I say that demanding a settlement-free West Bank is no more than demanding ethnic cleansing.
I say that Israel should be no more expected to accept that the West Bank should have no Jews than the Arabs would be expected to accept Israelis expelling all the Arabs from Israel! I remind you that Israel is 20% Arab - and all the Arabs have all the same rights as the Jews there - which is MUCH MORE than Arabs anywhere in Arabia.
Sharon made the bold move to unilaterally and voluntarily make Gaza a "Jew-free zone" in order to be better able to defend the Jewish state. But it would be a BIG MISTAKE for anyone to read into that the possiblilty that Sharon would make the West Bank ethinically cleansed of Jews. too. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
And why should it!? If Jews and Arabs are ever truly going to be at peace, then they should be able to live peacefully within each other's borders! AS ARABS DO WITHIN ISRAEL...
I'LL GO FURTHER: UNTIL JEWS CAN LIVE AS FREELY IN ARAB NATIONS AS ARABS DO IN ISRAEL THERE WILL BE NO PEACE.
And the sooner the pro-Arab anti-Semite schmucks in the UN and the EU - like Anan and Dugard - get this the better!
