Condi Rice announced that the United States policy is an open border between Israel and Gaza.
"When the Israelis withdraw from Gaza, it cannot be sealed or isolated ... with the Palestinian people closed in after the withdrawal," Rice told a news conference.What kind of crazyness is this? The Palis are attacking Israelis every day with rockets and mortars and American policy is that they ought to be allowed free passage to co-ordinate and recruit from the Western territories? This is madness.
"We are committed to connectivity between Gaza and the West Bank and we are committed to openness and freedom of movement for the Palestinian people," she said.
What is the purpose of making the Israelis more vulnerable than they are to more attacks?
I supported the withdrawal with the proviso that its purpose was to isolate the murderers from their intended victims. What Rice is asking that the Israelis open themselves to murder. Why?
What possible purpose can be accomplished by such requests?
It is my firm opinion that the murderers should be isolated from Israel until they give up their goal of destroying the Israeli State.
If you believe as I do now is the time to write the President and give him a piece of your mind. Israel should be encouraged to seal its borders to isolate the terrorists not open its borders to them.
Well what about the Load of Crap (translation:Road Map)?
The United States hopes that the withdrawal will help revive negotiations on a "road map" for a Palestinian state alongside a secure Israel.Israel should do what it wants with its borders including annexing territory until the Arabs come to the peace table. So far Hizbullah and other armed factions have promised to move from various locations around the world (Lebanon to start) to Gaza to intensify the war against the Jews.
Rice reiterated that the United States was committed to making sure there was a stop to Israeli "settlement activity."
Why the bloody hell is it American policy that Israel should keep its borders open to this crap? What is secure about opening Israel to the free flow of terrorists. If the borders are to be secure they MUST be closed.
