#1 And wasn't it a few days ago that some idiot in the NYT proclaimed that, because there were no successful suicide attacks for a month, that Israel should back down?

#3 Ptah, I think you may be referring to the lame WaPo editorial, which LGF was discussing the other
day at http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=5182

#5 And these idiots do this three weeks before the elections in Israel which is sure to get more votes for the Likud Party. Which is a good thing, but not for the Paleostinians.

#6 Denny,
You've hit the nail on the head there twice (good shot!).
1) The Israelis are democratic. The Paleostinians are not.
2) Yes, the Paleostinians really are idiots to do this three weeks before an election that (due largely to their own actions) will bring in a hardline rightwing party. This will cooincide neatly (but not from the Paleostinians point of view) with the expected opening of hostilities with Iraq.

It's been suggested that Sharon has been asked to cool it whilst all the buildup takes place. Once things kick-off, he may be given a free hand to react to these 'actions'. Then the Paleostinians will have something to worry about.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
