Israeli settler Shaltiel pictured during a raid on the Palm Beach hotel. The hotel had been taken over by settlers fighting the Israeli disengagement from Gaza, who had renamed it Maoz Hayam (fortified place). But in the event the police and army raid swiftly overcame their resistance and cleared the hotel, in one of the opening salvoes of the withdrawal. The Israeli government disbanded the settlements in Gaza in August 2005.
