And another important reason is because there is no serious support for another useless ceasefire by the Israeli public.

Even Israel's strongly Left-slanted news couldn't find supporters for the ceasefire. Only the very extreme Left, like the Meretz party believes that we can negotiate a peace. That's the linchpin of their ideology. They refuse to recognize that the ultimate aim of not only Hamas but Fatah is Israel's destruction.
