The Jerusalem Post has another

The Jerusalem Post has another worthwhile columnist in Caroline Glick. Here Glick describes the “messianic” war waged by the Israeli left against its enemies at the other end of the nationn’s political spectrum, especially the Jewish settlers. According to Glick, this war has been the vehicle through which the left has sought to divert attention from, and even excuse, Palestinian terrorism. As the latest example, she cites the recent face-off between settlers and Israeli security forces near Nablus. Glick claims that the face-off was unnecessary and was orchestrated by Defense Minister Ben-Eliezer in order to renew the left’s war with the right and to placate the dominant pro-Oslo element within Labor that Ben-Eliezer needs to retain his leadership of that party.
