Sharon and His Crocodile tears!

by Steven Shamrak.

The following is extracted from a televised speech made by Sharon on the first day of the expulsion of Jews from the Gaza Strip and my comments.

Full speech -

“This step is very difficult for me personally. It is not with a light heart that the government of Israel made this decision on disengagement and the parliament did not lightly approve it.” – Sharon betrayed Jewish settlers and gave up Sinai! He did leave Hebron even after the PA ignored the obligations under the Oslo agreement. Just empty words and lies!

“It is no secret that, like many others, I had believed and hoped we could forever hold onto Netzarim and Kfar Darom.” – Belief is just not enough. It is Jewish ancestral land he is forcing Jews from!

“But the changing reality in the country, in the region, and the world, required of me a reassessment and change of positions.” – Reality has not changed! Jews still are surrounded by enemies, attacked by Arab terrorists and pressured by anti-Semitic International community. What has changed since 1948?

“It is out of strength and not weakness that we take this step.” – Tell this to Hamas and the celebrating Arab mob! Tell it to the gloating anti-Semites around the world! Tell this the Jews of Gaza!

“With God's help this path shall be one of unity and not division, and not animosity between brothers, of unconditional love and not hatred.” – How dare he who brought disunity and anguish say these words! How dare he call for G-d’s help while doing unholy deeds! Even our enemies would not dream about this act of treachery!

“We tried to reach agreements with the [Arab] Palestinians that would move both peoples towards a path of peace. These were crushed against a wall of hatred and fanaticism.” –History teaches us that it is impossible to reach peace with the Arabs. Hudna is not Peace! If there is no peace, why not persuade the (add) Arabs to withdraw from Jewish lands? It is fair and more logical!
