There is a path

Israeli peace group, Gush Shalom, in Haaretz on August 12:

The day after tomorrow, the curtain will rise on the great play: the head-on clash between Ariel Sharon and the settlers.

The day after the disengagement, Sharon and the settlers will form again a common front, in order to prevent the dismantling of the West Bank settlements.

The Israeli public, which supports the withdrawal from Gaza, must demand its continuation in the West Bank, so as to enable us to lead, at long last, a normal life in our state.

Last night I caught to SBS news and saw footage of "settlers" packing their lives into cartons and preparing to leave their homes.

It brought to mind Bob Dylan's "A pawn in their game".

Whichever "side" you choose to support, it is the people that are stuck in the middle - in the settlements, in the refugee camps, in the suburbs - that feel the pain. This is truly a sad situation for all involved.

Ok, I'm gonna make a prediction:

Even after the civilian pull-out of Gaza, Sharon will be the target of an assasination attempt by a pro-settling Jew.


If you support Shalom's analysis, will you be game to say that he'll be safe after the civilian pull-out of Gaza?

Of course not. Sharon is now a target for fundamentalist settlers, supported by him for decades. Who created this mess?

So you're predicting there won't be a common front after the disengagement?
