Ich bin ein orange

Today, we are all orange. Today we all honor the men and woman of Gaza who are respecting the will of the nation, by sacrificing their homes and their communities for the cause of peace.

According to the New York Times (check out the cool map) the people of Dugit, Elei Sinai, Nisanit, Ganei Tai, Bedolah, Pe'at Sadeh, Tel Katifah, Netzer Hazani, Katif, Kfar Yam, Neve Dekalim, Gadid, Gan Or, Kerem Atzmona, Slav, Radiah Yam, and Atzmonia will be leaving their homes with little to no resistance.

I admire their valor. I respect their sacrifce. I honor their gallantry. And, I pray that the very few people of the remaining hold-out settlements (Netzarim, Kfar Dorom, Shirat Hayam and Morag) soon follow the good example of the other Gaza residents.
