Israel - At a conference on Monday marking the 10-year anniversary of disengagement from Gaza, Zionist Union chairman MK Isaac Herzog said the unilateral pullout was a “mistake” that must “not be repeated.”

HAARETZ.com (http://bit.ly/1SC3iSD) reports that Herzog made his comments while speaking in Nitzan, just north of Ashkelon which is now home to many of the Gush Katif evacuees.

Herzog’s comments echoed statements he made last week in which he cautioned that while the “general principle’ of the pullout was the “right move,” its “implementation” was “full of mistakes.”

Herzog warned that any similar future situation should only be remedied by reaching an “agreement” that “stands up to all the difficulties.”

The "implementation" was not wrong. The unlawful and violent behavior of the right wing settlers who defied lawful orders to withdraw from GK and the other settlements on Gaza lands that were being returned to the Palestinians was the real chilul hashem. They attacked the brave young men and women of the security forces who were carrying out their orders properly. To now make heroes out of these thugs is the real obscenity.

Of course it was wrong. Look what has happened since. Did we get what was bargained for??? Where is the peace???? Where is the security? Look what they did to the amazing homes and businesses? Sharon was punished immediately and the rest of Israel have suffered ever since. Bibi is smarter.

We knew it before they did it; we knew it was wrong when they did it, and it is obvious to all now after the fact that it was the stupidest thing Sharon and his mentally disarranged henchmen could have done.

#1. you can only return something to someone who owned it in the first place and the Arabs never did. The results speak for themselves and should demonstrate to anyone with a brain what the Arab goal really is. (sorry to offend you with that comment).

Aside from the results, what of the implementation that destroyed people's lives and were never compensated, were good? Do you know that many of those Jews who were displaced were forced to continue paying mortgages for homes the government took away from them. Again, how was that implementation good?

" The unlawful and violent behavior of the right wing settlers."

Nice of you to label people so you can denigrate them without consideration for the merits of their case. Are you willing to fight for anything? The Government's action was unlawful. If the U.S. government decided to take your home away just to give it to someone else who makes a false claim, would you just hand over the keys without protest? If so, give me your address and I'll make arrangements.
