Sharon: Evacuate Gaza settlements

Quite a statement by Ariel Sharon to Haaretz today:

“It is my intention to carry out an evacuation – sorry, a relocation – of settlements that cause us problems and of places that we will not hold onto anyway in a final settlement, like the Gaza settlements,” the prime minister added.

“We are talking of a population of 7,500 people. It’s not a simple matter. We are talking of thousands of square kilometers of hothouses, factories and packing plants. People there who are third-generation.”

Reuters picked it up right away.

Now, will media outlets continue to insinuate that Sharon’s government is land-hungry and stubbornly refuses a peaceful settlement? Or will they properly turn attention to the PA’s failure to take parallel steps, such as the uprooting of terror organizations?
