Because of a new series of violence, Israel has canceled the transfer of Bethlehem to the palatinian autonomous government
At a summit a month ago, Israel’s Minister Prosident Ariel Scharon had promised a lot of the Palastic Prasident Machmud Abbas. But then came a new wave of violence in between. Key buttons of commitments had been the constitutor of security responsibility via Bethlehem in the immediate vicinity of Jerusalem. Because it was quiet in the birthplace of Jesus Christ in recent months, the official jerking of the place to the palastic autonomous government in Israeli safety circuit has long been considered a harmless. A week after that, Kalkiliya should be handed over. In addition, Sharon presented the resource of the Gaza airport and the full control over the land and sea limits to the Gaza Strip in view. The expected consideration: Absolute security for Israel.
The deduction from the well-known tourist destination Bethlehem continues to wait: On Tuesday, Israel’s government said the transfer planned for this week, Kuzprustig, after Palastinian extremists had stalled in the night previously attacked Israeli settlers and soldiers attacked. In the evening, a suicide dock in a shopping mall in the Kustenstadt Netanja four people with themselves tore in death. Already minutes after the attack, the Islamic Jihad became the attack, in which more than 90 people were injured. The Israeli Cabinet met in the evening to a recruitable meeting to talk about retaliation. But there was no decision. Instead, the safety precautions were created everywhere in Israel and the occupied territories.
"Security fence" at Kalkiliya
Thus, the task Bethlehems is now in the distance: "Only when the Palastinian side does its part, there will be more keynails," said a government speaker in the evening. Thus is a transfer of the North of Jerusalem Kalkiliya, a city, which is located directly on the green line and surrounded by the Israeli barrier wall, now no speech, the place had to be handed over exactly one week after Bethlehem. "We do not feel tied to old commitments," says the speaker: "We expect the Palastinians immediately and unrestricted their own house; If necessary, we will force you to do it."
Security was in fact a continuous burner topic before the events on Tuesday: only one day after the tension-charged meeting between Sharon and the Palastic Prasident Machmud Abbas in Jerusalem sank a performance of Prime Minister Achmed Kreiia in the escape lake Balata in Chaos, as an outside of the building shot fired. "The way the palastic safety organs are dealt with the situation should give us to think," said shortly thereafter government speakers Ra’anan Gissin. And BBC Correspondent Matthew Price, who had been present at the sitting, commented: "Scenes like these do not allow particularly gross confidence in the ability of the Palastians to provide security and order."
Scharon had hoped for this, Abbas through far-reaching offers, such as the restoration of the airport in Gaza and the prospect of full control over the land and sea limits of the Gaza Strip, to move to unusual steps. But this is easier said than done: "The extremist groups are well-puffed and wildly determined to show that it is there," says Ze’ew ship from the newspaper Haaretz. And his colleague Aluf Benn evaluated the attack on Tuesday evening as a direct attack on the authoritat of Machmud Abbas: "The Islamic Jihad blobed him from all over the world and his own people and showed that the organization is not ready to go to the guided Abbas’ subordinate. Abbas must now be his favorably last test."
In fact, his amounts are, he is approached against the extremists, rarely and quietly; His promise on Tuesday evening, he will consider the backman of the attack to account for, were only taken by the Israeli government with a Muden laughing. "The Palestinian leadership has little to contribute to extremism — their police powers have not even had enough weapons," says Haaretz commentator Ze’ew ship. Aviv Buntman Meanwhile, the newspaper Jedioth Ahronoth is sure that the Palastinian guiding Ohenehhin is not ready to risk violent riots for the transfer of security responsibility: "In these actions, a pair of control points are given up, exchanged a few flags, and then everything remains when Old: Israeli uniforms are already rarely visible in Israeli city; Palastinian police officers are already in use."
Nevertheless, that the Israeli government has fallen hard to go to the security apparatus of the security apparatus, which is particularly a strategically or security policy, is mainly due to the state of affairs of such action: "Especially now, shortly before the start of the settlement room, a transfer can despite Violence quickly cost a lot of support, "says BBC-Man Matthew Price. The opponent of the separation plan has been awarded the Prime Minister for a long time, he put the security of the state to the game.
Nevertheless, on Spade Tuesday evening no doubt had a doubt that it will nevertheless come to transfer: "Both sides must currently produce the picture that something moves in the region," explaining Haaretz commentator Ze’ew ship. "Abbas will therefore try to keep the extremists in chess through stronger integration; Sharon will then submit Bethlehem and Kalkiliya. Both are damned to progress."
