Warning or Foreshadowing?
Lifted whole cloth from Yahoo News:
Israel would launch a massive ground operation if Palestinian militants fire on Israeli soldiers and settlers during next month's Gaza pullout, the deputy defense minister said Sunday.

In such a scenario, the evacuation of settlers would be halted for 10 days to two weeks while Israeli forces occupy Palestinian towns near the Jewish settlements, said Deputy Defense Minister Zeev Boim.

Boim told Israel Radio the ground operation would be massive, on the scale of the "Defensive Shield" offensive of 2002, in which Israel reoccupied West Bank towns in response to a series of suicide bombings.

Palestinians fighting Israeli occupation firing on Israeli soldiers during a pullout from Palestinian territory? Seems counter-intuitive.

I've linked this before but it seems pertinent- only Mr Sharon/Likud would gain from such a scenerio.
Impersonation units," have been key to the Israeli anti-terror fight Erez says.

Of the 2,200 arrests Israelis made in the West Bank last year, about 1,500 were conducted by special operation forces (SOF), including 366 by a special Arab impersonation unit, he explained. These specially selected and trained personnel have demonstrated the ability to completely blend into the opposing population for intelligence and operational purposes.

An attack on Israeli soldiers and settlers would bolster the Israeli Right while crippling the Peace movement, paint an international media picture of Palestinians as "ungrateful", unreasonable war mongers -terrorists and figure well in Sharon and company's quest to keep the occupied West Bank... No benefit to the Palestinian cause of independent statehood occurs to me...

I'll check 'comments' for your insights.
