Editor's Note: Israeli Settlement Evacuations

[Media Source*]

(Washington Post) The first Israeli military convoy left a huge staging area at dawn Wednesday, heading toward Gaza to forcibly evacuate Jewish settlers who defied the deadline to leave.

On Tuesday, as the deadline passed, thousands of settlers and their supporter pelted Israeli troops with eggs and stones and danced around the Torah in celebration of their resistance to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's historic plan to disengage from the Palestinians.

Editor's Note: Although every journalist, blogger and free thinking person has their opinion about the Settlement Evacuation, I have for the most part abstained from giving a clear opinion regarding the matter. Forcing people to leave from their homes is regrettable, but Sharon (who ironically pioneered the settlements in the first place) seems to have a reason beyond "Washington told me so" as the main motivation for relocating people from their homes, some of which go back to generations.

My feeling is that Sharon is looking towards the future. No, I do not mean Palestine, but Iran. From where I am sitting, Iran is Israel's biggest threat right now, and by Sharon pulling back troops as well as settlements (and putting a wall in it's place) he is not only redefining the border before the UN can but also satisfying US demands in order to win Bush's favor. Although I have no proof of this (thus the reason for this "editor's note") I believe that their is some hidden agreement between Israel and the US that they will both strike Iran if Israel is attacked (something Israel wasn't allowed to do to Iraq during both gulf wars).

As I stated before this is only a hunch, and since I have no way to prove this with links or mysterious sources, I will simply leave it at that--a simple reference note in which history will have to verify whether this blogger was right or not. Shalom.
