All players are listed but one: The Jews

Commentators tend to ignore the sheer anger accumulated by Jews who have seen their country run AGAINST their will in the past five legislations. "In times when representative democracy fails the people it is not only physiological but is also just that they try to correct the run by direct democracy and to seek out alternative decision-making tools.

One of these anti-revolutionary tools is clearly Mishalot Yisrael, a grassroot Torah group, that not only sponsored polls showing the Sharon/Peres plan in minority (38%) but currently runs a referendum, presenting the Jewish Alternative Disengagement Plan. Tens of thousands of Jews have already cast their votes and the results are surprising: Insread of the Jews, nearly all of the participants want the Arab Palestinists to be transfered well beyond Jewish buffer zones and habitat.
