Sharon is for the military strategy "the pullout"

Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon's Folly

Submitted by Albert Bello (Canada), Jul 22, 2005 at 17:28

When suicide bombers are killing innocent Israelis, Ariel Sharon proved in the past that he would not be content to stay long with a status of security disadvantage . When a reliable military strategy is not in place, politics are not a priority.

Whether the nation likes it or not, the disengagement and the pullout is clear military move and the military brass agreed, otherwise the brass could remove Sharon for incompetence long ago. They did not.

The security of the Jewish State comes first. Most Israelis believe in Sharon. If the settlers are Israelis they should also believe in him. Otherwise the settlers should come with a convincing 21st century contemporary military alternative.
