‘NETANYAHU IS FINISHED’ (excerpt) Seymour Hersh. The excerpt doesn’t even embody a teaser, however the Hamas file rests squarely on Bibi’s desk. A form reader despatched me the total textual content. Right here is the important thing materials:

When he returned to workplace in 2009, the insider stated, “Bibi selected to help Hamas” as a substitute for the Palestinian Authority, “and gave them cash and established them in Gaza.”

An association was made with Qatar, which started sending a whole bunch of tens of millions of {dollars} to the Hamas management with Israeli approval. The insider informed me that “Bibi was satisfied that he would have extra management over Hamas with the Qatari cash—allow them to sometimes fireplace rockets into southern Israel and have entry to jobs inside Israel—than he would with the Palestinian Authority. He took that danger….

The assault by Hamas was a direct results of a call Bibi made, over the protest of native navy commanders, “to permit a gaggle of Orthodox settlers to rejoice Sukkot within the West Financial institution.” Sukkot is an annual fall vacation that commemorates the ancestral journey of Jews into the depths of the desert. It’s a weeklong pageant that’s noticed by constructing an outside non permanent construction often called a sukkah through which all may share the meals that their predecessors ate and viscerally hook up with the harvest season. …

The Sukkot celebration, held close to a Palestinian village recognized in Hebrew as Haware, would wish extraordinary safety, given the stress over the most recent violence, and the native Israeli navy authorities, with the approval of Netanyahu, ordered two of the three Military battalions, every with about 800 troopers, that protected the border with Gaza to shift their focus to the Sukkot pageant.

“That left solely eight hundred troopers,” the insider informed me, “to be liable for guarding the 51-kilometer border between the Gaza Strip and southern Israel. That meant the Israeli residents within the south have been left with out an Israeli navy presence for ten to 12 hours. They have been left to fend for themselves. And that’s the reason Bibi is completed. Could take a couple of months, however he’s over.”
