- -01-14-06 Little Support for Sharon in Gaza (BBC News)
"Some in the Palestinian Authority argue that Mr Sharon had shown by withdrawing from Gaza that he was ready to uproot settlements and cede occupied territory, and that he appeared to be positioning himself to pull out of more of the West Bank."
"But many Palestinians would say that all that kind of thinking is naive."
"They would argue that Mr Sharon would never have given up enough of the West Bank to constitute a viable Palestinian state - that he was determined to keep large tracts of occupied land, including all of East Jerusalem."
"When one of Mr Sharon's leading advisers publicly described the disengagement plan as a means of putting the dreams of a Palestinian state in 'formaldehyde', most Palestinians took him at his word." 01-06
