2. the discussion is not about the settlements....

its clear to the vast majority of israelis that pulling out of the west bank with a weak, confused, corrupt, fragmented PA govt that the only thing were going to get is a "much worse situation". With no IDF in the west bank, to prop up the PA, they won't have much life left.....weak central govts cause havoc with our borders and lead to more being killed, the example of lebanon and now egypt show and of course gaza type govt being a real possibility post withdrawal.

The discussion and problem is that we have created a subculture that not only believes that they are above the law of israel, since they adhear to a higher law and god, but that they have the means to bring them closer to their goal. The goal being a non democratic, torah based larger israel, blah, blah, blah.

They are not going to go quietly, but the more they make good upon their threats, the sooner they will be dealt with. Presently the discussion is about which set of laws are going to be used against them...mind you this will not be easy as the fanatical of all are the 15-18 year old girls....minors in israel, where they're are a host of progressive laws protecting them.
