The Netanyahu Perplex

As an agnostic, I am not greatly moved by religious arguments for the drawing of borders by Israelis or by anybody else. National security concerns are another matter. Those make sense to me. Finance Minister (and former PM) Benyamin Netanyahu has just left the Israeli government because he thinks the Gaza pullout will be seen as a victory for terror and create even greater problems for Israel and the West in general. I hope he is wrong, but he makes cogent points in this interview with Carolyn Glick.

UPDATE: Atlas Shrugs backs Eliot Jager’s argument in support of Sharon.
