Palestinians: Israel demands 15-year lull, Morsi guarantee - Israel News, Ynetnews
terrific I have no doubt that the entire UMMAH rejoiceth
I can't see that load of crap being accepted.
Israel knows this and will use it as an excuse to kill a lot of civilians.
These are essentially the conditions Sharon imposed on the West Bank. Notice that if Hamas does not accept these demands, the goal of the operation changes from ending the rocket fire to destroying the Hamas regime. No doubt this change in objectives will cause the deaths of many more Gaza Arabs, but we know from their actions that the Hamas leadership is indifferent to the number of Arabs who die because of their actions as long as they survive.
If the Hamas leadership does refuse these terms, let's hope Netanyahu stays strong enough to follow through on this program and let's hope the next generation of Gaza leaders who will come to power as the present leaders are captured or killed in the course of Pillar of Defense will be able to temper their hatred of Israel with some compassion for the people of Gaza so that this sort of operation will not be again necessary in the future.
Israel is still doing damage control from its meat head approach in cast lead.
What damage? The only thing that changed because of Cast Lead was the noise level of Israel's enemies. The failure of Cast Lead resulted from Olmert's refusal to pursue the operation until the terrrorist leadership either capitulated or were destroyed. Pillars of Defense is Israel's effort to do damage control for the failure of Cast Lead.
Some examples are that BDS saw a big jump after cast lead. Iam is growing.
Only the noise about it is growing.
Those demands just show that Israel doesn't really want peace.
It shows Israel intends to establish peace either by Hamas accepting these terms, essentially capitulating as the PLO has done, or by going into Gaza and this time destroying the Hamas regime by capturing or killing the entire leaderships of Hamas and the other terrorist gangs.
