Isn’t it ironic?
It seems like it was just yesterday that we were going bananas over evacuating settlements in Gaza. We were making a bold move for peace by abandoning the farms and homes of Israeli communities in the Gaza strip.
Israel left the Gaza strip to make peace, and now Israel has had to return and reoccupy these settlements because the Palestinians have shown us that they don’t WANT peace.
Do you remember the rhetoric? The furor? The herds of journalists exclaiming on the birth of a new era? Of peace in our time?
Well, you should remember also that this is yet another tragic rerun of a dark comedy that’s been playing since the birth of the PREVIOUS century. It wasn’t funny the first time.
It isn’t funny now.
