...I know why Sharon left Gaza as well. Frankly, it makes no difference. He left. Israel left. The Jews left. I think people like me may underplay the Gazan isolation after Israel left and people like you overplay it. Either way, while it may have been dificult (and I am not conceding that point)there is no disputing the fact that the people of Gaza elected a terror organization that has decided to wage war instead of building up the infrastructure of a state. Instead of developing an economy they develop and launch rockets. It really has been both disapointing and informative to see what Palestinians focus on once the 'Jews have left'. I'm sorry to say it, believe me. But, Quasaam rockets not only scream to Israel "we want to kill you" they also scream to fellow Palestinians "you have to starve". PEACE BENEFITS YOUR PEOPLE. QUIT PUTTING UNREALISTIC CONDITIONS ON EVERYTHING AND COMPROMISE. The Clinton 2000 plan is the best it's going to be.
