Why did Olmert do it? What would make him rush to sell out Israel to terrorists? He is going out of his way to give the terrorists time to rearm, release prisoners with blood on their hands, and to ignore the advice of his military advisers…. all for the promise of more bombs, and more kidnappings. Take a look at the latest news reports from Israeli media.

As the cease-fire in the Gaza Strip entered its second day on Monday, sources in the Central Command warned of the consequences of extending the truce to the West Bank, claiming it would lead to an escalation in anti-Israel terror activity. (jpost)

Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal has threatened further kidnappings of Israeli troops on Monday afternoon, according to the Hamas affiliated Palestine Info website (Ynet)

Hamas spokesmen, on the other hand, denounced Olmert’s statements as “a new conspiracy” against the Palestinians. Referring to Olmert’s demand that the Palestinians relinquish the right of return for the refugees to their original homes inside Israel, Ghazi Hamad, spokesman for the Hamas-led government said: “This is a conspiracy, especially since Olmert is trying to bypass the core of the Palestinian cause, namely the right of return for the refugees. This speech is lacking in clarity.” (Jpost)
