Israel withdrew it's citizens as well as the IDF from gaza. They elected a gov't with a platform of pulling out of most of Judea and Samaria. They placed as defence minister a Labour Party leader, a former labor leader, one of the founders of Peace Now, a man who wasn't a General or even a "ranking" soldier. What do the arabs do? Barrage the defence ministers home town with qassams !! The arabs were full of glory for "repelling" the occupiers, they destroyed the green-houses, fought amongst themselves over who was going to succeed with more terrorist attacks. Putting all this into context and you have the nerve to comment on Israel responding to this??? Instead of PROVING to the world and to Israel that they will use this pullout as an opportunity to take a positive step forward, they reverted to form. Wake up man, your rantings on this and other talkbacks make you out to be nothing other than an arabist apologist blathering with blinkers on.
