Caption transcript for Age of Terror Continued: “Counter Terrorism” (5/12)

  • 00:29 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:30 WE'VE BEEN DISCUSSING THIS UPCOMING WITHDRAWAL FROM SETTLEMENTS,
  • 00:35 SETTLEMENTS IN GAZA AND THEN UP >>NORTH IN THE NORTHERN SAMARIA
  • 00:41 OR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE WEST BANK.
  • 00:43 A LOT OF SETTLEMENTS SURROUND >>GAZA DOWN ON THE SOUTHERN COAST
  • 00:48 ON THE BORDER WITH EGYPT, THERE ARE 8500 SETTLERS.
  • 00:51 UP NORTH IT'S ABOUT 400 IN 4 DIFFERENT SETTLEMENTS.
  • 00:56 YOU KNOW, WE GIVE BOTH SIDES ON >>THIS PROGRAM.
  • 01:00 ISRAEL IS A DEMOCRACY JUST LIKE >>THE UNITED STATES.
  • 01:03 THEY HAVE LEFT WING AND RIGHT WING SPEAKERS ON A SUBJECT
  • 01:07 AND THEY ALL HAVE A POINT OF VIEW, I'LL SAY THAT.
  • 01:08 WHEN WE TOOK OUR CAMERAS TO WASHINGTON D.C. AND STOOD IN >>FRONT OF THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL,
  • 01:13 WE WANTED TO DO A MAN ON THE STREET PROGRAM,
  • 01:17 TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT CONDITIONS >>HERE OR WHATEVER.
  • 01:20 I TELL YOU, WE HAD TO GO OUT AND >>BEG THEM TO COME ON CAMERA.
  • 01:24 WE STOOD AROUND FOR 2 HOURS; WE MUST HAVE GOTTEN 8 OR 10 PEOPLE.
  • 01:28 YOU TRY THAT ON A JERUSALEM >>STREET, YOU NEARLY NEED POLICE >>TO HOLD BACK THE LINES.
  • 01:34 EVERYBODY'S GOT AN OPINION AND >>WANTS TO EXPRESS IT.
  • 01:36 BUT, IN OUR LAST 2 PROGRAMS WE VIEWED THE RIGHT SIDE, THE SIDE THAT IS AGAINST THE WITHDRAWAL.
  • 01:46 THEY DON'T WANT TO GIVE AN INCH >>OF LAND TO THE ARABS,
  • 01:50 THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIANS AND THEY WERE OUTSPOKEN ABOUT THAT.
  • 01:56 ON THIS PROGRAM WE'RE GOING TO >>HEAR THE LEFT WING.
  • 01:58 OUR FIRST GUEST, DR. YOSSI >>BEILIN IS A FAMOUS LEFT-WINGER.
  • 02:04 HE'S THE FATHER OF THE OSLO PEACE PROCESS STARTED IN '93 GONE DEFUNCT 7-8 YEARS LATER.
  • 02:13 BUT, HE STILL HOLDS TO THE SAME THEORY.
  • 02:15 DR. BEILIN SAYS GIVE THEM MORE LAND, TAKE OUT MORE SETTLEMENTS
  • 02:20 AND HE HASN'T CHANGED HIS TUNE >>AT ALL.
  • 02:25 WE ASKED HIM, YES FINE, BUT WILL THIS DISENGAGEMENT ACTUALLY WORK?
  • 02:31 THE QUESTION IS WHETHER IT WILL TAKE PLACE
  • 02:33 AND I BELIEVE THAT PRIME MINISTER SHARON
  • 02:37 IS VERY MUCH COMMITTED TO THE WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA.
  • 02:42 WHATEVER HIS INTENTION IS AND WHAT MOTIVATION IS,
  • 02:46 STILL IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR >>HIM TO WITHDRAW
  • 02:48 AND I BELIEVE THAT IT WILL BECOME A MATTER OF FACT.
  • 02:51 ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF THE >>WITHDRAWAL, IT DEPENDS VERY MUCH >>ON THE DAY AFTER.
  • 02:57 WHAT IS THE INTENTION TO DO AFTER THE WITHDRAWAL.
  • 03:00 IF THE WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA WILL >>BE GAZA FIRST, GAZA LAST,
  • 03:05 IT MIGHT BECOME A DISASTER, GOD FORBID.
  • 03:08 BECAUSE THE SITUATION THEM MIGHT BE TO PUT GAZA IN LIKE A PRISON
  • 03:13 WHEREBY THE PALESTINIANS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO WORK IN ISRAEL,
  • 03:17 TO CROSS ISRAEL IN ORDER TO GET TO THE WEST BANK, WHICH IS THE OTHER SIDE OF THEIR TERRITORIES,
  • 03:24 THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WILL REMAIN >>LOW AND EVEN WILL BECOME LOWER.
  • 03:29 THE POVERTY LINE WILL BE BIGGER >>AND EVENTUALLY
  • 03:33 THE SITUATION THERE WILL BE MORE >>FRUSTRATING THAN TODAY.
  • 03:37 IF ON THE OTHER HAND, ONE CREATES A POLITICAL HORIZON
  • 03:42 AND TALKS ABOUT THE CONTINUATION >>OF THE PROCESS
  • 03:44 IN ORDER TO GET TO THE PERMANENT >>SOLUTION AFTER SO MANY YEAR,
  • 03:48 WE PROMISED THE PALESTINIANS A >>PERMANENT SOLUTION IN 5 YEARS WHEN IT WAS 93, 94
  • 03:53 AND WE ARE NOW IN 2005 AND THERE IS NO HORIZON WHATSOEVER FOR A >>PERMANENT SOLUTION,
  • 03:59 BUT IF BOTH SIDES WORK TOGETHER >>TOWARDS A PERMANENT SOLUTION THROUGH THE FAMOUS ROADMAP
  • 04:05 OR THROUGH ANOTHER VEHICLE, THEN I BELIEVE THAT THE WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA
  • 04:10 MIGHT BE A VERY IMPORTANT PRECEDENT FOR THE WEST BANK.
  • 04:14 DR. BEILIN IS AFTER WHAT HE CALLS A PERMANENT SOLUTION, REAL PEACE
  • 04:19 AND OF COURSE, HE'S VERY LENIENT >>TOWARDS GIVING AWAY LAND.
  • 04:26 HE REMINDS ME IN A WAY OF WHEN >>WE INTERVIEWED FORMER PRIME MINISTER SHIMON PERES
  • 04:31 WHO TAKES ABOUT THE SAME LINE, WILLING TO TRUST THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 04:36 HOW, WE ASKED DR. BEILIN, CAN YOU REALLY ACHIEVE A REAL AND LASTING PEACE?
  • 04:44 I THINK THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT >>THING IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA
  • 04:48 IS TO SIT TOGETHER, THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, THE PALESTINIAN GOVERNMENT
  • 04:53 AND TO TALK ABOUT THE WAY TO CONTINUE.
  • 04:56 THERE MIGHT BE A KIND OF A COLLISION COURSE
  • 04:59 IF MR. SHARON SAYS I WANT ONLY >>ANOTHER INTERIM AGREEMENT
  • 05:03 AND MAHMOUD ABBAS IS SAYING I >>NEED ONLY A PERMANENT SOLUTION.
  • 05:07 I'M NOT SURE WHETHER WE HAVE A >>REFEREE IN OUR CAMP.
  • 05:12 I'M NOT SURE WHETHER PRESIDENT BUSH IS READY TO PLAY THIS ROLE.
  • 05:16 I'M NOT SURE WHETHER EUROPE OR >>ANY OTHER PLAYER IS THERE TO >>HELP US IN SOLVING OUR PROBLEM.
  • 05:25 BUT, I AM SURE THAT THERE IS A SOLUTION.
  • 05:27 I AM SURE THAT IF BOTH SIDES ARE >>SERIOUS, THEY CAN FIND A PERMANENT AGREEMENT
  • 05:34 AND I THINK IT IS AROUND THE CORNER.
  • 05:36 SO THE QUESTION FOR ME IS NOT WHETHER THERE IS A READINESS ON BOTH PARTIES
  • 05:43 TO GET TOWARDS A PERMANENT SOLUTION EITHER DIRECTLY
  • 05:47 AND THEN IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING >>LIKE THE GENEVA INITIATIVE,
  • 05:51 WHICH WE INITIATED ABOUT A YEAR >>AND A HALF AGO
  • 05:54 OR THROUGH A VERY SHORT INTERIM >>AGREEMENT,
  • 05:57 WHICH WILL HAVE A DEADLINE AND >>WHICH WILL ALSO REFER TO THE GRAND DESIGN
  • 06:05 OR THE GUIDELINES FOR THE PERMANENT SOLUTION.
  • 06:08 AS FAR AS THE PALESTINIANS ARE CONCERNED, JERUSALEM REMAINS AN >>IMPORTANT BARGAINING CHIP.
  • 06:14 IN ORDER FOR ANY KIND OF PERMANENT PEACE TO HAPPEN,
  • 06:18 THEY DEMAND THAT THIS CITY BE THEIR CAPITAL.
  • 06:21 WE GAVE UP JERUSALEM A LONG TIME AGO.
  • 06:24 IF YOU WANT TO GO TO EAST >>JERUSALEM TO SOME OF THE REFUGEE >>CAMPS THERE,
  • 06:30 YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED, ALTHOUGH IT IS UNDER THE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY.
  • 06:36 NO ISRAELI GOES THERE. NO TOURIST IS GOING THERE.
  • 06:40 THE MUNICIPAL BUREAUCRACY DOESN'T EVEN DARE TO GO THERE AND COLLECT TAXES,
  • 06:48 MUNICIPAL TAXES OR TO COLLECT THEIR GARBAGE.
  • 06:50 I MEAN, THIS IS THEORETICALLY >>PART OF UNITED JERUSALEM UNDER THE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY FOREVER
  • 06:58 WHILE IN REALITY IT HAS NEVER BEEN PART OF ISRAEL
  • 07:03 AND I BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE SPEAK >>ABOUT JERUSALEM,
  • 07:06 WE HAVE TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT THERE ARE 220,000 PALESTINIANS,
  • 07:12 WHO DO NOT WANT TO BE ISRAELI CITIZENS
  • 07:15 AND WHO ARE PART OF THIS THREAT ON THE FUTURE OF THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 07:20 NOW, BY GIVING UP ON ALL THE EASTERN NEIGHBORHOODS OF JERUSALEM
  • 07:25 WE CAN HAVE A BIG JERUSALEM, WHICH HAS A JEWISH MAJORITY FOREVER.
  • 07:34 IF I'M SPEAKING ABOUT THE GENEVA INITIATIVE,
  • 07:36 WHICH IS AN INITIATIVE AGREED BY BOTH MAINSTREAMS, PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS,
  • 07:44 WE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THE WAILING WALL AS PART OF THE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY,
  • 07:50 WE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THE JEWISH QUARTER IN THE OLD CITY AS PART >>OF THE JEWISH SOVEREIGNTY,
  • 07:56 WHILE THE TEMPLE MOUNT OR WHAT >>THEY CALL HARAM AL-SHARIF
  • 08:01 WILL BE UNDER PALESTINIAN SOVEREIGNTY,
  • 08:03 BUT EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE THE FULL RIGHT TO VISIT EACH SACRED PLACE
  • 08:09 AND NOBODY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO DIG IN THESE PLACES IN ORDER >>NOT TO ENDANGER THEM.
  • 08:15 ON A RECENT PROGRAM WE TALKED TO >>SETTLERS WHO ARE ADAMANT
  • 08:18 THAT THE LAND BELONGED TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 08:21 THERE IS A BIBLICAL REASON THAT >>THEY CLAIM
  • 08:23 TO MAINTAIN POSSESSION OF THE LAND GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD.
  • 08:28 THIS IS WHERE OUR KINGS RULED.
  • 08:32 THIS IS WHERE OUR PROPHETS PROPHESIED
  • 08:34 AND THIS IS WHERE WE WILL >>CONTINUE TO BUILD AND RECREATE >>JEWISH LIFE.
  • 08:40 WHAT I'M SAYING TO THESE PEOPLE
  • 08:41 THAT WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME IS MY CHILDREN
  • 08:44 AND WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, IF >>THEY GOT SOME MESSAGE FROM GOD,
  • 08:46 IT'S NICE, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY CAN ENFORCE ON ALL OF >>US A SITUATION
  • 08:52 OF AN ONGOING WAR HERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND WITH ALL DUE RESPECT TO THE BELIEVERS,
  • 08:59 I'M ALSO A BELIEVER, I AM A GREAT BELIEVER IN THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL,
  • 09:04 I AM A GREAT BELIEVER IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 09:06 I'M A GREAT BELIEVER IN PEACE AND I BELIEVE AS A ZIONIST
  • 09:09 THAT OUR MISSION IS TO LIVE HERE >>AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE >>MIDDLE EAST WITH OUR NEIGHBORS
  • 09:16 RATHER THAN TO FIGHT WITH THEM >>FOREVER.
  • 09:19 I MEAN, THEY ARE ALWAYS EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD,
  • 09:22 PEOPLE WHO GOT SOME MESSAGES FROM ANY GODS.
  • 09:25 IF THEY'RE BECOMING A MAJORITY, >>TOUGH LUCK!
  • 09:29 BUT THANK HEAVEN THEY ARE NOT A >>MAJORITY, THEY ARE A MINORITY
  • 09:33 AND THEY HAVE TO OBEY TO THE DECISIONS OF THE MAJORITY
  • 09:36 AND THE MAJORITY IN ISRAEL WANTS >>TO LIVE AND IS NOT READY TO SACRIFICE THE NEXT GENERATION
  • 09:44 BECAUSE OF VERY IMPORTANT GRAVES >>OF OUR ANCESTORS.
  • 09:50 ONE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT IN THE BIBLE, IN THE KORAN, IN >>THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 09:58 OR WHATEVER, IN ORDER TO SOLVE >>OUR PROBLEMS.
  • 10:01 WE ARE 2 PEOPLES, PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS.
  • 10:06 MOST OF US ARE NORMAL PEOPLE.
  • 10:08 WE WANT TO RAISE OUR KIDS AND TO >>LIVE IN PEACE.
  • 10:12 WE CAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
  • 10:12 THE QUESTION IS ONLY WHETHER WE >>ARE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND
  • 10:18 THAT IF WE DON'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, WE ARE DOOMED.
  • 10:21 WELL, WE ARE GIVING THE OTHER SIDE ON OUR PROGRAMS ABOUT >>WITHDRAWAL FROM THE SETTLEMENTS.
  • 10:28 THIS IS THE LEFT SIDE, THE SIDE >>THAT THINKS THEY OUGHT TO WITHDRAW,
  • 10:31 THEY OUGHT TO GIVE UP THE LAND >>TO THE PALESTINIANS TO MAKE PEACE.
  • 10:34 THE SO-CALLED LAND FOR PEACE AND DR. BEILIN IS ALMOST AN EXTREMIST ON THIS.
  • 10:41 HE SAYS, THE MORE LAND YOU GIVE >>AWAY, THE MORE PEACE YOU GET.
  • 10:45 BUT, ISRAEL SEEMS TO EXPERIENCE >>TERRORISM WHETHER IT GIVES UP LAND OR NOT
  • 10:51 AND THAT SEEMS TO BE THE RUB.
  • 10:53 I'VE ALWAYS SAID OR OF THE LEVITT LETTER HAS SAID,
  • 10:54 THE MAGIC SOLUTION TO PEACE IN >>WHAT THE NEWSCASTERS CALL THE "MIDDLE EAST",
  • 11:01 THE NORMAL PEOPLE CALL "ISRAEL",
  • 11:02 THE SOLUTION IS TOMORROW MORNING WHEN THE PALESTINIANS WAKE UP,
  • 11:08 THEY DO NOT GO OUT AND TRY TO KILL AN ISRAELI.
  • 11:10 AND THEN THE SAME THING THE NEXT MORNING AND THE SAME THING THE >>MORNING AFTER THAT.
  • 11:14 THERE WILL BE PEACE 1000 YEARS.
  • 11:16 I'VE SAID IT AND SAID IT.
  • 11:17 IF THERE'S ONE PROBLEM IN ISRAEL, IT'S THE MURDERS, THE MURDERS, THE MURDERS.
  • 11:21 THEY'VE GOT TO STOP THE TERRORISM AND THEN PEACE CAN HAPPEN.
  • 11:25 ISRAELIS WANT PEACE, THAT'S ALL THEY WANT.
  • 11:29 WE GOT VERY INTERESTED IN THIS ANGLE AND WE DUG OUT A TERRORISM EXPERT,
  • 11:34 AN ISRAELI TERRORISM EXPERT WHO CERTAINLY ,OF COURSE, HAS A LOT >>TO DO OVER THERE
  • 11:40 AND WE'LL BE BACK WITH HIM RIGHT AFTER THIS.
  • 11:43 THEY BEGAN TO USE WOMEN IN 2002, 2003
  • 11:48 BECAUSE THE YOUNG MAN OF 16-25-28 COULD NOT PENETRATE ISRAEL ANYMORE.

  • 12:28 ♪ ♪
  • 13:05 WELL, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, >>THE TOURS,
  • 13:07 WE'VE NEVER IN 80 TOURS SEEN EVEN THE SLIGHTEST HINT OF ANY UNREST.
  • 13:13 WE DON'T GO IN THE PLACES WHERE >>TERRORISM TENDS TO HAPPEN.
  • 13:16 FORTUNATELY, THE WAY GOD ARRANGED THINGS,
  • 13:18 THERE REALLY ARE NO BIBLICAL SITES IN THE WEST BANK.
  • 13:21 IT'S VERY ANCIENT LAND.
  • 13:22 IF THERE'S A SITE IT'S SORT WHAT >>THEY CALL A TRADITIONAL SITE.
  • 13:25 WE REMEMBER JESUS TALKING WITH >>THE SAMARITAN WOMAN AT THIS >>PLACE OR ON THAT HILL OR SO ON.
  • 13:31 BUT, WE GO TO GALILEE, >>JERUSALEM, MASADA, THE DEAD SEA,
  • 13:35 PLACES FAR OUT AWAY FROM-- IT'S SORT OF LIKE IN AMERICA.
  • 13:39 IF YOU WERE AT THE WORLD TRADE >>CENTER THE DAY IT WAS BOMBED,
  • 13:43 YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN TERRORISM AND BY THE WAY,
  • 13:45 FAR MORE TERRORISM THAN ISRAEL'S >>HAD IN ITS ENTIRE HISTORY.
  • 13:48 IF YOU'D BEEN IN OKLAHOMA CITY >>ON THAT FATEFUL DAY YOU WOULD >>HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF TERRORISM,
  • 13:55 AT ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 13:56 YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECTLY SAFE ON THOSE DAYS AND THAT'S THE THEORY.
  • 14:00 PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO GO ON THE TOUR, BUT IT'S ABSOLUTELY SILLY.
  • 14:04 I'LL MAKE THE STATEMENT ONE MORE TIME.
  • 14:05 NO TOURIST TRAVELING WITH A TOUR GROUP HAS EVER BEEN INJURED IN >>ANY WAY IN ISRAEL.
  • 14:13 IT'S NEVER HAPPENED.
  • 14:13 I CAN'T SAY THE SAME FOR EGYPT >>AND NOBODY TOURS THE OTHER ARAB COUNTRIES, I SUPPOSE.
  • 14:19 BUT, BELIEVE ME OUR TOURS ARE SAFE.
  • 14:21 I SLEEP BETTER THERE THAN I DO >>AT HOME.
  • 14:24 OUR NEXT TOUR WILL BE IN NOVEMBER.
  • 14:25 IT'S THE BEST ONE. I'LL LEAD IT MYSELF.
  • 14:27 IT'S BEST BECAUSE WE OFFER A >>GREEK CRUISE WITH IT AND PETRA
  • 14:30 AND YOU TAKE THE WHOLE THING AND >>IT'S A LOT OF FUN.
  • 14:35 GO IN THIS LIFETIME, SEE THE PROMISE LAND
  • 14:37 BEFORE YOU GO THERE AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE IN THE KINGDOM.
  • 14:41 TERRORISM, IT'S THE ISSUE OF THE DAY.
  • 14:44 OUR SERIES CALLED "AGE OR TERROR..CONTINUED".
  • 14:48 I'M AFRAID IT WILL JUST CONTINUE >>AND CONTINUE.
  • 14:50 NOBODY'S FOUND A SOLUTION TO THIS REALLY.
  • 14:52 WE'RE SUFFERING IT IN IRAQ EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE ARMED TROOPS ON >>THE GROUND.
  • 14:57 WE SUFFER TERRORISM ALL THE TIME
  • 15:00 AND WE ENCOUNTERED AN ISRAELI EXPERT ON THE SUBJECT.
  • 15:04 IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE >>FOLKS IN WASHINGTON.
  • 15:07 LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 15:08 DR. ELI KARMON IS WITH THE >>INSTITUTE OF COUNTER TERRORISM >>AT HERZLIA ISRAEL,
  • 15:13 A RESEARCH INSTITUTE AND THINK TANK
  • 15:16 DEDICATED TO DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM.
  • 15:20 WE ASKED DR. KARMON, WHO'S THE >>INITIATOR OF A TYPICAL PALESTINIAN SUICIDE BOMBING,
  • 15:26 THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION OR THE VOLUNTEER?
  • 15:30 THE TWO OF THEM.
  • 15:31 AT THE BEGINNING IT WAS MAINLY >>THE ORGANIZATION,
  • 15:34 WHICH RECRUITED PEOPLE THAT >>SEEMED SUITABLE FOR THIS KIND OF >>OPERATIONS,
  • 15:42 BUT AS THERE A GROWING INTEREST >>AND SUCCESS FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW,
  • 15:47 OF SUICIDE BOMBINGS MANY PEOPLE VOLUNTEERED.
  • 15:49 BUT, THE PROBLEM WAS NOT THE >>VOLUNTEERS, THE PROBLEM WAS TO FIND THE EXPLOSIVE SPECIALIST,
  • 15:55 THOSE WHO TRAINED THEM, PREPARED THEM AND IF YOU NEUTRALIZED THEM,
  • 16:00 EITHER ARREST OR KILL THEM, SO THEY HAVE PROBLEMS.
  • 16:03 SO, MANY TIMES YOU SEE A LOWER >>SUCCESS OF SUCH ATTACKS
  • 16:08 BECAUSE THE OPERATIONAL LEVEL WAS NEUTRALIZED AND THIS WAS, BY THE WAY,
  • 16:14 A RESULT OF THE LAST 2 YEARS AFTER THE DEFENSIVE SHIELD OPERATION.
  • 16:20 ON THE ONE HAND, THE FENCE WAS VERY IMPORTANT,
  • 16:23 BUT, ALSO THE HUGE AMOUNT OF ACTIVITY OF THE SECURITY AND MILITARY FORCES TO STOP THEM.
  • 16:30 SO TODAY WE HAVE A RATE OF 90% SUCCESS IN FOILING THESE ATTACKS.
  • 16:37 LAST YEAR FOR EXAMPLE, 2004, WE HAD 352 FOILED ATTEMPTS.
  • 16:44 30 OF THEM WERE FOILED WHEN THEY WERE ON THEIR WAY TO DO THE ATTACK.
  • 16:50 THE OTHERS WERE ARRESTED AT HOME.
  • 16:52 THEY BEGAN TO USE WOMEN IN 2002, 2003
  • 16:56 BECAUSE THE YOUNG MAN OF 16-25-28 COULD NOT PENETRATE ISRAEL ANYMORE.
  • 17:04 THEY WERE STOPPED AT THE CHECK POINTS.
  • 17:08 ALSO THEY USE SOME MAID PEOPLE >>WITH CHILDREN, WHICH WAS ALSO VERY--
  • 17:14 AND THIS WAS AN ADAPTATION TO THE OPERATIONAL DIFFICULTIES.
  • 17:17 IT IS NOT BECAUSE WOMEN WANTED >>TO BE, ALL OF A SUDDEN, PART OF THE STRUGGLE
  • 17:24 OR THE YOUNG BOYS, WHICH KNOW NOTHING OF--
  • 17:27 THEY UNDERSTAND BUT THEY WERE >>MANIPULATED BY THE LEADERSHIP.
  • 17:33 WE'VE TALKED BEFORE ABOUT THE PAYOFFS FOR THESE SUICIDE BOMBERS.
  • 17:38 THEY DON'T DO THIS FOR NOTHING.
  • 17:39 IF A PALESTINIAN FAMILY HAS 10 OR 12 CHILDREN
  • 17:41 AND THEY CAN CONVINCE SOME YOUNGSTER TO GO OUT AND BLOW HIMSELF UP,
  • 17:46 WELL, BACK IN THE GREAT DAYS OF >>SADDAM HUSSEIN, THEY USED TO GET $25,000.
  • 17:51 THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT EARN MONEY IN HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS A YEAR,
  • 17:55 GETTING $25,000 IN ONE BIG PAYMENT AND THEY'RE MISSING ONLY ONE CHILD
  • 18:00 AND SOME FAMILIES LOSE A CHILD >>IN A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT, ETC. SO THEY MAKE THAT BARGAIN.
  • 18:06 AND NOW THAT SADDAM IS NOT PAYING OFF, WELL,
  • 18:10 IT'S OUR FRIEND SAUDI ARABIA THAT'S PAYING,
  • 18:13 THE VERY PEOPLE THAT PRESIDENT >>HOLDS HANDS WITH ARE HOLDING US HOSTAGE.
  • 18:20 YOU KNOW, WE'RE ON THE DRUG CALLED OIL, PETROLEUM.
  • 18:24 PEOPLE ARE DIGGING FOR IT IN ISRAEL DESPERATELY, ALTHOUGH IN ISRAEL,
  • 18:27 WHAT'S MEANT BY "ASHER WILL PUT >>HIS FOOT IN OIL", IT'S ABOUT OLIVE OIL.
  • 18:35 ASHER TERRITORY THERE IN WESTERN SAMARIA WAS FULL OF OLIVE GROVES
  • 18:40 AND THEY DID SUPPLY OIL FOR THE >>LAMP AT THE TEMPLE AND THE TABERNACLES.
  • 18:46 BUT, PETROLEUM IS ANOTHER MATTER.
  • 18:50 IT RUNS OUR ECONOMY, SO WE PRETEND.
  • 18:53 THAT'S THE DRUG WE'RE ON AND WE >>PRETEND TO LOVE OUR PUSHER.
  • 18:57 DRUG ADDICTS ALWAYS DO THAT.
  • 19:00 THEY FORGIVE THE PUSHER JUST ANYTHING.
  • 19:02 THE PROBLEM IS OUR PUSHER IS ALSO PUSHING WAHABISM,
  • 19:05 THE RADICAL BRAND OF ISLAM THAT >>IS CREATING THE TERRORISM
  • 19:08 THAT PREACHES AGAINST AMERICA >>AND ISRAEL, AGAINST CHRISTIANS >>AND JEWS.
  • 19:13 WE HAVE TO REALIZE THAT THEIR MONEY AND THEIR NUMBERS,
  • 19:19 THE ISLAMISTS, COULD FINALLY DEFEAT US.
  • 19:23 THEY EXPORT TERROR ALONG WITH >>THE OIL AND WITH THAT RELIGION >>THAT THEY TEACH.
  • 19:30 THIS IS A KIND OF SCHIZOPHRENIC >>BEHAVIOR OF THE SAUDI LEADERSHIP.
  • 19:37 ON THE ONE HAND, THEY WANTED AND >>THEY NEEDED THE SUPPORT,
  • 19:41 THE STRATEGIC SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES,
  • 19:43 FIRST OF ALL AGAINST THE TIME THE SOCIALIST ARAB COUNTRIES
  • 19:47 LIKE SYRIA AND IRAQ AND EVEN NASSER'S EGYPT OR LIBYA.
  • 19:53 ON THE OTHER HAND AGAINST THE >>IRANIAN PREDOMINANCE, STRATEGIC >>PREDOMINANCE IN THE GULF.
  • 19:58 BUT, ON THE OTHER HAND IDEOLOGICALLY THEY WERE VERY FUNDAMENTALIST
  • 20:05 AND THEY WANTED THE SPREAD OF >>ISLAM EVERYWHERE BUT THE KIND OF
  • 20:11 VERY, WHAT IS CALLED WAHABID ISLAM, WHICH IS VERY >>CONSERVATIVE AND VERY AGGRESSIVE
  • 20:18 AGAINST OTHER RELIGIONS LIKE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.
  • 20:23 SO, WHAT THEY DID WITH THE HELP OF THE MONEY THEY ACHIEVED SINCE >>THE GREAT EMBARGO IN 1972,
  • 20:30 THE OIL CRISIS, THEY INVESTED IN SPREADING ISLAM THROUGH AMIRS,
  • 20:34 THROUGH MOSQUE CULTURAL CENTERS, IMAMS WHICH WERE PAID TO GO TO SOUTH AMERICA OR SOUTH OF ASIA
  • 20:42 TO SPREAD THIS KIND OF RADICAL >>ISLAM AND IRONICALLY THEIR MORE RADICAL ISLAMISTS,
  • 20:51 TOOK CONTROL OF THIS CENTERS AND MOSQUES A PROPAGATED MORE RADICAL ISLAM.
  • 20:58 THE FACT IS THAT ALTHOUGH THE BIN LADEN ATTACKED AT LEAST VERBALLY, SAUDI ARABIA,
  • 21:07 AND CONSIDER ITS OIL REGIME AS >>THE MAIN TARGET,
  • 21:10 THE SAUDIS SUPPORT IT >>FINANCIALLY AND DIPLOMATICALLY TALIBAN UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT.
  • 21:16 EVEN AFTER THE BEGINNING OF THE >>WAR, THEY STILL RECOGNIZED DIPLOMATIC WITH THE TALIBAN.
  • 21:20 THERE ARE ONLY 3 COUNTRIES THAT DID IT, SAUDI ARABIA IS ONE OF THESE.
  • 21:26 SO THIS IS WHAT I CALL THE SCHIZOPHRENIC PHENOMENON.
  • 21:30 THE FACT THAT SAUDI ARABIA HAS FINANCIALLY ASSISTED BIN LADEN >>IS HARDLY BREAKING NEWS,
  • 21:35 YET WE CONTINUE TO SHAKE THE HANDS OF SAUDI DIPLOMATS
  • 21:39 AND SMILE AS THOUGH WE'RE THE BEST OF FRIENDS.
  • 21:41 IT'S CLEARLY BECAUSE OF THE VERY >>BIG STRATEGIC AND ECONOMIC INTEREST.
  • 21:47 THE STABILITY OF THIS REGIME IS IMPORTANT FOR THE PRICES OF OIL,
  • 21:52 BUT ALSO IF THE RADICALS TAKE CONTROL OF IT, THEN THE SITUATION WILL BE WORSE.
  • 21:59 SO THIS IS, I THINK, THE MAIN--
  • 22:00 YOU HAVE PERHAPS A SIMILAR SITUATION IF EVEN NOT WORSE IN PAKISTAN,
  • 22:05 WHICH WAS THE HOTBED OF THE >>TALIBAN AND WHICH FOR MANY YEARS >>SUPPORTED TALIBAN
  • 22:12 AND IN A WAY EVEN AL QAEDA, IF YOU WANT.
  • 22:16 SO, THESE ARE THE PROBLEMS OF >>THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND THE UNITED STATES AS A BIG POWER
  • 22:22 MUST ALSO MANEUVER IN ALL THIS >>COMPLICATED WEALTH.
  • 22:28 SOMETIMES PERHAPS IT WOULD BE NECESSARY AND THE FACT IS THE DAYS ARE CHANGED TODAY
  • 22:33 AND BETTER LATER THAN NEVER.
