10:43 PM Power out in parts of Ashdod from rocket strike.

10:40 PM Rockets slamming into Southern Israel. Ashdod and Ashkelon hit. Israel talking about a Unilateral Cease Fire!

The Israelis are in denial. They simply don't want to fight as much as they must in order to survive. So they fight somewhat less than that and (for now) die slowly. At some moment the tipping point will be passed and they will suddenly start dying rapidly but by then it might be too late to recover from today's irresolution.

“I fear that the main objectives of the IDF operation in Gaza have not been met,” Knesset Member Yuval Steinitz (Likud) said in response to cabinet’s decision on a unilateral ceasefire.

Hamas: Fight to Continue
Reported: 01:25 AM - Jan/18/09
(IsraelNN.com) Following Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Saturday night speech announcing a unilateral Israeli ceasefire, Hamas spokesman Fauzi Barhoum reaffirmed that the group would not stop its attacks. Gaza terrorists fired several rockets at Be’er Sheva shortly after Olmert concluded his speech.

Hamas leader in Lebanon Osama Hamdan termed Olmert’s speech “The second failure speech.” Olmert made his speech in an attempt to avoid a panel of inquiry similar to that established after the Second Lebanon War, Hamdan claimed.

Tactically this is a catastrophe. Olmert, Livni, Barak et consortes have again shown themselves to be lilylivered pussies.

However, I tend to agree with neocon1984 that in the long run this may be a blessing in disguise for Israel.

Hamas is not beaten but weakened and Kadima/Labor have failed which should leave the field open for Netanyahu. Now, Mr Netanyahu may not be as strong as we believe. Some Israeli bloggers are very afraid that he will try to form a coalition with Labor and Kadima. However, give the recent events that may not be politically possible.

Let us hope and pray that the outcome of the election is such that Likud will have to join with the nationalist religious parties. Then Israel may become a strong nation again.

Ironically the Arab world views Israel as their mortal enemy and almost every military leader in the middle-east views them as VERY smart people. Intellectually they may be but politically (as demonstrated with this news item) they are NOT, for the simple reason that the LEFTist politicians who are almost always defeatists are running the show and is more interested in world opinion rather than their own national security.

We have the same bunch of IDIOTS here in the USA and unfortunately the biggest one is about to get the reigns of power as Commander-in-Chief!!
