Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon's Folly

Submitted by Nora Amrani (United States), Apr 5, 2005 at 22:32

I agree with one of the commenters on Gaza not being the best place to start settlements in the first place. Absolutely correct. However, this was part of Israel, so why not settle in Israel? Wasn't Yamit tragedy enough? Why keep doing this to the Israelis? Israel gets smaller and smaller each year. It's an abomination. I can understand and feel for both sides of this, but it still doesn't say good things about Sharon putting the pressure on the Israelis to abandon their homes so quickly.

Let them have a year, or two. Let the Palestinians prove they can live in peace amongst themselves, first (something they've never managed to attain). There MUST be a guarantee from the Palestinians - or no deal! I am still waiting for the Arab nations to give some of their millions of acres to the Palestinians for a homeland. Why don't they ever give, but only demand from Israel?
