No Palestine in the Holy Land

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines?

As I reflected before, the whole strategy of the Disengagement was to separate the two issues of the Gaza Strip and the Heartland.
Now that is done, it is time to look to the facts on the ground. The Gaza Strip is essentially a No Man's Land, where corrupt fanatic warlords vie for the control of the poorest piece of real-estate on the globe. Not that it has to be that way, see the 250M$/year Jewish agribusiness that was laid waste by Sharon's forced eviction of Jews.
The Heartland is firmly in the hands of Israel. Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah are daily and nightly raided and Jihadists either arrested or shot if they offer resistance. The Jewish villages destroyed in the Disengagement are actually alive with Jewish Army activity. The Jewish population of Judea and Samaria is swelling by leaps and bounds, the population thereof being the most dedicated, most Holy Land oriented of all. Hamastan of Gaza is pilloried as the catastrophe awaiting Jewish Israel should the Settlers and the Army withdraw from the heartland. True Jewish withdrawal from the heartland is not in the offing.
The next step is inevitable, regardless of who shall assume the mantle of leadership. Gaza being Juden-rein, it shall be the destination of the Jihadists arrested in the Jewish heartland. As Gaza continues to pester Israel with rockets, Israel will cut the umbilical cord entirely. Which means no electricity, no potable water, no communications, no funds, except those donated by Eurabia. The Gazans will either pipe down, or emigrate. The only way out is via Egypt.
Like all strategies this one will totter along, two steps forwards and one step back. In the end, that is the only viable solution.
Except for the Final Solution, that is. Iran is working on that one.
