#4 adds to the mystery of what's going on here. why did they agree to the ceasefire in Gaza? where do they stand vis-a-vis Iran? the differences between Barak and Netanyahu have been growing stronger every week. only time will tell - what this really means.

#6 The Israelis agreed to the ceasefire because they got what they wanted --

  • They whacked a bunch of Hamas bad boyz

  • They demonstrated that Iron Dome works

  • They demonstrated that Egypt won't materially help Hamas

  • The round is over, so the Israelis felt good about going to their corner and getting ready for the next round.

    #7 Israel's successful live-fire exercise tested the IDF mobilization scheme, highlighted the Iranian connection and undoubtedly made visible a number of Iranian communications and logistics venues. It also put a little Rabbi Mint in the Hildebeast's mouth as she trek'd through Israel. Short-term benefits, long-term benefits... all bases covered.
