The Disengagement Haggadah

Why is this disengagement different from all the peace initiatives that came before it?

On all the peace initiatives that came before it, we offered to give up land in exchange for peace; in this disengagement we give up land with no promise even of peace.

On all the peace initiatives that came before it, we retreated from land to bring peace with the enemy; now with this disengagement we retreat to bring war with our brothers.

On all the peace initiatives that came before it, we gave up land to end the shedding of blood; but in this disengagement we give up land so that we may shed our own brother's blood.

On all the peace initiatives that came before it, we embraced with hope for a better tommorow; this disengagement we proceed out of bitterness, defeatism and hopeless spite.
