GAZA WITHDRAWAL - CIRCLING THE WAGONS OR SLIPPERY SLOPE?

The inexorable eviction of the Gaza settlers continues amid heart-rending scenes of IDF soldiers dragging children, women and men from their homes. Most are religious Jews who believe they have also fulfilled an important national mission at the their country's calling and have now been evicted by a Prime Minister who for some reason has changed his mind. Some of these residents and their children have been killed in Palestinian attacks and all have come under the repeated shelling of more than 5,000 Qassam rockets and mortars launched since the outbreak of Palestinian violence in September, 2000.Why has Ariel Sharon changed course so dramatically? What can be expected from Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas who declares he will not confiscate the terrorists' weapons and Hamas that vows to use those arms to attack Israel when the time is ripe?

The U.S. boycott of an Israeli arms sale to China has apparently not affected the very close ties between Israel and China. Chinese Foreign Minister Zhaoxing continued his trip to Israel saying his country wishes to maintain its relations with Israel in all spheres including the 'army'. He also announced that China has placed Israel on its recommended tourist map and hotels here had better start building more rooms for thousands of Chinese tourists who will invade Jerusalem, the city of peace.

After members of the House, Holocaust survivors and foreign diplomats stood in a moment of silence, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon took the rostrum.

He accused the Allied powers of bombing targets near Auschwitz, but refusing to bomb the gas chambers or the railway that was transporting 10,000 Jews daily to their executions. Sharon declared that Israel has learned the lesson; she must depend only upon herself and will never give up its right to self-defense.
