Dear Philip, just to refresh your memory: the Israeli legislative election 2006 was held on March 28th 2006. This means two month AFTER the Palestinian legislative elections on January 25th 2006. You are right that this election was still considerably liberal after an elected Hamas majority in the PNC. BUT: Kadima never talked about a complete withdrawl from the West Bank as of pre '67 boarders (Green Line). The East Belt around Jerusalem as well as the Ariel Settlement Block and land outside "the barrier" as well as the Jordan Valley had never been subject to any thoughts of withdrawl. Please consider this.
