While we are waiting for the mega-response which the followers of Ahmad Yassin promised us after he was killed - and they unfortunately tend to keep their promises - on a daily basis we read commentaries and analyses on his lifetime achievements and on how his death will affect us. Today there is one commentary by Uzi Benziman on Ha'Aretz' Opinion & Comment page. He is right when he concludes: "...the conflict cannot be solved with gimmicks and partial moves. The withdrawal from Gaza - a welcome initiative in itself, if indeed it is carried out - is no substitute for a comprehensive solution that ends the occupation and restores self-respect to the Palestinians and security to the Israelis."
