Yesha Council Condemns Use of Shfaram Incident to Insult Entire Population

The Yesha Council tries to preempt the inevitable and extensive political backlash from the Shfaram incident. It is unlikely that they will succeed in lessening what is sure to be a tsunami of condemnation against all opposition to Sharon's plan. Already the whole opposition is being blamed for creating an atmosphere of lawlessness that led directly to the incident.

"( The Yesha Council announced this evening (Thursday) that it is shocked and severely criticizes the shooting incident in Shfaram that took the lives of innocent people.

The Yesha Council also criticizes the cynical use of the incident by certain political entities to try to make a connection between a serious incident to the democratic, legitimate and nonviolent protest against the expulsion from Gush Katif.

Naming him "a settler" even though he was not a resident of any settlement is an attempt to slander a whole population who is leading a democratic protest in an exemplary way. It would be better to act with more responsibility instead of criticizing only in order to gain dubious political benefits."
