Netanyahu pans Gaza pullout at Ariel Sharon memorial

As the Knesset marks two years since the death of former prime minister Ariel Sharon, Netanyahu criticizes Sharon’s most-lasting contribution, the Israeli disengagement from Gaza.

“In Gaza, we received a Hamas terror base adjacent to our lands,” he says in the Knesset, according to the Walla news site. “Unfortunately we transferred government responsibilities in Gaza to Palestinians who don’t just not pursue peace with us, but who have boosted the arming of terror groups. We must at least draw the necessary conclusions from this episode.”
