Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon's Folly

I agree with Mr. Finestone when it comes to strategic concerns. It is very difficult to obtain territory without a complete annexation.

As much as I am opposed to rewarding terrorists still stuck in the dark ages, I see the diplomatic value of Sharon's withdrawal as well. It will prove quite formally just how willing the Arab nations are to negotiate. Israel will have more diplomatic power in any future conflict.
