Israeli Settlers Resist Gaza Pullout, Palestinians Call for Withdrawal from
West
Bank
Thousands of settlers are refusing to leave their homes in Gaza settlements
today as Israeli soldiers and police order them to move out. The pullout
is seen by some as a strategy by the Israeli state to consolidate its hold over
the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Others see it as a necessary step in the
roadmap
to peace in Israel-Palestine. We speak with a resident of Gush Katif who
is resisting the pullout, the director of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights,
a journalist who spent time with soldiers and settlers and the founder of
Electronic
Intifada.
