For two years I have been saying on this blog that the suicide attacks against Israel are the acts of the government of the Peaceful State of Palestine. When Fatah was in charge, many of the attacks were perpetrated by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, which is part of Fatah. And, with Hamas now in charge, it should be even more obvious, expecially since Hamas comes right out and says it supports the attacks.

Well, perhaps, someone in the upper reaches of the Israeli government has been reading CUANAS (yeah right), because finally, FINALLY, theIsraelis are holding the Palestinian government responsible:

JERUSALEM - Israel said Tuesday that it holds the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority responsible for the deadliest suicide bombing in nearly two years and debated whether to target it directly as an "enemy entity" — even though the attack was carried out by a different militant group.

Israel's U.N. ambassador, Dan Gillerman, warned that the Hamas government's verbal support for the bombing, as well as recent statements by Iran and Syria, "are clear declarations of war, and I urge each and every one of you to listen carefully and take them at face value." Gillerman said a new "axis of terror" — Iran, Syria and the Hamas government — was sowing the seeds of the first world war of the 21st century.

Israeli Prime Minister-designate Ehud Olmert convened key Cabinet ministers and security chiefs Tuesday to discuss a response. One proposal was to hold the Hamas government directly responsible and declare it an "enemy entity," according to an Israeli official close to the consultations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the ministers had not yet made their decision.

Such a declaration could pave the way for direct strikes against the Palestinian Authority and its officials. Until now, an economic and political boycott had been Israel's main tools against the Hamas government.

There really should not even be a debate about this. When one nation attacks another nation, it is the responsibility of the government attacked to protect its people.

Israel must strike Hamas. In my opinion, Israel should destroy the Palestinian regime, and beat the Palestinians into submission.
