An election victory by Acting Prime Ehud Olmert and his Kadima party will make it much harder to fight Hamas, Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday. "It will be a lot more difficult to defeat Hamas after four years of Olmert and Kadima," Netanyahu said in an address at the third-annual 'Jerusalem Conference,' one week before Israeli elections. The Likud leader, who is trailing badly in the polls, lambasted Olmert's plans for a large-scale withdrawal from the West Bank, especially in light of the surprise Hamas victory in January's Palestinian parliamentary elections.
