    We constantly see these arguments that since Israel left Gaza and didn't get peace, they should stay in the West Bank. But according to this article, Gaza is not freed. In fact, Gazan exports are under the control Israel.

We'll see, but I imagine that the mindless hasbara will continue despite its lack of logic. It always does...
