Yediot Aharonot  asserts: “The recent developments on the Gaza border lead to a grim political conclusion: The experiment called the disengagement failed,” and declares: “Had Israel remained in Gaza, the economic gap between the Palestinians in the strip and in the West Bank would have been narrowed, the PA would have maintained its rule, tens of thousands of Gazans would be working in Israel and the level of violence would have dropped.” Looking to the future, the author argues that “Israel can serve as a critical element in jumpstarting an international move to free the strip of Hamas and restore the PA’s rule,” and suggests: “We must, therefore, turn to the Arab League and the European Union countries immediately and call for a comprehensive initiative that would include ending the siege, disarming Hamas, opening the crossings between Gaza and Egypt and bringing the PA back to the strip as the only legitimate government.”
