For years theIsraeli left has claimed that sharons and the likuds policies in Gaza and the west bank were not tenable in the long run and where only creating long term liabilites for Israel. They where shouted down as traitors,wimps, etc etc. And now we see the main architect of the settlement myopia having to share in views that the left has be claiming for years. How do you explain that opponents of the withdrawl? has sharon gone mad? Is he now a wimp or a traitor? Or has begun to face the reality that anyone with half a brain should have recognised years ago? Why do you persist with a rational that now has its main architect refuting it? Two years ago Ariel sharon was your saviour "King of Israel" the warrior the proud Zionist!!!! And now what is he in your view? Why did he "betray you"?
