It fairly obvious to us regular readers that you are on staff at Haaretz, and not just some John Q. Public anonymous casual Haaretz reader out there. Oh, and your arguments are your "logic" is ridiculous. To take one example: It's the fence that cut back on the attacks? Really? Really? The fence, and not the reoccupation by IDF and Shin Bet? Really? I know the "right" uses the argument that the fence "stopped the bombings" too. But us intelligent people know that the real reason the bombings subsided was a result of the IDF moving back in and re-occupying the west bank (just as Arens said), and perhaps the fact that the Palestinians bomb controllers got smarter and more mature, and are holding back their resources until it's time to restart the war of independence in earnest. (i.e. after Israel withdraws to the 67 lines). And then you'll see bombers again, but this time in front of the gates of Tel Nof, Ramat David, Ramon, Hatzerim, the Kiryah, the PMs office, the knesset, the kotel, the TA stock exchange, the Haifa refineries, etc. etc. Arens makes logical sense. You don't, with all due respect. But we regular readers do respect and admire your access to all articles via "TalkBack". It's almost as though "Logios" were the secret "all-access" login Haaretz gives it's authors to put in comments on the TalkBacks to their articles.
