U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan endorsed Ariel Sharon’s plan to uproot Jewish settlements from the Gaza Strip. Speaking Wednesday at the United Nations in New York, Annan said, “I was quite intrigued by Prime Minister Sharon’s decision to pull out of Gaza. I think it’s a positive development, and I hope the Quartet” — a diplomatic group of the United States, United Nations, the European Union and Russia that is working for Israeli-Palestinian peace — “can work with him in implementing the decision.”
