The Orr Commission of Inquiry:
The Political Establishment in the Guise of Objectivity

Haim Misgav

Ehud Barak established the Orr Commission at the tail end of his term in office – for his own political purposes. The Arab citizens of the State of Israel, which is characterized in the document declaring its establishment as the national home of the Jewish people, have been aware for a while that the cracks in the walls of the Jewish State are gradually expanding – and therefore hurried to join the struggle of the “Palestinians”, hoping that the stage in which the Jewish State will collapse is near. The calamitous “Oslo Process” retsored Yasser Arafat, the arch-terrorist, to the heart of the Land of Israel along with tens of thousands of armed terrorists, equipped with the Palestinian Charter advocating the “step-by-step process”. The Arabs residing within the “Green Line” undoubtedly understood, that their turn to be “liberated” from the shackles of the Jewish entity, in which they happened to settle after the War of Independence, was imminent.

Those, among others, were the reasons that Ehud Barak was unable to reach an agreement with Yasser Arafat, despite the fact that he offered him all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza so that he may establish a “Palestinian State” there. Yasser Arafat wants much, much more. He wants all of Western Israel – in order to repatriate millions of “refugees” there.

Unfortunately, Yasser Arafat has many supporters within the Jewish community. The “Oslo Gang”, which has a clear post-Zionist agenda, does everything in its power to diminish the strength of the State of Israel to the point where it will no longer be able to oppose the demands to transform it into a “multi-cultural” state – a new term in the lexicon of the post-Zionists from the “Oslo Adherents” school – on the way to total acquiescence.

The Orr Commission, with its disgraceful composition, was ultimately unable to reach any conclusions other than those, which it reached. Justice Aharon Barak, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who at the time was a dominant member of the Kahan Commission, which recommended the dismissal of Ariel Sharon from his position as Defense Minister – and by doing so established the first signpost on the road to Oslo – apparently wanted to reach those conclusions.
