There is no "Palestine" - see Levant

Reader comment on item: Jews Living in Palestine?

Submitted by George Keselman (United States), Feb 6, 2014 at 19:41

"Although I usually support Bennett et al.'s approach, Netanyahu is right this time, for many reasons."

I'm suprised to read this your article. It shows changing in your own position. Let me offer my opinion.

Netanyahu is a well known opportunist, he acts in his own interests, not of the Jewish people. He gave many opportunities to prove that.

1. Ariel Sharon's removal of 8,000 Israelis from Gaza in 2005 was overt stupidity and a high crime. Yes, Netanyahu's objection to his decision was right.

2. I agree with your second reason.

3. "permitting Jews to live under the Palestinian Authority is eminently practical." -- I'm sorry to read this. A real brouhaha. Israeli government has no right to abandon Israeli citizens and make them live under a foreign Nazi jurisdiction.

4. Netanyahu "... shreds the campaign of delegitimization against Jews residing in the West Bank." --

No need to apologize for those Jews living on their own land.

5. "... this Netanyahu's position changes the terms of debate." No, it doesn't. This conflict will not end without defeating "Palestinians" militarily. Always remember Yitzhak Shamir. He was one of many people who established the modern state of Israel.

Respectfully,

George Keselman

3. The point is, if the Jews of Hebron lived in safety, it would no longer be what you call "foreign Nazi jurisdiction."
