Calling For Israel's Destruction
Iranian President Ahmadinejad's statement calling for Israel to be wiped off the map has been condemned by countries all over the Western world. I realize these statements are merely lip service, but does anyone believe Iran would be facing such a hostile reaction if Israel had not disengaged? World opinion (at least in the parts that matter) is clearly shifting in Israel's direction. So much so that Saeb Erekat felt the need to defend Israel's right to exist. A benefit of disengagement? Absolutely.
