"Shimon Peres, a dove by no standard except a peculiar Israeli one, launched an attack on Lebanon, Operation Grapes of Wrath, that cost him the election in 1996. And centrists Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni again helped Netanyahu to victory by attacking Gaza in late 2008. Israelis, it seems, prefer a leader who does not bother to wrap a velvet glove around his iron fist."

As well they should, given where they live and who surrounds them. How many years of Arab delaying tactics before you cease to believe there is a solution? Sadat's own countrymen killed him after signing the freakin peace treaty. And now the Muslim Brotherhood is running Egypt.. oh yeah.. that is going to promote peace for sure.. NOT. Its not in Israels interest to tweak anyone's nose first.. but after 9+ years of constant rocket attacks.. they need a real solution.. My vote: re-annex Gaza. no good has come of them leaving Gaza. None.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's planned visit to the Middle East today was enough to force Egypt into pressuring Hamas into a truce with Israel. According to Reuters, Egypt brokered a deal that would stop the fighting just hours before Israel planned a ground invasion into Gaza. Naturally although a truce has been reached, the Muslim Brotherhood's President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi blamed Israel for the violence in statements about the agreement.

An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire in the Gaza conflict will go into effect later on Tuesday, a Hamas official said.

There was no...
