Israel's Next War (Frontline)

As a new Palestinian leader signs a truce with the Israelis, there is hope that Middle East peace talks might resume after four years of fighting. This summer, Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon is planning to remove Jewish settlers from the disputed Gaza Strip and return it to Palestinian control. But Israel is bracing for a reaction from Jewish settlers in both Gaza and the West Bank. Israeli security forces are warning that extremists among those settlers could, with one major act of violence, raise the prospect of civil war in Israel or trigger a conflict with the wider Muslim world. As the possibility of peace once again seems real, Israel's Next War? examines the small group of Israelis threatening to derail it.
