The Bush Sharon correspondence proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the disengagement did not end the occupation of Gaza. Israel proudly retains its OCCUPIER status. The siege started the last day of the Disengagement and has continued unabated. No reduction or even halt in the rocket fire has diminished the siege in the past. The only thing this halt might do, if it is successful, is to strengthen Obama's hand, if he ever decides to press Israel's government. Making an inhumane situation less inhumane is not a concession.
