Yoram Ettinger is a consultant on US-Israel relations as well as the Chairman of Special Projects at the Ariel Center for Policy Research. Formerly the Minister for Congressional Affairs to Israel's Embassy in Washington, DC, Ettinger also served as Consul General of Israel to the Southwestern US. He is a former editor of Contemporary Mideast Backgrounder, and is the author of the Jerusalem Cloakroom series of reports.

“In the Middle East “Disengagement” (from No. Samaria and Gaza) is viewed as retreat, cut & run, appeasement, rewarding terrorism and uprooting of Jews, rather than a step towards peace or stability. In a region, which tolerates only deterrence-driven (rather than concession-driven) peace - as evident in inter Arab relations - “disengagement” would mean a setback to peace and a tailwind to terrorism. US interests and values are best served by conducting a Mideast policy based on realism and facts, rather than on wishful-thinking and myth.”
“Gaza has been an integral part of the Land of Israel. During 135AD-600AD, when Rome prohibited Jewish pilgrimage to Jerusalem, Gaza and Tiberias substituted Jerusalem as a pilgrimage site. The Jewish community (settlement) of Kfar Darom was re-established in 1967, resurrecting the Jewish community of the Talmudic era (3rd-4th century) and that which was forced out by Egypt’s invasion of 1948.”
