Knesset Passes the Disengagement Plan

The Knesset (Israel’s parliament, in case you didn’t know) has passed the plan to pull out from Gaza. The vote has already had some interesting political ramifications and I image there will be more. Israel is going to, at long, long last, pull the people and troops out of Gaza. It is about time (and it will be by the time it takes effect).

There are many sides to this issue and many questions in the air, like “Will a non-negotiation de-facto pullout mean the Palestinians will govern themselves?” What will this mean for the larger peace issues. We will have to wait and see.

Ha’aretz
Jerusalem Post
Ma’ariv
and, for an interesting and different perspective, Al-Jazeera (yes, I know, but it is interesting to see how others view things.)
