Israelis rally in favour of Gaza pullout
Up to 150,000 Israelis have rallied demanding that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon push ahead with his stalled Gaza pullout plan.

Crowds on Saturday packed Tel Aviv's main square for what leftist organisers said was shaping up as one of the biggest demonstrations in years by Israel's "peace camp", largely dormant since the outbreak of a Palestinian uprising in 2000.

The killing of 13 occupation soldiers by Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip this week has deepened already strong public support in Israel for a unilateral Gaza withdrawal rejected by Sharon's right-wing Likud party, opinion polls show.

The rally was intended to evoke memories of the public clamour that led to Israel's 2000 withdrawal from southern Lebanon after a 22-year occupation that cost the lives of hundreds of troops in fighting against Hizb Allah fighters.

1. It's a start.
I love this part:
"The killing of 13 occupation soldiers by Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip..."

It is good to see the IDF referred to as occupation soldiers, it is even better to see brave Palestinian men and women referred to as Palestinian resistance fighters.

Thank God for Aljazeera.
