"Israelis are clearly safer since withdrawal" I have enjoyed your posts and specifically on that SS site but this post is not worthy of you at all.Qassams raining on Sderot and Ashkelon and a lack of intelligence about Shalit and Israel is safer. Arms pouring in into Gaza and Israelis are safer. In your world Israel was safer in the North after that "withdrawal" and then came Lebanon2 and Israel could not even defend its Northern population but for 6 years Israel was safer. Israel and you have never thanked the Gaza expellees for being there for your defence by putting their lives on the line. You and Israel could never thank them for their dedication to the State of Israel and the Land of Israel. But Israel did thank them by kicking them in the teeth , making them homeless and refugees and in general turning their lives and beliefs upside down. And No I am not a religious fanatic or even religious. Just someone who thinks rationally and appreciates what these people have done.
