Benny Gantz lets more of the mask slip

The politician who's become the media darling because of his leftism regurgitates old, dangerous cliches:
Israel Resilience Party chairman and former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz said Israel must find a solution to the settlement crisis.

“We are not looking to control anyone else,” Gantz said in his first interview since announcing his candidacy for prime minister.

Speaking with the Hebrew daily Yediot Aharonot in an article published Wednesday, Gantz said, “We must find a way that does not require us to exercise control over other people.”
Which implies he wants to separate Arabs from Jews, plain and simple. It gets worse:
When asked if he would solve the settlement problem through means similar to the 2005 Disengagement from the Gaza Strip, Gantz praised that unilateral move.

“The Disengagement was carried out with a lot of political consideration,” he said. “All sides had a lot at stake and the state managed to do it without tearing the country apart. It was done legally, carried out by the State of Israel and the IDF, and even though it was very painful for the settlers, it was handled well,” he said.

“We must take the lessons of the Disengagement and implement them in other arenas.”
There were only bad "lessons" in an act carried out by a man who turned out to be a monster - Ariel Sharon, including how it was done most brutally, without any consideration for the people expelled from Gaza, or even the disaster that followed as the Hamas used this to launch rockets at Israeli targets. Now, Gantz is basically saying he's willing to do the same as Sharon did, and enable further disaster for Israel. He's probably even willing to divide Jerusalem for the sake of his futile beliefs. That's what makes Gantz dangerous, aside from how he's far from having any experience as a diplomat.

And that's why the right-wing had better make sure they're united for this election, because to have a repeat of the 1992 election disaster could easily make it possible for such an awful man to come to power, at a time when Iran's also a serious threat with their nuclear weapons.

Update: Dror Eydar, who was appointed Israel's ambassador to Italy, makes another case for why right-wing unity is important.
