Update: Olmert gets some answers from the Palestinians

The Palestinians gave a multiple group of answers to Israeli PM Ehud Olmert's stupidity. But unlike Olmert, at least they were honest.

To Abu Abir, spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees, a Hamas-allied terror organization in the Gaza Strip responsible for many of the recent rocket attacks against Israeli civilians the ceasefire that isn't a ceasefire means a chance to reload.

"The ceasefire offers a period of calm for our fighters to recover and prepare for our final goal of evacuating Palestine," he said.

"We will keep fighting Israel, but for the moment we will postpone certain parts of the military struggle."

And Abu Abdullah, a senior leader of Hamas' so-called "military wing," the Izzedine al-Qassam Martyrs Brigades said thatD Hamas agreed to the cease fire "because we need a period of calm to recuperate. This lull in fighting will not bring us to speak about peace."

He spoke about Hamas' official doctrine, which calls for the destruction of Israel and which refuses to recognize the Jewish state.

"The political leadership (of Hamas) will never compromise on these values," he said.

"All the Palestinian people and all the Muslims will launch a direct confrontation with Israel. This may come soon or it may take some time."

Meanwhile Saeb Erekat, the right half of his old boss Yasir Arafat's forked tongue, welcomed the `ceasefire' as a step forward. Of course.

Abu Luay, one of the senior leaders of Islamic Jihad in Gaza, said Israel's call for a cease-fire "proves our rocket attacks work. The Zionists know there is now remedy for our rockets."

The Islamic Jihad leader said Palestinian rocket attacks against Israel would resume "at a time of our choosing."

The IDF reportedly presented multiple military plans to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to dismantle the terror infrastructure in Gaza, minimize rocket attacks and stop the rampant weapons smuggling from neighboring Egypt into Gaza, and both IDF military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin and Yuval Diskin, director of Israel's Shin Bet Security Services warned in recent speeches to the Knesset if Israel doesn't launch a major offensive in Gaza, Palestinian groups there will soon have military capabilities similar to those of the Hezbollah guerilla organization in Lebanon.

It didn't sway Olmert in the least. He went right ahead and pulled the IDF out of Gaza,committing the same blunder he did in Lebanon.

Its one thing to be defeated..but it's something quite different to hand your avowed enemies the tools for the job.
