    Perhaps you're right, Jane, that a national referendum is necessary the next time the government intends to evacuate settlements. You'll notice that, in #35, I didn't disagree with you - I wrote that a majority of Israelis today would vote for evacuating Hebron, and they would have done likewise in 1994 after the Baruch Goldstein massacre. My main point is that, whatever final borders are to be drawn betwwen Israel and a nascent Palestinian state (and I'm not for total withdrawal to the 1967 borders), Hebron should be evacuated now. The Jewish settlers in Hebron are a disgrace to the state of Israel. What better proof could Israel offer of its intentions to reach a territorial COMPROMISE (meaning a withdrawal but not to the pre-1967 lines) than to remove this canker/cancer? And, as I stated above, if the settlers refuse to be evacuated, then just the IDF should be evacuated. Do I lack madmen?
