Disengagement leads to war?

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

Submitted by Jan Vink (Mexico), Aug 9, 2005 at 10:37

Dr. Pipes,

Large groups of Palestinian Arabs have expressed their objection to the very existence of Israel. It is, therefore, intuitively plausible that the disengagement will have no effect whatsoever. But has the disengagement other puposes? For suppose Gaza turns into a violent terrorist platform against Israel, could we actually create a "legitimate" atmosphere with broad international support to retake Gaza through stern military measures once and for all?
