    Sharon was very, very careful not to call it a withdrawal, Stephen. S: "Johnboy, there's a response to you also at that thread about the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, an opportunity fot the Pals that you fail to comprehend." Sharon REDEPLOYED the IDF, Stephen, and explicitely laid the legal groundwork in his Disengagement Plan to ensure that Gaza remained forever under Israeli belligerent occupation. A con trick, in other words, played by Sharon for a completely different reason than you have obviously been led to believe. And if the Pals hadn't resisted then Sharon would have gone on to his REAL game plan; use THAT disengagement as justification for repeating it in the West Bank, ensuring a de facto annexation of 10%+ of THAT land by "disengaging" to the separation wall. There was no "opportunity" for the Pals in that Gaza disengagment; the "opportunity" was meant for Sharon; only his brain exploded, and his successor had/has no brain at all.
