Sharon: Pullout will take place on schedule

Tuesday, July 05, 2005 | 
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has warned his opponents that violent protests won't stop the evacuation of soldiers and settlers from Gaza. “I want to say for the thousandth time, the ‘disengagement’ plan will be implemented according to the timetable set down by the Cabinet and the Knesset [parliament],” Sharon told the gathering. He said security forces would respond toughly to violent protests. "It is permissible to protest and demonstrate, but the state of Israel will not agree that roads be blocked, that oil and nails be thrown on the roads and that police and soldiers be beaten," Sharon said. "We will not agree to this in any way."
