A "civilized" Gaza plan disengagement discussion

The Gaza Disengagement discussion is happening right now in the Knesset (live at CNN if anyone wants to watch…is it's still on). It’s turning into a ridiculous shared-every parliament member is disrupting the PM speech, it's turning into a competition-who's heard more. Maybe they are trying to get high scores among their voters because the TV is on. Little little people, I don't like most of them. Some were already expelled outside (yes, just like in high school). Sometimes I can't believe that these people are running this place (or not-once you think of how it’s being run).

The actual voting in favor or against the disengagement is tomorrow. With demonstrations both from right and the left outside the parliament, it's considered as an option to escort the parliaments members (120 in number) to the parliament in armored vehicles in fear of assassination attempts. The evacuation of the settlers itself is going to messy-a huge potential to blood shed between them and the army/police who'll evacuate them.

Crazy crazy place. I'm going away to do some backpacking in New Zealand for a few months in December, I wonder what kind of a reality I'll be coming back to.

In the long term the PLO Arabs have the sympathy of the "international community" and they will just hang in there for the long haul. Arafat knocked back the peace offerings and unleashed hell in return, there is no point negotiating with the man regardless of how much that same "international community" loves him.

So unilateral disengagement combined will an all out war on the terrorists is the only real solution that will allow Israel to remain secure and start to solve the problem (of course not the Arab Worlds problem of the liberation of Palestine which encompasses all of Israel, they wont be happy until there is no more Israel), the security barrier ensures that the troubles within the disputed territories stay in there and Israel can remain safe. Its a very tough decision but ultimately its one of the few options left.

Have a good trip to NZ - even though we all know Australia is better
