Reader comment on item: [The Gaza Withdrawal:] A Democracy Killing Itself
Submitted by David Bentata PSC (Gibraltar), Aug 16, 2005 at 08:39After all the words & rhetoric have been said, after all the pundits have punded, the commentators comment, the lefts & rights hurled insults at each other ..... after the dust has settled on the shameful withdrawal from Gaza by Sharon.... what then?
More bombs, more suicide bombers, Katyushka rockets, and yes, make no mistake about it, more 9/11's, Madrid Atocha's, London bombings... there will be no end. Because, for the first time since the ignomenious retreat from Vietnam, terrorists have been rewarded for the death and destruction they have wreaked upon an undefended world. Potential terrorists have also been encouraged by this undeserved prize.
Killing works! Terrorism works! Bombings and sucide missions work!
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has just given carte blanche to all terrorist organisations to go ahead and vent their poisoned spleens on the world.
Shame on you Sharon!
Shame on Israelis for allowing it on the lame excuse that it will bring peace. Events and innocent blood will prove the Doves and the Dolts wrong.
Jews believe that the 9th of the month of Av (Tisha be-Av) is historicaly the harbringer of disaster to the Jewish people. This 9th of Av, Sunday 14th August just past, will show that the effects of this colossal idiocy will radiate disaster and death well beyond the borders of Gaza and Israel.
Would that I were mistaken ......
