?The Most Dangerous Man in the Middle East?

It has been the policy of both the Barak and the Sharon governments that there will be no ?international observer force? deployed in the West Bank and Gaza. Yet, on November 9, ´00, Mabat on Channel One reported that Ehud Barak believed that Shimon Peres was behind these proposals.

As of June 20th '01, Shimon Peres, and not Ariel Sharon, controls the ?kitchen cabinet? of Ariel Sharon?s government. This is the group that decides how and when Israel reacts to attacks by Arafat?s terrorists. Note this well ­ Shimon Peres now has veto power over Ariel Sharon.

In 1990, Peres pulled his original "dirty trick", when he schemed with the haredi parties to destroy the unity government of Yitzhak Shamir.

Secret negotiations held in Oslo between members of the PLO and of the Israeli government (Shimon Peres and Mahmoud Abbas) led to a mutual recognition in September 1993. Due to the agreements reached there, in secret and without the knowledge of Yitzhak Rabin, Peres was able to replace the decisions made in Madrid with the de facto agreements made in Oslo. With this dirty trick, Shimon Peres damned the people of Israel (both Arabs and Jews) with the presence of Yasser Arafat and his murderous terror gangs.

During the bloody years since the signing of the Oslo Agreement, Shimon Peres has traveled the world to raise money for the PA. Through his Shimon Peres Center for Peace, he was worked to develop the infrastructure of the PA, to bring in industry and investment money into the PA.

Time and again, Shimon Peres has forced the government of Israel and the Israeli media to avoid any statements that would reflect badly on Yasser Arafat, since it would not look good to embarrass our ?partner for peace?.

It has been the policy of both the Barak and the Sharon governments that there will be no ?international observer force? deployed in the West Bank and Gaza. Yet, on November 9, '00, Mabat on Channel One reported that Ehud Barak believed that Shimon Peres was behind these proposals. On June 12th of this year, the IDF radio reported that Shimon Peres worked with the EU to put just such an observer force in place. Needless to say, the Sharon government was furious with this, and the force has since been removed.

It is the stated policy of Ariel Sharon that there will be no negotiations with the PA while under fire, and yet that is exactly what Peres is working toward, in cooperation with the EU.

The above represents a short list of the machinations of Shimon Peres. This man, who has never been elected to any position in the national government, has once again managed to maneuver himself into a position of power contrary to the will of the people of Israel. The people of Israel specifically voted against a Peres-led government when it voted in the last national elections. Yet, that is exactly what we have today.

Shimon Peres, has dedicated his life to building the State of Palestine for Yasser Arafat. He has worked diligently to ensure that Arafat has the political and financial support of the nations of the world. He has worked to suppress anti-Arafat reporting, and to suppress resistance to his policies by the people of Israel. This man is once again in control of the government of Israel.

Shimon Peres, more than any other, is today the most dangerous man in the Middle East. He has brought Yasser Arafat and his murder gangs within the borders of the State of Israel, and all that has happened since has brought the entire region to the verge of war. All of the warnings of the ?Lebanonization of Israel? by military experts since before the Madrid Conference, studiously ignored by the left-wing press in Israel, have now come true. The non-stop bloody murder of Israelis (and the pillaging and murdering of the Arab population at the hands of Arafat?s many militias) since the signing of the Oslo Agreement can, and should be, laid at the feet of Shimon Peres, and no other.

Every demonstration, every article, every political event, every contact with any Member of Knesset from now on should focus on this man and his deadly policies, with the stated goal of forcing him out of political life. Such a stench must be raised that the Labor Party will have no choice but to disassociate itself from this man.

Ariel Sharon must be forced to go to the Labor Party and demand a replacement for Shimon Peres in his government. This will only happen if the people of the State of Israel make its voice heard in very angry protest against the presence of this man in the Sharon government.

I ask you to keep in mind these words from the personal diary of Moshe Sharett, a former Prime Minister of Israel: "I have stated that I totally and utterly reject [Shimon] Peres and consider his rise to prominence a malignant, immoral disgrace. I will rend my clothes in mourning for the State if I see him become a minister in the Israeli government.?
