as
wll
the
problem
of
sick
Russia,
her
army
wthout

and
unpre-
dictable
in
its
actions
 
An
area
of
twenty

holds
the
fate
ofthe
world
in
their
hands
as
the

Yitszak
Rabin
and
most
oth-
ers
inhis
country

a
peacewthout
hate
 
His
dreamwas
a
peace
that
would
bring
investments
and
emloymnt
for
both
Israelis
and
Palestinians,
but
a
tragic
chain
of
eventscreated
a
situation
in
which
a
small
group
of
hot
heads
in
both
campshad
the
power
to
ruin
his
plan
and
bring
both
to
the
brink
of
a
war
that
will
spread
to
Indonesia
 
While
M
 
Rabin
negotiated
for
a
peace
that
would
save
his
people
from
trouble
in
Israel
and
elsewhere,hardline
extremsts

Overnight,
relations
returned
to
where
they
were
before
America
and
Yitszak
Rabin
signed
the
1993peace
accord
 
The
real
gravity
of
the
situation
may
not
be
reported
because
no
government
wishes
to
publicize
thehelplessness
of
law
and
order
police
in
an
urban
war
such
as
the
forces
trained
and
incited
by
Iranplan
to
wage
where
conventional
war
has
failed
 
It
is
the
poorman s
war,
against
which
sophisticated
weapons
are
helpless
 
No
one
took
theAyatollah
seriously
when
he
promsed
an
ever
expanding
holy
war
 
When
the
first
meaningfulpeace
con
ference
was
held
in
Madrid
in
early
1991,
no
one
paid
any
attention
to
the
anti

conference
heldby
Iran,
Libya
and
the
Sudan
It
was
atthe

that

Moderate

Every

was

to
direct
wrath
on

Satan

London s
SUNDAY
TIMES
of
September
29
devoted
a
page
to
what
it
called
Netanyahu s
domna-
tion
by
Americans
 
The
paper s
Jerusalem
correspondent
reported
that
Israel s
securi-

tyadvisers
had
warned
the
prime
mnister
against
opening
the
tunnel
that
had
been
restored
insecret
but
Netanyahuwas
not
listening
 
Instead
heturned
to
a
group
of
American
born
immgrants
and
ideologues
 
They
are
known
as
`the
American
Mafia
The
`mafia
members
have
taken
Israeli
nationality
but
have
little
experience
in
the
blood
soaked
politics
of
the
region
 
This
makes
them
more
reckless
than
locally
edu-cated
counterparts
who
mghthave
urged
caution
.
Senior
among
the
`Americans
is
Dore
Gold,
Netanyahu s
chief
political
adviser
an
economst
who
speaks
Hebrew
wth
astrong
accent

Another
is
David
Bar
Illan
who
was
born
in
Israel
but
lived
more
than
thirty
years
in
 mericaand
only
recently
returned
 
He
is
known
more
for
his
profes-
sional
skill
at
the
piano
than
any
Mddle
Eastern
expertise
 
They
told
Netanyahu
there
could
be
no
harm
n
opening
thetun-
nel
under
a
Moslem
holy
site
 
They
werewrong
 
Last

All
criticism
didnot
come
fromabroad
 
Chem
Shalev,
a
respected
commentator
on
the
daily
Ma-Ariv,
wrote
 
During
the
tradi
tional
100
days
of
grace
since
he
took
office
the
prime
mnister
has
managed
to
over-turn
completely
the
new
Mddle
East
of
his
predecessor,
Shimon
Peres,
and
revive
in
its
placetheold
Mddle

The
interna-

community
is
united
in
its
criticism
ofIsrael,
the
Arab
world,
fiercein
its
hatred,
and
Israelis
and
Palestinians

A
lighteningrod
for
criticism
is
the
staff
that
Netanyahu
hasgathered
around
himNetanyahu
spent
much
of
his

in

He
