However the application on resignation mister Scharansky has directed a premiere only yesterday.
“ the Plan of unilateral delimitation is a tragical error which will aggravate palestino - the Israeli conflict, will strengthen terror and will keep away possibility of achievement of the original world “ - he has declared. “ My disagreement with the plan is based on a deep belief that during peace process any concession from Israel should be caused carrying out of democratic reforms in the Palestinian society. The plan of unilateral delimitation at all does not correspond to this principle. On the contrary, it only stimulates terrorists and weakens chances of construction of a free society for Palestinians “ - mister Scharansky considers.

And here the former colleague Natana Scharansky on party “ Israel ba - Alija “ the Novel of Bronfman considers differently. “ Scharansky`s Resignation specifies in its political and ideological bankruptcy. The fighter for human rights in Soviet Union here has turned to the leader of struggle for occupation preservation. Scharansky selected in the Knesseth repatriates, has actually refused to represent their interests, and is engaged in the decision of personal problems. Resignation opens its real face and its true priorities “ - mister Bronfman is assured.
it means By true priorities literary - Natana Scharansky`s commercial activity. Scharansky`s affairs - the writer really go recently uphill since US president George Bush has declared that it scoops the vision of a world policy in the book of the former Soviet dissident “ In democracy protection “. “ It is the great book! “ - the American leader has declared, and edition sales have gone uphill.
