Israel Not Czechoslovakia

For the second time in as many days, a top Israeli security expert has warned that Israel is prepared to strike Iran's nuclear installations, if Tehran continues its drive to acquire the bomb.

Gaza invasion - pros and cons

Israel has not yet found a solution for stopping the terrorist rocketing of Sderot from the Gaza Strip that reached a new level of intensity this week. For the time being, the Israeli government has decided against launching a ground invasion of Gaza to suppress the attacks which are turning Sderot into a ghost town. IsraCast turned to two retired IDF generals for their analysis of the security dilemma. Kadima Knesset Member Yitzhak Ben-Israel said the IDF must be ordered to conduct a full-scale ground operation- this was the only way to halt the rocketing. On the other hand, Labor MK Dani Yatom favors more special operations that should also target Hamas political leaders such as Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

RUSSIAN ROULETTE IN SDEROT

Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip have stepped up their Qassam rocketing of the Israeli town of Sderot as the new school year got underway - the terrorists called it a 'present'. On September 3rd seven Qassam rockets crashed into Sderot some during the early morning when parents were taking toddlers and children to school. There were no casualties but the town was terrorized with panic stricken parents and children rushing to bomb shelters. Thanks to 'Red Dawn', the early warning sirens give civilians some 15 seconds to run to safety. Angry parents cancelled school in protest. The next day the Knesset was reconvened from its summer recess for a special debate on the situation and Prime Minister Olmert's contacts with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. IsraCast asked Likud leader Bibi Netanyahu if Prime Minister Olmert was playing Russian roulette with the children of Sderot. Kadima MK Prof. Isaac Ben-Israel, a former IDF general, also assessed the Sderot situation and why the Israeli government is apparently holding back.
