Sharansky Resigns

I heard this on my drive to work this morning…

Natan Sharansky resigned today from the Israeli cabinet.

In a long letter of resignation, Sharansky cited the need for democratization of Palestinian government in Gaza as a pre-requisite for an Israeli pullout.


In his letter, Sharansky wrote, “Will we, by leaving Gaza encourage freedom of expression and a judicial system that protects human rights? Will the incitement in the Palestinian education system cease? Will the terror groups be dismantled? The answer to all of the above is of course, no.”

In an interview with Army Radio Monday morning, Sharansky said, “I have always believed that the disengagement plan is a heavy price to pay and encourages terrorism.”

Publius Pundit and LGF have more on Sharansky’s “Conflict of Interest”.
