The unintended consequences

of Israeli Prime Minister’s policy of restraint reports Arutz Sheva:
Just this morning (Monday), three armed Arabs stabbed and robbed a Jewish truck driver near the Arab village of Bidya in the Shomron. The Arabs drove off with the truck, which police and army forces later found in Kalkilye, east of Kfar Saba. The forces continue to pursue the terrorists. A Magen David Adom crew treated the victim's stomach wounds, and evacuated him to a hospital in light-to-moderate condition. The incident occurred between Ariel and Elkanah.
Ahem, since this is the face of restraint; let’s say we put off the peace for a bit.

Oh no, TLA, let's not go overboard with this one. Heard it on the radio almost in real time: nothing to do with Olmert or politics: a purely criminal enterprise.

Olmert has enough to answer for already.

Your obviously a mensch Snoopy, while I, possess a decidedly spiteful streak. Two thoughts to take under consideration.

What I am trying to suggest in my rather inarticulate way; is that the atmosphere which has been created under the Olmert Administration since last summer, and been publicly reinforced within this past week under the ceasefire, creates an ideal environment for these kind of daring attacks.

If the IDF won’t act under a political mandate what does anyone have to fear under criminal auspices? One thing very few take serious note of is the role crime plays within the power structure of the Palestinian Authority and the role crime plays within Palestinian society as a whole.
