Daily Telegraph
Sharon's plan is to drive Palestinians across the Jordan

Martin van Creveld is a self-hating Jew, according to the standards set by 
the pro-Israeli establishment in the United States. This is because he is 
critical of the vicious occupation of the West Bank and other actions of 
the Israeli military state: he has written a revealing book entitled THE 

Creveld, writing in the very pro-Israeli DAILY TELEGRAPH, says that Israeli 
prime minister Ariel Sharon, also known as the Butcher of Sabra and 
Chatila, is waiting for an eruption in the Middle East to launch his Final 
Solution of the Palestinian question: driving all two million Palestinians 
out of the West Bank by military force. Such pretexts that might offer 
themselves include an invasion of Iraq by our Alfred E. Newman president 
("What, me worry?"), or perhaps a devastating terror bombing in Israel:

Of course, that Israel has been attempting to implement a Wansee-style 
Final Solution has been apparent for some time: see my earlier posting,
"Israel is committing retail genocide." However, if you get your 
information from the mainstream press in the United States, you would
hardly guess this. That's why this story is so interesting. Apparently in 
Britain, even the pro-Israeli press -- and no newspaper in Britain is more 
pro-Israeli than the TELEGRAPH -- feels the need to have some balance on 
the Palestine issue. It highlights the utter moral bankruptcy of our own 
news-entertainment establishment.
