Reader comment on item: Why Hamas['s Electoral Victory] Leaves Me Neutral

January 31.2006

Six kassam rockets hit the Negev today. Two islamic Jihad operatives were killed in a gunfight in Araabe, near Jenin.

Tomorrow, Amona, a small illegal housing project will require many troops to help with the removal of the settlers.

Israel is late in reacting to these events with force. IMHO, any silence, show of timidity send a signal that Israel is an open season.This kiss and tell attitude is evident in Iraq and Afghanistan as well. When Islam hits and gets away with it, the planners, initiators know that the message is:bring it on , we are your victims.
