- Recall that in the wake of PM Ehud Barak's total
cave-in to the PLO at Camp David, I was informed that the military was
planning a coup to prevent the implementation of what would have been the
end of the Israeli state. I detailed the plan as it was related to me by
a high ranking officer, and a year later AP confirmed the near-coup, exactly
as I reported it. The details are found in my book Save Israel.
- In the past few weeks, I have been receiving
similar, but sketchier reports.
- PM Sharon is now scrambling to prevent another
attempt at a coup d'etat. The top echelons of the IDF, Shabak and intelligence
community have all reached the same conclusions: the planned Gaza withdrawal
will be a security disaster. Once the withdrawal is over, Israel will no
longer be able to secure its southern coastal flank. This will be the first
step in the dismantling of the country.
- To put an end to the coup discussions, in the
past week Sharon has fired the highest ranking security officers in the
country: IDF Chief of Staff, Gen. Moshe Yaalon, Shabak chief, Avi Dichter,
while a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, Col.
Effie Eitam, was removed from proceedings for attacking Sharon, and his
leadership of the National Religious Party was suspended.. Sharon is rushing
to replace the trio from their positions with his own loyalists but the
race to squelch the coup will be close.
- The initial plan was simple and quick. A platoon
of six tanks would break down the Knesset security fences and surround
the building. Those inside would be given twenty minutes to clear the area.
A second tank backed by an infantry squad would take over the Israel Broadcasting
Authority studios, a mile away. A smaller force would take over the studios
of the government radio stations in downtown Jerusalem.
- To prevent a counter-attack against the Knesset
forces, an announcement of the takeover would be broadcast by TV and radio,
urging supporters to join the forces at the Knesset. Estimates are that
over 100,000 Jerusalemites would join the soldiers at the Knesset within
an hour, while 250,000 would show their support for the coup within half
a day. At that point, a new rule by a military triumvirate would be announced.
- Support for the plan is strengthening and
Sharon's mass firings of the nation's security heads, may not prevent it.

- My planned American tour is slowly taking shape.
Too slowly for me. Only Los Angeles has confirmed. New York and Ohio have
- The results of the last report on Daniel Pipes
campaign to slander me widely are remarkable. I now have reports from numerous
editors confirming that Pipes and his two flunkies threatened them if they
continued publishing me.
- I request an attorney to work on contingency when
I arrive in America. I sought legal advice when Pipes was in Jerusalem
recently and was told I have iron-clad cases against Pipes for slander,
and just as good cases against the Jewish Press and AFSI Outpost for reprinting
his and his gang's slanders without consulting me. The claims that could
be legitimately demanded would be significant. All I need is the right
- As for the Israeli branch of the Pipes crusade,
a lovely complaint is being prepared for Haifa police to investigate. We've
got the lunatic on harassment and a first class felony, extortion. If anyone
has saved correspondence to help my cases, please send them on to me.
