Israel - Marking 10 Year Anniversary Herzog Says Gush Katif Pullout Was A Mistake
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.”
