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

Submitted by orange yonason (United States), Aug 29, 2005 at 12:09


Here is just one item.

MOSHE ARENS(in a "Lateline" interview with Tony Jones): "He did not have any pressure from the United States. Just the other night, we saw an interview with President Bush, and he was asked about the disengagement, and he related what most of us knew - that one fine day, Israel's Prime Minister Sharon came along with this idea of unilateral withdrawal, and President Bush said "Well, this sounds like a good idea." So this was not an idea that was force-fed to Mr Sharon."

There's more, but I think that this is pretty solid.
