Giving Over Gaza Endangers Lives

Yesterday, the IDF abandoned the Gaza Strip and formally handed over authority in the area to the Palestinians.  Immediately, swarms of Palestinians filled the area, looting, destroying and burning the synagogues and whatever was left standing.  "Talks about autonomy are the first step to giving over parts of Eretz Yisroel - not only small sections but major territory such as Yehudah, Shomron, Azza, Chevron and Yerushalayim... This is actual danger to life!"  Thus the Rebbe warned Moshe Katzav, who now serves as the President of the government of expulsion and retreat.

The most painful aspect of the destruction of Gush Katif was that it was done with the assistance, support and choice of Jews, including so-called "Charedi" parties. This reminds us of the continuation of the Rebbe's words to Katzav:

"It's not proper that a Jew who believes in Hashem and His Torah should Chas V'Shalom be a partner to such things and sign on such things. Therefore, it's better that the government should fall apart and there should be no Jewish government, because these things are being discussed only because of pressure from the nations of the world (as they themselves say), and if this is the case it's better to set up a government of non-Jews in Israel and they will decide from the outset what to do about Israel, at least it won't be Jews signing on such things!"
