    "...Israel´s diplomatic situation is totally different from what it was two years ago". Well, this shouldn´t be a central parameter when our leaders debate what to do about Gaza. And finally - although I agree that the best and wise thing now would be act with moderation and restraint, I still would like to remind you that the situation is intolerable in many ways. One thing is that Israel has been pushed into a behaviour of half-measures: every now and then there are rockets falling on our cities (and not just now when things heat up). Shalit is still in the hands of Hamas. And what do we do? A few grenades here and there - that´s it. This means that it is, to a large extent, Hamas that is "calling the shots". This is intolerable. If Fatah and Hamas can´t reconcile, and if the rockets keep coming, then we have to move in and topple the islamist regime in Gaza and cancel the coup. Or release all the heavy terrorists and send them to the West Bank and Gaza, in order to free Shalit. This or that. Enough with the Hamas-controlled dynamics of sinister half-measures.
