The article presents an analysis on the factors behind the decision of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to withdraw Israeli settlers from the Gaza Strip and to annex several parts of the West Bank. One of the cited reasons is the threatened Jewish demographics. Nevertheless, it has been speculated that Sharon's unilateral solution could gain support from the Islamist party Hamas.
