    ...Zeev (two posts) and Gabe is at least to some extent close to your thinking. As I promised, I have not stopped thinking about the question that you raised a week or two ago, and again today. Danite, most Israelis accepted the retreat from Gaza, although with much pain, and most Israelis were ready to do something similar in Judea and Samaria, and towards this end elected a government that would deliver just that - hitkansut - of most villages to the Israeli side of the security fence. Yet, three things happened that caused the whole plan to be frozen: The rise of Hamas to power, the continuation of attacks from Gaza, and the Lebanon conflict due to Hizballah's attack. As a result Israelis lost complete trust in our neighbors, and have opted not to cause any addional dislocation in society. In essence, I say that we, including myself, were ready for dramatic moves. But we are not the only players in the field; our neighbors are too, and they blew it up again, to my sorrow.
