    I am fascinated by your "facts," such as the $500,000 compensation received by the victims. Perhaps they received them on paper, but Katrina got in the way of the US compensation payoff. More than 60% of the evacuees *have* gone back to work, if you had even bothered to do five minutes of research. Why should a community such as Neve Dekalim not insist on staying together as a community? It may be beyond your experience, but if you spend a Shabbat in any yishuv in Eretz Yisrael, you will find that they are loathe to break the close friendships apart for expediency. Oh, and the government agreed to it, too. People who pay high mortgages for small apartments do so for the same reason that people pay for villas on the Aza coast; because that's where they want to live. You want nature? Take a hike. The Disengagement has absolutely no connection with the end of the British Raj in thought, word or deed, and it's an insult to the Expelees and history to attempt a comparison.
