"How hard is this for people to understand? Israel GAVE the Palestinians Gaza for nothing in return!" You see there's your problem, the rest of the world doesn't agree with you. For a start, Gaza never belonged to Israel so it couldn't GIVE it. Secondly, the Israeli government didn't wake up one morning and say, 'We love the people of Gaza so much, that we will withdraw and let them live free!' Instaed it woke up one morning and said, 'Those Pals won't give up, however hard we hit them, they just keep on resisting us in Gaza and the cost of defending a few hundred settlers there is way too high, so we're going to abandon Gaza, tell the Americans it's a generous gesture and hope the Americans fall for that and they let us keep a much bigger chunk of the West Bank instead.' Same with Lebanon, Sinai and the PA territory. Israel has a history of only abandoning land when it's exhausted by fighting or has been badly scared. It never does it out of humanitarian benevolence.
