11. olmerts statement is clear...
israel will act in its best interests reguardless of the actions of hamas..meaning hamas may take a break in firing kassams, but they'll still be rearming...and if israel decides to bomb the tunnels then it shall do so.

nothing to do with "revenge" killing. I was actually waiting patiently while the kassams landed on sederot and israel did nothing to hear the reactions the second israel "had enough" and decided to react.

and it came:
The last thing Olmert wants is capitulation from, Hamas, the statement is goading Hamas to keep up the Qassam's, it seems Olmert is willing to "sacrifice" a few Sderot civilians to accomplish a bigger goal

so what is the "bigger goal"......and i am impressed how olmert convinced hamas to keep up the kassams...those palestenians are just so gulible doing israeli bidding all the time and killing israelis.
