When Sharon\s party voted against his plans for disengagement he simply ignored it. Even if there were a referendum, if it went against an agreement, it will be ignored, and some contrived mechanism will be found to carry out the agreement. Whether it be by the High Court nullifying the referendum or the left wing of the Knesset doing the dirty work, it is clear that a referendum will not determine the course of events. In any event, the voice of the people has been disregarded and will continue to be. People who voted in Netanyahu not that long ago, did not vote for someone who will freeze construction and negotiate Israel back to the 1967 borders. Netanyahu had specifically campaigned on this platform. Now he has done the opposite. Have the voices of the public been set aside. Absolutely. Imagine if a candidate from Meretz had won the election and decided to initiate a massive building program in Judea and Samaria, refused to talk to Abbas, etc. There would be howling from all the left how undemocratic this is.
