Gush-Katif Re-Interred Remembered

A memorial service was held, Sunday, on the Mount of Olives for the dead of Gush Katif who were exhumed and re-interred as a result of the government's removal of the Jews from Gaza in 2005.

Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) told those in attendance, "Considering these graves, one can understand, again, the words of poet Uri Tzvi Greenberg when he wrote 'Every traitor is a fool.' The crime of the destruction, of the expulsion and the uprooting of the dead from their graves has also been proven to be political and security folly."
