In addition to Elder’s excellent analysis (see the post below) of those who believe Palestinian-terror supports deserve a state, read Journo’s scathing critique of our government’s continued support for this absurd notion and the consequences for all of us.
The Palestinians have been developing their rocket tech for a while now - more powerful with longer range. If you are operating in a conflict zone and the enemy has effective rocketry, the last thing you need is an exposed position. Gazan settlements were a very exposed position so withdrawl had a definite tactical advantage.
If the settlements had been maintained it was a matter of time before one was attacked by a massed rocket attack.
