Remarks by U.S. Security Coordinator LTG Keith Dayton

By Dr. Aaron Lerner HILARY LEILA KRIEGER Sat May 26 2007

In response to a question about Israel’s security raised by subcommittee ranking member Mike Pence (R-Indiana), Dayton assured the members, “Nothing we do to strengthen the Palestinian’s security capability will be targeted against Israel… the presidential guard will not become a threat to Israel.” No doubt this is because the Palestinian “moderates” assure LTG Keith Dayton that they won’t.

And why would they lie to him?] ——-

U.S. Supplies More Weapons To Abbas

David Bedein Tue Jun 19 2007

Yesterday, U.S. Secretary of State Condolzeeza Rice announced that the US would now provide more arms and ammunition for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas

‘…The Bulletin asked U.S. State Department officials present at the basketball stadium if Mr. Abbas would indeed be required to disarm and disband the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, the terrorist organization which remains an integral part of the Fatah, which continues terror actions unabated. U.S. State Department officials would not answer the question, even though the Al Aksa Brigades remains on the U.S. State Department list of terrorist organizations.

Concerning another major issue where the U.S. would be “the judge” of matters in dispute, The Bulletin asked U.S. State Department officials what their position was concerning the Palestinian school curriculum, which the Israel Ministry of Defense had concluded were rife with anti-Semitic incitement and which erased Israel from the map and denied any connection of Jews or Judaism to the land of Israel.

U.S. State Department officials looked into the matter and said that they had taken no stand on the issue’

Israel Arming PA

About 300 new cars for the use of the Palestinian Authority (PA), AK-47 rifles, rubber bullets and other crowd control measures and thousands of permits for work in Israel are part of a list of gestures that Defense Minister Ehud Barak is expected to offer to Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

U.S. Security Coordinator Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton, who was charged by the U.S. administration with putting together plans for strengthening the PA in Judea and Samaria and upgrading its security forces, pressed Israel to make gestures toward the Palestinians. Following U.S. pressure and as part of the Annapolis process, Central Command Maj. Gen. Gadi Shamni assembled the new Israeli plan, which was adopted by Mr. Barak.

Due to the fear that removing roadblocks in Judea and Samaria will make it easier for terrorists to enter Israel, the plan does not include a removal of roadblocks. However, Palestinian armed personnel are to be reinforced. Mr. Barak is expected to announce that Israel has agreed to turn over security responsibility in the Jenin area to the PA’s security forces, which will be reinforced in this sector by two battalions, made up of 600 armed policemen who have been trained in recent months in Jordan.

This is in addition to the 25 Russian-made armored vehicles and millions of rubber bullets and other weaponry defined as non-lethal, which will serve the Palestinian police for crowd control. The Palestinians will also receive equipment for bomb detection. According to Israeli security sources, the Palestinian police will also receive AK-47 rifles and night-vision scopes.

The Jerusalem Post Mon Jun 16 2008

Hours after US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Jerusalem on Sunday, top defense officials and IDF officers slammed a recently-launched US initiative, under which Palestinian soldiers have deployed in Nablus and Jenin.

According to the officials, terrorist activity has increased in Ramallah since some 600 Palestinian soldiers were allowed to deploy in the West Bank city last month.
