On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said nothing would stop him from plans to pull out of the Gaza Strip and other West Bank regions. The plan comes up for parliamentary vote on October 25.
JERUSALEM - Facing unrelenting criticism from Jewish settlers, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Monday that nothing would deter him from pushing forward with his plan to pull out of the Gaza Strip and parts of the West Bank.

Also Monday, scattered fighting in the Gaza Strip killed at least five Palestinian militants.

Sharon, a longtime patron of the settlements, spoke a day after holding a tense meeting with settler leaders that ended with battle lines drawn between the two sides.

I'm not at all convinced that even if he moves ahead with his plans that this will bring a great deal of stabilization to the area. It seems to me that the underlying conflicts are so deep set that conflicts will still continue with a great deal of resentment on both sides.
