Yoram Ettinger Speaks

The following piece was written by Mr. Ettinger about a year ago, about Disengagements in general.

Mr. Ettinger, if you recall, is one of the Israeli politicians forced out of the government by Sharon when they voiced opposition to the Disnegagement. You've got to love Democracy, huh?

In any event, he is a very clear thinker on the subject. Also, you might want to take a look at his website, which you'll now find posted with my links.

Anyway, take a read. Like I said, it's good.

The proposed Disengagement is a hybrid of the Oslo Process and the Land-For-Peace mentality, which have been flawed logically, strategically and morally.

The Land-For-Peace (LFP) school of thoughts expects Israel to disengage from its scarcest asset - territory, which is 0.2% (11,000sqm) of Arab territory (5.56 million sqm), which is 50% and 30% larger than the US and Europe respectively (not including Iran�s 643,000sqm). In return, LFP expects Arab countries to accord Israel that which they have yet to share with one another - comprehensive peace, compliance and an end to violence and terrorism.
