Did Anyone REALLY Think That The Palewhinians Would Keep Their Word?

I have to admit, the palewhinians did keep their promise about no violence during the cease-fire longer than I expected, but they broke it none the less.
A series of Palestinian attacks and attempted attacks over the past 48 hours have left two dead and several injured, as the violence here continues to reach the highest levels yet since the signing in February of a cease-fire agreement between Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Islamic Jihad terrorists opened fire today on an Israeli vehicle in the West Bank, killing Yevgeny Raider, 27-year, and wounding, Andre Zeidan, 16.

Zeidan said the terrorists blocked the road with their vehicle and started shooting, causing his car's gas tank to explode.

"Yevgeny shielded me with his body to ensure I wouldn't be hurt and then I saw he was injured himself," said Zeidan. "The car started to slow down, so I pushed the gas pedal with my foot and held the wheel to keep it moving."

Hours earlier, the Israeli Defense Forces thwarted a suicide bombing when soldiers caught a young woman, Wafa Samir Ibrahim, 20, wearing explosives strapped to her underwear at a northern Gaza Strip crossing. Ibrahim had a permit that allowed her into Israeli territory for "humanitarian assistance."

Yesterday, an Israeli soldier was killed and two others wounded when two Palestinian gunmen opened fire at an IDF post on the Egypt-Gaza border. Following that incident, a 15-year-old Palestinian boy was arrested at a Gaza checkpoint with five pipe bombs.

The continued violence comes in spite of a cease-fire agreement announced in Egypt Feb. 8 by Sharon and Abbas.

A list of Palestinian attacks and attempts just the past two weeks, obtained by WND, includes: 56 rockets and mortar shells fired at Jewish communities in Gaza, 48 shooting attacks at Israeli civilians and soldiers in the West Bank and Gaza, 26 Molotov cocktails thrown at Israelis, the arrests of five terrorists who planned suicide attacks in Jerusalem, and two attempted infiltrations and attacks against Gaza Jewish settlements.

I say that Israel's response ought to be - NO GAZA STRIP!! If the palewhinians can't keep their end of the bargain, why should Israel keep theirs? This is a deal gone bad with one party reneging on the promise, so why should Israel continue with the pullout of the Gaza Strip and giving up land in the West Bank? The palewhinians were never serious about not attacking Israel, they were just trying to consolidate their power, and now that they have started back into the killing business. I hope Israel retaliates and tells the palewhinians to go stuff it, because that is all they deserve.
