...in today's New York Daily News, by Mort Zuckerman:
The sad fact is that everything is going wrong. Terrorist groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad are using the relative calm to rearm and regroup for the next intifadeh. They smuggle longer-range missiles through dirt tunnels between Egypt and Gaza, for use after disengagement against Israelis now across the fence.
And remember this, from the mouth of the animals:

If they do not choose the way of peace, they must be delivered a crushing defeat, so that the illusions of a winnable war against Isreal is shattered.
