I am amazed how those who espouse the Labor Party and leftist view (“Call to Labor Party,” Your Say, Jan. 30) seem to think that a unilateral withdrawal from Yehuda and Shomron will lead to a magical peace with the Palestinians. It was the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza (aka Sharon’s Folly) that had led to thousands of rockets being fired into Israel and two wars. These views, championed by Livni, Herzog and theirpatron saint, Obama, will do nothing more than bring Hamas, radical Islam and rockets into central Israel.
The Labor Party would love to return to its roots and thereby turn Israel back into the socialist bureaucracy that it was in the 1950s and 1960s. Thank goodness we’ve gotten past that.
