Isreali 'disengagement' 

Ariel Sharon has managed to enrage both the Jewish settler population in the West Bank, and the Palestinian leadership. Is he on to something? Sharon is basically saying that if the Palestinians do not actually execute on the Bush Administration's "roadmap," he will declare a two-state solution himself via disengagement, which will involve a rapid acceleration of the construction of the barrier, and a relocation of up to 300,000 Jewish settlers behind it. Is the threat credible? The Palestinian leadership had better assume that it is.
