A searing indictment of dhimmitude and appeasement: “Legacy of September 11th, 2005: Israel Spawns Terror Base for the Enemy” by David Bedein:
As Israel pulled its troops out of the areas where 21 Jewish communities had thrived in the Katif district of Gaza and four more Jewish communities in Northern Samaria, the Israeli public was under the mistaken impression that the IDF handed over a piece of scorched earth to the Palestinian population.
Hundreds of bulldozed homes from 26 Jewish communities of Katif and Northern Samaria were shown on the Israeli media being turned into rubble by Israeli army bulldozers.
Not one Israeli media outlet showed the 400 public buildings that the IDF did not bulldoze – schools, youth clubs, town council buildings, shelters, and electric grids – which Israel handed over to the Palestinian Authority, founded by the PLO – an entity defined by the preamble of Israel’s own disengagement plan as anything but a “peace partner”.
It is hard to find anyone in Israel who knows that a premise of the Disengagement plan was to leave the buildings and economic infrastructure ONLY for a “Palestinian population not involved in terror”, and that the Israeli government completely ignored that fundamental requirement.
Meanwhile, the PLO, which runs Gaza through its Palestinian Authority. is comprised of rival Arab terror organizations, all of whom remain in a state of total war with Israel, including the Fateh, headed by the titular leader of the Palestinian Authority – Machmud Abbas.
Yet in a generation weaned on the hopes of the Oslo process, it is hard to find anyone in Israel who knows that the Arab League, created for the sole purpose of destroying Israel, pioneered the PLO back in 1964 to fulfill that same goal, which has never changed.
It is hard to anyone in Israel who knows that the creation of a Palestinian entity in a section of “Palestine” was in keeping with the PLO’s “strategy of phases”, which was conceived by Abbas himself as an amendment to the PLO Covenant of war with Israel.
It is hard to find anyone in Israel who knows that the PLO never nullified its covenant of war to destroy Israel, albeit in stages.
