The Zionist Conspiracy

It's odd that even most opponents of the Sharon plan to dismantle the communities in Gaza and northern Samaria refer to the plan as "disengagement."
The term "disengagement" is obviously meant to connote a positive meaning to the plan, suggesting that Israel will be able to disengage from the Arabs.
But the question of whether or not this is a "disengagement" or "a retreat" or "surrender" is subjective.
It seems to me that "unilateral withdrawal" is the most value neutral and objectively accurate term for the plan. One can support unilateral withdrawal by seeing it as a means to "disengage," or oppose unilateral withdrawal by seeing it as a retreat that will encourage further terror.
