SDHD: "Think of a territory which has an Israeli presence: Administrative, military, and civilian where the flow of goods and people is controlled." You don't get it, do you, SDHD? The difference between pre- and post-disengagement is merely in the FORM that the exercise of this control takes. Administrative: Israel STILL retains control of the population registry, on entry/egress, and on the handing out (or withholding) of tax receipts, salaries, etc. Military: Israel STILL insists that no weaponry can enter, and it STILL insists that it is free to deploy its weapons as it sees fit, for whatever reason it fancies. SDHD: "Now, think of a territory where there is NO administrative, military, or civilian presence," That territory is not called "Gaza". The "presence" is on the periphery, and it is exercised in EXACTLY the same way prison guards can exercise their "presence" from watchtowers. The source of AUTHORITY has not changed, only how it is EXERCISED.
