Another slick Rice illusion – re: North Korea

We keep reading and hearing reports in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, FOX and CNN to the effect that the U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, having met with Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas is awaiting the positions of Hamas and Fatah in their transition into a Unity Government. Early reports indicate that this is irrelevant because Hamas has already re-stated their position of NOT accepting Israel on any terms. Abbas (aka Abu Mazen) said that “Israel need not talk to Hamas and only he will talk to Israel.” (1 & 2) Presumably, Abbas will talk-the-talk that the State Department will put on his tongue and the State Department will call that “sufficient”.

Rice and the unholy Quartet (U.S. State Department, the European Union, U.N. and Russia, keeps repeating their mantra that Hamas must accept all prior agreements the PLO made with Israel Given the incontrovertible fact that ALL of those prior agreements were broken either by Yassir Arafat and later by Abbas – to what exactly is Hamas supposed to adhere? The language embodied in those agreements or the broken agreements following their signing?

Hamas could easily accept the actual facts as written in the now broken agreements and, thereby, meet the convoluted terms of Rice, the Quartet and then accepted by the current consummate fool of a Prime Minister – Ehud Olmert.

Think about Oslo, for example. Almost all, if not every line of the Oslo Accords was broken by Arafat within hours or days of its signing September 13, 1993 on the White House lawn. That failed agreement snaked through the secret labyrinth of Rabin, Peres, and Beilin machinations with Norway and other nations playing a secret role. That agreement shattered like the broken glass of “Kristallnacht”. It was formatted so poorly that it was designed to shatter like glass and thus be acceptable to Arafat – according to the planning by Shimon Peres and Yossi Beilin.

For Rice to demand that Hamas and Fatah keep such a broken set of agreements is a badly conceived sham. When you review the so-called agreements of Oslo 1 and 2, you can see that, with cold deliberation, Arafat with his advisor Mahmoud Abbas, broke every line, every jot and tittle, of the Oslo Accords. In essence, there is no Agreement in the Oslo Accords and, in practice, there never was such an Agreement. But, if Rice can string together some nonsense words like: “Hamas recognizes Israel but doesn’t see her”, would that allow the donor money of American tax-payers’ dollars to flow once again?

When one sees the thousands of convicted terrorists released in other agreements, here too, the Agreements were broken from day one as most of the terrorists went back to their old units to begin terror again and/or to teach terror. Yet, we see Olmert, at the behest of Rice, contemplating the release of more than a thousand imprisoned terrorists, including Marwan Bargouti who is serving 5 life sentences for murder. All of the tried and convicted Muslim Arab terrorists either have Jewish blood on their hands or were convicted of attempting the murder of Jews.

Once again the Agreements with Muslim Arab Palestinian or other Arabs generally are non-starters. The pretense by Rice and/or the Quartet that there were binding standing agreements that were honored is merely a sham.

It has been repeated that Rice is willing to hold talks only with Abbas, despite the fact that he is now to be an organic part of Hamas under the guise of a Unity Government. Translate that to mean that Rice and the State Department with approval by President Bush, will be funneling millions into Fatah with a money tunnel branching off to Hamas – now called the “Unity Government”. On January 31, 2007 Bush oversaw a gift to Hamas of $86 million American tax-payers’ dollars. (3)   Did Bush forget that several weeks ago, Abbas called on supporters in his Fatah faction to turn their guns on Israel instead of fellow Palestinians? (4) This was only small change compared to the hundreds of millions to be spent on training and equipping the 60,000+ man army for the Hamas/Fatah Unity Government.

Translate that to mean that Bush has taken on the obligation in the name of all Americans to fund the Palestinian terrorist army long into the future. Bush and Rice have already begun funding and arming Arafat’s old guard (Force 17). Remember that in Khartoum February 1973 the leader of Arafat’s Force 17 commanded the Black September Terror operatives when they executed U.S. Ambassador Cleo Noél, U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission George Moore and the Belgian charges d’affaires, Guy Eid – on orders recorded from Yassir Arafat. (5)

All of this was revealed to the State Department but, they kept on paying Arafat to maintain his Army of Terrorists and his Force 17 Presidential Guard. In effect, the Arabist U.S. State Department became co-conspirators in the murders of Ambassador Noél, Moore and Eid by protecting Arafat with silence. Whoever was responsible in the State Department, all of them, should have gone to jail as accessories to murder and for treason

Come on, Ms. Rice, we are not that stupid to ignore this trick…again….or are we?

Even if a Palestinian State is created with false, unenforceable agreements how long before all agreements are broken and Israel is hit by a saturation missile attack from Judea and Samaria which under control of those “good ole boys” the formerly-imprisoned terrorists who insist that they are Palestinians and should own ALL of Palestine. Remember, they claim ALL of what was British Mandatory Palestine. Their maps claim for a future State cover ALL of the Jewish State of Israel – which seems consistent with State Department desires since 1947.

Let us conclude with what has been told to President Bush by scholars who specialize in Muslim behavior, tradition and further supported by what he has learned in Iraq and Afghanistan. Moreover, he has a resident scholar in Condoleezza Rice who advised him earlier as an expert in Russia which had Muslim nations as connected nations.

What they all know is that Muslims can make agreements, treaties, even business arrangements – all of which can and often will be abandoned with or without notice. This is their obligation to the Koran and Islam which they are taught from birth to death. Agreements with infidels (non-believers in Islam) must also follow the way of Mohammed as specified in the “Hadith” (oral teachings) which includes making false, short term agreements with non-believers for the benefit of Islam and Allah.

They may lie, kill, cheat, break any and all agreements if the Muslim believes it inures to the growth and spread of Islam. In fact, agreements with “infidels” must be broken at a time not to exceed 10 years. (This is based upon the Hudaibiya Treaty which Mohammed made as a peace treaty with the Jewish tribe of Qurayza. He broke it when he was militarily stronger, returned, killed the men of the Qurayza by beheading them, sold the women and children into slavery. Shortly after the Oslo Accords were signed Yassir Arafat, speaking in Arabic to his followers, said Oslo would be like the Hudaibiya Treaty – null and void in 10 years.)

If a Muslim swears an oath on a Koran, he is swearing to NOT follow that oath IF it is any law or agreement with an “infidel”. Therefore, such agreements with Israel or America are “null and void” – even as they are being committed to by America or Israel. Signatures on documents may as well be signed in disappearing ink because both the signature and the meaning fades in moments.

The Muslims will seem to keep the spirit and the specifics as long as it benefits them and Islam. The two most obvious dupes (or dopes) are the Americans and Israelis. American soldiers have learned this in Iraq as they train Muslims to fight alongside them, only to find they have either informed the terrorists of where the soldiers will be or the Iraqi soldiers might shoot their American partners in the back on joint patrols.

Rice, Bush and the State Department know all of this and yet they foist these agreements on Israel. Not exactly a vote a confidence in the ethics and trustworthiness of an ally who puts you at risk knowingly.

Currently, Ms. Rice has tripped over to Jordan where she will meet King Abdullah of Jordan, along with Saudi representatives. Presumably, they are planning some method to legitimize the coming Unity Government of Hamas and Fatah previously cooked up in Mecca, no doubt, with State Department planning.

I can hardly wait to see how the lies are dressed up as “peace-making” – including the release of donor funds to Unified Terrorists, Inc. and including the release of those convicted Terrorists.


Please note the following paragraphs reprinted from our article of February 18th, entitled: “RICE GIVES NORTH KOREA A PASS” These particular paragraphs do not deal with North Korea, but with the Hamas and Fatah “Talks” in Mecca under Saudi invitation”:

“Well, Hamas and Abbas just had “Talks” in Mecca under Saudi invitation and after much self-congratulations of creating a Unity Government, Hamas came back with new demands. Rice, at the behest of her Boss, is desperate for anything that looks like a set of Peace Talks between Hamas/Fatah and Olmert’s weak and about-to-fall government….

“After months of bloody virtual civil war between Hamas and Fatah, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya submitted his resignation to assist in the sham formation of a Unity Government and Abbas immediately asks him to form that new government. Their “trick” is to open up the door for the U.S. and E.U. to resume the paying donor monies in the billions to the Muslim Arab Palestinians because this is a “new” government…. (6)…

“However, none of this sham agreement requires Fatah and Hamas to honor the prior mandated obligations, namely, recognize Israel, cease terror and no agreement to the returns of relatives, of so-called refugees to Israel, numbering in the millions…..

“The Mecca deal brokered by the Saudi King Abdullah between the Fatah and Hamas was DOA (Dead On Arrival) but Rice, Olmert and Livni are trying to resuscitate a corpse and make it walk around in a charade of good health. Haniya of Hamas has said openly that he will not recognize Israel’s right to exist; he won’t disarm; nor will he accept any of the previous agreements such as Oslo…he will “respect” them. Period.”

About the Author



Manny Winston, my late husband, flew from Chicago to Israel to volunteer during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. He arrived with US secretary of state Henry Kissinger’s first ceasefire on October 21; I followed on October 30th.

Manny was picking grapefruit at Kibbutz Dalia when his friend, the artists, Sol Baskin called with a permit to enter the war zone. They drove to meet Gen. Ariel “Arik” Sharon at the Suez Canal. “Shalom” Baskin was part of the Mahal volunteers from America to the IDF, and a commissioned officer in Mahal. He was Arik’s commanding officer during the 1948 War of Independence, and they remained friends.

Manny brought his two Leica cameras and photographed an outstanding photo exposé on October 29 and 30. He saw and smelled the “killing fields” He met with Sharon, the young soldiers who had survived the destroyed tanks and he saw how the blown tank turret, flipped upside down destroyed the lives of those brave souls inside.

Manny did see these effects and, because he was a true Renaissance man, a graphic thinker who was a painter, sculptor and political analyst, he envisioned a solution to the weak point of the tank. He described a technique to conquer that weakness to Sharon, who sent him to Maj.-Gen. Israel Tal, the developer of the famed Merkava tank.

Manny’s “leap of imagination” created what became “Blazer” or “Reactive” Armor. He designed rectangles of hollow metal boxes with an explosive charge inside. These ‘so-called’ “skirts” were placed around the neck of the tank turret so that when hit, the explosive charge therein would push the incoming ballistic missile out, thereby saving the tank and its crew. This was compatible with the primary goal of Gen. Tal’s Merkava tanks: Defense of the Tank Crew.

That, along with speed, maneuverability, effective shooting and protection against damaging desert sand, were what made the Merkava “The Tank a Jewish Mother Would Love,” as Manny called it.

He also designed a better bridge for crossing the Canal – easier to carry and assemble, and less susceptible to the huge holes the tanks had already created on the day’s existing bridge.

Manny continued to submit creative concepts for defense and offense to Israel’s military industries – for which he received his Israeli citizenship and security clearance. Many of his concepts and ideas were adopted throughout the years. He never asked for credit or remuneration but even today, I see his concepts being used, either in action or in military articles. Someday I hope to publish the “WINSTON DEFENSE DESIGNS,” either online or in a book – a very big book, with his original drawings.

The Yom Kippur War was a seminal turning point in Israel’s history. We did win. It was a miracle, given the forces mounted against us, in number and backed up the Soviet Union.

We have 40 mounted color photographs by Emanuel A. Winston, ready to show at a traveling or permanent exhibition, which will enhance our appreciation of what our men and generals went through and achieved.

The Yom Kippur War was also a seminal turning point in the lives of the Winston family. It was our second trip to Israel. We had tried to make Aliyah in 1962 but didn’t succeed. I made Aliyah on November 7, 1979. Manny died on June 12, 2012, and is now buried on the Mount of Olives.

I sold the home he built in Highland Park, Illinois, in August 2012, and brought his manuscripts and published papers, to the home I built in Israel in 1992. Two of our sons and their families also live in the Jewish state.

My heartfelt message for you, the reader, is to invite all my friends, family and Internet friends to come to Israel. This is where a Jew can be truly Jewish.
