    Blind Samson continues his quest to cause self-inflicted wounds to himself. First, let us recall Cast Iron, launched under Kadimah's Olmert (2008). Hamas was interested in extending the cease-fire (provided Israel lifted the economic siege of Gaza (known today to bring no benefits). Olmert refused. At the same time, Olmert was conducting peace talks with Abbas, and now claims he was very close to an agreement. Instead of that, Olmert preferred no cease-fire, and the result was Qassams and Cast Iron. Peace talks were suspended by Abbas, and after the Israeli elections Netanyahu came to rule. This self-inflicted wound by Olmert should be taught in history books. We now hear from blind Kadimah once again. The background: PRC attacks Israel and kills some 8 Israelis. In response, the IAF bombs and kills the 4 highest commanders of PRC, plus some 7 of the attacking terrorists. You would think that since Hamas is on a self-imposed cease fire, Israel will be proud of its accomplishment and return to normal. Not good enough for the Yahoos and the Blind. Israel starts massive attacks against Hamas because "The Hamas terrorist organization is the address, and it bears the responsibility." So Hamas responds with many rockets. Now Blind Samson "sees" his opportunity and states: Kadimah, let us start a "Cast Iron II." Well, if you didn't want to conquer and occupy Gaza before, why would you do it now?" And if the Egyptians are still without a permanent President, how can one rely on them to help in calming the situation later? All this lunacy is AWESOME. Is there something in the air? The water?
