    1. As a US citizen, I find it apalling that we will pay 2 BILLION dollars to subsidise the moving of religious thugs from territory that the US aggrees is illegal for them to be in. 2. It is about time that evacuation happened! What took so long? If this is the right thing to do now, then it was the right thing to do 30 years ago and the wrong thing to start with. The settlements are a surreal environment where more soldiers are present than "civilians". 3. The IDF is more than able to dismantle these settlements. Just use the tactics used on Palestinian family homes: shout on the horn that they have 1/2 hour to pack, and then raise the houses with the huge D9 Bulldozers. The IDF is well trained for that. 4. Moving 8000 illegals in the midst of 1.4 million indigenous people is a NO BRAINER. There should be no tears shed for them. I could easily go on but I won't. The whole world sees this as a small gesture, while you guys see it a national trauma. This will be good for Israel, unless you share the views of our Christian wackos here about Armagedon! Peace!
