sydney indymedia - Palestine update
A selection of several informative articles, including another excellent Avnery piece, which provide insight and perspective on the 'Road map' and the botched Rantisi assasination. The Israeli government is a junta (according to Avnery) which is deliberately sabotaging the peace process against the wishes of the Israeli people themselves. On the other hand, Sharon and the generals cannot eliminate Hamas, nor has the US and Israel any leverage on Hamas. It is beginning to look as though the Intifada has singlehandedly fought the best efforts of Israel & the US to a standstill.
