    Is Hamas Preparing for War?

    Is Hamas gathering arms for self-defense against Israel, as its representatives claim? Or is the militant Palestinian organization planning a major assault against Israel, possibly with the help of America's nemesis Iran?

    Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert believes he knows the answer. In an interview with TIME, Olmert described Palestinian Prime Minister Ismael Haniyeh as "a terrorist" and accused him of personally masterminding the transfer of $1 million in funds from overseas for "terrorist actions against Israeli citizens." Olmert's remarks were seen by many Palestinians as an attempt by Israelis to discredit the Palestinian unity government.

    But Olmert's wariness over Hamas is shared by U.S. and Palestinian officials. They told TIME that Hamas — despite its public commitment to a new coalition government with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas — has used a five-month cease-fire with Israeli forces to stage an unprecedented arms build-up in the Gaza strip. "They're armed to the teeth," said one senior U.S. official. "This is not like your average little militia." Indeed, one Israeli official said that, in recent months, Hamas has sent "dozens" of militants to Iran for advanced training in weapons that can destroy aircraft and tanks. Hamas insists that Iranian aid comes solely in the form of financing for the cash-strapped Palestinian government bureaucracy.

    same thing as every other cease fire

    has used a five-month cease-fire with Israeli forces to stage an unprecedented arms build-up in the Gaza strip.
    you know what FFiB... I think we are in big doo doo... I think this is all orchestrated and is part of a bigger plan. The deliberate kidnapping of hostages to neuter the UK, and maybe us, the kidnapping of the Israeli soldiers, now the build up by Hamas... they don't want peace so really, we have nothing to negotiate with. Every "cease fire" is used to re-arm and you can bet a ton of things were learned in the Hezbollah attacks... they started it and quickly turned the whole world against those aggressors, the Jews... this has emboldened them. They believe, and are prolly correct, that NO MATTER what they do, there are enough Jew haters to allow them to get away with it. No matter what they do, we still give them money, and the world media gives them love.
