Olmert to Katif: At Least You’re Not Dead, by Hillel Fendel

Excerpts;

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with former Gush Katif residents and said that in light of the war, they have nothing to complain about. He also promised to “evacuate” more Jewish towns.

Olmert visited Nitzan, home to the largest concentration of people who used to live in Gush Katif, Gaza. In his Monday visit to the site of pre-fab homes called caravillas – some of its residents call it a “refugee camp” – Olmert met with representatives of several former Gush Katif communities. “I just came from speaking with the parents of the pilot who was killed in the Israel Air Force helicopter crash a few days ago. Their son we sent not [on a mission of ] settlement, and neither did he come back with compensation; he came back in a coffin!”

Though a videotape of the proceedings shows that no one immediately responded, furious reactions came later. One said, “As if we didn’t have enough people killed when we lived in Gush Katif?”
