Sharon: Hero and Goat of Gaza

by Patrick J. Buchanan
Posted Aug 22, 2005

To see Jewish settlers evicted from homes they have lived in for decades, taking weeping wives and children back to Israel, is heart-wrenching. To see Israeli settlers spit in the faces of Israeli soldiers and call them "Nazis" evokes only disgust.

Who do these people think they are? Were it not for the Israeli army, they would not have lasted a week in Gaza. Gratitude isn't the long suit of the Zionist fanatic, two of whom murdered Palestinians to protest the removal of Jews from lands that do not and have never belonged to Israel.

For his resolve in removing the settlers, despite threats on his life, Ariel Sharon deserves credit. But for the settlers' being there, where they never belonged, he bears full blame. Both the tragedy and the debacle of this past week are Sharon's doing.

Gaza was never part of Israel. Its 1.3 million impoverished people are Palestinian refugees from the Arab-Israeli War of 1948, or their children and grandchildren. The Gaza Strip was overrun by Israel in the Six-Day War of June 1967, but never returned to Egypt.

In recent years, Israelis have trickled into Gaza and, though never numbering even 1 percent of the population, came to occupy a third of the land. They are colonizers in every sense of the word.

Israel's colonization of Gaza, using squatters subsidized by the state, was a violation of international law. The Fourth Geneva Convention prohibits military occupiers from moving civilians onto their occupied land. And the Gaza land-grab was carried out in brazen defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions and over the protests of Israel's great patron, the United States, which once candidly called these Israeli enclaves what they are: "illegal settlements."

But because the U.S. government lacked the moral courage to tell the Israelis to stop building settlements and start tearing them down -- even as we showered Israel with $3 billion in annual aid -- the Labor and Likud parties ignored the pathetic peeps of protest from our presidents to please desist.

The rampant animosity against America in the Arab world is but one of the fruits of our outsourcing Middle East policy to Tel Aviv.

What is going to happen now is wearily predictable.

After Sharon has withdrawn the last settler, he will demand $2.2 billion for his heroic achievement. The request, already in, breaks down to $1 million for every family moved out of Gaza. Bush and Congress, who only in May raised the death benefit for families of G.I.s killed in Iraq from $12,000 to $100,000, will fall all over one another expediting the latest tranche of U.S. tax dollars.

Then the scenario will play out as Dov Weisglass, ex-chief of staff to Sharon, mockingly described. Under the deal Weisglass cut with pliant Bush aides in 2004, ratified in Bush's public letter to Sharon, Israeli disengagement from Gaza and a few outposts on the West Bank "supplies the amount of formaldehyde necessary so there will not be a political process with the Palestinians."

"What I effectively agreed to with the Americans was that part of the settlements would not be dealt with at all," Weisglass said, "and the rest will not be dealt with until the Palestinians turn into Finns." The "road map" -- the peace plan agreed to by the United States, United Nations, European Union and Russia -- Weisglass merrily told the paper Haaretz, is dead.

If Sharon now informs President Bush that Israel has made a sacrifice of Gaza, and no more progress toward a viable Palestinian state can be made until all violence ends and Hamas and Islamic Jihad are disarmed, what will Bush do?

Nothing. Should Bush press Sharon to negotiate an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and an enclave in Arab East Jerusalem as a future capital of Palestine, Sharon will howl, the Christian right will accuse Bush of selling out Israel, Tom DeLay will sponsor a joint resolution opposing pressure on Israel and Nancy Pelosi will happily endorse. The neoconservatives will cry "Munich!" and, if Condi Rice -- who has shown moxie on the Mideast -- pushes too hard, she will be instantly dropped from neocon wish lists of future presidents.

"Bibi" Netanyahu, who resigned as finance minister over Gaza, says the forced removal of settlers is a victory for Hamas. He is right. Had Hamas not attacked settlers in Gaza and civilians in Israel, Sharon would never have relinquished a square inch.

Terrorism is an immoral and illegitimate weapon of war. But the original sin that ignited this war was the illegal -- indeed, insane -- seizure of and settlement on Palestinian land, and the stubborn refusal by Israel to conclude a peace when they held the whip hand, which they will not hold forever.

As Weisglass warns, they will now behave the same way on the West Bank -- and with the same result a decade hence.

Where there is no vision, the people perish.


Fighting Israel's Wall

[posted online on July 14, 2004]

The International Court of Justice has ruled Israel's "Separation Wall" illegal and has called on Israel to dismantle the wall. Nineteen days ago I came to Israel to protest that wall and to bear witness to its devastating effects on the Palestinian population. Instead I was detained by Israel police upon arrival at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport and have since been held in immigration detention awaiting deportation. I have been labeled a threat to "security," and the judge has called my camera a weapon. It seems to me the only threat I pose to Israel is a public relations one.

I have been asked, Why did I come from outside Israel to participate in political activity here? The first and simplest answer is because it is the right thing to do. The international community needs to insist on justice for all, for the sake of all. Secondly, I came from outside Israel to engage in political activity here because my country, the United States, bears the greatest responsibility for perpetuating the violence here.

The United States gives more foreign aid to Israel than to all African countries combined and crucial political support for nearly all of its policies concerning Palestinians, even those that violate international law, as does construction of the wall. I came to Israel because my tax money pays for Apache helicopters and tank shells like the ones recently shot at a peaceful protest in Gaza, and because the labels on the tear-gas containers we pick up in demonstrations say "Made in Pennsylvania." My taxes are sent to Israel in violation of US laws. The US Foreign Military Assistance Act prohibits military assistance to any country that has a pattern of consistently violating human rights.

During a visit to the West Bank a year ago I saw that the wall is being built primarily inside the West Bank on Palestinian land, cutting off thousands of Palestinians from their farmland, trapping many in enclaves and devastating the Palestinian economy. With that knowledge, I returned here to say the exact same thing that the ICJ has now declared.

I intended to join a march organized by the International Solidarity Movement, a Palestinian-led movement working for Palestinian self-determination and to end the Israeli occupation. Through nonviolent actions, the ISM volunteers bear witness to the effects of military occupation. We act where our governments fail to act. We report what the international media fail to report.

For daring to witness and report the brutal effects the wall is taking on the Palestinian population, I have been deemed a "security threat" by the State of Israel, denied entry to both Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, and threatened with expulsion. My first appeal to challenge my deportation was denied yesterday. However, because I know that my efforts to stand against human rights violations like the construction of the wall are supported by international law, I am appealing this decision to the Israeli Supreme Court and will remain in prison until my case is reviewed there.

From Ben Gurion's detention center I have experienced first-hand a scaled-down version of the system of injustice experienced daily by Palestinians, who call on us to pay attention to the prison walls being built around them. In light of the decision made by the International Court of Justice, and in light of America's ongoing support of Israel's defiance of international law, I urge people to answer the call and participate in bringing to the world the Palestinian voices calling for freedom and justice.

Total Pages: 4 Words: 1021 Sources: 1 Citation Style: APA Document Type: Essay

Essay Instructions: This assignment asks you to develop a critical analysis centered on one or more of the texts we have read since Spring Break. Do NOT use secondary sources. Using secondary sources IN ANY WAY OR FORM will result in a lower grade. I am interested to see how YOU engage with the text, not how you interpert, summarize, and paraphrase a larger body of criticism.

A strong essay relies on a strong thesis statement. The thesis statement needs to be discernable and focused. The rest of your essay needs to extend and support the thesis by a close analysis of the text and by using textual evidence as support. Do not forget to incorporate proper in-text citations and a work cited page.

Choose ONE of the questions below and write an essay on it:

1)Compare and Contrast Maupassant's "The Necklace" and Gogol's "The Overcoat". What do these writers claim about determinism? What is the role of fate in these texts?


2) Imagine that you are Mustafa. Write a letter back to Kanafani. Your letter should address specific points Kanafani brings in "Letter from Gaza".

Please keep in mind that I am an ESL student, so keeping wording simple is a must! Thanks!!
