Thousands Are Marching

Protesters from all of Israel are planning to march from the small southern town of Netivot to Gush-Katif today. The police doesn't want to allow buses to Netivot to even leave their points of departure; policemen confiscate the bus drivers' licenses. This is really going too far. I sincerely hope that within a few days our orange revolution will start looking like the one in Ukraine. Someone wrote in a talkback on YNet - "Instead of marching to Gush-Katif, march to Shikmim Farm, Sharon's home; take everything - money, electric appliances, sheep. It is your money, so don't be ashamed." And i totally agree.

Please, God, don't let anyone die on the way.

One difference between Ukraine and Israel, though, is that the Ukrainians had a bad guy and a good guy - Yanukovich and Yuschenko. The bad guy here seems to be Sharon, but who's the good guy? Not B. Netanyahu - he stinks. Not Effie Eitam - secular Israelis don't like him (although i don't understand why). Not Benny Eilon - he's rather nice, but also somewhat sinister - there's something wrong about his dealings with American televangelists. Uzi Landau or Arye Eldad, perhaps? Are they leader material?

The most ridiculous thing is that Sharon was supposed to be the good guy against the bad guy Abu-Mazen and he fails so miserably...
