Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon, Escapist

Submitted by orange yonason (United States), Nov 28, 2005 at 21:24

B"SD

Point A......"The session also dealt with the day after the evacuation, with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon saying the momentum should be used to settle the southern Negev desert. 'This period, which will not be repeated, should be used in order to speak with evacuees and make an effort to direct them to communities in the Negev," he said. "They must be called upon to immediately move to new settlement in the Negev.' "

......

Point B......" 'They are now being asked to relinquish these accomplishments for the greater good." - Israeli Foreign Ministy press release on the Expulsion
"All for the Greater Good." - motto inscribed over the entrance of a Soviet Gulag
...
"Stalin's, 'New Socialist Future' was built in Siberia where the expelled farmers were sent. Sharon's 'New Socialist Future' is meant to be built in the Negev. One wasteland is exchanged for another. Blistering desert for frozen tundra. The principle though is the same and resistance to both were brutally crushed. To both Stalin and Stalin[sic: (read 'Sharon'?)], the peasants and settlers represented an obstructive force, strongly religious and nationalistic as well as independent, they had to be crushed to make way for the stability of their regimes."

Point C......

Connect the dots.

And, as to his Party hopping, it just looks like Shlomtzion Redux from here.

Finally, given Kenneth S. Besig's excellent points, it is very disturbing to discover that Sharon has any shred of crediility left, let alone an even more disturbingly large following.
