Sharon deserves our trust and support

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

Submitted by John Gelles (United States), Aug 15, 2005 at 18:16

The withdrawal from Gaza will enjoy majority support by Israeli Jews as a whole -- if not by some who share the Netanyahu view. If we assume the result will be more terror by our enemies, the pull-out will leave us stronger and those who support terror weaker for it. To find fault with Sharon ought to take a lot more evidence than Professor Pipes offers.
