Re-engagement



A map published by the Palestinian Negotiation Affairs Department showing how the Gaza "disengagement" translates into a West Bank "engagement". While the focus of the WSS-infected media this past week has been on the "historic" withdrawal from Gaza, we forget that settlement expansion this year alone in the West Bank has created room for 30, 000 more illegal settlers. Bravo, Sharon, for the greatest theatrical performance pulled off by a head of state since, well, I'm tempted to say since Bush's Iraq, But really since ever. Posted by Picasa

Not to forget the importance of Western media complicity. All the major news outlets have focused on Sharon's grief in having to force the poor settlers out of Gaza. There has been zero analysis of the fact that Gaza is practically a giant prison with the most important sovereign rights being exclusively in the hands of Israel.
