Abstract:

In December 2003, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon proposed that Israel withdraw its 7,500 settlers and 21 settlements from the Gaza Strip. President Bush has endorsed the plan, which is not part of the Road Map peace plan. Most Israelis support Sharons proposal, but some Israelis oppose withdrawing from Gaza for religious or nationalist reasons. The report will be updated as needed.
