Reason for giving up Gaza?

Perhaps it is just as well that this piece of news is not of sufficient importance to warrant attention by most major news media.

It is very important for Israel's future policy concerning the "West-Bank".
U.S. Congress overwhelmingly approves Bush's position on Israel

Quote: 'The U.S. Senate yesterday endorsed President George W. Bush's positions on Israel, which state that it is "unrealistic" to expect Israel to pull back to 1967 borders and that Palestinian refugees must be settled in a future Palestinian state.'

If the US Senate feel this way, with such a majority as well, Israel has more room to manoever. Giving up Gaza is a mistake. But maybe Gaza was chump change for Judea/Samaria. Will it be worth it?

Time will tell.
