Public Figures Express Regret For Disengagement

Read it and weep.

At least they are doing penance.

Maj.-Gen (ret.) Yiftah Ron-Tal, IDF ground forces commander at the time of the Disengagement: In the year preceding the Disengagement, the army trained mostly for dismantling communities, and that prevented it from preparedness for the war in Lebanon. The training for the Disengagement not only prevented preparedness for such a war, but dragged it away from the consensus as a people’s army. It is nearly certain that the excitement of those who led the decision and implementation of this is directly tied to the big failure in Lebanon…I still cannot understand how Israel gave up parts of its land willingly and with abandon, and how the residents connected to that land were turned into criminals, instead of raising their dedication as a banner of preserving the Jewish identity of the state of Israel.

  1. First, this list of quotes appeared on Arutz Sheva, not HaAretz and not on YNET and not even in the Jerusalem Post, so it is not reaching the “middle” of Israel polity.

    Second, most of the quotes are from 2006. Where are the current comments by these same people following an additional year of increased shelling of Sderot and Ashkelon?

    Why does Labor or Kadima have a single member left in their ranks? No one gave Jimmy Carter a second four years! Who is pulling the strings here?
