The mess that Israel left in Gaza, similar to the mess it left in Lebanon and to the mess left by the US in Iraq, created a power vacuum that rewarded extremists to the detrement of the moderate pragmatists and long term peace. The pretence that Israel gave the Palestinians an opportunity to practice self-government was betrayed by the fact that Israel arrested the majority of the elected Gazan politicians shortly after withdrawing. BTW the occupation didn't start in 1967, the Israeli state confiscated land from its first day and even before.
