If You Want to REALLY Know What is Happening in Gush Katif

Go here.

I don't know which of these stories tears at me more. Is it Noga Cohen. whose children were left amputees by a terrorist, who tries to calm another mom of 6 after she threatens to kill herself?

A mother who refuses to leave her son's memories behind ? Who is begging to have his room moved as it is?

Has has Sharon's heart hardened so much? Does he honestly think this is the best thing he could do for Israel?
The prayer ceremony at the cemetary, which caused one photographer to break down in tears?

What are you talking about? When I want to know what's going on, I read Ha'aretz!

Just kidding.

There about as trustable as Sharon. Wonder who he'll stab in the back next?

It's all so heartbreaking. Interesting though that it's barely being covered here in the states. I heard that CNN send a helluva lot of reporters there but yet very few guess is it's because there hasn't been the Jew v. Jew violence they were hoping for. Disgusting vultures.

The mother who wants her son's room moved? Heartrendingly sad. What a horror.

I never have time for the news but a little while ago Rich asked me if I had lived near Gaza when I was in Israel. I said no and asked him why. Then he told me that Israeli settlers were being forced to move out.
I checked the internet for stories then I came here because I knew you would have a link. I must be an idiot but I have no idea why this is happening. Why would Sharon do this? Why the hell are they giving it back to the Palestinians? This can't be a good strategy!!!!! What a scary world this is!

I don't know if this helps, it would take more than one article to figure out what is going on, but give it a try.

See also this column by Charles Krauthammer, he's a pretty clear thinker on these complex situations.

I wonder if anyone is reading these items I'm posting. Whatever, here is another.

Read the comments too. What I really wonder is that if anyone reads them, they make some sense and maybe lead to a modification of viewpoint.

Just one more article on Gaza then I'll go away!
This is David Frum's take on it.

Go there and click on The Secret of Gaza.
