Stupid As Stupid Be

Hamas, the dominant faction in the Palestinian government, is building its military capacity in the Gaza Strip, constructing tunnels and underground bunkers and smuggling in ground-to-air missiles and military-grade explosives, senior Israeli officials say.

The officials, including a top military commander who spoke in an interview on Friday, said that Hamas had learned tactics from Hezbollah...In Gaza, the Israeli commander said, Hamas has now recruited 10,000 fighters to its so-called Executive Force...and is receiving more military training and sharing a common headquarters, he said, with the Qassam brigades, Hamas’s military wing...Hamas’s improved rockets had a range of about 10 miles, which would allow them to hit the Israeli town of Ashkelon.

But he emphasized that despite Israel’s growing concerns about Hamas, “we’re not going to start a big operation in Gaza.”

Now, isn't that a stupid way to act?

Oh and I found another idiot:-

Israel's prime minister said Saturday he's not ready to order a large-scale military operation in Gaza, despite the military's warnings of a Hamas arms buildup in the coastal territory.

Israel fears that the Islamic militant Hamas is trying to copy the tactics of the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah, which fought Israel to a draw in last summer's war in Lebanon.

Well, since Olmert did so well last summer, what can one expect?
