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

Submitted by john w. mcginley (United States), Aug 15, 2005 at 16:14

The fact of the matter is that Sharon is not Barak and the the planned and carefully orchestrated evacuation of 8500 settlers from a strip of land containing over a million and a half Palestinians is both tactically and strategically intelligent, saving money, miltary resources and IDF lives in an endeavor which, one way or another would have been the final outcome anyway ------- this, Professor Pipes, is anything but another Lebanon Have you forgotten the Sharon's government response a number of weeks ago in taking out six khamas leaders for their rocket attacks on Israeli citizens in and out of the Gaza. ...don't yoyrealize that after the evacuation the Sharon government will INCREASE its attacks on terrorists in the Gaza? ...this strategic move in the Gaza will work, in the long run, in favor of the goal of annexing large portions of the West Bank into a Greater Israel. .. . And as long as Sharon remains in power things will get better for Israel. John W. McGinley
