    Netanyahu himself used this stupid argument at the UN: 'We evacuated Gaza and see what happened, instead of being thankful Hamas is firing missiles at us'. Mr. Yahoo forgot to mention that Gaza was evacuated unilaterally, without any credit given by Israel to Abbas (even for the sake of strengthening his political position). The result was that the evacuation appeared to be the result of Hamas' "resistance", as indeed it was. The rational conclusion was that "resistance" works with Israel, and therefore should be used even more. After teaching the Palestinians this major lesson, the PR experts can work of the Israeli fools to complain of Hamas' thankless reaction.
