What May Come After the Evacuation of Jewish Settlers from the Gaza Strip

Interesting statement, whatever the case may be. If true, it could be a statement of propaganda that is actually for the consumption of the Jewish settlers. Many of them are so extreme that the hope of a massive slaughter of Palestinians might be the only thing that would get them out of the way peacefully. On the other hand, Sharon may very well still be one of those extremists. You be the judge. Frankly, nothing out of Israel surprises me any more.

A Warning from Israel

What May Come After the Evacuation of Jewish Settlers from the Gaza Strip


We feel that it is urgent and necessary to raise the alarm regarding what may come during and after evacuation of Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip occupied by Israel in 1967, in the event that the evacuation is implemented.

We held back on getting this statement published and circulated, seeking additional feedback from our peers. The publication in Ha'aretz (22 June 2005) quoting statements by General (Reserves) Eival Giladi, the head of the Coordination and Strategy team of the Prime Minister's Office, motivated us not to delay publication and circulation any further. Confirming our worst fears, General (Res.) Eival Giladi went on record in print and on television to the effect that 'Israel will act in a very resolute manner in order to prevent terror attacks and [militant] fire while the disengagement is being implemented' and that 'If pinpoint response proves insufficient, we may have to use weaponry that causes major collateral damage, including helicopters and planes, with mounting danger to surrounding"
