Settlers rebuild dismantled outpost
Settlers rebuilt an outpost in the West Bank hours after the Israeli army had dismantled it.

There is an interesting convergence in opinion between the Palestinians and the Israelis on the value of this dismantlement campaign, while Washington, as usual, is off in its own little world:
The move was hailed by Washington. But Palestinian officials greeted it with derision. "This is a theatrical and insignificant step," said Nabil Abu Rdainah, a top aide to Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.

Industry and Trade Minister Ehud Olmert (Likud) told Army Radio on Tuesday that he didn't understand what all the fuss was about.

Those who object to the evacuations "are becoming excessively hysterical," he said. "We're talking about places that are mostly unpopulated, so what's all this drama?"
Settler leaders were reported to have pledged to block the Israeli army whenever possible.
