All Of Us Will Pay

All Of Us Will Pay

Gush ad in Ha'aretz p.2, Feb 25

At the same meeting in which it decided to implement the disengagement from the Gaza Strip, the government took an even more important decision: to complete the wall in the West Bank.

As of now, preparations are moving rapidly ahead for the building of three new towns between the Green Line and the wall: "Gevaot" in the Etzion Bloc, "Zufim North" near Kalkilia and a contiguous built-up area connecting Jerusalem with Ma'aleh Adumim. More big housing projects are planned east of Har Homa and east of A-Ram.

This means violating the promise given to President Bush, violating international law, sabotaging Abu Mazen's efforts to achieve a settlement and inviting a third intifada.

The dismantling of the Gush Katif settlements is costing billions. The dismantling of the West Bank settlements will cost hundreds of billions. All of us will pay.
