Fate of Greater Israel signed and sealed

This excerpted article posted at Free Republic from Jewish World Review signifies a notable turning point in the "disengagement" plan of Bush and Sharon. The sure promises of the Lord concerning the future and integrity of the reborn Nation of Israel are being pushed more and more into His lap to prove that, indeed, His Will will stand in the end.

Are you guys ready for this? It's going to get messy. Oh, I'm not talking about the efforts of the Yesha supporters to resist this physically. I'm talking about when the Lord end-runs their noble yet ineffective efforts -- whatever form they take -- and handles it Himself.

There's going to be a lot of incredulous Jews standing in Israel -- and a horrified world grappling with the stark reality that there most certainly is a G-d in Israel and His Word stands in the end. It's not about us. It's not about them. It's all about Him.

JERUSALEM — The Israeli parliament approved the 2005 state budget on Tuesday, removing the last legislative obstacle to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to withdraw from the Gaza Strip this summer.

The 58-36 vote dashed hopes of Jewish settlers in the Gaza Strip and their supporters of bringing down Sharon's government before the planned withdrawal and preventing the pullout by political means.

Failure to pass the budget by Thursday would have forced new elections within three months, delaying or even shelving the plan to evacuate all 21 Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip and four in the West Bank.

On Monday, parliament overwhelmingly rejected a national referendum on the pullout, a move advocated by the settlers that could have put the plan on hold.
