    Sharon never explained in public his plan for the disengagement from Gaza. But his aides offered the explanation that this would "strengthen Israel's hold over the West Bank". And this would have meant the Bantustan plan, except that Sharon envisioned a few more Bantustans; about 7 or 9, I don't quite remember. Incidentally, when Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema was told that the term "Bantustan" was inappropriate (today it reminds people of Apartheid), he answered that that was the term Sharon himself used in describing the plan to him. Note that since Sharon never explained the reason of the Gaza disengagement plan to the public, it could be that his aides' explanation was only meant to mollify the settlers and that Sharon himself came to believe in a real Palestinian state. We are reduced to guessing until some reliable source agrees to tell the truth.
