Pretty sure Sharon is now just bad news for Israel

New Decree: No Expansion Allowed in Judea and Samaria head IsraelNationalNews. It makes for very disturbing reading.
The Defense Ministry has completed a large-scale project to mark the existing built-up borders of all the Jewish communities and towns in Judea and Samaria - and no further construction will be allowed beyond them. Yediot Acharonot reports today that aerial photos will be sent to the United States, which will monitor every building aberration. Though the towns will be allowed to appeal the decision, every building beyond the marked borders could be subject to immediate demolition.
The US will monitor. WHAT THE F#%!? Are they monitoring the Arabs as well? I think not! Is Israel no longer a soverein nation, are they subject to whoever gets elected by Americans and not Israeli's?
This is a frightening move by Sharon. He has to go, although I don't really know who should replace him.
On April 14, Sharon triumphantly presented a letter from President Bush - which said nothing of the sort. Bush merely stated, "In light of new realities on the ground, including already existing major Israeli populations centers, it is unrealistic to expect that the outcome of final status negotiations will be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949" - far from an endorsement of the settlement-bloc conception.

Yesha Council head Bentzy Lieberman understood the dangers. On April 18, he said that Israel was supposed to be submitting to the Americans up-to-date aerial maps specifying the precise construction boundaries of each and every Jewish community in Judea and Samaria. "What this means is that not only are we giving up Gaza," Lieberman warned, "but the entire future of the remainder of the settlements is in doubt. As usual, the Prime Minister is hiding certain parts of the agreement, and is in fact deceiving us - and the ministers are ignoring this. Contrary to the impression that he has safeguarded the future of the settlement blocs, they are actually in grave danger."
Is it really necessary to repeat this again? I guess it is: Judea/Samaria are OFFICIALLY NOBODY'S PROPERTY. They are areas under dispute, and Security Council resolution 242 states very clearly how ownership should be resolved.
Which, among other things means that Israeli's have at least as much right to build and develop there as any Arab.

Please read the entire article. And then tell me who should be Prime Minister instead of Sharon
