Not parody: Ami Ayalon: Base Israel security on Palestinian forces with international forces

Not parody: Ami Ayalon: Base Israel security on Palestinian forces with
international forces

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 30 April 2013

This morning on IDF Radio, former Shin Bet head and Labor Party MK Ami
Ayalon began his live interview by citing his long years of experience in
security matters as compared to the security experience of Minister Uzi
Landau as the basis for the legitimacy of his views over those of Landau,
who interviewed immediately before him on the program. (While minister
Landau "only" reached the rank of Major in the IDF, it should be noted that
he has served as chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, chairman, Subcommittee for the Control of the IDF, chairman,
Joint Committee for the Defense Budget and also as a member of these
committees over the years.)

Ayalon, who for years has been active in promoting various programs to
create a sovereign Palestinian state, explained that Israelís security
should be based on relying on Palestinian security forces bolstered by
international forces.

It is important to note that this was not a comedian impersonating Mr.
Ayalon trying to show how out of touch with reality Mr. Ayalon is but
instead Ami Ayalon himself.

For some reason, while program anchor Razi Barkai saw fit to spend
considerable time probing Minister Landau with questions relating to the
logic behind his position, Barkai had no follow up questions for Ayalon but
instead asked him his position on the initiative to require a national
referendum in the event that an agreement is reached with the Palestinians.

Ami Ayalon responded that Prime Minister Netanyahu "is correct that a
decision of this magnitude requires approval by a mnational referendum."

Unlike Yisrael Beiteinu head Liberman, Minister Landau also said he supports
a national referendum.
