Disengagement: Yossi likes it!

The Connecticut Post reports on a local mission to Israel, with this tidbit from YudelLine's favorite Israeli analyst and '80s indie movie star:
Yossi Klein Halevi, an Israeli author, told them he felt more optimistic about Israel's future than any time since the 1993 Oslo accords.

Halevi said the advantages of Israel's planned unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip outweigh the primary disadvantage: that Palestinians might see it as a weakness. It will be interesting to see, he added, if the sovereign Palestinian state left behind dismantles its refugee camps or not.
