Gaza withdrawal almost set

The Knesset has begun debating Sharon's proposed Gaza withdrawal, with voting scheduled for later today. At this point, it looks like the initiative will pass. Some analysts, like Uri Avnery, have warned that this promises to ignite a civil war within Israel.

Once the resolution passes, I guess the next step is to start taking bets on whether Sharon will be assassinated. Who wants to set the odds?

Oh, and btw, 17 Palestinians were killed and more than 78 wounded in Gaza on Sunday and Monday. But that's not news. Hardly ever is.
