What I've been blogging about for months now, is the depths that Sharon, the media, and the Israeli Left went to, to ensure the success of the "Disengagement." No one really cared what civil rights of protestors were trampled on. It didn't bother anyone that youngsters were illegally jailed without due process. Judges and prosecutors blatantly projected their political world-view against those who dared to have a different view. The mountains of evidence are more than damning. Yet, in Israel life goes on as usual. Chief Justice Aharon Barak continues on his merry way, the police commanders who illegally threatened protestors are still in their positions, and life goes on.
When you find some time, read this terrible indictment of how Sharon, Barak, & co., pushed the disengagement forward. In a normal western democracy, there would be resignations, public outcry, maybe even rioting in the streets. Not here. Israelis honestly think they live in a democracy. The truth is, every few years Israel gets to democratically choose their next dictator.
