Government seeks to re-occupy Gaza

The Israeli government set ceasefire terms, which Hamas has already rejected: IDF will refrain from firing and expects Hamas to do likewise. Additionally, Hamas must stop tunneling. Livni went even further and demanded Gilad Shalit’s return as another condition of the ceasefire.

Palestinians routinely fired at Israel during the three-hour humanitarian ceasefire. They will not cease if Israel does. The very fact of IDF’s presence in Gaza is unacceptable to Hamas, but the Israeli government knows that our withdrawal would mark Hamas’ victory and that arms smuggling would resume.

The government seeks to transfer the blame to Hamas: Israel unilaterally declares a ceasefire and Hamas breaks it. Then IDF stays in Northern Gaza and conducts forays into Rafah to deal with arms smuggling. Yet, Livni continues to assert that the 2005 disengagement was right.

It remains to be seen whether Barack Hussein Obama would go along with the Israeli occupation of Gaza. Hillary Clinton and perhaps Joe Biden would support us, but every other advisor is pro-Palestinian.
