A former Israeli security chief plans to lead a nationwide convoy to drum up support for the Gaza Strip withdrawal. Ami Ayalon, a retired Shin Bet director who recently joined the Labor Party, announced Tuesday that the pro-pullout convoy will set off from northern Israel next week and arrive in Jerusalem by month’s end. He said the convoy plans to stop off at two Israeli towns every day, holding musical performances and discussions of national policy.
