Gaza: Overdue exodus

The Israeli settlers in Gaza are leaving today, under orders from the Israeli government, and those who don’t leave voluntarily will be forcibly removed.

Temporary military occupation for security reasons is one thing; permanent civilian settlement (read “land grab”) is quite another. However late the mandate comes, it is the right thing to do. Gaza is not and never was Israel’s to settle. Nor are the West Bank and Golan Heights.
