    I think it's a well written article that presents an alternative to the popular assumption of what Sharon's plan actually was, to consolidate Israel's security starting with the withrawal from Gaza. I think most people of the free world can read such an article with an open mind and the sort of education that allows new ideas & ideologies to be considered and decided upon. If we make no decision, that's not a problem, it just takes more information to decide either way or remain undecided. I'd like to make a point to Khalid et al of his way of thinking and education (he seems to be educated). People in the free world think very differently to you. We see right through your biased comments like glass. It does us no harm to read what vitriol you write, it's too biased to be believable and simply reinforces our view that you should be ignored. You can only preach to the converted, which is thankfully a number limited by the ever increasing number of mature democracies in the world.
