Daniel Pipes on the Gush Katif surrender: "A Democracy killing itself"

Daniel Pipes was one of only a handful of scholars who recognized the danger of militant Islam and of the so-called peace accords negotiated in Oslo from their very beginning. His track record on these matters is far above that of most others - in fact, only Bernard Lewis and Norman Podhoretz come close.

Which means that this piece is a must-read. He shall be proven right again, I fear.

He finishes on an especially chilling note:

Israel's mistakes are not unique for a democracy - French appeasement of Germany in the 1930s or American incrementalism in Vietnam come to mind - but none other jeopardized the very existence of a people.

Bibi, we need you...
