This is the one absolutely certain result of Olmert's war on Gaza. He has managed in just a few months to totally eclipse Fatah (which was a week ago about to bring Hamas to the bargaining table) and ensure that for a generation Hamas will dominate Palestinian politics. We must give Olmert credit for what he is. He, and Israel's most dangerous enemy. The man who makes Israel's second most dangerous enemy safe. And as for those loony tunes who don't get it. Well, I warned you a week ago this would happen. I understand exactly how the British - and not the American Revolutionaries in Boston - made those revolutionaries successful. Rule number one. Don't hurt yourself and help your enemy at great expense.
