    When the Israeli people knew that it could only count on itself, they fought and won. Today, the idea that the United Nations won't be a bashing ground againt Israel, that the world may like us (oh dear) and that the media will give us a pat on the back seem so appealing, let's give Gaza against nothing, hey? Why not? Tactically this may be a very smart move, strategically it is a catastrophy. G-d bless the both the army and the settler, I'm sure both of them are weeping today as they have been thrown into the arena to fight by their own government... But fight for who? for what? Boy it's a mess! It is the desire of the Israeli people to be liked (loved maybe) by a western world who would have annihilated the palestinians for far less than they done to Israel more than Sharon action - it has always been out of his hand. G-d bless Israel we are all in the diaspora, behind you.
