Extremist threat to Sharon
Last updated: 2004-07-07
Speaking on Israeli television Tuesday, Tsachi Hagnebi said he is concerned such extremists might act once the government begins removing Jewish settlements.
Mr. Sharon plans to remove some 7,500 settlers from their homes in the Gaza Strip and another 500 from the West Bank. Most Israelis support the withdrawal, but many settlers are adamantly opposed to the plan.
In 1995, an ultra-nationalist Jew opposed to peace talks with the Palestinians assassinated then-Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
