Three months have passed since the evacuation by the Sharon government of all settlements in the Gaza strip. What are the consequences of this withdrawal for the Gush Emunim, “the settler movement”? What are the consequences of the withdrawal for the messianic doctrine of the movement? Religioscope has asked Gideon Aran, a senior lecturer at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and one of the best experts on the movement that he has covered for the last 20 years.
Jean-Marc Flükiger, contributing editor to the French speaking website Terrorisme.net, talked with Dr. Aran. Religioscope would like to thank Mrs. Margareta Flükiger for her improvements and copy-editing of the English version of the text. For a French translation of the interview, see www.terrorisme.net.
