War in Gaza the Peace Now style

Trade unionist, peacenik activist, and now Defense Minister Peretz ordered the IDF not to destroy infrastructure in Gaza, lest the Palestinians unite around Hamas. Peretz somehow missed that the Palestinians are already united around Hamas. Indeed, the Palestinians voted for Hamas. Peretzís peacenik vision of warcraft is opposite to the Israeli strategy that worked in Lebanon: there, Israel bombed infrastructure until the world and the Lebanese government agreed to restrain democratically elected Hezbollah a bit.

Peretz lambasted Barak for failure to develop anti-Kassam missile defense system during his term as prime minister. Peretz, too, didnít order developing such system during his year as a Defense Minister. Peretzís idea of countering missiles from Gaza with passive anti-missile system rather than active ground operation strikes a common ground between pacifism and lunacy.
