It seems that maybe Israel's policy is working.
To be honest, I think Sharon is more of a "legitimate target" than teenagers going to a disco. [A friend of mine had her 90 year old relative
blown up during passover dinner.]
If Hamas spends effort to do targeted killing of political figures, like Israel does, as opposed to their speciality of indiscriminate murder of
innocents, that's an improvement.
It is a war, after all, and those two types will fight it to the death.
Better that everybody else gets on with their lives until the warmongers are exhausted.
And yes, the threat of the USA actually does seem to have scared Hamas.
The USA is less discriminating in their aerial attacks. Israelis use helicopters with 5-10 lb warhead rockets against targets that they have been
tracking for weeks and months. The USA uses 2000 lb bombs, and its human intelligence is worse.
Israel did that once, and killed many innocents---it was a disaster.
