"Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has betrayed his right-wing Likud Party with his plan to withdraw from the Gaza Strip and parts of the West Bank, a senior Likud figure and former political ally wrote in a letter to party members published Thursday. The letter by Parliament Speaker Reuven Rivlin was a serious blow to Sharon's already shaky standing in the party and came just days before parliament's vote on the withdrawal plan next week." From IsraelInsider.

Of course I fully agree with this charge. The funny thing is that whilst the pro-Arabist UK media drone on about how "Right-wing" Sharon is, the plain truth is that he has been anything but in his policies. The betrayal of the settlers HE encouraged is just one example of this.
