Natan Sharansky's View
By Mike Rappaport
Previously, I quoted from Benjamin Netanyahu's resignation letter outlining his disagreement with the withdrawel from Gaza. Here, I quote from a report on Natan Sharansky's resignation letter, of May 2nd, 2005,also opposing the withdrawel:
In his resignation letter, Sharansky told Sharon any concessions to the PLO should be based on sincere democratic reforms, and explained that unilaterally withdrawing will instead "weaken the prospects for building a free Palestinian society and at the same time strengthen the forces of terror."Sharanksy develops these points at greater length in his excellent book, The Case for Democracy, which I am now finishing. I shall have more to say about it in the near future.
