Yossi Ben-Aharon, former head of Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir's Bureau, says that the Likud MKs should be worried not about the disengagement referendum, but rather about deposing Ariel Sharon.
Ben-Aharon told Arutz-7's Shimon Cohen that Sharon's disengagement plan is "more dangerous than the Oslo Accords," because it is merely his first stage in his plan to establish a Palestinian state.
Ben-Aharon said that like the late Yitzchak Rabin before him, he views a Palestinian state as something that Israel cannot agree to or accept.
Sharon and his aide Dov Weisglass "used all sorts of tricks and deception to implement this plan," Ben-Aharon said. "Sharon is an existential danger to the State of Israel. If he sees that his plan is succeeding, he will continue with more."
Ben-Aharon quoted Meir Har-Tzion, who is a close friend of Sharon and a founding member with Sharon of the famous counter-terror Paratrooper Unit 101 in the 1950s. Speaking with Maariv last week, Har-Tzion called the disengagement plan a holocaust, warned of the severe dangers of a Palestinian state, and called upon IDF soldiers and officers to refuse disengagement orders to uproot Jews from their homes. Sharon "has gone crazy... He has become a very dangerous man, Har-Tzion said.
"I have decided to start a daily campaign to call on Likud members, wherever and whenever possible, to depose Sharon as head of the party," Ben-Aharon said. "Sharon has violated the party's constitution, and plans to establish a Palestinian state in the heart of the country."
A potential one, at least. And that's why Hamas and IJ are willing to comply to with this ceasefire. ....for the time being. Syrian/Iranian-backed Hezbollah is a different story, however -- they have their own agenda.
