A mild comment on what is happening.

Arial Sharon, the Israeli Prime Minister does have Yasser Arafat in his sights--he wants him to go into forced exile. Why bother? The Palestinian Authority is in a state of collapse due to bad leadership, chaotic administration, corruption, infighting and disaffection.

Of greater concern is Israel initiating unilateral disengagement that would lead to a decision to begin a process of separation between the two peoples. This go-it-alone strategy involving the evacuation of Israeli settlements from the Gaza Strip and West Bank:Ariel Sharon's plan is to evacuate 17 of Israelís 21 settlements in the Gaza Strip and transfer their populations to communities yet to be established in the Halutza sand dunes of the northern Negev. It was Sharon who instigated and promoted many of the communities he now proposes to uproot.

Who would pay for all this excauvation?

What would happen to the Palestinian economy? How is that going to keep going? Does not the Israeli economy depend on Palestinian labour?
