Rolling the dice

My Cousin Sharen and I have been debating the idea of Israel abandoning the Gaza Strip and the West Bank for quite a while; she's against it and I'm on the fence, so to speak.

Stephen Green summarizes my take on it fairly well:

What's Israel get for getting out of Gaza? Let's take a look, but first let's scratch off what Israel won't get:

1. Increased respect from the international community.
2. Increased domestic security.
3. Increased domestic tranquility.

In fact, Israel will suffer a decrease in all three of those items.

I'll expand on his thoughts later.
