Regarding Editorial "The downfall of democracy", Ha'Aretz, July 31, 2005: Kudos for this biting but oh so true commentary. Since on several occasions the leaders of Yesha openly said that the goal of their marches on Gush Katif is to stop or at least to hamper the implementation of the disengagement plan, these marches cannot be considered to be harmless demonstrations or innocent protests. They are deliberate attempts to interfere with the carrying out of decisions that have been approved more than once by our government, by a large majority of the Knesset, and by Israel's Supreme Court. Those endeavors might expose Israeli citizens and especially members of our security forces to even more dangers than they already face. No democracy that takes itself seriously can afford to allow such efforts to succeed.
