Along the streets of Jerusalem, Haifa, and Tel Aviv, Israelis are displaying their "team colors" by wearing ribbons-orange if you're against the removal of Israeli settlements from Gaza and the West Bank and blue if you support the withdrawal. Placed in the center of morning newspapers and peddled on street corners, the ribbons are everywhere-on strollers, backpacks, belts, and even wedding bouquets.
