Jennifer: Israel's fear of the Unknown !!

Reader comment on item: Insight into Obama's Middle East Policy?
in response to reader comment: Why here, why now?

Jennifer: Your comments are thoughtful.

I though about it also, why Olmert is trying to wrap-up a quick victory against Hamas and atleast "clean-up" their weapons and infrastructures.

The answer: Israel fears Obama, they want to clean the mess, before they can hear suprises from Obama.

But here is a thought for you: What if Hamas appears like the David infront of the Golliath? typically like Hizbollah? (so far Hamas is still firing a lot of Rockets)
