Insane Blogger vs. Israeli Government Spokesperson: Who Analyzes Faster?

Dov Weisglass, on the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, in early October 2004:

A senior aide to the Israeli prime minister, Ariel Sharon, said in an interview published Wednesday that Sharon's plan to withdraw troops and Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip had "frozen" the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and guaranteed that Israel would never have to remove 80 percent of its settlers from the occupied West Bank, with the "blessing" of the U.S. government.

The aide, Dov Weisglass -- until recently Sharon's chief of staff, his personal attorney and still one of his closest advisers -- said the primary goals of the proposal to withdraw the 8,100 Jewish settlers from Gaza were to strengthen Israel's hold on its more numerous settlements in the West Bank and to freeze the political process as a way to indefinitely block the creation of a Palestinian state.

Know-nothing blogger, early February 2004, reconstructing a dialogue between Bush and NYT buffoon Thomas Friedman:

We both know that Sharon is the same old Sharon - he plans on keeping the West Bank permanently under Israeli control, and this new Gaza stunt, even if he actually goes through with it, is simply a tactical move to further tighten the grip on the real prize.

I'm sure the anti-fact, deniers-of-history, what-they-said-is-not-what-they-said Israeli apologists are all over Weisglass's statements by now. Well, they can go fuck themselves. And while they're at it, they can come to our site to see how Israeli mouthpieces are going to be rationalizing their ghettoizing, ethnic-cleansing policies before they "misspeak" and actually say something that approaches reality. They might learn something.
