    1. Why is Israel always asked to make “goodwill gestures” towards the bands of terrorists ?! And more so why does Bibi always cave in and do it? Forget about what the Umos Haolam think and say, you will never get their approval anyway, no matter how many self destructive gestures you make towards them, it will be never be acknowledge or appreciated! Just defend your own people and stop kowtowing to the enemy!

      • Your second question answers your first. Why is Israel ask to act in a way that makes winning the war almost impossible? Because Israel almost invariably buckles under and does it.

        First of all I’ve never heard of such thing as “unilateral ceasefire.” It has a ring to it of committing suicide. And what is the purpose of any kind of ceasefire when our side has the initiative? To let our enemy regroup and reload?
