Yep, know it's Debka but thought it was worth a quick mention.
Many will recall the prime minister's solemn reiterations that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose an existential threat to Israel and noticed how
fast they have faded.
His "security pledges" regarding a future Palestinian state on the West Bank should therefore be taken with a hefty grain of salt. Indeed, according
to DEBKAfile's Washington sources, the prime minister may already be listening to a US proposal to assign the policing of the Jordan Valley and West
Bank mountain peaks to NATO troops, most of them American.
Most of the article is their usual rant about the Bushehr reactor (which is online from today), but the last few lines are interesting if true if the
US are really proposing to police the West Bank with NATO troops & mostly US troops, as this would fit into recent suggestions that the US is getting
ready to attack another country in the middle east - possibly Lebanon or Syria?? Or another staging post to attack Iran when the time comes this year
And would explain Israel's eagerness to return to negotiations with the Palestinians in just over 2 weeks time.
Omitting any comment on the Bushehr reactor, Prime Minister Netanyahu stated that Israel's security would be paramount in a deal with the
Palestinians. He issued a list of stipulations, such as the demilitarization of territory handed to the Palestinians - only side arms for police;
Israel would retain control of the Jordan Rift Valley bordering the Kingdom of Jordan and the mountain ridges forming the spine of the West Bank, they
key to defending Jerusalem and Israel's coastal plain.
