    Some elements of Hamas are doing the firing and letting the other groups fire the rockets from Gaza. This is more to punish Israel for the blockade and actions in Gaza taken to punish the people of Gaza for voting Hamas instead of Fatah. It's also to send Fatah a message. The rockets from Gaza have little to do with West Bank settlements or Har Homa. Yeah, there'd be a reaction in America, but only in the places where the things were happening, not where things were getting better, supposedly. So far only announcements have been made and concrete is being poured in Har Homa for the moment. Wait and see what happens in a week or so after the back channel calls are made. The settlements in the Jordan Rift valley are still "approved" but nothing is going on there at present. Bush is tied up killing health care for kids and defending the practice of torture this week. He probably hasn't found time this week yet for a "WTF" call to Olmert.
