- Visit Yigal Amir in his cell, or watch his conjugal visits on candid camera.
- Witness a real 'targeted assassination' on live closed circuit television.
- Take part in the evacuation of a real settlement, or put on an orange Star of David, block some highway and verbally abuse soldiers, policemen and -women.
- Shoot rubber ( or, to make it more exciting, metal ) bullets at real Palestinian demonstrators.
- Humiliate Palestinians at a checkpoint.
- Vote off ( by sending an SMS with the mobile phone that is part of the holiday package ) Ariel Sharon, Yonathan Bassi, the Chief of Staff, or the leaders of the Yesha Council
As legitimate and worthty as the cause is for which Shurat Hadin says it stands, nothing can be an excuse for turning the most difficult aspects of our national existence into one big attraction and into another typically Israeli Beggar's Opera.

Apparently the Jewish settlers and their Israeli supporters are not the only ones opposed to ( and trying to prevent ) the implementation of the disengagement plan:
- 18:31 Mortar shell fired at town north of Gaza, one person seriously wounded (Haaretz)
- 18:23 Palestinians fire 3 mortar shells at Gaza settlement, causing damage (Israel Radio)
- 17:12 Palestinians fire mortar shell at western Negev; no casualties (Israel Radio)
PS: The young woman who was wounded by the Qassam rocket has died. While opponents of the disengagement plan say that this proves that terrorism pays and that the disengagement will lead to more terror, its supporters can say just as easily that this proves that the Israeli presence in Gaza cannot and does not protect us, and that if there is a proper border between us and the Palestinians we will have all the means and every right to respond harshly to such attacks, which would be a safer and saner situation than the current one.
- Some people have no limits or shame when it comes to making a political point
- For some Jews the Holocaust is not much more than a frame of reference that can be used at will for every purpose
- Settlers have become desperate, realizing that for the first time in decades they are not in charge anymore in the Jewish state, and that Ariel Sharon does not appear to be willing to back down
