Where do the figures for the settler population in Gaza come from? I've seen everything from 7,500 to, now from Yediot Ahronoth, 9000 settlers...does this latter figure include the 'infiltrators' and 'supporters'? Does anyone actually know how many people are there?
2. No Suicide and No Ethnic Cleansing Jews

Hello, At the end of the day the voices of reason will win this battle between the settlers and the government of Israel, and as I expected very few exteremist settlers AKA terrorists will end up defying and playing dangerous games with the government but at the end the disengagement will go ahead with their support or over their dead bodies that no reasonable Israel will ever miss! Shalom

Islamofascists fight never-ending religious war against Jews 24/7. Part of global jihad. Shooting attacks. Stabbings.Bombs planted. Bombs thrown. Molotov cocktails and firebombs thrown. Islamist homicide bombers. Stonings. Rocket and mortar attacks. Every single one of the Palestinian Authority's security services are involved in terrorist attacks against Israel. A May 2003 Pew Global Attitudes opinion poll: 80% of Palestinians agreed with the statement: "The rights and needs of the Palestinian people cannot be taken care of as long as the State of Israel exists." 80% of “Palestinians” want Israel destroyed! Ynetnews, 7/16/05 ‘Israel’s Ghost town’: ShaarHanegev Council Head, Shuster: "promises have been made to provide local communities with special protection against rocket attacks." Israel's government: "The cabinet is scheduled to meet Sunday where the issue of supplying a defense mechanism for communities surrounding Gaza Strip is set to be discussed.” This is an ABNORMAL and frightening response to war! The NORMAL and proper response of any government to war, is to PERMANENTLY stop the attacks by fighting back and winning the war!!! Highly pressured by the Quartet-U.S. EU, UN, and Russia, the ABNORMAL response of Israeli leaders to non-stop jihad waged against Israel's Jews is to greatly EMPOWER the jihad giving jihadists their own terror state - Hamastan - with its own seaport and airport - the largest terror base in the Middle East - ENDANGERING THE ENTIRE WORLD - Al-Qaida units already operate in Gaza. worldnet July 11 2005 ‘Al-Qaida nukes already in U.S.’ The plan is for an “American Hiroshima” involving multiple detonation of nuclear weapons already smuggled into the U.S. G-8 leaders promised nine billion dollars to the Palestinian Authority over the next three years. TAX DOLLARS THAT SHOULD GO FOR THE IMMEDIATE BUILDING OF EMERGENCY BOMB SHELTERS!

Extremists are born in every situation, Jews and Arabs etc. Linda iuf you have the guts, make aliyah, we need your support here and not on 5th Avenue

You're heard of the portion? Well here's the solution. Settlers should not be forced to move: they should be allowed to become Jewish citizens of Palestine. And if they don't like that, let them come over here and move to Florida. The Jewish proportion of the US population has fallen from 3.5% in 1960 to 1.8% today. Adding all of Israel's 5.2 million to the US's 5.3 million would bring it back up to 3.6% and there would be PEACE in the world because the crime of 1917 would finally be atoned for.
12. To #11: The solution
sarah ,   Jerusalem   (07.26.05)
Your solution is one of fear and a loss of hope. Try turning around your argument: have the American Jews come here, where they can help create a just and democratic state.
