    Imagine the police in any country, who have precise information about where a serial killer lives calling him half an hour before they raid his house, givng him time to escape, then storming his house, demolishing everything inside and driving home well satified with their job. The killer finds himself a new apartment and continues to kill...That is, until the police learn of his new address. Then the same routine repeats itself: the warning call, the raid on the empty apartment, the smashing of the furniture...If that idiocy reminds you of a story in some surrealistic novel I'm going to disappont you: this is how the IDF operates in its dealings with the Hamas and other terrorists. The same thing happened in the latest Lebanon campaign: UNIFIL was informed, in advance, of almost every Israeli military action. And any fool can guess that what UNIFIL had learned was spread immediately further afield. That resulted in numerous Israeli casualties... But, the crazyness goes on...
