Arutz Sheva: U.S. President Barack Obama said at the Saban Forum on Saturday that there must not be another Gaza in the Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria.
“This transition period requires some restraint on the part of the Palestinians as well. They don’t get everything they want on day one,” he said, according to the AFP news agency.
“The Israeli people can’t expect a replica of Gaza in the West Bank,” Obama added. “That is unacceptable.”
Opinion: In a rare moment of agreement with President Obama, the Gaza matter was a disastrous decision that continues to bring mayhem to the Jewish state. Let’s review the Gaza Expulsion Plan:
Gaza was recaptured by Israel during the 1967 war. No nation in history has ever given back land taken in a defensive action. But Israel, in 2005 under Ariel Sharon, did just that. Israel gave the Gaza strip to the Palestinians in the vain hope for peace.
George Bush joined in with Sharon in the land for peace deal in total violation of Joel 3:1-2. Both men paid the price that God promised in the covenant that He made with Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you …” Genesis 12:3.
The Gaza expulsion plan deadline was August 15, 2005. The eviction of all Israeli residents, demolition of the residential buildings and evacuation of associated security personnel from the Gaza Strip was completed by September 12, 2005. Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest in US history, hit the US on August 23, 2005.
The following year, Sharon went into a coma and the Bush presidency suffered widespread criticism for his handling of Katrina and lost the majority in Congress in 2006. The Bush presidency never recovered, and neither did Sharon, who remains in a vegetative state.
