Is Gaza Withdrawal Strategic?

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

Submitted by Jeremy Kareken (United States), Aug 10, 2005 at 11:57

While I agree there's a great danger here... to what degree is the Gaza withdrawal strategic?

Both diplomatic and military, by providing useful cover for the wall, which is undeniably more effective than anyone had dreamed...

I am greatly in favor of disengagement as long as it is SOLELY strategic. If it has no strategic value and exists only as a barter of land for peace, we all know where that leads.
