Gaza realities 

Ali Abunimah, one of the most compelling voices on Israel-Palestine since Edward Said, says the Gaza pullout is, in part, propaganda fakery. Israelis have flown in Jews from all over the world to stage the weepy spectacle to garner sympathetic images for worldwide media.

Meanwhile, according to Abunimah, the brutal Palestinian realities remain unchanged. Jewish settlements on the West Bank, housing thousands more Jews than Gaza, continue to be built up, Palestinians continue to suffer in poverty, living in what is still a virtual prison, under Israeli guns.
