"Israel retreated from the occupied areas of West Bank and Gaza almost two years..." You must be watching too much FOX news, Dolly. Israel never retreated from the West Bank; in fact, they have added so many road blocks in the past two years, paralyzing the West Bank economy in the process. In Gaza, yes, the settlers were removed, but Israel still controls Gaza's borders, skies, shores, food supply, water supply, imports, exports, etc. So technically, Israel retained control of Gaza as well. And when the Palestinians democratically elected a government, a total blockade was declared on them. How were they supposed to build their state under road blocks and blockades. Please get your facts straight next time.
