"We have to stop the rockets," Olmert said during a visit to the Northern Command. Then accept HA's offer to stop bombing and call their bluff. However, I have begun to suspect that although most Israelis rightly aspire to peace with their neighbours, its government has been on a systematic programme of antagonising these same neighbours as a means to strike out at them and demolish them at whatever cost. For example, on what actual charges are all the Palestinian MPs being held? I haven't seen much about this. Can someone enlighten me?
