Winston sums up his article from the start in this way; “When you hear absolute, unqualified guarantees by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Vice Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres or Defense Minister Sha’ul Mofaz about Jewish land not – I repeat, not – to be transferred to Arab Muslims, be assured that transferring it is exactly what they are planning. Their a priori denials are their ‘trial balloons’ to see how much opposition the denied action will provoke.”
Here is another take on the refugees rebuilding process. Two problems that I have with the writer’s perspective; One problem I see is that, since the refugee families have been robbed at legal gunpoint by the government of Israel of their homes and possessions and have little hope of seeing any of the “compensation”, how are they able to move on? Rebuilding takes money and credit, all of which they have been stripped of by the Sharon regime.
The other problem with the “Humpty Dumpty” premise is, as seems indicated in The Dispersal Plan , that the secular government of Israel so fears “… such strong tribes, so strong they became known for providing the armed forces with the finest, most dedicated, most skilled soldiers, or that they would bring to the country much needed cash from their export industries. The potent Judea, Samaria and Gaza communities are not what Sharon and the secular Zionists had in mind.”

Did Feiglin [The Fool on the Hill] call it right or what?
Feiglin writes, “The Israeli media wept more for the poor cats to be left behind in the destroyed settlements than for the human beings to be uprooted and rendered homeless. We have become a sector that is less than human — sub-human — a problem that at one stage or another will have to be solved with finality. In German it is called untermentsch. This is the real crisis.”
“We so wanted to be Israelis. We so wanted to be the most Zionistic, the greatest at settlement, the top in the army. We tried so very hard to show that we are a sector that gives of itself, that we are pioneers, that we are well educated and have values and Heaven forbid and perish the thought not violent.”
I’ll believe this when I see it. Further I expect smoke and mirrors if such debate ever, in fact, takes place. Seeking real men of courage to step up in the clutch to tell it like it is and let the cabinet ministry chips fall where they may. More than the refugees welfare is at stake — the safety, security and welfare of Israel is on the line. But lo, my prediction, no Knesset profiles in courage here. But this is one prediction that I hope I’m wrong about.
Please note here that all of this “storming” by a few dozen Jews took place between 7:45 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. “in contravention of the High Court ruling” permitting prayer as reported in a previous post on 19 October.
It seems that the overwhelming majority of refugee families from Gush Katif and the Shomron towns who have yet to receive shekel one of compensation are not the only ones being lied to by the Sharon regime. Now it seems that some of their evictors, 280 of the new Border Guard officers who had been hired with the promise that their employment would be long-term beyond the “disengagement,” are now being terminated. The terminations are under the guise of “severe financial constraints in the police department, under whose auspices the Border Guards fall.”
The headline story links again tell all:
One viewing or reading this blog should realize that often a group of headlines tells it’s own story if the articles are read, without the need for author’s comments. Such is true here:
