The right continually argues that Israel ended the occupation of Gaza and look what happened - missiles kept coming from Gaza. Ergo, we cannot end the occupation of the West Bank because the same thing could happen. Talk about compartmentalised thinking! Gaza is a small and currently secessionist part of Palestine. Israel did not end its occupation of Palestine when it left one corner of it. When it has left ALL of it and pulled back to the Green Line, only then can it insist on an end to resistance and hostilities. The unilateral Gaza pullout, without prior agreement with the PA or recognition of Gaza's future status, was just one more blot on Israel's record of never missing an opportunity to bungle an opportunity.
