    Physically 100% of Gazan land is "free" of Israelis but according to the letter of the law it is still under occupation of Israel because Israel controls the borders. Why ? Because till Palestinians prove they want to live and build a state in peace, they need to be controlled. When the hated Ariel Sharon dragged his people out of Gaza, the Gazans should have grabbed the opportunity to show Israel and the world that they can build their society. They sure did. By immediately firing qassams from newly liberated Gaza into Israel. Logios...what country in their right mind is going to allow the free movement of arms into the country they just left...a country that decided to continue to fight rather than build what they just got back. Had Gaza gone the path of peaceful co-existence with Israel ...the West Bank would have been the next land to have settlers removed from. But Gaza has turned into an armed militia state. Egypt(control of Gaza pre-1967)nor Israel want an open border.
