Weg Mit Uns - Bitte! PM Sharon pushes "a kinder gentler" Jewish deportation from the West Bank
Arab Occupied 'Terror'tory: IDF escorts terrorists to homes in Hebron as Jewish residents are put under closure
MIM: Israeli PM Sharon assured the public that deportation of Jews from their homes in Gaza that"Israel will not tolerate the operation taking place under enemy fire" and that the graves of terrorist victims "would not be left behind in enemy territory. The only inadvertant foray into honesty was made by head of the deportations, Yonatan Bassi, who referred to a Judenrein Westbank as "enemy territory".
MIM:Political Correctness Uber Alles:
MIM: In an even more obscene move the leftwing Israeli Supreme Court showed their democratic 'impartiality" by approving the move of an Arab family into the Jewish city of Hebron. The Israeli Army was ordered to escort the terrorists, whose older family members had a role in the killing of their Jewish neighbors in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, and whose younger members had more recently, been involved with throwing grenades into a Jewish nursery school yard) to a home directly next to Jews.
PM Pushes for More Sensitive Pullout
A day after meeting Gaza settlement representatives for the first time in months, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon convened a high-level government meeting on disengagement in his office Wednesday and pushed a kinder, gentler evacuation.
Sharon reportedly opened up the discussion by saying there was a need to respect the Gush Katif settlers and allow them an honorable departure from the area.
"There is a need to enable normal life to continue until the moment of evacuation from their homes," Sharon was quoted as saying. "We must have patience. Arrests need to be the last resort, and done only if there is no other choice. It also must be made clear to the Palestinians that if there will be a terror attack, we will respond in a very harsh manner."
In addition, Sharon and Defense Minister Mofaz decided that IDF soldiers in their regular army service will have to take part in the evacuation of settlements.
Mofaz, according to Army Radio, said that in light of the reduced time frame of the plan's implementation, army troops will have to man, alongside policemen, the first line of evacuation.
Mofaz also said that the disengagement would be unilateral, although there was the possibility of coordinating different elements of it with the Palestinians.
He also added that Israel will not tolerate the operation taking place under Palestinian fire, and that there would likely be attempts by terrorist organizations to disrupt the process with terrorist attacks.
Sharon also discussed the re-internment of some 47 bodies, some of them victims of terror attacks, buried in Gush Katif. He reportedly directed the defense establishment to get the consent of each and every family before moving the bodies.
Sharon was quoted as saying there was a need to explain to the families the importance of moving the bodies, with Disengagement Authority head Yonatan Bassi saying that graves should not be left behind in enemy territory.
Mofaz said at the meeting that the evacuation was expected to take four weeks, and should be done as quickly as possible to reduce protests and friction inside Israel.
He noted that no decision has yet been made on what to do with the homes that the settlers would leave behind, while Sharon said that the synagogues would be moved back into Israel.
Mofaz's comments came a day after US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in an AP interview, urged Israel not to engage in "wanton destruction" of the homes that will be left behind. "There needs to be some coordination on what's being done," she said, "and I think there will be."
The meeting was attended by Sharon, Mofaz, Bassi, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and high level IDF, security and police officials, who reported on preparations for the evacuation.
Mofaz, according to his spokesman, characterized the operation as a "National objective and test of democracy and the rule of law. It is a diplomatic objective that has to be carried out with sensitivity, determination and success while maintaining the security and respecting those to be evacuated."
Mofaz presented the basic principles guiding the Defense Ministry in preparation for the evacuation. These include carrying it out in "one go," and not evacuate one area, and then have to wait a long period before moving on to the next target; do it in as short a time as possible; close off Gaza and northern Samaria to keep outsiders from coming in to try and block the withdrawal; and maintain a proportionate number of soldiers and policemen doing the actual evacuation.
The defense minister said that a number of issues have yet to be determined, including the date when Gaza and northern Samaria will be closed to anyone trying to get in from the outside, and the ratio of how many police to each soldier would be in the so-called "inner circle" pulling people away and making arrests.
