Farewell to U.S. ambassador

Sunday, September 18, 2005 |    

US Ambassador to Israel Dan Kurtzer has ended a four-year term overshadowed by the Palestinian terror war against Israel. Asked if the war is over, Kurtzer said: “I wouldn’t be able to say with confidence that Israel is not going to face terrorism and violence.” He said now that Israel is out of Gaza, it would have more legitimacy to strike back at Palestinian terror. “We will support it [Israel’s right to self-defense] even more vigorously [than before],” Kurtzer told the “Jerusalem Post.” “There is never an excuse for terrorism, but there is not even a hint of an excuse now if terrorism emanates from Gaza.”
