The summer of 2005 is permanently engraved upon the memory of Israeli society as the time when thousands of Jewish civilians were forcibly removed by their own government from their homes in northern Samaria and the Gush Katif bloc of the Gaza Strip. These homes and other community buildings were then razed as part of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's disengagement plan. It was a long, hot summer of dashed hopes, prayers, destruction, and the tearing apart of a dream. Today, all that remains of the communities of Gush Katif are photographs, diaries, and memories. However, its indomitable spirit lives on among its former residents. For those who never lived in Jewish Gaza, The Expulsion of Gush Katif provides a clear picture of the suffering of its residents and what they went through when their homes were destroyed. It is also a moving record of faith and strength, and hope for the future.
