Jonah ... An Israeli perspective?

Wondering what your take is on this:

Sharon Party Overwhelmingly Spurns His Gaza Plan

Not being all too familiar with your government ins and outs, what is the significance of this party vote? Also it has been reported on TV that about 57% of all Israeli's support this plan. Would really like your perspective on this if you are so inclined. Thanks!

this'll be a sort of "ramblin rose" reply....

the 60/40 vote of the Likud party is almost an exact reversal of opinion polls of the population as a whole..

back in the late 60's -early 70's it was said that "the number of people ready to give back the Golan Heights (which btw is about 15 miles as the crow flies from where i live) goes up in direct proportion to the distance you live from there"..

i live about 150 miles as the crow flies from gaza, and i don't understand how anybody could live there (latest estimates say that about 5000 jews live amongst 1.3 million arabs, crazy? who knows, they believe they have the right to live there)

my brothers-in-law live about 10 miles from the border crossing into gaza and dread the day that israel will withdraw from the area (and they don't understand why someone would want to live on the golan heights :-))

arik sharon said "i will abide by the decision" he didn't say that he accepts it though, news/newspapers say that he will try to work around the decision and at the same time try to keep his job...

i think that the most amazing thing i heard on the radio was that a fairly large portion of the arabs in gaza don't want israel to withdraw from the area, (possibly the idea of being under complete control of the hamas/islamic jihad/plo/plp/fatah/ doesnt mix to well with having a job and a social security number?)

and now, having read this, i think maybe i "should" have said "i haven't the faintest idea what is happening here"....

It would be nice to have the Palestinian population's perspective too. Wink
