Israel assassinated its own enforcer.
The Hamas leader killed by Israel had been involved in working out a permanent truce -- just before he was targeted. If Israel wanted to coexist in peace- -why did it target the very Palestinian with whom it had been negotiating for 5 years?
This suggests -- as I indicated -- a cold blooded decision by Netanyahu to escalate the violence. It's easy to do -- simply stage the assassination of a high level Hamas leader.
Here is the story from Ha'aretz:
Israeli peace activist: Hamas leader Jabari killed amid talks on long-term truce
Gershon Baskin, who helped mediate between Israel and Hamas in the deal to release Gilad Shalit, says Israel made a mistake that will cost the lives of 'innocent people on both sides.'
