    Without question, Israel has excellent means of surveillance, and numerous Palestinian sources. BUT, why is it then that ALL of these supposed "weapons factories" aren't already known, or at least more than one or two for each retaliatory strike? Why aren't they ALL hit? Sorry Jasper, but the circumstances from one strike to next, suggest a strong likelihood that in the absence of "real" targets that are valid(and in many cases; but not always), in the IDF designates one from a list of Gaza industries. And lo and behold, occasionally there's evidence that one of its random choices may indeed have actually been producing weapons. But that's known as blind luck, NOT "good intelligence". As for the killers of the Rabbi? I've seen absolutely no proof that the three individuals assassinated by IDF hit squads were the actual killers. Have you? In three days it went from there being absolutely no witnesses to the crime(initially thought to be a single car accident), to the vehicle used in the crime being located and identified(by whom if there were no witnesses?), to three unarmed men shot dead in their homes in the middle of the night under questionable circumstances(only one of whom had any weapons available to him; but not on him)? "Intelligence capabilities"? Maybe. Or maybe not. But like so many other instances, we have ONLY Israel's word for it; don't we, Jasper? Meanwhile, that quick response to a crime with no witnesses, resulting in the summary executions of three "terrorists", sure did make Bibi look good, didn't it?

Boycott is the only way to stop the Israeli occupation
