for the gazans to stop firing rockets and mortar at the south.gradually a consensus built up in israel.but still barak the defence minister did not send soldiers into action.he waited and warned gaza again and again.but the gazans were in no mood to heed warnings or take into account their own self interest. so barak sent the idf into gaza to protect israel.parents of soldiers spent sleepless tearful nights wondering if their young would be among the casualties. that is the stuff of wars in israel judge goldstone.we in israel fear war.we do not welcome it.
