KOFIKO ANNAN must be deposed from the United Nothing (nations) as soon as feasible!

We asked Jacob Gurewich,* the author of THE ENEMY WITHIN & FEAR FACTORS, a former Yeshiva Scholar and a commander in the Irgun, to comment on Mr. Shmuel Sacket's article. Here is what he said: "Where there is no vision, the people perish! It's not the time to blame and criticize and/or involve the Almighty. Its time to realize that the Almighty will not get involved.

Thus, to stop the rain of terror and murder upon the land of Israel, knowing clearly the whereabouts the murderers hide, Israel should urge all the Lebanese civilians to evacuate Lebanon within 7 days, and enable them to seek refuge in Israel--shelter, food and medical aid. Then, unequivocally declare:

We are about blotting out the murderers from Lebanon and they will burn and be devoured by the fire! And a clue for the wise is sufficient."

*Aftermath the 1973 Yom Kippur Shoah, and the Oslo Shoah 20 years later, Gurewich

envisioned the present dire Israel's state of affairs, as he scrupulously detailed in his

books, essays, letters, and speeches, and said:Where there is no vision, the people perish!
