Olmert has stated his intention to withdraw. He is withdrawing to solidify what is left.In place of religious command and national mission (which didnt quite work out the way the narrative would have it)we now have instead the imperative of cheap housing (which was always a factor in colonies erected closer to the Green Line) and instead of the 120 illegal colonies we now have "blocs" in various parts of Palestine, plus control over the Jordan Valley.These "blocs" are strategically placed to prevent the formation of a continguous Palestinian state. Israel says if palestine were Finland noncontiguity wouldnt mattere anyway.And this change in motivation is supposed to make it more acceptable to the Palestinians whose lands and lives will be adversely affected by these "blocs" of cheap housing for Israeli colonists?
