"Against the background of harsh calls for a reoccupation of the Gaza Strip, we must learn well the lessons of the war in Iraq," MK Dov Henin (Hadash) said Tuesday during an anti-war protest outside the US Embassy in Tel Aviv. The demonstration, commemorating five years since the US invasion, was held as part of worldwide anti-war protests organized by left-wing groups. Henin said that "on the fifth anniversary of the war, the lesson is clear - in the 21st century it is very easy to conquer but impossible to rule an occupied region." "The occupation has embroiled the US in a terrible war, which is causing death and destruction in Iraq and is entangling the Americans in a boggy swamp," added the Hadash MK.
