    It is quite intersting to see people giving their views about how beneficial (or not) to Israel it will be if Hamas wins the elections. I guess that Israel is all that matters here, and no one is concerned about what the Palestinians want! Is it another sign of racism in this little modern hypocratic democratic country? Anyway, the Palestinins never wanted Hamas in the first place, they had to accept whatever satisfied them emotionally at some point in the middle of their suffering, Palestinians never wanted to kill innocent people on a Sunday-morning bus, it is Israel who created this and asked the Palestinians to like it! Islam prohibits killing innocent people out of a battle frame, and you all know it but ignore it when you want. Hamas never represented Islam or what Islam asks us to do, Hamas always represented what Israel wants to have! Every time there might be a little hope for peace, a little hope for a solution, Hamas conducts a terror activity, and you see Israel immediately breath and stop the hopes! Tt is clear...very clear... If Hamas wins, Israel may be happy, for all the reasons you mentioned, all of you above. But what do you think about how the Palestinians will feel? When are you going to try to open to the real Palestinian spirit and try to get that if you give us, the Palestinians, a hope of peace, we will be more friendly than you expect..but ask yourself about who created occupation? Who created Hamas? Who does not want to have borders? Who does not want to have a final solution? Who does not want bring back what stole? There are other people in this world than Israelis...there are other people who matter, who may need to be asked...but, I would blame "us", the Palestinians for not being able to show our reality, and settling for hiding behind either stupid emotions from Hamas or stupid leadership from Fatah...ironic....

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image as a well-run, normal country whose leaders are capable of keeping a secret.
