      The problem is that the Israelis never really gave up control of the land.  Oh, they made a show of withdrawing from Gaza, but they did it mostly because they knew it would be cheaper to run the open air prison it is by allowing the warders to manage the place.  The costs of trying to actively control Gaza had gotten too high, so the Israelis made a calculated withdrawal.  The Palestinians though weren't fooled by the sham generosity, because they never got control of the borders or the airspace, which Israel still kept closed.  So, no land was ever really given back and no peace was in anybody's future.

      •  I agree that they gave up Gaza for the reasons (0+ / 0-)

        you describe. But still, they did it. Did them no good. Same with South Lebanon (which they were occupying completely illegally and had no hope of holding long-term but still the same story).
