Haveil Havalim #33

UPDATE: Welcome to all of you who have come from MSNBC's Clicked! Thanks for visiting. Haveil Havalim is the Jewish or Israel related blogging carnival (based on the venerable Carnival of the Vanities idea.) For more information on this week's hostess, Shiloh Musings, see here. For previous editions of Haveil Havalim see the end of this post. Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
Disengagement
Mirty's Place has an IM disengagement discussion with her husband.

Is there a pot of gold after disengagement? Alas, Shiloh Musings tells us not. Nor has the government adequately prepared for the influx of students who were evacuated from their homes.

Life of Rubin has a picture gallery showing two sides of disengagement. Not for the fainthearted. Did you notice the picture of the woman showing off her key? When Palestinians do that reporter credulously quote them as saying that those are the keys to the houses that were taken from them.

Point of Pinchas tells of his participation in the Gush Katif protests and illustrates his post with photos.

Israel Perspectives wonders why there wasn't more activism on behalf of those who were against disengagement. He also questions praise from the Israeli media.

Dubious Profundity asks if the Palestinians can be counted on to take any reciprocal action to demonstrate their commitment to peace. One look at the picture that illustrates the item, answers his question.

Cox and Forkum illustrate that point a bit differently.

Jack's Shack hopes that disengagement will help Israel but is discouraged by the early returns.

Ocean Guy runs a journalist's account of the evacuation of Neve Dekalim.

Yourish warns us of "The Great Israeli Settler Danger." I guess she doesn't read Ha'aretz!

Elder of Ziyon asks if the density of Gaza's population is a cause of terror when we can expect terror from other countries and areas that are even more densely populated than Gaza.

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred are disturbed that some Palestinians will now be losing their jobs.

Knockin' on the Golden Door considers the difference between the way Israel and the Palestinians approach terror committed in the name of their goals.

Over at The Jewish View he wonders about one of the possible
ramifications of the reburial of those Jews who were interred in Gaza. (with credit to Willow Tree.)

Devarim condemns condemnable behavior demonstrated during the disengagement.

Finally, Jack's Shack asks if you can be right and still be wrong.

A First Impression of Bolton
Solomonia praises the first major action taken by recess appointee Ambassador to the UN John Bolton: condemning the UN for financing Palestinian propoganda. Unfortunately, he doesn't think there will be much of a consequence to this abuse. And he's probably right. When it turned out that the UN was protecting Hezbollah, no one paid the price.

Debates
DovBear rejects the Israeli policy of killing terrorist leaders.

Prima Impressionis outlines the reasons (here and here) the policy is sound.

In response to a recent Daniel Pipes column, Mere Rhetoric argues that American pressure or fear of American pressure is what necessitated PM Sharon's decision to disengage. Better to take control of the process and save what he can of Yesha, than to be forced into a worse position diplomatically.

I cited a number of reasons why I didn't see the American pressure.

Mere Rhetoric has the very kind last word, for now...

Elsewhere in the Jewish World
Velveteen Rabbi announces a new graphic novel treatment of the Book of Esther.

Jack's Shack remembers Leo Frank.

Aaron's cc reminds us of the lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Neighborhood Bully." (I guess, appropriately, in came from the "Infidels" album.) Complete with links for illustration. I once requested the song on an alternative station. The DJ thought the song was about Fidel Castro.

Psycho Toddler laments the proliferation of Minyanim (prayer groups) at weddings.

Elie's Expositions rather prefers having an individual one at his own house.

The lighter side

It would be easy to sympathize with Cindy Sheehan if she didn't hold such offensive views. Confederate Yankee quotes her, um, in the original German.

Fortunately Pillage Idiot noticed that a member of the cabinet has agreed to talk to her.

I remember long ago there was a famous Dry Bones cartoon depicting Menachem Begin explaining that America must withdraw from all occupied territories. I don't know if A Knight's Blog was aware of the cartoon but he posts about an American disengagement from Mexican territories that were occupied by America.

Clarity and Resolve has some prime real estate that he'd like to sell you. With good reason.

You'll notice below that I've added tags to Haveil Havalim, I'm hoping to raise the profile of Haveil Havalim so that more people will be aware of it. If you host and do trackback pings, cut and paste these tags. I'm also attempting to get Haveil Havalim noticed by TTLB's Ubercarnival.

Haveil Havalim (The Jewish/Israeli blog carnival) can also be found at The Truth Laid Bear's ‹berCarnival.
