Israeli Doves

Reader comment on item: Reading Sharon's Mind

Submitted by Tim Hunter (United States), Dec 30, 2003 at 15:18

One of the difficulties of the Israeli State in its efforts to withstand evil has been the existence of an appeasing and aggressive peace movement. Israel's democracy sometimes periodicly seems capable of committing suicide, the great shining hope that Israeli doves hold out as a gift to Yasir Arafat.

Sharon's Disengagement Plan has the effect of preemptively taking the wind from under the very wings of the Israeli doves; forces them to fly in the direction Sharon prescribes.

Sharon's stroke is brillant - so long as he dosen't mean what he is saying.
