Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said this (Sunday) afternoon that firing at Palestinian residential areas should be carried out if terrorists use area to stage attacks and if a warning is given prior to a response.

Sharon told ministers during the weekly Cabinet session that “the terrorists are aware of our sensitivity regarding firing at residential centers and therefore use them as shield to launch attacks. There needs to be a response to that”.

The terrorists may be aware of this alleged sensitivity, but it's the first I'd ever heard of it.

That would appear to be the only newsy thing about Sharon's announcement, wouldn't it, Rufus ... until you scroll down to this:

Sharon’s remarks come three weeks after Attorney General Meni Mazuz warned that a bombardment of Gaza could be considered a war crime. Mazuz’s warning came after Sharon said, “If terrorists continue to launch Kassam rockets at us even after the pullout, we will bomb them back”.

They are getting ready to shell -- ie, bomb -- Gaza as they pull out.

Christ. If this is disengagement, it is coming at a high cost for the occupied!
