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

Submitted by Steven L (United States), Aug 15, 2005 at 17:56

I fervently hope that history will prove you wrong.
This is a big gamble with a lot to lose for the whole Middle East if the Muslim world does not show reason. It may be a lot to ask them but that is the only way to find out their real intentions. They will be the main loser and the Iranians may think that they may be the winners and history will prove them wrong.
Sharon will not budge from his position even if the whole world vanishes. After this move even if the Israeli people does not want to reelect him, Netanyahu will have it a lot easier.
Gaza is a stop loss and the last one.
