[quote:Limpan:MV8yMDUwOTE0XzM0NTc4NzM0Xzk4MDFGNTVB] About 10 months after the last Israeli forces left Gaza as part of January 2009′s Operation Cast Lead, some Israeli military intelligence officials met with their American counterparts at the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv. The Israelis said they believed that the invasion had accomplished one of its primary goals, which was to reduce Hamasís arsenal of the rockets and mortars it fires into Israel, as well as the groupís ability to produce more such weapons. But they added, according to a State Department cable later released by Wikileaks, that Hamas was already rebuilding, and that smuggling into Hamas was continuing. The writing was on the wall: Invasion had been a temporary solution. Just a few hours before an Israeli airstrike on Wednesday killed senior Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari and set off a new round of fighting that analysts fear could potentially spiral into another ground war, Jabari received the draft of an Israeli-Hamas peace agreement. Though we donít know if he carried the draft in his hands when the drone-launched missile slammed into his car, killing him and his son, the irony would have been appropriate. The tool of war and the tool of peace coming together, the one obliterating the other. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2012/11/19/israel-gaza-and-the-patterns-of-the-past/ [/quote]
