    It's sad that militants have used such deception to move explosives. It hurts the general population. If militants about their fellow Palestinians they'd stop provoking Israel and spend time building roads, schools, hospitals, etc. (then could thumb noses/"shoot moon" at Israel and say "See, we Palestinians don't need Israel to support our economy". Mr. Sharon changed course after realizing there no reason to pacify Gaza settlers at the cost of the rest of Israel. Arafat had chance but did nothing to help the majority of Palestinians (trying to rally his constituents with statements like "We'll leave a million dead martyrs on the road to Jerusalem" does not count as positive effort). I hope the Palestinians make Gaza good now that Israel's out - it would be a good example to Bush that Muslim countries don't need outside influence to establish a government that benefits the majority of their own people.
