  1. Was this evacuation negotiated? If not, I fear we may see a repeat of the aftermath of the Gaza withdrawal. Unless there’s some under-the-table deal between Olmert and the PA we don’t know about.

    Glad to see justice come to these mechalelei Hashem.

  2. “…Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took!, Ya been hoodwinked!, Bamboozled, Led astray!”

    It’s time Israel and Israelis begin to fathom the nature of the beast. Peace is a non-starter for American Jews for whom an Israel at war is and has been the entre to corridors of power and influence, and have placed them at the the top of the american political ziggurat. The American Jewish propaganda machine is hell bent on depicting the State of Israel as one settler-loving, palestinian-hating, monolith. Given whats in the balance, this is understandable. An Israel that is at peace with it’s neighbors, an Israel that is reconciled to the reality of a two-state solution, an Israel that is committed to social justice for all of its citizens, an Israel not torn apart by social dysfunction, is simply not in the interests of American Jews, either from the left or the right side of the political spectrum. Without an Israel on a perpetual war-footing, without an Israel as a supplicant client state, without an Israel that is willing to subordinate its own interests to that of the United States, without the perception that it is necessary for American Jews to intercede with the American government on Israel’s behalf, (American Jews become a political non-entity (much as they were prior to June 1967), with the attendant loss of power and influence that would entail. In short, American Jewish support has nothing to do with Israel’s welfare, it has to do with its own.

    It was Barak who was responsible for the evacuation. I am not sure I’d call dragging Jews from their houses “justice.” It seems ill-spirited that you would be happy about this. My father is a Jew and mother isn’t. However, I still identify with what the Israelis are going through there.
