An end to the Intifada?

This certainly looks like progress, however marginal it may be:

Residents of a small Jewish settlement said Sunday they reached a deal to move to a village inside Israel, becoming the first community to agree to be evacuated under the government's Gaza withdrawal plan.

The agreement, confirmed by a top official, gave an important boost to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (news - web sites), who faces staunch opposition from settler leaders to his plan to pull out of the Gaza Strip (news - web sites) and a part of the West Bank next year.

Who would have know that it would be a Hawk like Ariel Sharon(The Bulldozzer) who would push for the removal of settelments?--settelments which, as an historical fact, he once helped fortify. Give history a chance to surprise you.
