During these days of continuous and deadly missile attacks from the Gaza strip on southern Israel, it is most eye-opening to take a look back to the days when the expulsion from Gush Katif was up for the decisive Knesset vote,  and see the way some of Israel's elected representatives related to the nationalist warnings that what is occurring now would be the situation if Israel ever retreated from Gaza, as it did in August 2005.

Two years ago, during the previous rain of missiles, rockets and terror in the south that was met with the Cast Lead anti-terror operation, Channel 2's Amit Segal presented a montage of responses and comments  by MKs whose parties were in then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's coalition regarding the security-related predictions against the disengagement plan.

The video, courtesy of Channel 2, was featured on the Arutz Sheva TV newscast two years ago.
