    Mr.Alofs Sorry but nothing you present to the Pals would satiate their distructive mentality. Who would you begin to deal with? So many clans,tribes,the leaders among themselves are fighting each other and by giving them the air-port,and the rest will not ameliorate the situation.An impossible scenario. Subject of travelling for work in Israel,well they still do.Not as many as before the "intifadas"naturally,but they are earning a living to a lesser degree. Let's be honest,the state of affairs will not change in the foreseeable future.Pouring money at them will not help either as it goes wham,bang into the coffers of the terrorists who use it for weaponry.The analogy of the cheap kassams versus the efficient Israeli weapons' costs $100.000 each.Too expensive I agree. So,there will be an inmpass and nothing,bar reoccupying the strip(unfortunate though)it will have to be implemented.Much to my reservations.Soldier fellow,are you still serving?Or retired?
