The evacuation of 10,000 people from Gaza. Instead of the Arabs embracing such action, they proceeded to destroy everything, even things that would greatly benefit them. In a small way, Sharon exposed the Arab fig leaf, and called their bluff. They failed miserably. Instead of embracing peace, they became rocket launchers, viewing Israel's act as weakness. By failing this crucial test, they can never have any of the West Bank. Israeli evacuation of citizens again would lead to a repeat performance by the crazy Arab terrorists. Instead of appeasing them this time, they are required to be crushed. Israel has seen the previews to this movie in Gaza. They will never be repeated, in spite what the brainless Leftists think.
