What Are We Doing?

Via Debka:
"The Palestinians are about to fulfill a dream. Israel’s pullout from the Gaza Strip next week is but the preface to more withdrawals on the road to a Palestinian state with Jerusalem its capital."

So said the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday, August 9.

Palestinian leaders have every right to the mood of euphoria that Abu Mazen voiced on their behalf.

For without conceding a single point, giving anything in return, setting the Middle East road map in motion - or even starting to crack down on terrorists, the Palestinians will soon be granted:

1. The Gaza Strip rid of every last Jew and Israeli as their exclusive domain.

2. For the first time, they will share an open border with the largest Arab nation, Egypt.

3. A deepwater port over whose shipping traffic Israel will have no control.

4. A territorial link from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank.
