Israel- Indecision is A Mistake
By Micah Halpern

Saturday March 1, 2008

I've Been Thinking:

Indecision is the mistake that weak leaders make when they are scared by the ramifications of making decisions.
The worst decision Israel can make at this moment with regard to Hamas - is the decision not to decide.

At this point Hamas is pushing for a long, drawn out, low level conflict with Israel. In this case a long, drawn out, low level conflict with Hamas will only hurt Israel.
Hitting open fields with helicopter gunships shows Israeli firepower, but it does nothing to intimidate Hamas. It certainly does not bring Israel any closer towards secure boundaries.

Israel must take a long, hard, clear look at the situation and then make the decision to act - to really act.
Israel must shoot for a total knock out.
Israel might not succeed, Hamas will probably not be wiped off the map or blown out of Gaza, but Israel and Israelis will be much better off for whatever damage they do succeed in causing.

Time is not on Israel's side.
