Leave it to Akiva Eldar to come up with the bizarre concept that the Gaza withdrawal is not a success only because there was no simultaneous West Bank withdrawal. Eldar has included the need for a full withdrawal in virtually all of his columns for years now. He is a monomanic with only one objective. Even the prospect (based on the Gaza experience) of Kassem rockets landing in Netanya and Tel Aviv launched from an "unoccupied" West Bank doesn't deter his vision. Incredible.
