Ariel Sharon: Israel's New Prime Minister

TOP SCOOPS


National Chooses Bill English For Deputy Leader

- The National Party has chosen finance spokesperson Bill English to be its new deputy leader. There is no word yet on how close the vote was, but defeated candidate Gerry Brownlee said it was a decisive victory for Mr English. Reaction: ANDERTON - Anderton congratulates English [1] - WINSTON PETERS - English Deputy Leadership Won’t Save Shipley [2]

Israel Election: Ariel Sharon Landslide Victory

- This morning Israeli television exit polls gave Ariel Sharon, hardline leader of the Likud Party, 59.5 per cent of the vote to Prime Minister Ehud Barak's 40.5 per cent. Shortly after Barak conceded and resigned from the Israeli Labour Party.

David Miller: Future Of The Middle East Peace Process - Last December Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Barak resigned from office in order to attain a fresh mandate from the Israeli people to pursue the peace initiatives with the Palestinians, which by this stage were plagued by the violence in the areas they controlled. See... Israel’s Election: Implications for Peace Process [1]

Scoop World: Ariel Sharon, A Man Without A Conscience - Ariel Sharon was born in Palestine in 1928, grandson of a Russian migrant family and the son of farmers. When he was 13, his father gave him a knife. Sharon remembers, "The knife was symbolic, to protect ourselves from our enemies. It was a lesson I have never forgotten." See...

Howard’s End: X-Rated Hopes Dashed By Yawn Inducing G-Rated Reality

- Temptation Island, Fox TV's hyped-up reality series, which aired on TV3 Monday night, has proved to be a lot of bacon with little sizzle. And one contestant couple already had a child. See... Howard's End: Temptation Island Lacks Sizzle [1]

BBC Discovers The Lost World On The West Coast

- New Zealand is set to receive another international boost as BBC cameras start rolling on the West Coast on February 17 for a feature film of Arthur Conan Doyles “The Lost World.” See... BBC Finds “Lost World” On West Coast [1] . For additional clarification see also... Scoop Feedback: Scoop gets its facts wrong! [2]

WAITANGI: Letter From Elsewhere: Our Nation’s Story

- Pakeha are not into national celebrations or commemorations these days. We used to turn out in tidy, neatly hatted droves to watch solemn civic parades and listen raptly to amazingly plummy-voiced Prime Ministers and broadcasters intoning platitudes about being one nation. Now, except for commercially hyped public shows of support for the All Blacks or the America’s Cup winners, we seem to have lost the plot. Or perhaps we’ve found it at last, and we don’t like it. See... Letter From Elsewhere: Our Nation’s Story [1]

Scoop World: Bid For South Pacific Whale Sanctuary Fails

- At an informal meeting in Monaco today, Australia and New Zealand failed once again to gain support for their whale sanctuary in the South Pacific. See... Sanctuary Proposal Fails To Get Support … Again [1] , Gambling With The Future Of Whales - Greenpeace [2] and NZ Government reaction, New Zealand Pushes For Tight Whaling Rules [3]

Last Day For Cannabis Submissions

- Submissions to the New Zealand Health Committee's inquiry into the legal status of cannabis close on the 7th of February. Please take a few minutes today to send your submission if you have not done so already. See... NZ Cannabis Inquiry submissions due by 7 Feb 2001 [1]

Scoop Feedback: ‘Priceless’ Picture Found Worthless

- As a member of the United States citizenry, and as someone who has had to endure the last 8 years of a dishonest, shady man in the presidency, I find your picture of G. Bush offensive. See... Scoop Feedback: Bush Picture Offends [1] and Scoop Images: Priceless [2]
