HERE WE GO AGAIN

The head of the IDF Planning Directorate, Maj. Gen. Nimrod Sheffer, who’s been negotiating indirectly with Hamas, through the Egyptians, knows all that, and he will sweeten and hasten the deal as required. Israel does not want more war.

Since November, the IDF has avoided conducting a major ground maneuver in the south, so as not to provoke Hamas into launching new rockets.

As we’ve seen back at the conclusion of the November clashes, Israel will go a very long way to keep Hamas happy. Which is fine, as long as we all understand that, sooner or later, we’ll have to go in and kill those folks before they kill us.

    I recently heard the Honorable Daniel Kurtzer who was the US Ambassador to Israel at the time of the disengagement (and a frum Zionist) recount that he told then US Secretary of State Susan Rice that the US should expect that Israel will react very strongly to the very first missile from Gaza and that the US should back Israel when that happened. He expressed his surprise that there was no such reaction.
