Looks like the Imperial High Command has been totally caught off guard by the events in Gaza. Now, a former Israeli IDF Intelligence Deputy Chief – General (ret) Yaakov Amidror says that “Hamastan in Gaza” would endanger all of Israel while the IHT reports that the Bush Administration is considering “accepting the Hamas takeover of Gaza“. While this might lead a naive person to conclude that the White House is accepting the endangerment of all of Israel, this really goes to show that the Imperial leaders have developed no common response to the events in Gaza yet. And that, in turn, proves that the recent developments were a surprise of them and that neither the Israeli nor the US intelligence community has any true understanding of what is going on in Palestine.
I suspect that we will soon hear more statements blaming “foreign fighters” for the Imperial debacle in Gaza. Clearly, the Neocons are clueless as to what to do next.
