    the settlers have so many powerful allies in the government and the likud party, they don't need an actual settler to be a minister. it's much more convenient to have your allies do your bidding. the "delay" in the "evacuation" was so predictable, i would have gone into shock had i not read about it this morning. the settler allies got a delay, and next month they'll get another one,and before you know it, the "evacuation" will be put off for an unspecified date, to be named later(meaning never). we have seen this movie before. and the real gainers are the hamas and islamic jihad who keep telling everybody that israel never meant to evacuate anything. and if by some miracle this fairly trivial evacuation takes place, no more settlement evacuations will happen in this century, i'll bet the farm on that. one wonders when abu mazen is going to realize he is being played for a dummy by sharon and his cronnies.
