HAMAS WILL PAY

It was about two o'clock in the morning - terrorists just over the border in Gaza launch three Qassam rockets at the IDF training base near Kibbutz Zikim. One of them explodes near the tents where most of the soldiers are sleeping. Pandemonium - 67 are wounded from the rocket shrapnel and by concussion. Several are seriously wounded. Ambulances and helicopters rush to the scene and within forty minutes or so all the injured are being treated and evacuated to hospital. In light of the gravity of the Zikim attack and the recent split between radical Hamas and more moderate Fatah, IsraCast foresees Israel declaring total war against Hamas in Gaza.

HAMAS TORPEDOES MILK SUPPLY TO GAZA

A senior IDF officer, responsible for overseeing the supply of humanitarian aid to Gaza , has rejected allegations that the Palestinian population will soon be facing starvation and other deprivation. In a briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs & Defense Committee Gen. Yusuf Mislav said Israeli policy is to ensure that Palestinians in Gaza receive adequate humanitarian aid - Israel refuses to have any contact with the radical Hamas regime in Gaza that identifies with Iran's aim to wipe Israel off the map. IsraCast quotes Gen. Mislav as saying : 'The Hamas regime actually launched a mortar attack on Israeli milk supplies to Gaza today as part of its propaganda campaign about looming starvation'.

HAMAS OVERKILL

What should we do to help President Mahmoud Abbas and his West Bank government and weaken Hamas and its grip on the Gaza Strip? The signs are that both U.S. President George Bush and Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert see eye to eye in principle. The U.S. though may seek more than Israel would like to give when it comes to releasing terrorist prisoners, lifting roadblocks and other security related issues on the West Bank. IsraCast anticipates that the Hamas takeover of Gaza will be viewed as an overkill both of Palestinian lives and politically.

EYELESS IN GAZA

The dust has not yet settled after the takeover of Gaza by Hamas, the radical Islam movement. From his headquarters in Ramallah on the West Bank, President Mahmoud Abbas has appointed a new prime minister Salam Fayyad to replace Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas. Haniyeh refuses to step down contending that his Hamas members control two- thirds of the Palestinian parliament. Now in the U.S., Prime Minister Ehud Olmert talks of a new opportunity arising from the split between Hamas and Fatah. A leading Israeli analyst Dr. Dan Schueftan previously told IsraCast that although today's events should have been visible from the outset it is most important to see their ramifications on future developments.

HAMAS 'POLITICIANS' & TERRORISTS

HAMAS IN ISRAELI CROSSHAIRS

How will Israel react after a Qassam rocket from Gaza killed an Israeli woman driving in Sderot on Monday night? IsraCast says subsequent statements by Israeli officials indicate that Hamas political leaders may be put on Israel's hit list in addition to those who actually send the launchers of the rockets. What is certain is that targeted killings and other counter-terror operation will be escalated now but a major ground operation into the Gaza Strip is not in the offing.

HARD CHOICES ON GAZA

Palestinians kept up their rocket barrage at the Israeli town of Sderot on Friday - this week alone they have terrorized the town with some one-hundred Qassams crashing down by day and night. The IDF has been ordered to step up counter-terror strikes but a senior officer rules out a major ground operation at this time. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert also appears ready to adopt this policy. IsraCast is of the view that Olmert will try and ride out the coming days with the expectation that his Labor coalition partners will elect either Ehud Barak or Ami Ayalon as party leader who will then take over as defense minister.

ISRAEL NOT CZECHOSLOVAKIA!

Several European countries have indicated they will recognize Hamas cabinet ministers in the new Palestinian government.  In Gaza, a senior Norwegian diplomat has met with Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh who has declared his support for 'resistance' - that is terrorism against Israel. Hamas also claimed responsibility for the shooting of an Israeli electricity worker who was repairing a power line that supplies electricity to the Gaza Strip. The Israeli was seriously wounded. In addition, more Qassam rockets have been fired into Israel  from Gaza. In Jerusalem, IsraCast asked Deputy Premier Shimon Peres  if there were now a danger  that  European countries will try and appease the Hamas government  by selling out Israel, like Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany in 1938?

In an interview with IsraCast, Dr. Dan Schueftan said the Palestinian unity government is a ploy to dress up Hamas as a legitimate partner while the terror organization continues to plot the destruction of Israel.

CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is conducting her latest Middle East mission against the background of the fierce Palestinian power struggle.

The bloody clash between Fatah and Hamas is leading to the disintegration of the Palestinian society - that's the view of Dr. Dan Schueftan, a leading Palestinian analyst at Haifa University. Although Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ( Abu Mazen ) calls for a negotiated settlement with Israel, he no longer exerts control over his own Fatah organization in its bloody feud with Hamas that calls for Israel's destruction.
