"The recent developments have left only two players in the Israeli-Palestinian arena: Israel and Hamas. There are no others. The most notable non-player is Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who has nearly no ability to influence events - not in the case of Shalit and not in the matter of the Qassam rockets, the two issues at the center of the current violent confrontation." - Danny Rubinstein Olmert's program for Regime Change in Palestine has been a resounding failure. It is the most incompetent strategic move by Israel since Sharon decided to remake the map of the Middle east by taking Beirut. When one sets a goal of accomplishing something, and in the end not only accomplishes the opposite, but does other harm to oneself as well, the effort was a failure. People who pursue failure for the fun of it are known as Masochists.
