Yup yup. Disengagement is the way of the future there.

Likud thought it would throw some weight around by voting this down, but the populace is overwhelmingly behind it. This is the voice of the majority of Israelis you hear at this protest.

Personally, I'm all for it too. Disengage, build a big wall, and solve a whole lot of problems right there. At this point, I think they want to essentially wash their hands of controlling the area. This will turn over control to Hamas and the PLO (sic--Hamas IS the PLO now!). They will do nothing with the land under their control, and things will get even worse in Gaza than they are now.

Of course, the PLO will claim that they 'chased the evil zionists out of their country' and rejoice.
