Give Me Housing Or Give Me Death?
From the JPost:
Some settlers slated for evacuation have threatened to commit suicide if they are not provided with viable relocation options, Disengagement Authority head Yonatan Bassi said Monday.Now, I've posted before on the fact that I feel that the housing options being offered to the evacuees of Gush Katif seems woefully inadequate. And that makes me feel a tremendous amount of sympathy for those settlers , and anger towards the authorities who did not properly take care of the evacuees' housing needs. But threatening suicide is just too much. Yes, it's a crappy situation. But if someone, ostensibly one with a family and much to live for, can threaten to give up on life because he doesn't like the housing options offered to him, I have to conclude that either he has problems that have nothing to do with the disengagement, or that it's all melodrama.
