It is pretty obvious to everyone in Israel that the disengagement plan was a complete failure, and that all of the dire consequences that we on the right side of the political spectrum predicted have indeed come about.
This is shown by the fact that even the left leaning journalists are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to find a way to spin it - and are coming up short.
I just listened to an interview on IDF radio. Ilana Dayan was speaking to Ari Shavit, who wrote an article in Haaretz this morning. His position is that the disengagement plan was a failure because we did it stupidly. The problem was that we thought that it would solve all of our problems quickly, and that was unrealistic. We should have analyzed the plan better. This is particularly infuriating for me to hear because this is what those of us who opposed the plan said for at least a year before it occurred - and we were completely ignored.
Then came the real bombshell. Ilana Dayan said that "maybe we journalists didn't do our job correctly by asking the tough questions". Maybe? Maybe? The so-called objective press blindly assisted the radical left throughout the whole process, because of their desire to see settlers thrown out of their homes. Doing their job of asking pointed questions was forgotten because of their own political bias. Now, when the failure is apparent to all, it suddenly occurs to them that they made a mistake.
Will this mean that they will improve in the future? I don't know. I honestly think that the veteran journalists cannot change, and will always be biased. My only hope is that the younger ones, not as set in their ways and seeing this grave mistake, will try harder to do their jobs professionally in the future.
