Bush: My secretary of state says you must withdraw
from the West Bank.
Sharon: Your secretary of state is not the ultimate
authority on this
Bush: Let me get this straight. You're defying the
express wishes of the POTUS?
Sharon: There's no need to get snippy.
and so on. . .
seriously, I was wondering why you're so
anti-Netanyahu. For all the talk of how Netanyahu is
"to the right of Sharon", the only difference I see is
that Netanyahu is more competent and acts with the
courage of his convictions. And why is Barak
considered so discredited?
In any case, here is my take on the moraliy of the
situation: if the Palestinians dropped their weapons,
the killing on both sides would stop almost
immediately. If the Israelis dropped their weapons, it
would be a second Rwanda.
