When asked recently what issue keeps him awake at night, new security service chief replied that it’s the possibility of Hamas carrying out a large-scale surprise attack. It’s now his job to keep that from happening.06:46 12.02.16 | 0 comments
This was your sub heading on an earlier story. I am now waiting for a revised definition of calm! We appear to be in the position of frantically ignoring the "elephant in the room"! Our defense analysts - and it seems,sadly, our political and military leaders - now interpret Hamas p*ssing on us as a light shower of summer rain. What else do they have to do to capture our attention? Enough already! The world attitude to our actions is fixed irrespective of what those actions are. Since no response will be considered "proportionate"- might as well go all the way. True deterrence is the name of the game. "Pretty please"doesn't work any more!
