How sad and frustrating it is to read an article like the following one.
It seem that we still don't learn our lesson, that the Torah states the Holy Land belongs exclusively to the descendants of Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya'akov.
May Hashem have mercy with us.
This is what Vice Premier Haim Ramon thinks and says:
Israel should move faster to dismantle outposts and do more to enable the Palestinians to build two industrial parks in the West Bank, Vice Premier Haim Ramon said Saturday.
Vice Premier Haim Ramon told Israel Radio it was time for the defense establishment to end drawn-out negotiations with settler leaders on the fate of the outposts.
While Vice Premier Haim Ramon acknowledged that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak were making efforts to reach a peaceful agreement with settler leaders, he stressed that outposts would have to be dismantled regardless of whether or not such an accord was achieved, even at the price of a violent confrontation.
"The military insists on security arrangements," he said. "On the other hand, the broader view requires us to take certain risks, and I am among those who believe that it would have been possible to reach certain agreements with the Palestinians on civil affairs."
