The article reports that the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza has left the Palestinians with more land but fewer resources and has already led to more violence. Among the potential successors to Ariel Sharon, Amir Peretz is the only candidate who will address the plight of Palestinians. Peretz will argue that withdrawal has not made Israel more secure and that unilateralism is merely a stopgap measure that can only postpone an effective and lasting peace agreement.
