Prof. Aumann: Bad treatment of expellees from Gaza is national disgrace

Nobel prize winner Professor Yisrael Aumann has said that the Israeli government's treatment of Jews expelled from Gaza is a national disgrace:
Nobel Prize Winner Prof. Aumann at the Herzliya Conference: "The treatment of the expellees is a national disgrace, and everyone is silent... Israel's mad rush for peace has the opposite effect."

[...]

Many of the thousands of people expelled from Gush Katif and northern Shomron are still in hotels, he noted, "even now, a half-year after the expulsion, without the most basic conditions. Most of them are not yet in permanent housing, or even in reasonable temporary housing. There is no work, the children are in despair, and there have been some suicide attempts. Many families, and maybe even most, have not seen a red cent in compensation money, and those who have received are spending it on daily food."

A report released earlier this month by the Gush Katif-L'maan Acheinu Task Force stated that more than half the families had received nothing at all of the promised compensation. The remaining families received an average of 50,000 shekels (just over $10,000), and only some 5% received the entire compensation payment. Those living in pre-fab housing, known as caravilot, are paying monthly rent of $450 - totally using up their advance payment within two years.

"We're not talking about enemies or lawbreakers," Prof. Aumann said, "but rather productive people who built a glorious settlement enterprise, and whose lives have now been destroyed - and yet everyone just ignores it. The entire media and everyone else; no one hears a word about it, no one relates to it, everyone ignores it. I, for one, will not be silent, and I am not silent."
As of this writing, there's also a podcast video available on the webpage, which you can view if you like too.

Prof. Aumann is certainly a very admirable man indeed.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
