Peace at what price?

From Israel Insider:

Meir Har-Tzion, the legendary fighter and longtime close friend of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, has broken a long silence, calling upon IDF soldiers to refuse orders to expel Jews from their homes.

Har-Tzion, who co-founded with Sharon the famous counter-terror Paratrooper Unit 101 in the 1950?s, now says of his former comrade in arms: "Sharon has gone crazy."

In the interview with Maariv, Har-Tzion tries to makes sense of disengagement plan, which he refers to as a "holocaust." He says: "Arik Sharon is crazy -- the great fighter is running away. He has become a very dangerous man."

Har-Tzion said he broke his silence of many years to join the call for IDF soldiers and officers to refuse the uprooting of Jewish towns. He says that soldiers with a conscience should be prepared to go to jail rather than follow such orders, which he calls illegal.

"The Palestinians in their territory will be unable to do anything besides terrorize us until we leave altogether. If, G-d forbid, [a Palestinian state] should occur it would be the beginning of the end," he said.

The trouble with making compromises to appease terrorists, is that eventually the honest, peace loving people will decide enough is enough and fight back.
