    Howdy Stanley; You said, "Although Israeli actions seem disposed to producing anarchy on the West Bank and Gaza and an inability to find a negotiating partner, this is a very shortsided approach that will cost Israel dearly." Would you care to elaborate on exactly how anarchy in the Gaza Strip "will cost Israel dearly". If the chaos cannot spill over into Israel (thanks to the security barrier and the IDF), I fail to see how it would cost Israel anything. It might force the Egyptian Army to intervene to restore order, but that would be to Israel's advantage and she wouldn't have to foot the bill to reoccupy the place. Oh yeah, it isn't Israel who is causing the anarchy in the Gaza Strip. The Gazans themselves seem to be doing a splendid job of that all by themselves without any help from anybody else.
