    No Danite, I believe complete unilateral withdrawal is crazy (although I support it from Gaza). This conflict will only be completely ended by a jointly negotiated treaty. Otherwise, the Palestinians will keep waging the war under the guise of meeting one or another demand (which keep changing and increasing). Just as we withdrew from Lebanon, but the Lebanese claim we didn't and Hezbollah is still active. Why should we give up every negotiating chip we have while they give us NOTHING? Would you go into a business meeting and tell the other company, "no need trying to sell me, I'll give you everything you want right off the bat?" You will answer, "but the international community will stand by us." Not likely. The biased U.N. hates us, the many Arab countries hate us, and Europe is certainly not pro-Israel (although all aformentioned gladly do business with us and take our shekels). Complete withdrawal will encourage more terror, because they will then move their sights to Tel Aviv. The international community won't let us "hit back hard," either.
