Sad

This article makes the housing plan for those displaced by the disengagement seem woefully inadequate.
Meanwhile, settlers are discovering that the temporary housing in Nitzan will entail pretty rough living conditions. "This trailer is the size of my dining room," said G., a prospective resident...
How very depressing for these people. Especially since they are leaving behind such beautiful homes to be destroyed.
I think a lot of the sympathy that should be felt for these settlers is being lost in the political battle between the pro- and anti-disengagement camps. One doesn't have to be anti-disengagement to understand how horrible it must be for anyone to be uprooted from the place they have called home for so long and put down indefinitely in a trailer park.

"The article MALES the housing plan"-is there a new definition of "male" that I'm not aware of? Or was that a typo?

Just checking, cuz you seem to have a reputation of a spelling perfectionist here in the blogosphere so before I thought you made a mistake, I thought that, perhaps, I was just ignorant. I still might be, but thankfully this doesn't prove anything.

No worries. You're not ignorant. But apparently there's another spelling cop in town.

"Moreover, the distribution of trailers will apparently not take into account the settlements from which residents originate, thus depriving residents of their central demand to keep their communities together."

Think of the effect this will have on young kids. I hope (but doubt) the government will provide some sort of counseling to ease the transition.

I doubt it. The whole point seems to be to make things as difficult as possible for the "exsettlers" and purhaps drive them out of the country.

My hear goes out to all those who are being kicked out. Buy I have no sympathy and no respect for any soldier refusing to do his duty. If soldiers can refuse to expell the settlers, than soldiers can refuse to serve in the "occupation".

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
