As calls for all-out war on Gaza increase, it is important to set things straight.
With elections less than a month away, many in Israel are concerned and even frightened over the likelihood that Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will be elected prime minister in his own right.
Can the Sharon government protect Israel's citizens? Clearly, "disengagement" will open the door widely to "Palestine." In consequence, once deprived of its remaining strategic depth, Israel will become an irresistibly tempting object for aggression by certain enemy states.
As we see from the reactions of many of the Israeli government ministers, Arik Sharon negotiated with himself and decided that his plan for disengagement was a reasonable plan.
