This is IBA in Jerusalem, where in addition to announcing concert cancellations due to missiles, they interviewed one Anita Tucker. She left the United States in 1975 to settle an area of the Gaza strip called Gush Katif. Back then she and her fellow settlers were actually welcomed by the local Muslims for the jobs they created.
But by 2005 Anita's settlement was considered illegal, and the Israeli government used SWAT teams to forcibly move everyone 40 kilometers away. A major blunder, she says.
"We sent out messages warning everybody that if the Gush Katif towns are taken away there terror is going to reach everywhere. The only solution today is to set up Jewish towns again next door to Arab towns.
