"Gaza changed everything"

Dr. Mordecai Kedar explains perfectly why many Israelis today don't buy into the fiasco of a two state solution:
In an exclusive Arutz Sheva interview, Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar, of Bar-Ilan University’s BESA Center (Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies), dismissed calls for the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state in Judea and Samaria, saying that the number of Israelis who still believe in the "Two-State Solution" can "fit in two telephone booths".

"And two years from now they will fit into a half of a telephone booth," he added dryly.

When asked why, Dr. Kedar responded that "Gaza changed everything."

"We gave land, they fired rockets into Israel," he explained, in reference to the 2005 "Disengagement Plan", in which Gaza's 21 Jewish communities were expelled, along with 4 in northern Samaria (Shomron). Far from achieving security for Israel's southern population centers, the pullout resulted in an increase in deadly rocket attacks against neighboring Israeli towns and villages, and required the IDF to mount two separate counterterrorism operations, in 2009 and 2012.
Bingo. That's why the dramatic shift down to so little who support such a bottom of the barrel idea.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • 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.
