An Interview With Israeli M.K. Dr. Arieh Eldad Bookmark and Share
clear

by Jerry Gordon (Nov. 2008)

Israeli Knesset Member, Dr. Arieh Eldad, is a nationalist gadfly among the country’s politicians. He is a member of the Moledet party list of the minority National Union faction that favors the willing transfer of “Palestinian” Arab refugees from the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria to the de facto Palestine: Jordan. With more than 70% of Jordan’s population composed of Palestinian Arabs, Eldad considers that the real ”two state solution.” Jordan has plenty of territory to absorb their fellow Arabs now languishing in the squalid UNWRA camps in Samaria, Judea and Gaza. Eldad and others in his party argue that international investment in agricultural production, water, energy, urban and jobs development in Jordan is required to help facilitate absorption. more>>>

At long last, out of Israel, common sense and lucidity.

Was there any evidence that the story about the intended suicide bomber from Beersheba is true?

I can find no reference to it anywhere and my friends in Israel had no know ledge of the story.

Did Mr. Gordon do any investigation to verify whether the story was true or did he simply take the word of D.Eldad?

It apppears that my comment did not go through, therefore I am resubmitting it.

Did Jerry Gordon do any investigation to verify the story of the woman from Beersheba?

I have seen no reference to it anywhere and my friends in Israel tell me that they have never heard about it.

Please comment

Thank you Rebecca. I had never seen this story about an event that occured FOUR years ago but Dr.Eldad had to embellish the story by claiming that she was burned by her family.

In Israel Eldad is a pariah but thank you for steering me to the source of the story
