Here's an article in Ha'aretz that seems to support the position one of its reporters, Zvi Bar'el (whose article was featured below). Apparently the United States will allow Israel to pull out of Gaza but not to relocate those settlers to areas within the West Bank. Nor will they allow Israel to expand settlements in the West Bank in return for the withdrawal from Gaza. Interesting. While this will most definitely save lives in Gaza (both of civilians and soldiers), it's long-term benefit appears to be diminishing somewhat.

[I'm shocked that Uzi Landau is, "vehemently opposed" to the plan. Really, are they sure they got their facts right? Oh, that's right, I met him on my recent trip, he MUST oppose this plan. ;) ]
