When Ariel Sharon decided to pullout of Gaza he made the decision and and literally pushed the settlers out of Gaza. The man had "balls". He was not afraid to push the people for something he felt would be better for the country. Both Arafat and Abbas were afraid of the militants. Till a strong leader is available to make tough decisions the only word I can think of is NEXT !!!!
