JERUSALEM - Israel has reportedly expressed its belief to Washington that Iran and several of its Arab allies are preparing for a full-scale war against the Jewish state, possibly following the expected US withdrawal from Iraq in 2006.
Israeli papers see Wednesday's protests against the withdrawal from Gaza as the opening shots of the disengagement proper, which begins in six weeks' time .
Commentators in Israel's three main Hebrew dailies all strongly criticise the nationwide unrest.
Palestinian papers examine their own government's role in the run-up to Israel's planned withdrawal, and urge the authorities and militant factions to join a national unity government.

IIRC the latest polls (despite some mainstream outlets' efforts to bury the details) show a clear majority of Americans now don't support the war.
That can only grow.
The most widespread consensus among Americans is that a precipitous pullout of American troops would be harmful, a point repeatedly stressed by the president. Sixty-four percent of Americans say if troops were withdrawn before the situation stabilized in Iraq, it would do "more harm than good" to the United States. Just 28% say it would do "more good than harm."
