Israel has been treating all events since the first intifada as "conflict management" rather than war. Egregious blunders began when Israel didn't hold Arafat to his contract and continued giving "Land for Nothing." Israel has no leadership. Moshe Arens complains that force should have been used 6 years ago in Lebanon and 10 months ago in Gaza. He doesn't get it either. The blunder was to pull out of Lebanon and Gaza in the first place, and the biggest blunder of all was Oslo. Does anyone get blamed? This will be the first time since 1948 that Israel has been at war on Tisha B'Av. Pray hard because our salvation will only come from G-d.
