Paul, I see in my earlier posting I wrote down that with a referendum the majority would vote against disengagement. That was wrong, I meant in favor and against staying in Gaza. I have been working in Israel now for almost a decade as a relocation consultant, but originally I am a lawyer. In this past decade I have been trying to understand Israeli legal system. I did not have much time for it, but the moments I spent on it, I believe I see a pattern. Israel lacks a constitution, which is not so strange in a quasi theocracy. There is always friction between secular and religious law and no judge can go around this, unfortunately. I think that this development has never started because Israel has other things on its mind. There is simply no time and occasion to develop a good law system and as long as there is no seperation between church and state, there will always be difficulties.
