For visitors to Israel this summer, the disengagement from the Gaza Strip proved hard to ignore. "Everybody's orange," said Rebecca Kaminski, from Berlin, with a laugh, referring to the color adopted by the anti-disengagement activists. "I'm on the blue side, I guess." Sitting on the beach in Netanya, the 22-year-old was working on her already impressive tan with a group of girlfriends, all students at a six-week summer ulpan, or Hebrew-language immersion course, in Kibbutz Mishmar Hasharon. They have not been deterred from visiting Israel during its exit from the Gaza settlements and parts of the West Bank.
