That Name's Already Taken For The Wall

In other developments, the army decided to change the military code name for the Gaza withdrawal, to avoid offending religious Jews. The name initially chosen was “heavenly splendor,” a phrase used in a Jewish prayer recited at funerals, a security official said. No new name has been chosen, but the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot said “stepping stones” was being considered.

Seems like a good call overall. I would also add that God might be offended also.

Update: Other rejected code names include "Adventures in Unilateral Disengagement," "The Fence and Forget Project," "Visions for a more integrated middle east," "Scorpion Jar" and "Hamasland."
