A Terrible Time?

In a recent post, DovBear touches on something that I've been wondering about for the last few days.

These last few weeks I've heard "This is a terrible time, even for those who agree with the Disengagement." But I hear that mostly from those who are opposed to it.

Is it true? Do people who view the disengagement as a good idea look at it as a terrible time, a necesarry evil? If you believe Israel is being made more secure, that lives will be saved, that its a good it a terrible time?

I'm inclined to say yes, or at least to say it is a rough time (which speaks more to objective circumstance than something like "terrible"). What do you think? Is there anyone out there that thinks this isn't a terrible time?
