Does "Palestinian sacrifices" translate in "exploding martyrs"?

Paleostinian: So if we sacrifice... more, then they'll... pull out more. Sounds like a plan!

Sharon dumped Gaza at Bush's request.
It's part of the war on terror.
The gloves come off now.

Israel provides us with supplies, ports, and intelligence in the Gulf.

So Sharon did this to get favors from Bush by selling or leasing us access though Israel? Or is it an attempt to make Gaza a more target rich environment? When the pull out is done, has Sharon given the Pali's enough rope to hang themselves? When the terrorism continues, will this be seen a set up for re-occupation of Gaza?

You're kidding, right? The Bush Administration was unhappy about Sharon unilaterally pulling out of Gaza. It upset "the peace process," don'tcha know? Israel wasn't supposed to do anything regarding land or settlements until it reached a "global solution" with the Palis - hopefully brokered by the U.S. - which of course, is impossible because Israel is not giving up Jerusalem, ever. Sharon changed the equation of the never-ending "peace process" by building the wall and by getting the settlers out of Gaza. He is done negotiating with terrorists. Who knows what he is going to do next, but he isn't taking orders from George Bush, that's for sure.

Mothers' reminiscing!

Two Arab mothers are sitting in the cafe chatting over a pint of
goat's milk.

The older of the mothers pulls her bag out and starts flipping
through pictures and they start reminiscing.

"This is my oldest son Mohammed. He's 24 years old now"

"Yes, I remember him as a baby" says the other mother cheerfully.

"He's a martyr now though" mum confides.

"Oh so sad dear" says the other.

"And this is my second son Kalid. He's 21"

"Oh, I remember him," says the other happily, "he had such curly
hair when he was born".

"He's a martyr too " says mum quietly.

"Oh gracious me ...." says the other.

"And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He's 18",
she whispers.

"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, "I remember when he first
started school".

"He's a martyr also," says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Arab mother looks
wistfully at the photographs and says... "They blow up so fast, don't they?"

Does it really matter?

Here's the scenario:

They attack.
Israel calls for early elections.
Netanyahu is elected with the moral high ground, popular support, and US agreement to defend Israel.
Smackdown.

I would say it was all worthwhile if they turned the Gaza strip into a luxury resort employing "Palestinians" and made a boatload of money. Instaead, it's probably going to turn into yet another hellhole.

Sharon needs to call a press conference and say the Gaza pull out has been canceled. And would all Israeli's please return to their homes.

I have one problem with your scenario:

If Israel needs the U.S. to help defend itself against Palestinians in Gaza, then it's not even a viable nation and ought to vanish tomorrow.

Israel does not need the US to defend itself against Palestinians. Not hardly.

Israel needs the US to stand on its side so that Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Lybia, etc., do not get any ideas.

Israel can wipe all of those countries off the map if it wanted to.

The biggest threat to Israel's existence is not Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Palestinian terrorists, etc. -- it's internal conflict between its own various political and religious factions.

The thing that REALLY pi&&es them off is the fact that Israel has taken land that was almost completely barren and turned it into a thriving agricultural hotspot.

Abbas: Gaza Pullout Result of Patience

By Associated Press

August 19, 2005, 11:59 AM EDT

RAFAH, Gaza Strip -- Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said Friday that Israel's Gaza pullout resulted from Palestinian "sacrifices" and "patience."

Abbas also promised to rebuild houses in Gaza destroyed by Israel. He made his comments before thousands of cheering Palestinians at Gaza's closed airport.

"This pullout is a result of our sacrifice, of our patience, the sacrifice of our people, the steadfastness, and the wise people of our nation," Abbas said.

My guess is now that many Pal. terrorists are grouped into one small target area, KA-BOOM, assuming the terrorism doesn't stop. And it won't...

Sadly, that seems to be a problem inherent in all democracies . . .

However, I do think that after the Gaza pullout, any ensuing Palestinian violence will unify the Israelis. The appeasers will realize (even if it is temporary) that appeasement was ineffective and will realize (again, temporarily) that you cannot negotiate with terrorists.

I think we'll see Ehud Barak and Shimon Perez arm in arm with Netanyahu and Sharon, calling for retaliation. I have already heard Barak saying that was the next step if Abbas did not hold up his end of the bargain. And with the settlers out of there, they can blast the junk out of Gaza . . .

As of today, Israel's most serious exposure to terrorism comes not from Gaza, but from the West Bank.

This is why the Israeli government insisted on vacating those settlements. Having those settlements in an area surrounded by Palestinians represents a major security problem.
