Gantz defends Gaza disengagement as a precedent for other areas

Benny Gantz, founder of new Israel Resilience (Hosen L’Yisrael) Party defended the Oslo Accords and Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in a full-length interview on Wednesday with the Yediot Aharonot daily in his campaign for election on April 9. He urged the Gaza example be applied to  other areas. DEBKAfile recalls: For Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip,  8,000 Israelis were forcibly evicted and the IDF pulled out, opening the door for the Hamas takeover. Spokesmen of the new party scrambled to correct the remarks of its leader, a former IDF chief of staff, made in defense of an event which still excites popular rancor. “He does not support unilateral withdrawal from Judea and Samaria,” they explained, and added: “The Hosen L’Yisrael party does not support a unilateral pullout.”

    Let this new left-wing party state very specifically to the Israeli public that they are not in favor of unilaterally abandoning the eastern portion of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights………………………

    If peace means eviction of jews, that means war until a full ethnic cleansing. Rabbin, Gants, etc…do not understand the symbolic consequence of the jewish historical homeland judenrein.
    Stupididy is repeating the same mistakes. After Rabbin, Barak, it’s clear that soldiers are incompetent in politics.
