What is intolerable? Answer: That Hamas controls Gaza and keeps Shalit in prison. And because of infighting, both wihtin Hamas and between Hamas and the other groups, then the situation is constantly volatile, dangerous and - intolerable. The unrest in the region also leads to reassessments among the leaders of Hamas. Will Mashaal and Nazzal be able to stay in Damascus? What will the new leaders of Egypt do, with regard to Sinai and the border to Gaza? And so on. If the "Pharao" Mubarak could fall, and if we now have military operations in Libya, then this means that a lot of dramatic things also could happen in Gaza, or in Syria - or maybe even Iran, which would have an impact on the palestinian islamists. Haniyeh holds on the "card" Shalit and plays a disgusting game of blackmail, and occasionally orders rockets to be fired at israeli civilians. The situation is intolerable, and has been for a long time. Netanyahu and Barak have to release the terrorists and bring Shalit back home, or enter Gaza and topple the islamic regime. But none of the options will come true, for now. The intolerable reality goes on. But things could change, and the Hamasleaders shouldn´t push their luck with another barrage of rockets.
