It is as simple as 1,2,3. Defense Minister Barak laid out the three objectives of the offensive: dealing Hamas a forceful blow, fundamentally changing the situation in Gaza, and bringing to the cessation of rocket attacks against Israeli citizens. Chances are that these objectives will not be met. I suggest the three real reasons are: 1. To re-elect Kadima and re-empower our own PLO, Peres, Livni and Olmert. 2. To replace Hamas in Gaza with Fatah in order to bring about the one state dissolution and 3. To give Gaza to "our" terrorists - the 'moderate' murderers under Abbas with whom the leftist Israeli establishment can negotiate away our existence.
Conclusion: no elections will ever make any difference here, in the Holy Land: only Hashem will and the best way to fasten this process is to stay away from the polling station. It is not desirable nor it is possible to re-form the State from the inside - as it has no form.
