Almagor: We Expected Barak to Act on Military Lessons
Israel National News
The Almagor umbrella group of terror-victims organizations said on Sunday that Israel should threaten the Palestinian Authority with unilateral actions if the PA takes unilateral actions. Senior PA negotiator Saeb Erekat had warned that the PA might unilaterally declare a PA state in Judea and Samaria.
Almagor called on the government to flatly reject the words of Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who said that Israel should end what he called its occupation of lands liberated in 1967. Dr. Aryeh Bachrach, a bereaved father from Almagor’s leadership, said, “Of all people, we expected that the defense minister, who has failed in the past in such matters, would act based on the military lessons [of these failures] and not internal political needs.”
