Untenable Gaza

Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon's Folly

I am strongly in sync with most of Daniel Pipes' positions..but I think you are misguided on Gaza.

After careful examination of the map, I agree with strategic policies to achieve secure and defensible territorial positions. It is NOT as if compensation is not being offered.(remember Sinai?).

While I do not like the situation, the trade-offs do seem plausible to me. I can only hope that the Sharon plan brings the desired results.

For the Palestinians, it is NO victory...I do not expect them to "get it".....they never do!
