Quick thoughts on Gaza
THIS IS THE WORST POLITICAL MISCALCULATION THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!
Pulling out of Gaza will not stop a single terrorist attack. Instead this will INCREASE terrorism in Israel. I know that Ariel Sharon is trying to send the message that he wants peace and is willing to negotiate, but I think that he is actually sending a different message to Hamas and company: If you kill enough of our people, then we'll give in to your demands. Hamas will then increase their bloody campaign of terror, because now they have evidence that their strategy works! Hamas and, to a lesser extent, the Palestinian Authority both have as their goal the total, utter and complete destruction of Israel. If you don't believe me, then I suggest you read the PLO charter, which has NOT been purged of anti-Israel rhetoric as demanded by the Oslo Accords. By leaving Gaza, Israel has given the terrorists hope that they can eventually remove Jews from the entirety of Israel. This is not fair to settlers, it is not fair to Israel, and it is not fair to the Palestinians in Gaza who will lose their jobs and be subjected to a new wave of anti-Israel propaganda as a result of this pullout.
