A good article, eye-opening in the best Haaretz tradition that makes this web-site so popular in the islamic and socialist world. I liked especially the strong suggestion that Olmert should go to Gaza. As we know, Hamas is temporarily holding a cease-fire (at least until conditions on the ground improve to permit it a realistic chance to restart its martyrdom operations). However, it has made very clear that it will never raise a hand against anyone who kills Isaelis. Thus, when Olmert arrives in Gaza (hopefully accompanied by many of his ministers) they will obviously be slaughtered, with the Hamas government looking on benevolently, its hands clean. An exciting scenario, that the progressive world can only look forward to in great anticipation. We expect Haaretz to keep up the pressure in order to make this scenario materialize. This newspaper is a true light for the region, I must admit that I (or the Palestinian press) could not have thought of such a great idea.
