ABSTRACT
Although his Likud government has voted against it, Israeli Prime Minster Ariel Sharon remain committed to his scheme to withdraw from Gaza. Ariel Sharon's plan for Israeli forces to withdraw from the Gaza strip, the question both Israeli and Palestinian policymakers are asking is regarding the cost. The current 2004 Israeli budget had not allocated any funds for a unilateral disengagement plan. In addition, preliminary estimates for compensation to Israeli settlers range between $7000-$1bn. It should be noted that total disengagement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority may be virtually impossible in the short term due to the near total Palestinian economic dependence on Israel. The incentive for Israeli or foreign investors to invest in the local economy will therefore decline, at a time when the key to creating a balanced economic relationship is economic development in the territories.
