SDHD: "It did TWO things. It removed its presence and it removed its administrative authority, moron." What you weasel-word as "removed its presence" was actually described in the Disengagement Plan as "deploy to the border". They mean two very different things, SDHD. What you weasel-word as "removed its administrative authority" is actually "refused to exercise its authority". They mean two very different things, SDHD. An example: A prison warden who orders his guards to cease patrolling the grounds and to stay in the watchtowers is "refusing to exercise his authority", but he most definitely has not "removed his authority" over that prison. Sharon = prison warden. IDF = guards. Gaza = prison. Disengagement = the order to cease patrolling the grounds and deploy to the watchtowers. Sharon no more "removed his authority" over Gaza than did my hypothetical prison warden "remove his authority" over his prison.
