The article describes Neve Dekalim, Gaza. The photo shows an Israeli girl dressed as an angel for the Jewish holiday of Purim earlier this year in a place called Neve Dekalim, which means "dwelling place of palms." But things are far from tranquil in this Jewish settlement, one of 21 in the Gaza Strip set to be evacuated in August. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, one of the architects of Israel's settlement policy, argues that unilateral withdrawal from Gaza will help secure Israel's borders. In what passes for cooperation in the Middle East these days, Palestinian and Israeli officials agreed in late June to demolish the suburban-style homes in Neve Dekalim and other settlements. Israel will pay the Palestinian Authority more than $50 million to destroy the houses and cart away the rubble, providing jobs in Gaza (where unemployment tops 40%) and money to build new homes.
