It is comforting to know that Israels leaders, for the last 15 years, have and continue to make the right decisions at the right time.
Shimon Peres was right when he spearheaded the move to let Yassar Arafat back into Israel and be given the Gaza Strip and Jericho on a silver platter. Peres and then prime minister Yitzchak Rabin were right when they signed the Oslo peace deal essentially ceding most of Judea and Samaria to the PLO, all in exchange for for in exchange for anything?
The Palestinian Liberation Organization whose very existence was predicated on sowing death and destruction on Israel had changed, the leaders told us. Ariel Sharon and his Defense minister were right when they decided to uproot 26 Jewish settlements in the Gaza strip in a unilateral withdrawal dubbed the disengagement . The said that this was a window of opportunity for Israel, an opportunity that would bring greater peace and security. Did it?
Ehud Barak was right to unilaterally withdraw from Lebanon in a fortnight saying that no one would now dare to shoot any missles from Lebanon into Israel. It just wont happen. Yep, the leaders are always right. Always!
