This is what happens when public officials ignore and deny the Islamic doctrines of jihad and Islamic supremacism. These politicians were all wrong, and what we were warning here — that the withdrawal from Gaza would only embolden the jihadists — was right. But it appears that in Israel, as in America, the political and media elites don’t ever seem to face serious accountability for their errors of judgment and willful ignorance.

This appeared on Channel 10 cable television last night. It includes (with translation) of highlights of the 2004 debate on ‘disengaging’ from Gaza and seeing how people voted. You will note how foolish the speakers look today and how many ‘right wingers’ (including Netanyahu) voted in favor. I tried to convince many of you otherwise, and was slammed at Little Green Footballs [Big surprise there. — RS] for being a ‘Kahanist’ because I was opposed to the ‘disengagement.’ Well, who was right?
