Reader comment on item: [Israel's Gaza Withdrawal:] A Democracy Killing Itself

Submitted by Irving A Wiseman (United States), Aug 15, 2005 at 11:50

After reading the press conference, Mr McClellen says in answer to one question" We are pleased that the Prime MInister flatly stated that Unauthorized outposts will be dismantled.
period. " I disagree that the US did not apply pressure on Israel on the Gaza re-location

I believe that Sharon wants to see how the Hamas and the Palestinans react after the re location is complete,
Forgetting the name calling and boasting etc, if they can not be handled by the Palestinian government then all bets and gloves are off. The Gaza Jews are now in a safe haven out of harms way. Israel will defend itself as it always has in the past.

I believe it's a democracy strenghtening itself.
