Israeli Parliament to Vote on Sharon's Pullout Plan

Two interesting things from the Jerusalem Post regarding the impending vote of the Knesset on Sharon's plan to pull out of the Gaza Strip and the parts of the West Bank.

First, the debate has been hot, and there are grave concerns on both sides over the plan. I'm not an expert on Israeli domestic politics, but the good news is you can read the story from the Post.

Second, the Post issued an editorial pleading with Israelis to go along with the decision. While it's and interesting read strictly in realtion to the issue, to me the editorial has a much wider application in the practical implementation of democracy. That is a lesson we would do well to remember post-election, regardless of the outcome.
