The Expulsion from Gush Katif has now been released. This book aims to educate, enlighten, and preserve the memory of that fateful summer of 2005. After almost three years, the situation for those evicted has still not been rectified. Many remain in temporary housing, having still not been compensated. Communities are dispersed and people remain out of work and struggling to re-establish their lives in a different, yet still impermanent reality. The social effects of the disengagement are vast with both children and adults trying to come to terms with the fact that they were so publically thrown out of their homes and pulled away from the prospering, vibrant communities that they had fought and stuggled to build and remain in.

As time moves on and the realities and effects of the Disengagement become more clear, there are fewer and fewer people on the left that cite the Expulsion from Gush Katif as a military success. Whilst the rockets continue to reign down from Gaza, that number will continue to decrease.

The Disengagement is a reality. The Pain continues despite the time that has elapsed, and it is only through remembering and preserving the memory of Gush Katif that we can go some way, at least, to ensuring that the hardship and agony has not been in vain.
