What if there's another war before there's another government?

Two more Kassam rockets struck Israel's Negev region this morning. One of them sparked a fire in a cactus field and sent local residents scurrying to shelters. Maybe Hamas is trying to show that until there is an official 'truce' they will continue to fire?

An indication of what might be coming is this statement this morning (from the same link) by the Likud's Yuval Steinitz:
Knesset Member Yuval Steinitz (Likud), former chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, has charged that "tit-for-tat" responses by the IDF are equivalent "to punching holes in the sand." The Likud had called for the IDF to remain in Gaza and continue to attack Hamas in order to topple the terrorist organization's grip on the area.
On Tuesday or Wednesday, President Shimon Peres will officially receive the election results and start summoning parties to ask whom they recommend to form a new government. The government-forming process has to be completed as quickly as possible. There may be another war to be fought. We cannot leave Valdemert in charge.
