You are right about no precedent on Gaza pull out

Reader comment on item: The Forcible Removal of Israelis from Gaza

Submitted by Muriel Efron (United States), Apr 11, 2005 at 17:53

You are so right! Only the Jewish people are subject to something like this. When Israel was declared a State in 1948, they should have made all Arabs move immediately, according to what is being done now. There was no precedent for the Holocaust either.

It is the Arabs/Palestinians who don't want any Jews living near them. Why does the world not see that it is the Arabs who are racist? Why can't the settlements stay? The world knows that they can't stay as part of a Palestinian state, because the Jews would be killed by the Palestinians as soon as the IDF would withdraw.

I fear that Daniel Pipes is only too correct that this is the wrong thing to do. Wherever the borders are, the terrorists will fight across them and kill Israeli citizens.

I think it is US pressure that is forcing Sharon to do this. Now the US doesn't want him to expand the villages on the West Bank. Why are we still playing into the Arab hands?

They don't want Israel to exist at all. When will President Bush understand that?

Not only should we be staying in Gaza, we should be telling the Arab countries to relocate the Palestinians to Jordan and other places. Jordan should be Palestine in the first place.

Israel should be expanding into the Gaza Strip, not leaving it.

No other people has ever been asked to commit mass suicide - not that I could find in extensive research, and I am a research librarian with over 30 years of experience.

Thanks for letting me state my opinion.
