The Gaza Pullout and Sharon's Pending Nobel Prize.
A quick look at one of the more important developments in the Middle East (meaning Israel/Palestine) in the past couple of decades.
First, here's an interesting look at precisely where the settlements are:
Next, what are the odds of a Nobel Peace Prize for Ariel Sharon? Probably not all that great, but this piece captures the history and the present moment rather well:
What we are seeing this week in the withdrawal from Gaza of 8,000 Israeli citizens is as noble an act on behalf of peace as has been recorded in modern history. No peace demonstration on record has involved so much personal sacrifice. Nor has any peace demonstration involved so much trust.
We're living through a time of profound change in the greater Middle East (including but not limited to Israel/Palestine). It may be pie-in-the-sky, but there is very real reason to believe that the Middle East is changing for the better.
It is now incumbent upon the Palestinians to step up to the plate.

I think Sharon has a great shot...anytime an Israeli gives up land, they're considered a hero...if he'd just give up Jerusalem they'd make him Secretary General of the U.N. (sarcasm off)

I heard a report that Sharon - even before this is complete - is being pressured to start pullouts in the West Bank.
Nah, can't be. The next move is the Palestinians'. They now need to remove the destruction of Israel clauses from their constitution and crack down on terror. Otherwise this road will be blocked.

Will the same committee award the Nobel to Sharon who awarded Jimmy Carter his Nobel for brokering the "No New Nukes" promise from the North Koreans?

This land was given to them by God! ... The Palestinians make me sick!... Those Peace prizes have no real meaning to me anymore!...After all Arafat and Jimmy Carter are recipients!... It bothers me that the Palestinians put a Mosque right on top of Synagogues and sacred places of the Jewish people!...

Not just Synagogues but the original Temple built by Solomon!... PLO are hateful direspectful old goats!... AND I am just putting it nicely!...I don't see how they can live with themselves?
