Olmert: Victory in Lebanon will allow us to disengage in the West bank

'Victory to impel pullout'

...The prime minister also predicted that the outcome of the Lebanon fighting will create "new momentum" for Israel's plan to separate from the Palestinians by withdrawing from much of the West Bank.

This is completely unbelievable. How blind can he be? It is obvious to anyone with half a brain that the pullout from Lebanon and from Gaza is what caused the current war. The Palestinians say it openly on Israeli radio. The pullout from Gaza has been an absolute failure. Is there quiet? Is there peace? All there is is Kassam rockets on Sderot and Ashkelon. What can Olmert possibly be thinking? Does he want Kassams on Tel Aviv, the airport, etc.? The only good thing is that if you look at the article in Hebrew, there are over 400 responses and the overwhelming majority of them feel the same way as I do. Hopefully this means that the average person in the street is waking up and realizes that the disengagement would be an absolute disaster for Israel.
