Elad, your opinion is sound. Of course, an alternative should be letting the settlers stay at their own risk if they do not wish to be repatriated into Israel within the green line. At any rate, why should the Israeli army risk soldier's lives protecting these settlers who break the law and wish to remain in the Gaza Strip? Maybe they would be better off under Palestinian rule. They cannot have it both ways.
