For some of them Israel's planned pull-back from Gaza evokes bitter memories of the dismantling of the settlement of Yamit in the Sinai more than 20 years ago, and means being forcibly evicted from their homes for a second time.

Avi Farhan, the first settler in Yamit, was also the last to go, staging a protest walk from the ruins of his home to Jerusalem.

 Yamit + Lebanon = Yesha? (Mordechai Sones) July, 2003
Sharon was familiar with the settlements and the settlers because he had earlier "initiated the establishment of...outposts in the front lines of the Sinai to prevent a withdrawal." The Sinai settlers knew Sharon as someone who intimately understood the years of work and danger they had invested in the yishuvim.
Having seen that the IDF eviction of 17 Yamit yishuvim "traumatized the nation," steps had to be taken to create additional capabilities for possible future major evictions without having the IDF brutalize Israelis on television.
Experts in commando operations note that specialized units and armor vehicles plunging through yishuv gates in the dark of night with the element of surprise could preempt the messy civil disobedience that occurred at Yamit and bring the eviction of Yesha to a swift and irreversible conclusion.

Also, the majority of Yamit settlers were drawn by the economic incentives of low taxes, free housing, and minimal interest on loans as much as the dream of a Greater Israel in the Northern Sinai desert while most of the Gaza settlers believe they were truly fulfilling a religious duty to populate a God-given land.
But, perhaps the most important difference is that the Yamit settlers, however pained, knew they were part of a larger peace process: their land for peace.

ELEI SINAI, Gaza — If Israeli soldiers come to remove the Farhan family from their home here in northern Gaza, it will not be the first time the Farhans experience dislocation at the hands of their own government.
The Farhans are among the 5,000 Jewish settlers who were made to leave their homes in the town of Yamit, in Sinai, when Israel gave back the peninsula to Egypt in 1982.
Initial government proposals would provide between $200,000 and $350,000 per settler family, less than most settlers in Yamit received, though lawmakers indicated this week that the sums would be raised.
