Passover solidarity with the Gaza settlers

Friday, April 22, 2005 |

They believe that if God brought the Jews out of Egypt, He can stop the Gaza pullout. However, a poll in Israel's biggest newspaper, “Yediot Ahronot,” shows that 64 percent of the settlers won't resist evacuation. But Gaza resident Rachel Sapperstein does not believe it. “We are going to resist up until the end,” she said. (We’ll have an in-depth report on the struggle facing the Jews of Gaza in the upcoming edition of “israel today” magazine.)
