Arens has pointed out some of the significant issues facing Israel on this subject. Unfortunately Arens was never seen as sufficiently "native" so as to become a PM. Barak has taken on the airs of the Olmert administration on this subject, seeking to create an impression of competency in the place of actual competency. There will be significant gaps in any defensive system of this kind. The real and painful solution of cleaning out Gaza will only occur I fear at a point when more Israeli lives will be lost than had to.
