Positive Effects of Evacuation of Gaza Settlement
Thought this was an interesting article on the effects one of the Gaza settlements, along with Israeli closure policies, had on the Palestinians in the area, and what the evacuation of what that settlement will mean for them. Unfortunately, the evacuations are balanced by the fact that Israel is building a wall through another Palestinian area, which will have massive effects on Palestinians -- you can read about that, and their protests, here, though the article largely focuses on media bias. (See my review of Paradise Now, below, for a counterpoint).
