    The Expulsion from Gush Katif: Looking Back from Within

    Exactly ten years ago on this date (in 2005), the expulsion from Gush Katif, the area of Azza, was completed. It began the day after the Ninth of Av, and it continued for a full week.

And then I crowed like a bird in support of an alternative
