The cost-benefit analysis

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

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Apr 12, 2005 at 07:45

The removal is aimed to achieve peace between Israelis and Arabs. The benefits of a peace between Israelis and Arabs would extend to the relationships between the West and the Muslim world.

Right now, the Israelis can negotiate peace in their own terms and this is an opportunity not to be lost.

In the future, the price to pay could be much higher for the Israelis.

Going back to the forcible removal of Israelis from Gaza: the benefits of the operation outweigh all costs.

Millions of Israelis and Westerners will save their lives if this operation is carried out.
