"More than half of the residents entitled for compensation applied for the compensation request, I turn to those that did not apply - we are now in the last minute already - and you should apply now and don't wait. Don't be tempted to believe that the disengagement wont be implemented or that it will be delayed. The disengagement will be implemented on schedule. And therefore I am asking you: apply now - it is a waste to wait even one more day."

Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said on Monday that more than half of settlers due to be moved from their homes in the Gaza Strip have submitted requests to the government for compensation and housing assistance.
He urged the remainder to begin cooperating.
"Don't be tempted to believe that the disengagement won't be implemented or that it will be delayed," he told Cabinet ministers at a special meeting to discuss the operational aspects of the withdrawal plan. "The disengagement will be implemented on schedule."
Many opponents - who say the land was promised to the Jews in the Bible - believe the withdrawal will be called off at the last minute through divine intervention.
At Monday's ministers' meeting Sharon was expected to be hear updates on the settlers' accommodation situation and arrangements for the children of the settlers expected to begin a new school year on September 1st.
Sharon was also to be briefed on the security forces' assessment of the expected resistance to the evacuation in the run up to the withdrawal in two week's time.
Meanwhile the Israeli army held a final simulation drill in an attempt to prepare for possible confrontations with settlers planning to resist the dismantling of settlements.
Soldiers practiced using shipping containers to move people by force.
The soldiers taking part in the drill will assist the Israeli security forces in dealing with a planned settlers' demonstration on Tuesday in south Israel, and will then be posted at their positions for the disengagement plan.
With the date for the proposed withdrawal fast approaching, high ranking Palestinian security officers met their Israeli counterparts on Monday to discuss coordinating the disengagement plan.
The meeting - the first of its kind in the run up to the withdrawal - took place at the Erez crossing, the main entry point into Israel from Gaza for Palestinians.
Under the disengagement plan, Israel will dismantle all 21 settlements in Gaza and four small West Bank communities.
About 9,000 settlers are to be moved from their homes - a majority of them oppose the plan, but it is not known how many will try and resist the pullout.
