Sharon, speak to us. Your endorsement of a 'Palestinian state' brings to light certain questions that ought to be considered, answered and justified. That move, to create a new Arab state that had no historical existence, is a move to be debated, justified, as it will create a legal, irreversible fact, when the exercise and the experience of Oslo proved beyond any doubt that this entity, the spearhead of the entire Arab world, means one and only one thing, the elimination of the state of Israel. 1] Did the events following the Oslo agreement prove that returning land to the PA, entrusting them with arms, resulted in the intended plan? A peaceful coexistence? 2] Since taking control of most of the Arab population and 40% of Yehuda, Shomron and Gaza, did that authority educate their new generation to be productive, peaceful citizens that will be our next door neighbors, or a new generation of hateful and vengeful terrorists and suicide bombers? 3] Will that new Arab state, with international recognition and legitimacy, be possible to 'correct-reverse' in any way, short of actions that will contravene every international law, and tie up Israel, our children and grandchildren to an impossible and perpetuated warfare that will never end, and bring to mind Ben-Gurion statement in 1948 'of crying for generations'. 4] Is there any historical precedent, of a nation that cooperated and agreed to a condition that may bring its own destruction? 5] Can anyone foresee, predict ANY GOOD of creating another Arab dictatorship, when its only raison-d'etre is and will be the destruction of the only state of the hated Jews? A debate and an answer are in order.
