Civil Disobedience and 'Disengagement'

I don't think most people have a sense of how dramatic and divisive Sharon's disengagement plan is. A significant portion of Israelis are very torn up about this. The American MSM is doing a terrible job reporting this. While we may not agree with their motives I think it is important that we understand what is at stake.

Many "right-wing" activists are planning acts of civil disobedience. Others are considering going farther. There is also a desire among certain individuals to carry out an attack on the Temple Mount, (Kach activist) Federman said. "No one wants the mosques there," he said. "But people are torn between the desire to bring them down and the fear [the Muslims] will build a more beautiful mosque after the destruction."
