Israel’s Knesset voted down last-ditch legislation aimed at postponing the Gaza Strip pullout. Three bills submitted by right-wing factions were rejected Wednesday by votes of 69 against and between 40 to 43 in favor. Political analysts said the likelihood of further Knesset moves against the withdrawal from Gaza and the northern West Bank, slated for next month, was next to nil.
