- Israel Criticized for Declining Invitation to National Suicide – Charles Krauthammer
Israel followed high-minded advice in 2005 and terminated its occupation and evacuated Gaza. That earned it (temporary) praise from the West. And from the Palestinians? Not peace, not reconciliation, not normal relations, but a decade of unrelenting terrorism and war.
Israel is now being asked – pressured – to repeat that same disaster on the West Bank. That would bring the terror war, quite fatally, to the very heart of Israel – Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ben-Gurion Airport. Israel is now excoriated for declining that invitation to national suicide. (Washington Post)
