Why does Israel agree to a cease fire with Hamas, when they know from past numerous occasions, that the same thing will happen again. If there was ever a better example of "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Albert Einstein ........I do not know what it is. Why not end it once and for all? Or rather, why didn't they do that the first time? There is no good will amongst Muslims, especially for Israel. Their ultimate goal is to destroy the Jewish state, regardless of how much time it takes. All Israel is doing by agreeing to cease fires is guaranteeing it will happen again. It may be another four or five years, but it will happen again. That does not even take into account the repeated actions of Hezbollah in the Golan Heights and Lebanon. Also looming out there is the constant threat from Iran.
