Quoting Ariel Sharon

” We’ll make a pastrami sandwich of them. We’ll insert a strip of Jewish settlements in between the Palestinians, and then another strip of Jewish settlements right across the West Bank, so that in 25 years, neither the United Nations, nor the U.S.A, nobody, will be able to tear it apart.”

- Ariel Sharon to Winston S. Churchill III in 1973 .

Hey Fred,

I like Sharon's May 26, 2003 statement to the Knesset better:

"I think the idea that it is possible to continue keeping 3.5 million Palestinians under occupation – yes it is occupation, you might not like the word, but what is happening is occupation – is bad for Israel, and bad for the Palestinians, and bad for the Israeli economy.”

I don't believe that Sharon gave up his vision of changing facts on the ground. I do believe that he accepted the demographic realities of Gaza and the West Bank and determined to give the Palestinian people a shrunken non-contiguous statelet.
