It's VERY CLEAR, that Israel leaving land, (Gaza) without CONCESSIONS from the Palestinians, (or in the very least a worthless piece of paper, signaling an agreement) was a big mistake on the part of the Israeli government.
The Prime Minister visited the town today that has been recieving the Kassam Missles, Sderot.

Caroline Glick, THE JERUSALEM POST Jul. 6, 2006
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s secret visit to Sderot Tuesday morning was met with snorts of disgusted laughter. When the prime minister of Israel treats a visit to a city in Israel as a military secret on the order of an American presidential visit to Baghdad, the message he sends is clear: Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza last summer was a national security disaster - and he knows it.
Olmert said he hid his plan to visit Sderot because he didn’t want to give the Palestinian Authority a special reason to launch rockets against the city. That statement, like the government’s decision to retake the destroyed communities of Dugit, Elei Sinai and Nisanit in a bid to halt the Palestinian rocket offensive, is a clear admission that the IDF is incapable of defending southern Israel from outside the Gaza Strip. read more here....
This bothers me greatly.
LAND FOR PEACE is a joke.
And, if Israel withdraws from ANY land in the West Bank, (in the future) these missles that are raining down on Sderot today, will soon be crashing into Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem tommorow.
The UN will condemn Israel for going into "Hamastan" to go after terrorists?
In this quote from Debka, substitute Tel Aviv for Sderot....
Second volley of three missiles against Sderot Friday sets fire and sends three people into shock
July 7, 2006, 10:49 PM (GMT+02:00)
Up to Friday mid-afternoon, 17 Palestinian missiles struck Israeli locations – despite Israeli anti-missile campaign in Gaza Strip. Netivot was hit first for the first time. In Sderot, three people were earlier hospitalized with shrapnel wounds from 6 explosions.
A comment on JPost -- on how to get Gilad Shalit back...Texas Style...love this.
Don McIntyre offers this suggestion in a comment at JPost:
Ya'll have to use "cornbread" common sense in this little scrapes. Put a huge bomb in the Dome of the Rock...seize the land it sets on & seize Jacob's Well. Then tell the Palestinians to keep the kid, it was a fair trade. That soldier will be back home in less than an hour. Trust me...Texas logic is harsh but it works.
Maybe we need some Texas Logic?
Less concessions to terror and murder.
