next month's U.S.-sponsored summit in Maryland if the Jewish state didn't agree to evacuate eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods.

Rice's comment were followed by an Olmert speech in which the Israeli prime minister hinted he would withdraw from parts of Jerusalem by asking whether it was "necessary" to retain certain Arab communities.

"Was it necessary to also add the Shuafat refugee camp, Sawakra, Walaje and other villages and define them as part of Jerusalem? On that, I must confess, I am not convinced," stated Olmert, speaking at a special Knesset session to mark the sixth anniversary of the assassination of former government minister Rehavam Ze'evi, who drew up the 1967 map.
It's well past time for Israelis to take to the streets to get rid of the puppet government that Condi Rice has acquired in Jerusalem. But don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen. Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu have more important things on their minds. Like their ministries and Knesset seats.
