Who Will Really Be Paying A Price?

Zev Chefets, in a guest column in the NYTimes, would have us assume that Ariel Sharon has adopted President George Bush as his new mentor, that he seeks to implement Bush's vision of pacifying Palestine by creating for the Arabs yet another state and, in doing so, Chafets believes Sharon is even "ready to die" to make this vision real ("Follow the Leader", Feb. 15) .

What Sharon actually may be doing is allowing for improved Kassam missiles to reach further into Israel, encourage terrorists eventually to restart their violence to gain further Israeli concessions and to bring death and destruction, in cooperation with Hezbulla and other extremist groups.

Will Sharon be willing then to pay the price is his policy fails?
