Corruption is a possible - or potential - drive for disengagement

LA attorney Rachel Neuwirth reveals some very interesting details about why Ariel Sharon wants to go through with this expulsion plan of his, for the purpose of maintaining a big business deal with a would-be contributor named Cyril Kern:
Sharon appears to be personally and financially beholden to a circle of financial backers and campaign contributors who stand to make a killing from the Gaza "disengagement". In addition, at least one, and possibly three, other powerful officials in the Sharon administration seem to have a financial interest in the expulsion/withdrawal operation.

Three years ago, a mysterious loan that Sharon had received from an old friend and former army buddy, a wealthy British businessman named Cyril Kern, dominated Israel's headlines. Sharon had apparently used the money to pay a stiff fine imposed on him by Israel's election authority for his solicitation of illegal campaign contributions. It is also illegal for an Israeli public official to accept loans from a foreign national. But Sharon, despite a widely publicized investigation by Israel's public prosecutions office, was never charged with a crime. One of the arguments that he used to defend himself was that Kern had absolutely no business interests in Israel; hence, the loan could not be construed as a bribe.
So in other words, this pretty much shows that Sharon has been relying on some bad business partners, not only for questionable campaign contributions, but also for profiteering.
