After evacuating more than 8,000 settlers from Gaza and demolishing their homes, the Israeli army is set to remove all its forces next week. Egypt will deploy 750 troops on the Gaza border to prevent weapons smuggling, and the territory will be handed over to the Palestinian Authority (PA) by September 15th. Israelis could be in for some painful scenes. The army did not destroy the Gaza synagogues, and they will no doubt be looted by Palestinian mobs. Israel has asked the PA to prevent that, but the regime has little control over the militant masses.
