Awakening to the futility of Land for Peace deals? Not quite
Or does he? “Peres on pullout: We should have done things differently,” by Ronen Medzini for Ynet News, February 18 (thanks to Writer Mom):
President Shimon Peres made a surprising statement Wednesday, saying that while he supported the 2005 Gaza pullout, he now sees himself “as one of the people who were wrong. We should have done things differently.”
He spoke at a Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations meeting in Jerusalem.
A subsequent statement made by the President’s Office later said that Peres did not mean he was against the disengagement in hindsight, but rather against the way the move was carried out and the lack of political and security coordination with the Palestinian side at the time….
Yeah, that would have solved everything.
